#1 Matchmaker for Lesbian Singles

Dating can be a challenging and frustrating experience when you are a single lesbian. Instead of looking for a possible connection at the usual lesbian scenes, you should check out Zoosk. This matchmaking site has helped many single lesbians find new friendships, casual dates, romantic flings and long-term relationships. With a cheerful blue color scheme on their homepage and screenshots of beautiful lesbians, Zoosk welcomes users to their site. Using a unique behavioral technology that assesses and keeps track of your behavior on the site, Zoosk pairs you up with matches. Whether you are on your computer or on a mobile device, Zoosk makes it easy to find a match.

How It Works

To be a part of the Zoosk lesbian community, you will need to create a profile. The first section consists of answering general questions about your location, ethnicity, body type, height, and smoking preferences. If you like, you can share a personal story and write a description about your ideal date and perfect match. This can help users understand the type of woman that you are looking for. Finish your profile by posting a photo to your profile.

Once you have given other members a glimpse of the real you, you can search for your ideal lesbian match. Similar to a videogame, Zoosk shows you step-by-step how to search through profiles. You have the option of doing a basic search by selecting filters like distance, age range and location. Or you can select extra filters such as body type, relationship status, ethnicity, education level and smoking preferences if you want to narrow down your choices.

When you find someone that you are attracted to, send a virtual wink to get her attention and add her to your Favorites list. You can also use Zoosk coins to send her a virtual gift. Zoosk coins are earned by completing company offers and surveys, or you can purchase them. You can also use Zoosk coins to purchase the Boost View perk which will highlight your profile in search results.

You can see how popular your profile is on Zoosk with the Boost feature. This page displays your rank on the site and shows you how popular you are on a scale of Not Popular to Very Popular. You can increase your chances of finding a great match by using the MegaFlirt feature. With MegaFlirt, you get to pick a prewritten icebreaker that is sent in a mass e-mail to everyone.

Another fun feature on Zoosk is SmartPick, which helps find matches that are likely to be good matches for you based on your preferences. You can increase the accuracy of SmartPick by answering survey questions like “Would you date someone that has a child?” or “Would you date a smoker?” A great way to view a photo parade of single lesbians is with the Carousel feature. With each photo, you are forced to select “no”, “maybe” or “yes”. You can also view your mutual matches and members that have shown interest in you.

Browse Singles in Three Ways Using Zoosk

1. Profile Carousel

View Zoosk singles by photos and age one-at-a-time, based on who Zoosk's SmartPick™ Behavioral Matchmaking engine thinks you'll be mutually attracted to. It learns as you click to show more relevant results.

2. Search

Enter your criteria for a date and search. Zoosk shows you results that fit as many of your criteria as possible, while adjusting based on suggestions from the SmartPick™ Behavioral Matchmaking engine.

3. Zoosk SmartPick™ Matchmaking Service

SmartPick™ shows you one profile every 24 hours, based solely off of what we know about you and your preferences from the clicks you've made, messages you've sent, and more. Simply click "Like" and if the other person likes you too, we'll make the introduction.

Safety

Safety is a top priority at Zoosk. A human being verifies every Zoosk profile before it becomes visible, and they use proprietary technological solutions to verify that people are who they say they are. Zoosk provides private, invisible browsing to all members and guarantees never to disclose any of your personal information to a third party.

Zoosk Membership Prices

Browse singles on Zoosk for free, and even send messages. Once you've been introduced to someone you like, you can upgrade to a paying membership. Subscriptions unlock access to messaging, winking, chatting, the ability to find out who viewed your Dating Profile, and SmartPick™ features. Start at $29.95 per month for one month, or $19.95 per month for three months; the cost of Zoosk decreases as you purchase a longer subscription. You may also purchase virtual currency to boost your profile's visibility, send gifts to members, and use upgraded messaging features.

I met an amazing guy in a week and a half!

I joined Zoosk on a whim and ended up meeting the man of my dreams. He was geographically undesirable (he found me), but we clicked on all cylinders (email / phone) and pursued the connection. We are now living together and planning our future together. Needless to say, I am still shocked, but oh, so happy and content. Thank you Zoosk!!!

i really like zoosk. there are some things that are limited on the site but i am able to put in my profile what kind of man im looking for: personality, bodytype, height. smoking yes or no. drinking yes or no. i get constant views, many times you can tell which guys are more interested than others based on this only. in my case, i was limited in my finances and couldnt purchase a subscription for a few weeks. i could still see who had viewed me. another thing that i like about zoosk is they have an "insights" area where you can see where theyve compiled all the info of who you like("view")and who likes you("viewed"). who youre attracted to and whos attracted to you. theres also a compatibility rating at the bottom of some profiles. this is the site in subscribing to.

I am in my 60's and female and they really have the best single men out of all the sites...I have tried.

Submitted by Sharon Pierce Capp

I was on this site about two years ago. In February of 2013 I met someone. We were engaged after three weeks and happily married in a church wedding in July of 2013. We just recently celebrated our first anniversary. I might also mention that we are 69 and 71 years old. I have been on many dating sites off an on over a 6 year period and consider Zoosk the very best one.
