    I am going to start one dating site targeting my country. Which one is the most preferred dating site script? I'll like to have most sophisticated one , but price does matter. :)
    I have searched into DP and found some interesting scripts:

    Negative: nothing so far...

    DZOIC
    http://www.dzoic.com
    Positive: Price: $349
    Negative: Poor design and don't have Affiliate module.

    SkaDate

    Positive: It looks really cool! Alot of cool templates and many quality options.
    Negative: Price: $795

    PG Dating

    Negative: Price: $699 and looks very confuse...

    If you have the money choose between aspnetdating, datingpro and skadate.

    My tip: stay way from Boonex!!

    the old saying..you get what you pay for applies here...
    if you don't have the budget for the more expensive apps, I would try the webscribble one

    i would steer clear of DZOIC and BoonEx both are very cumbersome and will end up costing you more in the long run.

    i have been playing around with PHPizabi (PHPizabi.net) and it's not to bad. Support is fairly non-existant, but it's not to hard to figure out...

    After researching dozens of dating scripts, I still was not satisfied. I was very satisfied after purchasing Abledating, the easy to use administration panel and all the different features, especially the photo ratings & comments. Very easy to organize and maintain.

    Thats the truth. Avoid Abledating or AbleSpace like the plague. ABK-Soft's products are bugy, not open source, the free support they offer comes from barely litterate techs in Russia, as soon as you have a tough problem or complain to much they stop replying to you.

    IMPORTANT!!!!!!!
    They DO NOT honor their 30 day money back guarentee. I know many (including myself) who asked for and were refused a reund.

    DO NOT do business with ABK-Soft, you will be sorry.

    Dont take my word for it, go the the Better Business Bureau for loas Angeles and check the rating of ABK-Soft. They have an F rating.

    I switched to Dolphin 6 after being unable to get ABK-Soft to fix major issues, Dolphin is much much better. It does all I need it to do effectivly. Their are some bugz, but the Expertzzz.com site has lots of great techs that can help you or do work for a reasonable price.

    check out http://boonex.com and http://expertzz.com, very nice scripts. Basic is free. You only need to pay when you want to take of their ads then. Good for a testing period.

    Boonex/dolphin sucks, looks nice from the outside but then they want all kinds of money for widgets and removing their ads. I was thinking of buying ablespace til I read the posts here, guess I'll go somewhere else.

    thanks, Arnie.

    infernal: you'll be out of luck (like me, and the rest of the community). There is no other solution as of yet :(

    I think they found out that they have to change their attitude over at boonex and expertzzz.
    Not a very friendly community, but their programs/scripts are one of the most promising. I have installed the scripts, not tested extensively though but it works so far, - great.

    Hi I can suggest a couple of dating CMS': webmaster.dating.lt(completely free but have to share revenue with the hosting company) and datingsitebuilder.com($50 a month but has more expensive plans as well) - we have a site with them: http://www.gofishdating.com
    good luck
