Zoosk coins offer a few ways of amping up your profile to get more attention, such as a "Boost" where your profile moves to the top of the search results, buying virtual gifts to send to other members, or finding out if and when someone has read your profile or email.
"Liking" Zoosk on Facebook or installing the cell phone app get you coins, as do daily raffles for logging in and filling out partner offers such as memberships with Net Flix.
I'd only recommend it for folks wanting something more casual because of the general outlook and focus.
After signing up you'll get a daily "mutual match" in your email, showing you someone else's profile, and allowing you to state yes or no to being interested.
If you say yes, and it's mutual, you'll get a note (but won't know who it is specifically until you pay), and if it's no, you'll hear nothing.
So, for me, this was a search radius of 80 kilometers and men five years younger than me and ten years older than me.
If you'd rather see a larger list of folks rather than one profile at a time, just click on the button that looks like a chess board, and your view will instantly change.
