Hey everyone. I've made a ton of changes that lots of warrior forum people suggested as I was starting out with my site. I just finished the new look this week. I have an advanced search system being developed now. What do you guys think of it?

        And...never let anybody tell you that your niche is too broad. Find a way to capture a sub niche. Dont lose momentum

          Very Nice... like the concept and the site too!!

          I was working on something similar, but found issues on implementing the large scale spam profiles which seem to crop up now and then.

          More than anything, just the task of having a few steps automated would ideally save a lot of time and money.

          But, overall a great site from my view.

          Are you going to have this for specific countries? Or the world over?

            Hey abdoue, thanks for checking it out. For now im nesting the pacific northwest in. When the revenue and filter system is designed just the way that i want it, then i do plan on expanding the site. I donr want to get too spread out and have users lose interest due to the lack of people in their area. So right now ill be targetting the region that i live in. I use recaptcha and i have lots of custom fields to prevent soammers from getting in.

                Ha you're a ways away. The site is still on a shared server. Im in the process of switching to a VPS or dedixated. Trying to see what is most cost effective for now

                • I'm starting a dating site too. What do you suggest to build it with? I like yours alot. Did you write all of the code or have a developer do it?

    I am using Joomla for my site. There's a few great systems to use. I prefer Joomla though. I just brought a developer in to help me out with some pretty complex components. Good luck with your ventures

        I have seen Buddy Press. It's not what you use whats what you can start a base on and develop on top of it. You won't find a single profile system that will fit all of your needs, so there is a learning curve when running a community. Thanks for your input. Good luck to you.

      I have joined almost all of those sites. I know that those are the top sites. I'm not looking to be the biggest site online dating site although it would be awesome. I'm looking to pin point a demographic in my region and still be able to run a successful community without having my users being hitup from people nationally which they find really annoying. All of those are by far great sites, but then again, wouldn't you want to be apart of a community where it's only local people who will be contacting you? That's why I started Couple Coffee. Small dating sites on average bring in about 5k a month. I haven't monetized my site yet, but I think I can do ok with what i have now.
