When we set out to start Zoosk in 2007, we had one goal in mind: to improve the romantic lives of people everywhere. We had big expectations, but what followed exceeded our wildest dreams. Though we’re now 5 years older and 100 million users stronger, we feel like we’ve just scratched the surface of what we originally set out to do.
For example, as someone who’s been in a committed relationship for the past few years, I’ve taken a ton of photos — of our anniversary dinners, birthday celebrations, and other special moments. Like everyone else, I sometimes posted those moments on Facebook. But those special moments always got buried among other photos and posts. I needed a special place for my girlfriend and I to post about our relationship and share with each other as well as our real-life friends. Think: a “digital scrapbook” of sorts. We asked around, and this turned out to be a major problem for a lot of people. So we set out to solve it.
Today, we’re excited to announce Couple Profiles, a new feature that allows users who are in a committed relationship to create a scrapbook of their relationship. Are you going on an anniversary dinner date with your husband tonight? Are you and your wife planning a romantic getaway? Take a photo and post it on your couple profile. These moments are timeless. Imagine going back and reviewing your Couple Profile with your significant other, 5, 10, 20 years from now, and being able to easily scroll through and cherish every moment of your romantic journey together.
Integrating people who’re in relationships into Zoosk, fits perfectly with our vision as a romantic social network. Now every user has the ability to create an Individual Profile — as well as a Couple Profile if he/she is in a relationship. As always, only your real-life friends can see your Individual or Couple Profiles (our Personals Application automatically turns off and disappears for you and your partner since you’re lucky enough to have found that special someone already).
We hope you create and share your romantic journey on Zoosk.
Thank you for reading and Happy Zoosking!

Food and clothes are among the necessities of life, though these two in particular seem more necessary to some than to others. Since modern rituals of dating almost universally require singles to (1) dress up and (2) dine out, we figured that singles would have a lot to say about their relationship to food and fashion. Zoosk conducted a survey on the eating and dressing habits of 1,500 single people, posing a variety of important sociological questions like whether men should wear skinny jeans and whether it’s sensible to spend extra for an organic tomato. The results? Fascinating! See below. (more…)
While Zoosk might have queried our Zooskers for their favorite art house films of 2010 or on whether they felt Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom should have won the National Book Award this year, we chose instead to bring up the questions that actually matter, like: “Of these celebrity couples that are still together, who make the oddest odd-couple?”. Why? Because having the freedom to fully indulge in trashy celebrity gossip magazines without shame, not needing to explain oneself for the embarrassing habit one has of following in microscopic detail the lives of B-list reality television ‘stars’ – these are the rights of every single individual!
In honor of those rights, Zoosk surveyed 1,500 singles on a range of questions – e.g. “Of these female celebrities who’ve had run-ins with the law this year, who’s the hottest?” – and, without further ado, we present the following conclusions. (more…)
