Zooskers are catching the love bug left and right, and we’ve been hearing success stories from our users that are so romantic, they put Jane Austin to shame. A big thank you to all those who submitted stories in July about finding that special someone on Zoosk. Last month, we came across a story that particularly struck a chord with our more blatantly sensitive side, which was submitted from Zooskers ThomasW71 and 777blondie from Washington state. Here’s our featured story.
“I want to take this time to give a very big thank you to you Zoosk. I was — and I stress was — a member on here until recently. You see, I’d been on here for a little while, checking out profiles here and there. Well, after a while, thanks to you, I have met the most wonderful woman on here. I am now living with her, and we are getting along fine. I give kudos to you Zoosk. You have made me a very happy guy! And you made her a very happy woman. I hope you save this success story, because we are both proof that Zoosk really does work for people. I met a lady on here with the handle 777blondie, and things are going so wonderful for me now. A month and a half ago, I was lonely and depressed, now I’m happier than I have been in so long… I can’t remember when I have been this happy. You’re awesome Zoosk, keep up the good work. Happy matchmaking.”
That’s so sweet, guys. Congratulations! It makes our jobs worthwhile when we hear that Zoosk is working to bring people together. Read more about ThomasW71 and 777blondie on the Zoosk community forum. Okay, now, where’s my kleenex. I’m getting verklempt. Talk amongst yourself. We’ll give you a topic: what not to do on a first date if you’re looking for true love.
Alright, my emotions are under control now. Let’s continue with some Zoosk business. Have you met the love of your life (or the love of your week) on Zoosk? Found a fun date, a significant other, or a life partner? Hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org this month. We’ll select one story from August to feature right here on the Zoosk blog. If your love story is selected, we’ll send you a $100 Amazon.com gift card.
