Dating online 100 with no credit card subsription
If you are a man in your 40s or 50s and you're "pinged" by a hot looking woman in her 30s, chances are it's either a scam artist from Ghana, or an Eastern European cam girl looking to rip off credit card numbers. Zoosk shakes you down and nickel dimes you to death. Bring back the good old days of people getting introduced by friends and people actually putting themselves out there to approach people in person when interested! After having put in the requisite search time, and opening with an individual greeting, I received a total of only 8 responses..three of those were hurtful and rude.
It's almost like being strong armed on a street, being taken by your ankles and having your head smacked against a sidewalk until every last nickel and dime bounces out of your pockets. I have been on this site on and off for a few years. You are better off trying to find someone at the grocery store. Are shown profiles of all women when I asked to receive profiles of a limited group. They couldn't even put more effort than that into making fake profiles to make it seem like there's actually girls on there. I got a message from a normal decent looking woman.
To answer your question: it depends on what you mean by legitimate.
You won't build any connection because Zoosk just wants your money. I wasted a few hundred dollars off and on over two years. I agree with the other reviews that Zoosk has a lot of fake profiles and low quality matches.
So Zoosk is a place to come together and have someone take your money.
It's a complete and utter joke, all they focus on is how they can squeeze more money from you, you can even click the option to not renew, and they will just renew you anyway, then if you cancel they give you the runaround, you can even call anyone to resolve the issue.
Even sites that may once have been good can go bad.
They may be sold to a different owner who uses different standards or may engage in some of those shady practices to boost membership and use. My first recommendation would be to try Lavalife's Intimate Encounters section; you sign up with them and then decide which of the three sections you want to be a part of (Dating, Relationships or Intimate Encounters).
