Take everything bad you've ever heard about SKA Date and throw it out the window. I own and operate 3 separate SKA Date sites and they are absolutely amazing! Every feature you'll ever need in a dating site and ALWAYS up-to-date with whatever is new and hitting the market.
And before any of my above comments, read this part carefully: SKA DATE customer service is UNBEATABLE!!!! They get back to you in 24 hours or less, address customizations right away (I express a request clearly via e-mail and the typical response I get is, "Check site, done as requested.") Like clock-work.
Send me a private message via this site, if you want to discuss this company in greater length!
I think ready made script may be good option for start website.

I do a have a niche idea that runs along similar lines to a dating web site & was interested in your comments, I cannot imagine that there is any off the shelf software that could be tailored to fit what my idea. I'm looking for advice & someone to build & am looking for.
Appreciate your input and recommendations.

For Example, a dating website for a people of a belief or ethnicity has specific requirements vs. a site that is open to everyone (with more detailed search abilities requirements).
First I would ask, who are you building the website for?
What do you want your users to do besides find a compatible match, in other words what's going to make your dating site different?
Are you going to charge people for access?
SkaDate is the best dating specific software for many reasons (e.g. most mature, out-of-box features, up front cost, etc.), alternatively you could use a community software like JomSocial (Joomla) software to replicate many of the core features of a dating software. From my experience, most of these softwares a) aren't built in a way that will help you be competitive because there are literally thousand other that are doing the same thing.
I'll be brutally honest, this is not a unique idea, you will need to build something that means you need to come up with a dating website concept that isn't already programmed. In other words, custom build it yourself or have someone else build it. Build it and Brand it. You're not just building a dating website, but most likely a dating business.

There's no such "best" dating software, all have it's pros and cons. I have heard some bad reviews for skadate, so I think they have some problem, especially support after sale, unless you pay for premium support. Try datingsoftware.com, they seem to have solid dating software.

If you are looking for best dating software than I think www.datingsoftware.com is the best place for you. Personally I think they are providing best offer than another site. Here you will get dating software with lifetime support and upgrade. You will also find free templates for your site.

In terms of features Chameleon is the best, http://ourloveconnection.com this is one of my websites made on it. Another one is http://www.goodthaigirl.com
Actually I had to switch some of the features OFF because they are so numerous. But it is a great script. I am not from Skadate nor any other competition but I love Chameleon, so I promote it from all my heart. http://chameleon.startsocialnetwork.com
By the way, I also have a website on Emeeting. Nice script, less features, that is all.
