Real or Fake? is a real dating site. If you want to join a dating site that allows you to meet a person with whom you can go out on a date, Zoosk could be an option for you. There is no indication of professionally run profiles on this dating site.

Free vs Paid

Zoosk offers free registration and delivers. There are some features you can access as a non-paying member. However, if you want to get in contact with other users you will have to either buy a premium membership or a coin bundle. One of this site’s biggest advantages is definitely its popularity. Zoosk contains millions of profiles from all over the world. Although there is no matchmaking game or questionnaire, the site will show you profiles of people most likely to pique your interest according to your previous behavior on the app. The Carousel feature allows users to see a short overview of profiles in a user’s vicinity. The bad side of Zoosk is the fact that it is relatively cheap, and there is a possibility to create a fake profile using someone else’s photos. Thus, you should watch out for fake users.

An inconvenience about Zoosk is the fact that there is no bisexual partner option. However, the site has regulated this by allowing users to have a second profile for free, through which they can contact members of the other sex. This solution is a bit awkward, but at least they acknowledge and accommodate bisexual members.
