Word Press by default creates a profile for every user. But you’ll need to add custom profiles, to allow members to add additional information.
For example, by default the name, email id, username are a part of the Word Press user profile.
“1 out of 5 relationships start online”It’s written in bold letters when you visit The point to be noted is not as much about the tagline, as it is about the statistics. An additional feature you’d have to add is paid membership.
The fact ‘1 out of 5 relationships begin online’ can be leveraged by others to create similar online dating services. Do you know what happens when a dating website turns 20? With paid membership you can charge users a fee for additional services. To give you a fair view of the features which would be a part of a dating website, I have created a list.
Dating websites are primarily membership based social networking websites. You have the same elements- user profiles, private messaging, likes, advanced search, and the like.
All you have to do now, is use their experience as inputs for your dating website on Word Press. A dating website could be compared to Facebook (a social networking website).
They’ve mastered a lot over the years and have added features based on research and user feedback.
There is a lot you can learn from websites like or e Harmony.
Well, all of that- but most importantly it becomes mature.
So, a similar website on Word Press would have to be a combination of two major plugins- a social networking plugin and a membership plugin. This list contains a breakdown of elements on a dating website and the Word Press plugins you’d need to provide each feature. To monetize your dating website, you’ll need a Word Press membership plugin.
A membership plugin restricts access to content based on a membership level. A site-wide membership restricts the entire site’s content to unsubscribed members.
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.
