The point to be noted is not as much about the tagline, as it is about the statistics. Do you know what happens when a dating website turns 20? There is a lot you can learn from websites like Match. All you have to do now, is use their experience as inputs for your dating website on WordPress. How to Create a Dating Website on WordPress Dating websites are primarily membership based social networking websites.
A dating website could be compared to Facebook a social networking website. You have the same elements- user profiles, private messaging, likes, advanced search, and the like. With paid membership you can charge users a fee for additional services. So, a similar website on WordPress would have to be a combination of two major plugins- a social networking plugin and a membership plugin. But these two would be the most important. To give you a fair view of the features which would be a part of a dating website, I have created a list.
A membership plugin restricts access to content based on a membership level. You could set-up a free or paid site-wide membership. But a piece of advice here, would be to set u free site-wide membership- to lure in members. And you could then charge members for special services.
Any WordPress membership plugin you choose would provide you tiered membership, but a plugin I would recommend is Paid Membership Pro. WordPress Membership Plugin Review: WordPress by default creates a profile for every user. For example, by default the name, email id, username are a part of the WordPress user profile.
BuddyPress provides a private inbox for each member, using which members can exchange private messages using the username, and avoiding the need of an email id. Once members subscribe for the service, they can text or call each other anonymously, using phone numbers generated by the website. And for that, your dating website needs a solid search functionality. What you need is an advanced search functionality which works with your social networking plugin, or one which uses the extra profile fields to filter members.
Ideally the search plugin should allow members to filter fellow member profiles using tags, or keywords. Optionally there could be specific fields using which a member could filter data, such as location, age group and so on.
Based on the fields you include in your form, and the weights provided, a custom algorithm would need to be built for your dating website. It goes without saying your website would need to be responsive, and a social sign-up and login option could be a great addition too.
