How to Create a Dating Site - The Profile
(Page 3 of 4 )
The purpose of your site is for users to meet and interact with each other, but they’ve got to find each other first. This is efficiently accomplished through the profile, which often comes in the form of a single Web page which allows users to offer up information on themselves (an example of an American Singles profile can be viewed below). Most Web sites promising profiles offer online forms which can be filled out to create this at-a-glance info.
There are many easy solutions Webmasters can use to create blank Web forms for users to fill out with ease online. Try form-generating programs and services such as http://www.emailmeform.com/, http://phpforms.net/, http://www.freedback.com/ or many other programs you can find easily online.
After shopping through online profiles, users may just find someone who sparks their interest. Now it’s your job to provide easy communication tools so they can reach the next level in their hoped-for relationship. Many dating sites offer on-site tools and messaging options to make communication quick and easy.
With sites like The PHP Resource Index (http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/), pictured above, you can get Web scripts which allow you to add any number of communication features to your pages: instant messaging, chat rooms, classified ads, forums, etc.
