Has anyone tried Zoosk? I put up a profile, but I have to say, early indications are not good. I’ve gotten 5 messages on there – 4 were scammers and the other one was 60+. Um, not such a good ratio… Sure, I get the old guys on OKCupid, but it’s much more rare that I get a scammer there and certainly not the 4 out of 5 stats I’m getting with Zoosk.

I guess Emma at YepThatHurt’s experience is much more typical than I realized (and you should totally read her blog for safety info). I know I have had my own experience with liars and sociopaths online but have done pretty well identifying the scammers. I had previously been impressed that Zoosk actually mentioned online scammer safety info; I guess with that rate, you have to!

I’ll give it another week or so, but so far I’m not impressed. I haven’t seen any guy profiles that really twirl my skirt and so far, I find the usability much clunkier than OKC (and even worse than some of the BBW sites, which I have mixed feelings about in general). I’ll give it a fair shot though and see what happens.

ETA: In looking at Zoosk, I just saw where one real winner near me updated his profile to say: “LOOKING 4 SOME WET PUCCI SO I CAN EATING” (capitalization his). Wow. Ladies, watch out for your pucci!

I'm a chubby thirty-something gal looking for lust and love, sometimes on the internet...

Have something to say?

  • Damn, the clasp on one of my favorite bras broke! Guess I should just be glad I was home when the girls decided to make a run for it! 7 years ago
  • Also, I somehow agreed to have dinner tomorrow with a random guy I went to hs with that friended me on fb, still not sure how that happened! 7 years ago
  • I started the burlesque class! We did feather boas this week, totally fun! next week is fans! 7 years ago
  • It's been a drama filled couple of weeks, and not even my drama, but feeling better... the ex's new gf is PSYCHO, they deserve each other 7 years ago
  • Wow, my ex seems to have the worst luck, usually caused by stupidity. So why does it hurt so much when his new gf gets "accidentally" preg? 7 years ago
