Scalable, responsive and built in accordance with the most modern coding standards, it will not only meet, but exceed your expectations in terms of technical quality and performance.
Also, your clients will be more than thrilled to use a dating site that doesn't freeze or crash as often as most of the online sites they may already be familiar with.
While dating and matchmaking are similar, dating evolved so that people can get to know each other before they get married.
Note that we had a challenge not present for a typical Ska Date installation: migrating ~1100 user accounts (and mail messages) from one unknown system to another. Expect some bugs and frustrations, but hey, you only paid 0!
I had to learn two very different data models and map from one to the other. I would hesitate to use it as a platform for a more fully featured dating site until I’d reviewed the alternatives.
Potential clients will quickly catch on that they can increase their chances at finding the person of their dreams by paying more, and you can literally earn a lot of money making people happy.
Online dating is, of course, extremely popular nowadays, and it stands to reason that lots of people visiting your website will only sign up for a free account, or they will just browse through the site before moving on.
