    Hey BHW,

    Here is something that I have worked with for a bit but don't have much experience in it. Maybe someone can take this and run with it... It includes an affiliate program that you can set up for others to promote your site.

    Check out

    World Dating Partners
    Check it out


    Hope that helps...

    Thanks for the info

    There are quite a few of these out there now. I have tried a few white label dating providers.

    WDP
    White label dating
    Bonefish.com
    DIY-Dating.com

    I have had the most success so far with DIY-Dating.com as they have the best editing tools.

    All systems are similar but the DIY Interface is much more accessible giving me full access to site HTML style sheets etc.

    Now looking for some good site promotion tips on here which I am sure I will find :)

    I have two dating sites. So far I have spent lots of money and not made any. Many hours of work promoting them with articles and much more. I would never do them again and have now begun to focus in another niche. If you are playing with an affiliate site it is a very difficult market.

    I would like to hear how others are succeeding with theirs.

    I am payed by the profile.

    Mine are
    millionaire dating-club.com
    equestrian dating club.com

    a few years ago i did a lot of research on dating sites scripts and for me found that phpmatchmaker had everything that i needed, i set the site up and got it listed first page yahoo, msn, and google for a specific niche dating... it makes reasonable money so not complaining...

    what i do know is its outdated... and think that it will make much more if update it... and then upscale it...

    but im not messing around with any paid third party white label scripts im just going to customize joomla to suite my needs, there are enough plugins for it to be able to function as a dating site and to be able to get it going with minimal cost

    as for promotion my advice would be to target a niche group of people as opposed to going for the already saturated broad dating scene...
