Developing a new social/dating site wanted to get an idea of what kind of money we are looking at to get it off the ground and moving?? I know it is going to continually take work but I am not a developer so I would very much appreciate some feedback. I was thinking of using a standard template to build off of, would that be a good move? Simply for cost reasons and then have my developer (who has yet to be determined) customize everything from there. I am assuming there is going to be a lot of code written since there is going to be a lot of bells and whistles on the site.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!
