Congrats to Zoosk couple Ellie and Paul on their beautiful story!

Today’s heartwarming success story is from Ellie, who was a single mother until she met Paul on Zoosk. Now they are raising her daughter together as a family.

My name is Ellie. I met Paul through Zoosk three and a half years ago. I was a single mom to a 9 month old little girl thinking I’d be doing it all alone. On my first date with Paul, we laughed and talked over Ice cream for hours. Our second date was a romantic dinner and from that date onward we were together every evening, taking trips, and being adventurous. He bonded so well with my little girl which alone is a single mother’s dream! He proposed on October 5, 2013 and we plan to be married February 2014! Thank you Zoosk for bringing us together!

Such a sweet story. We wish them all the best!

A Zoosk success story from South Africa: Lizelle and Niki


We get success stories from all over the world. Australia, France, and Denmark are just a few of the places we’ve shared stories from recently. Today’s success story is all the way from South Africa.

I met my fiance on Zoosk. I got a message and logged on to see it was from him. It dawned on me that I had met him before through mutual friends but we’d lost contact with each other. I always thought he was a nice guy and we were both single and stayed in two neighboring towns (Vryheid and Newcastle in South Africa). We met and from there we’ve just been going strong. We’re getting married next year. Thanks Zoosk! —Lizelle from South Africa

Congrats you two! Love truly is the universal language.

Heather and Roland from Maine share their Zoosk success story





We love this heartwarming Zoosk success story from Roland and Heather from Maine!  Congrats to this very unique couple!

“Roland and I met on Zoosk. We are just 3 months away from our 2 year anniversary. We both signed up a day apart. He sent me a long email and I really wanted to read it so I subscribed to Zoosk fully. I wasn’t interested in anyone else’s pick up lines. My profile was direct and to the point. That we just wanted to cut all BS out of the equation. I was looking for my best friend! We both are hard workers. He works so much in his own business and I am a firefighter. He was not looking for a girly-girl and I was looking for someone who understood my busy schedule. After talking for 2 weeks every evening for what seemed like hours, he called me one morning and said he’d be in my town in half an hour and asked if I wanted to meet in person. I was not dressed up at all and extremely tired from working all night the night before but I agreed to meet him for coffee. I remember he was so nervous that when he moved his hands off the table he left sweat imprints! Of course he would tell you I was scared to death also. That was day one of this beautiful journey together. We both adore each other. I couldn’t imagine living without him now. The three of us now live together (Roland, myself and his cat Bob). I have found my best friend!!!”

Congratulations to Mike and Kristy from Ohio on their Zoosk Success Story


Today’s amazing and inspiring Zoosk success story comes to us from Mike and Kristy of Cleveland, Ohio. Mike’s letter describes their love story better than we ever could, so without further ado, here is is from the man himself:

My Friends at Zoosk

I wanted to take a moment and share with you my story and how I met Kristy, the love of my life.

After a very non productive marriage, separation, and ultimate divorce, I decided to try some dating and found that I have swung for the fences, started my trot around the bases, only to find that I struck out swinging. After brushing myself off, I decided that it was time to get back into the game and meet someone. Not being a frequent bar hopper, I knew I needed help. I considered the offers from friends in which the tell you “oh, I have found the right person for you, you will love her”, but I factored in that if that didn’t work, then that friendship could also be lost. I guess that is where the saying “kill two birds with one stone” originated from. Anyways, I knew I needed some help. While toggling through my Facebook feeds, I noticed an ad from Zoosk and decided that I really had nothing to lose. Worst case scenario is I find that I am not ready to date again. I flipped through some profiles and really kind of went by my own guidelines. I went out with a few and at found out there was more to myself than I had thought. At one point, I thought that I would sever myself from online profiles and concentrate more on what I need to be as a person. And then….it happened.

My subscription was going to be up soon so I decided to try one more time. I did the scientific matching and got a hit. Kristy sent me a message saying that we had a lot of similarities and that she enjoyed my profile. As I read more about her, my level of intrigue rose and I found myself reading the same thing over and over again so I could feel as if I already knew her. It wasn’t long after that that our communication started. What started as an errant message from time to time became several text throughout the day, which then became all night instant messaging sessions until the first light of morning. There was something about Kristy that made me want to know more and more. So, it was that time. The time that you strive for in a new meeting of two people. It was the time to meet face to face. And we did…and it was amazing. You can look at a person for the first time and taste utter disdain and regretment due to that instant lack of chemistry. This had the feeling of Fourth of July fireworks off Ellis Island chemistry. Anymore energy in it and NASA would have us under lock and key.

Dating immediately followed and I slowly started my preparation for the other shoe to drop and failure to trick or treat at my door one more time.

Jokes on you, failure.

This one is perfect.

Kristy and I are to wed in two weeks and my excitement to be with her and the future that will escalate from that is at the same as getting that first wink and a message to go with it saying “Hello, I really like what you posted. I was hoping we could chat.”

I want to thank you all at Zoosk for this part of my life which is a gift that is new each and every day. This is what I have been waiting for my whole life, and it was only one click away.

Thank you!!

Please join us in congratulating Mike and Kristy on their heartwarming love story. We’re so happy for you two!
