Thousands of American singles put their trust in Zoosk every day, and for good reason. Our dating site is easy to use and your safety is a top priority. We also use a clever mix of behavioral matchmaking and personalization features to help you on the way to finding that special someone. Above all, we want to make local dating simple and fun for everyone. That’s why we’re one of the best online dating sites for meeting local singles in the US.

Local Singles You’ll Find on Zoosk

After you sign up with Zoosk using your date of birth and email address, the system will ask for your location, which you can change if you decide to move while still looking for a partner. You will then provide a name that other members will see, some photos, and some basic information about you, your background, and the type of relationship you seek. Then, you’re ready to start matching with viable partners in your area. 

The interface makes it easy for you to identify the location of other singles in your area. If you upgrade to the premium version, you can save searches and make modifications as you see necessary. For instance, if you start traveling to a specific city for work, you can create an alternative search that’s different from your hometown parameters. If you decide you’re matching with people who are too far from your home or work — not many people want to spend their valuable dating time driving long distances — you can reduce your search area.

What’s the Appeal of Meeting Local Singles?

Dating can be time-consuming. If you’ve ever dated someone who lives over an hour away, you or the other person had to travel two hours round trip just to see one another! Or you met halfway to divide the time. If you were trying to meet on a work night, you either had to cut the evening short or show up the next day with bags under your eyes. 

Benefits of Local Singles

The benefits of dating in your city or area are numerous, but shorter commutes definitely top the list. Other benefits include common friends, favorite hangout spots, and the ability to meet spontaneously for coffee, a drink, or ice cream. 

If you have a dog, you can run home in the middle of the date to let it out. Another plus is the ability to ride together to large events where it might be difficult to connect. If you’re going to be having a few drinks, you can meet at either place and take a rideshare to the restaurant or bar. It’s also much easier to entertain in your home if your dating partner lives nearby. 

Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to see each other more, which is essential to the growth of the relationship.

Zoosk’s advanced search filters allow you to personalize your search criteria, including everything from age to location, online status, smoking, children, education and more. This feature is particularly helpful for those singles who know they’re interested in meeting someone locally. It’s also useful when you know exactly what you’re looking for in a partner because you don’t want to waste a lot of time matching with people who don’t quite fit! While looking for local singles in Search you can view their profiles and like them or send a flirty message. Stuck on that perfect opening line? There’s even a fun message helper that gives you ideas of what to say. By being specific with your search, there’s a higher chance of matching with someone who really gets you! It only takes one right match to find your big love. We make finding that person easy and fun!

Chat with People Online Now

If you’d rather get straight to chatting, using the Online Now feature is a fun way to connect with local singles.  Browse for singles who are online now, view their full profiles and send them a fun wink, message or chat request. This is a really great option to start up a conversation easily and quickly since you’re able to see if they’re already online. It’s also a good opportunity to gauge someone’s activity. Are they actively online or only checking in periodically? This can help you figure out if you’re on the same page when it comes to online dating. Dating can be awkward sometimes, so this is a fun way to break the ice and start chatting. Looking for real people with real intentions? We’ve got you! Another great thing to know about Zoosk is that your safety is a top priority for us! So while you’re online, we do all we can to keep you secure. With strict verification processes, you know that the local cutie you’re chatting to is who they say they are! 

And Even More Ways to Match

With Zoosk, there’re even more ways to find your special someone! Match on Carousel: Familiar with swiping apps? Then our Carousel is a feature you’ll feel comfortable with. On Carousel, you’re shown a snapshot of someone who you can say yes, no, or maybe to. However, unlike Search or Online Now, you aren’t able to view their full profile and both people have to like each other before you can talk. The upside is you can know if someone likes you back before you reach out! You both like each other? Awesome. Get the conversation going by sending your match a cute crush. This feature also helps Zoosk understand your preferences,  so we’ll be able to suggest more compatible local singles moving forward. Use Our SmartPick™ Algorithm: Zoosk’s SmartPick algorithm uses behavioral matchmaking with your preferences to send you daily matches. The best part?  The more times you use it, the more accurate it gets! Find a local single you’re into? Great! Start chatting and start your love story today.
