SAN FRANCISCO, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Zoosk, the romantic social network, announced today the launch of its Couple Profiles offering to allow people to create and share their romantic journey. With this new offering, Zoosk is the first social network to offer a dedicated place for couples to create, store and share their relationship milestones and memories on a joint profile with their friends.

Starting today, people who are in a relationship can build a joint profile on the Zoosk platform, giving them a place to store and share memories of romantic moments and relationship milestones like anniversaries, vacations, special events and more. 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.

"Until now, there hasn't been a romantic social network that also offered features tailored toward people in relationships," said Laurie Davis, founder of eFlirt Expert. "When you are in a happy, exciting relationship, you want to capture all of the special memories you experience with your significant other. Zoosk's new Couple Profiles provide  a fresh way for couples to have a joint profile focused on their romantic lives. This innovative approach will be a model for the industry on how to retain users after they pair off into couples."

With Zoosk's new Romantic Moments feature, couples can post photos on their joint profile, creating a keepsake of their romantic journey to share with each other and their friends. Couple Profiles are open to current and new members. The Couple Profiles can be created and accessed from Zoosk.com and via the Zoosk app for iPhone.

"Our mission at Zoosk has been to help people create and share their romantic journey," said Shayan Zadeh, co-founder and co-CEO, Zoosk. "We started by helping singles to find a partner to begin their romantic journey. The next logical step toward our mission is to provide couples with tools for creating and sharing their journey. Our Couple Profiles is the foundation we will build these tools around."

The new Romantic Moments feature is the first of a series of upcoming features Zoosk plans to introduce for Couple Profiles to engage members with the site throughout their romantic journeys. Zooskers in a relationship will soon be able to enjoy additional offerings including comments, sharing, an Android app and anniversary reminders.
