Done with the blind dates? Delete your Zoosk account in a jiffy!
Dating sites have invaded our lives in the recent past as blind dating became the rage in the west and even in urban metros in the more conservative eastern countries. Online dating started as an off-shoot of social networking sites. People were getting married (and divorced!) over Facebook. This gave rise to matrimonial sites that invited educated and like-minded people to chat with each other and ‘arrange’ their marriages.
However, the younger generation wasn’t interested in marriage-oriented websites and just wanted to date casually, taking it to the next level only if they found true love. This started the trend of strictly dating sites like kiss.com and match.com (1995) and slowly college students and working professionals took to finding their ‘soul mates’ sitting in the comforts of their home. Zoosk.com is one such extremely popular dating site with more than 23 million hits per month (and growing!). Millions of ‘Zooskers’ around the world chat in the virtual world of this singles dating site everyday with the hope of finding their ‘one true love’. It’s not for nothing that the site boasts of being ‘the world’s largest social dating community’!
There are currently 50 million Zooskers from 60 countries world-wide
But what happens after you meet your virtual Zoosker in real life is another story altogether. Many people lose interest after they end up with numerous failed encounters on sites like Zoosk, SpeedDate and Badoo. Fake profiles and casual flirts abound in such sites and if you are looking for a serious relationship through such sites, you better be prepared to get your fingers burnt in the process!
