Like many dating sites, Zoosk offers free browsing and message services.
However, it does not let you respond to other members until you pay for a membership, then you can wink and chat your heart out.
"Brainiac sites like Ok Cupid, which tend toward math-based equations to find you romance, are good choices for people who think they fall outside the norm to some degree and want a geek who might get lost in the cracks of a bigger site," Masini says.
Ok Cupid isn't the best choice for people who are looking to get into a long-term relationship; the vast majority of users are under 30 and not necessarily looking for anything serious.
Every day, the site sends users six matches based on compatibility, but it leaves much of the matching up to the user.There have been complaints that Zoosk sometimes matches you with members that are not a geographic match.And communicating with other users can be frustrating if the other user has a free membership. JDate is one of the oldest niche dating sites on the web.Also, the last thing you want on such a busy schedule is to swipe across your smartphone screen for a date.I mean, I have nothing against dating apps in general, they are great and most importantly they work (if you have enough time on your hands to go through all the profiles that are flagged for you by the automated algorithm).
