Project Description

Im looking for dating/social networking software with features similar to [url removed, login to view] , [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], etc. Let me know why your custom solution is better than getting a premade script.

I want the coding to be efficient and streamlined and secure. I want it to be scalable to handle 10,000-1,000,000 if the need arises.
