Whether you are looking for a long-term relationship or something a little less serious, Zoosk is a great dating platform for people wanting a more easy going approach to online dating. We’d recommend opting for the paid membership as you will be quite limited in what you can do, and won’t be able to chat or message people without this.

If you want to know more about dating or want some good tips, we’d recommend you check out the Zoosk blog. They also have some great success stories on there. We also really like the Ask Joan Actually topics, they’re good fun to read and informative.
