for about a year, I;ve been running a site on dating and confidence for men. I was using a reprogrammed wordpress environment (multi-user) provided by some seminar organizers. The advantage was that there was almost no desiger work and very little technical issues. The problem is that it's not flexible at all. Now I'd like to ask your opinion:
1. do you think the sites design really affects whether people get interested or not (and we assume that the overall design is quite professionally looking)?
2. What do you think about the design of my site masculinefreedom . com and does it grab enough of your attention if you were interested in dating advice for men?
The reason I'm asking is that I'm thinking about switching environments, so that I can fully determine my own design (as opposed to using a predefined theme). But it's a LOT of work and might affect my SEO.
