Zoosk doesn't make their users fill out their profiles unless they want to.
Zoosk uses advanced matching technology called “Behavioral matching” to find potential matches and pair users with their compatible partners.
The last six asked us to friend them on Facebook and never said anything to us again. They obviously didn’t consider whether it would be an appropriate name for a dating site. So we looked up what they’re for and were promptly reminded of Neopets.
(That might be because we didn’t friend them.) Verdict: is terrible. Zoosk Coins are used to buy a Boost feature that put you at the top of someone’s search results (which made us suspicious of the top girl we found every day), a Delivery Confirmation that tells you that a message you sent has been read, a Special Delivery thing that gives a message recipient a pop-up that they have a “special message”, or to buy gifts that—we kid you not—are “fun graphics”, like “flowers, pets, and cocktails”.

Nine of those were clearly fake accounts, so we really got twenty-six replies. Out of those twenty-six, seven didn’t reply to our second messages. Seuss quote, but it’s the only connection we can find.
Thirteen replied to our second messages by telling us we sounded “too old” for them. We’re pretty sure the site owners put all the letters from a Scrabble game in a bag and pulled them out until they had something resembling a name. We’d already bought a subscription; why would we want to invest more in the site?
No wonder we ran into a bunch of girls instead of women.
That girls instead of women thing was the worst of it.
