Using XF as a Dating Site

    Hi all, I'm wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me brainstorm on how to possibly set up a forum (within the current community) that serves a dating site. Not a traditional site where people upload photos and are asked their weight, height and what color underwear they like best. Where my thinking is on halt is with the profile set up. The profile needs to be set up so that "regular" members who are just there for general help are not feeling like they have to fill out more than what they really are there for.

    Is there a way to create a separate profile tab or a separate area somehow where those who are interested in dating can fill out more than the regular members?

    Is there a way to create the avatar information for the dating clients so that it shows that they are part of the dating portion but leaves this information out for others?

    Do you by chance know of anything who is using XF for something similar? Maybe another match-making forum of some sorts?

    On some dating sites you can rate members, so here: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/member-ratings.1393/

    On some dating sites you can poke members, so here: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/poke-forum-members.1392/

    On some dating sites you can search by location, so here: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/search-by-custom-field.1398/

    On some dating sites you can't see members listing until you login, so here: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/hide-members-list-from-guests.1528/

    FYI I didn't read the first post, just posting off the title alone.

    Thanks so much DRE! The last one is the most important ones, the first 3 are not relevant to what I want to achieve. Unfortunately the last one doesn't seem to be supported. I would need to have only this "dating group" member list not searchable, all others can be public. Will research it some more.

    I'm looking for something similar for my dutch website but i must be based on xenforo. A great profile page and searching through profiles. Are you had any luck with this @Blueprint4Love ?
