A Zoosk membership is an exciting way to meet real singles in your area. But if this is your first time trying it out, you might not be sure how the process works. How do you go from signing up to meeting someone in person?
The answer is surprisingly straightforward, and our Date Mix Team (owned and operated by Zoosk) is here to break it down step by step. If you’re thinking about getting a Zoosk membership, but you want a lay of the land first, you’re in the right place! Here’s exactly what the process from matching to meeting looks like.
Start with a Zoosk Membership Free Trial
The process starts when you sign up for a Zoosk membership. If you want to test the waters first, you can sign up for a free basic Zoosk account right now to get the ball rolling. This gives you access to a basic membership, but if you already know what you want, then go straight for a subscription to get access to all the best features. It only takes a few minutes, and you can do it from your computer, tablet, iPad, or your phone.
Create a Profile and Upload Pictures
Once you’ve signed up for a Zoosk membership, the next step in the process is setting up your profile and uploading pictures. Pro-tip, you can do all of this with your free basic Zoosk membership, so you can take your time and maximize the value of a paid subscription.
This step is quite straightforward, but it’s certainly something we recommend putting some time into. Your dating profile is how you choose to showcase yourself to other singles. It’s going to be the first impression for someone you message, or it might be what entices someone special to send you a flirt or a first message. Your one in a million might be closer thank you think.
Get Your Matches and Start a Conversation
Now comes the real fun part! It’s time to start searching through other singles and taking advantage of Zoosk’s more ways to match. You can use the advanced search filters to personalize your search, check out the daily matches selected with SmartPick technology, use the swipe-style matching feature, or just sit back and wait for other singles to take that first step. We do recommend being as active in the process as possible, though, to get the best results.
You’ll need to get a paid Zoosk membership to send and respond to messages. The good news, though, is all Zoosk memberships are affordable. Remember, too, investing in yourself and in finding your special someone is worth every penny.
Continue Messaging and Set Up a Date!
After you find a match you like (or they find you), the next step is the messaging process. You’ve got the ability to send messages back and forth like email or chat in real-time. This is a great time to get to know someone and testing out the chemistry to see if you want to go on a date.
If you’re hitting it off, it could be time to take the next step. For some people, that means an in-person date. What’s great is that you can continue to use the messaging features on Zoosk to arrange your date, or you can take it offline via phone or text.
Once you set up a time and a place to meet, all that’s left is to get dressed up, put on your best face, and head out to meet that person! So you know what to expect, different people like to move to this step at different stages of the process. Some singles like to meet in person shortly after you start chatting, and some singles like to take their time and really get to know someone first.
For singles that like to take things a little slower, you can always include a video chat date in between the online messaging and meeting in person. This gives you a great, low-risk opportunity to get to know the person a little more and start building that connection.
Starting the Process Now
What’s so exciting is that all of this happens by taking the simple first step of signing up for a Zoosk membership. It only takes one match to find your big love. We make finding that person both easy and fun!
