Zoosk: How does it work?

Zoosk sign up

Zoosk offers a quick, easy and free registration. You’ll just need to complete some basic information about yourself (such as your gender, your birthday, your email address and password) to get your dating adventure started!

Zoosk NZ will send you a confirmation email to your inbox in order to activate your Zoosk account.

Once your account is live, you’ll need to add some extra information:

  • your postcode
  • to upload a profile picture
  • enter some personal information about your physical appearance, your life (kids, divorced, etc), your ethnicity and your level of studies.

How to create your Zoosk profile

As soon as you fill your “Date Card” – the description that will appear in your profile- by giving as many details about yourself as you want, you can have a go on the compatibility test. Your results will be used to define your matchmaking preferences.

The Behavioural Matchmaking™ engine will start suggesting you profiles of users that suits you best according to your personal details, your test results and your activity on the website.

If you need more information on how to best complete your dating profile, we recommend you to check our “How to start online dating ” blog.

Zoosk NZ – a different dating experience: the more you interact on the site the more your chances to find a perfect match will increase

Zoosk has one unique feature that makes it stand out from the competition: it’s behavioral matchmaking system. Basically, it means that Zoosk personalizes your dating experience through the way to behave while using the dating site. It means that the more interesting profiles you read, the way you add likes to profiles and conversation and the more search filters you use, the better Zoosk will understand what you’re really looking for.

In the same way, your profile views help the engine understand how your dating profile is viewed and seen and how it could be improved.

This smart tool helps you to avoid those endless questionnaires used by some other dating sites and eases encounters between you and other highly compatible singles basing the connections on the profiles you have visited, your interests and your romantic preferences.

Zoosk search without joining?

Indeed, that’s also possible. With Zoosk NZ not only you have a free trial (you can read more below), but you can also use its search filter without having to subscribe a full membership.

If you’re not very sure if you’ll find in Zoosk the special someone you’re looking for, you’ll just need to sign up and then you’ll be able to access to the main dashboard with lots of profiles.
However, you should keep in mind that without a full membership you won’t have full access to all the information that’s normally available on a profile.

You should also keep in mind that you’ll also need to upgrade to a paid membership in order to be able to chat and send private messages to other users as well as to check who is interested in you.

Test Zoosk

After testing Zoosk, we have seen that it is very easy and fun to use and, most important, it is effective in connecting singles who share the same location and interests.

You can find singles in their twenties looking for other easy-going guys/girls living nearby to enjoy a relaxed date and people in their forties looking for giving love another chance.

What they have in common is that, like you, they are serious about their intentions: they want to find a new partner!


Main features

Zoosk provides you an array of tools to smooth your search for the perfect partner. You can use:

  • The “carousel”, a tool that shows you photos from other users and you have to state if you are interested or not
  • The Behavioural Matchmaking system to look for potential matches
  • The Scientific Matchmaking Service™ and get a daily match proposition based on your activity on the website and your identified preferences from the type of profile you have selected
  • “MegaFlirt”, a feature that connects with a lot of singles at once. You basically are given the chance to select an icebreaker and send it to many users at the same time
  • Zoosk search by email: keep in mind that you won’t be able to search an user by email unless you’ve already become friends.

Zoosk app

Zoosk app has more than 30 million of downloads, and it’s not surprising! This dating site has managed to become one of the few dating sites to offer the same (if not more!) features on the sites as on their dating app!

Zoosk rating: our opinion

Pros  Cons 
Very extensive local user base

Highly effective behavioral matchmaking technology

Great blog with dating tips and ideas

The platform does not routinely check or monitor its users

There are plenty of dating sites in New Zealand that connect users taking into account their personality type, their age, and their location, but Zoosk a whole new story.

The site relies on the behavior of its users to connect them with other potential dates. In that way, they can use their time online to really get to know someone who already meets their expectations.

Zoosk is the perfect place for those Kiwi singles in their twenties and thirties who want to expand their social circle or find someone special with whom to enjoy the first date!

We recommend you to give it a try. Zoosk is a very popular dating site with lots of successful love stories!

Give it a try and find your special someone right now!
