This dreadful web site is run by chimpanzees with keyboards. The profiles are mostly DOA, copied from other web sites to give you the impression that people actually use this thing. Don't waste your money. Chances of getting a date are zero or worse.
Actually, this web site may hurt your chances of getting a date outside the web site. If you are literate, the profile editor does not publish your writing with paragraphs separated or line breaks. So, forget about being poetic or literate. This is actually technically easy to do, so it shows that the site was programmed by idiots.
Like other personals web sites, it has the lowest form of scum on the web known as censors. Humor is strongly discouraged. It's odd that this thing is advertised on the Onion. It would be more appropriate to put it in Church Weekly or Prudes Periodical. Not that I want to be nasty but they won't even allow you to say when your profile is due to expire.
Once you realize you have no control over your own content the best way to rid yourself of this annoyance is to go to Settings (up top), cancel your subscription, delete your photo, and change your name.
I subscribed for one month but two weeks is enough to tell me that it's not worth bothering with this boring piece of garbage. I may have a couple weeks left but I just want them to remove my profile and stop sending me "scientific matching" messages with non-existent women.
In summary, I would not recommend Zoosk to a friend.
