Today, Zoosk is announcing the launch of our Couple Profiles to allow people in relationships to create and share their romantic journey. Now, Zoosk is the first social network to offer a dedicated place for couples to create, store and share relationship milestones and memories like anniversaries, vacations, special events and more on a joint profile with friends.
These members will be led to a new interface allowing them to create a Couple Profile without the dating functionality that is available to single members. Couple Profiles include a stream of romantic moments, photos, and an about section. We even made this video to show you how Couple Profile works – check it out and tell us what you think in our comments section!
My good friend Brandon uses this joke to illustrate ice breakers. The answer is ‘enough to break the ice.’ He uses this as an example of bad pickup lines. But the truth is that that there’s no such thing as an ideal icebreaker. I once started going out with a girl by telling her that she “looked ridiculous like this, without a mustache”.
This can sound silly, but it covers a few points that I would like to touch on. To work, an ice breaking line has to be unexpected, smart or funny… and appropriate: You have to remember that you want the person to feel at ease.
What should you say when you first get in touch? Use their photos or, even-better, their Facebook Likes, as a topic for a clever comment.
Don’t forget: This first impression also has to represent you. I don’t believe in making yourself look/sound different than how you actually look and talk. This could be trouble later.
It is all about starting a conversation. Just avoid the weather or other impersonal topics. There is no limit, anything can work as a conversation starter. You can even practice on random people before you send that first message to someone you’re really interested in. Talk to your new neighbor in the morning (and ask if their dog has gained weight or of it is its owner who lost some).
Talk to the person next to you in the bus. Talk to a new coworker every day.
Say a little something to the person who serves you lunch.
This will improve your personal life on multiple levels. Say something nice to someone and they will remember you. Say something funny and they will remember you. This will improve your neighborhood life, and help you gain confidence. The next level is to mix both and say something nice and funny to the person you’re after, and you’re well on your way to starting a romantic journey with them!

Many of us forget the “good ol’ days” when men would court a lady, literally, for months before anything intimate would happen…In the 1800’s. Of course, back then, not respecting a woman was out of the question. Since the Women’s Movement, women have become increasingly self sufficient if not entitled to “do it herself” and we have forgotten that we really (if not secretly) want a man to do special, “non-necessary” things for us, such as opening the door for us or buying us flowers for no reason. Most importantly, it’s all about the details and guess what? We’re not going to tell you to do any of those things because we don’t want to have to do that.
For example, finding out as much as you can about the woman you’re interested in is one of the most important steps to take in order to woo her! If you win her heart, her trust and make her laugh, you’re going to have a great time. Find out her interests, her favorite color, her favorite thing to do, her favorite food. Create a moment that includes one or more of those things, otherwise fellas, it’s going to look like you’re only interested in that one thing.
One of the key things a woman will pick up on is whether your intentions are sincere, or if you’re just in it for another reason. Let’s face it, dating can be hard work, but the right intentions, a little extra effort, time, and creativity will take you very far and get you more dates! Remember, you can always ask a female friend questions about this and she’ll be happy to help you become more romantic!
Love is in the air…

To know what a man’s intentions are when you meet them would be priceless. To know what a man thinks about you after a couple of dates would be helpful. However in reality, asking a man to be that honest upfront is like asking a woman to go upstairs on the first date. Instead, behavior of a man will always tell you the truth:
When you meet
- A man that is attracted to you and interested in dating or a relationship will do his best not to say the typical pick-up lines.
- If a man approaches you with a conversation full of pick-up lines, and is a smooth-talker, be cautious of what he really wants.
Once you start dating
- If he initiates communication with you on a regular basis, he is putting forth effort, and wants to show you he is interested.
- If you are always reaching out to him, and the same effort is not reciprocated, he may not be that into you. Someone genuinely interested in you will make time to communicate, even if it is just five minutes on the way to his meeting.
When you’re out
- If a man does not want to be seen with you in public, he is either not that into you or he has something to hide.
- A man that is interested in you will show you how he can be as a boyfriend
- If a man constantly looks at or talks to other women when you are together, he views you as a friend, and is not that into you
- If he is not interested in knowing you on a personal level, he may not be that into you.
- A man that is interested in you wants to know about your personal life, your background, and eventually your future goals.
Accept what his actions tell you, and try not to embellish what you observe into something you want it to be. If he is not that into you, do not try to force the issue. Continue your search, and find someone that is into you, and has no problem proving it!

Even though winter is cold and gray, there are plenty of fun icy-weather dates to be had during the months of December through February! Instead of putting on those extra five to ten pounds to keep your body warm in the frigid chill, why not meet someone sexy who raises your body temperature without raising your utility bills (and body mass index)? So turn on your computer and go to Zoosk, where 40 million singles are all putting their icy fingertips to the keyboard this season with one solitary purpose: meeting someone to hibernate with during the short days and loooong nights with (wink wink) of winter. Kiss seasonal depression good-bye with a hot winter date. (more…)
Those who are wondering how they can can increase their profile views, receive more messages, and significantly raise their chances of landing a date on Zoosk should maybe consider requesting and publishing friend testimonials on their Date Card! Testimonials are awesome and really speak a lot about you, especially on an online dating site.
What’s a testimonial? A testimonial is a short blurb from a friend or acquaintance that says something positive about you. We publish third party testimonials on Zoosk because testimonials are a great way to give potential matches more information about you from people who know you. It gives someone who looks at your profile the chance to hear something nice about you from a third party. Because this information is coming from a source who knows personally, it gives credibility to the fact that those great things they say about you are true. It’s uncouth to brag openly about yourself, so why not have one of your friends brag about you on your behalf?
If you’re wondering about how the get testimonials for your Date Card, read on for step-by-step instructions! (more…)
