Since its launch in 2007, Zoosk has attracted over 50 million members worldwide to join its revolutionary dating site that feels more like a fun social networking site than a matchmaking service. Available in 25 different languages in 70 countries, Zoosk takes gay dating to new heights. Browsing through thousands of profiles can get boring quickly. That’s why Zoosk offers their new Behavioral MatchmakingTM technology for daters everywhere. All you need to do is maintain an active and complete profile, search for other gay members on Zoosk, and interact with them regularly. Zoosk’s powerful new system considers all your activity only to bring you the most compatible gay men that peak your interest.

Zoosk Video Review


Everyone is on the go these days, and Zoosk knows it. You should be able to access your dating profile and potential gay matches all from your mobile device. Zoosk’s mobile app and website caters to those busy individuals. With their dynamic app and mobile site, you will never be far from your recent messages and notifications.

You can also check your daily matches, courtesy of Zoosk’s Scientific MatchmakingTM Service. Your preferences and likes are always recorded into the system, thus returning you the best profiles of gay men that fit you.

Three Different Ways to Browse on Zoosk

1. Scientific Matchmaking ServiceTM by Zoosk

Gay members will receive a new member profile every 24 hours with Zoosk’s Scientific Matchmaking ServiceTM. The preferences on your profile indicate the best matches that Zoosk can return to you. Use the ZSMSTM survey and answer the questions that are most important to your potential matches. Find men who appeal to you just by updating your profile. Let Zoosk’s Scientific Matchmaking ServiceTM do all the work for you.

2. The Carousel

View more gay matches by playing the Carousel. The Carousel works by swinging new profiles of your preference to you. You decide whether you would like to meet the person or not. If you choose “Yes,” or “Maybe,” you will be given coins to send virtual gifts to other members. Zoosk’s Carousel also works with their Behavioral MatchmakingTM technology. Depending on your answer, the system will update your choices to bring you matches that are closer to your recent carousel choices.

3. Search

Inspect individual matches by using Zoosk’s search option. Zoosk’s search function returns one result at a time, allowing you to chat instantly, send a wink, or save that person to favorites. You can also make changes to find men closer or further from your location. Changes can be made by clicking edit search at the top right of the search screen. Any new choices you make will be updated and recorded into Zoosk’s Behavioral MatchmakingTM system.

Sign Up:

Most members choose to sign up with Zoosk via the Facebook option. Facebook is widely popular, and Zoosk members will have a profile up faster if they join using Facebook. All your information from your Facebook page will be synched to your new Zoosk profile.

You can also sign up for a Zoosk membership with your email address. There are a few more questions involved when signing up with an email address, but once that is done, you can log in and begin working on your profile.


Zoosk cares about their members and they caution members about meeting in person right away. It is better to know a person first online, move to phone chatting, and finally to meeting in person. When you do meet in person, meet at a public place and bring your own car. Never meet another man you do not fully know at your home.


Users can choose from three different membership subscriptions. The longer the subscription choice, the lower the monthly price will be. Users will pay $12.49 (a $17.00 savings) per month if they choose the 6-month membership.

DurationPrice per MonthTotal Price
6 Months$12.49$74.95
3 Months$19.98$59.95
1 Month$29.95$29.95

Ease of Use:

If you’ve used Facebook or other social networking sites, you’re in for a treat with Zoosk. They’ve redesigned their platform for easier access and use. The site follows closely to social media sites, which makes the learning curve less complicated than other dating sites.

The Bottom Line:

Gay members have many more choices when it comes to Zoosk’s Behavioral MatchmakingTM technology and their Scientific Matchmaking ServiceTM. By maintaining a complete and active profile, you’ll be guaranteed more accurate male matches to your profile.
