Social Network/dating system scripts?

    I have a customer that needs to have a social network or a dating system. The main problem is that all the reviews I read are 99% false reviews. The most reviews talk very good about a product, but when I ask for support or try to see where the company is located I see that all the script is a scam.

    Demo works, but there is no support! There are also bugs like in any software but I´m used to compare the support with Xenforo or vBulletin and I see that there are big differences.

    Can anybody suggest me a good script I don´t care to pay 600$, I just want a good solution and a robust script.

    PD: So bad that diaspora doesn´t have installation through a php file like Wordpress o Xenforo :(

    http://www.boonex.com is the only software I'm aware of. Back when I was looking into this sort of thing it had a fair reputation. I'm not sure how it is now, but it doesn't hurt to consider.

    Social Engine is pretty good too and has a paid bridge with xF too. Only down side of SE is it is pretty resource intense but it is basically a almost perfect clone of facebook.

    I read about phpfox and Social Engine. Social engine has many bugs and lack of support while phpfox is better but still in the same range of support

    SE does have a lot more add-ons though and active 3rd party developers for paid mods. Sadly though, most of the useful mods in SE do cost money. One of the really nice 3rd party add-ons besides the forum bridge is the single SSO with OpenID, but it's $149.99. IMO if your doing this for just a few friends or whatever go phpfox, if your looking to build a social network for a country or a niche content you want to go large with I'd go SE.

    I came across this topic as I'm looking for a social network built around photo sharing. I found SocialEngine's Board Theme to be really cool:


    But after all the comments I've read it looks like it might not be the best solution. Any ideas if phpfox or ning or anything else can mimick that sort of display of photos?
