If so, how easy is it to set one up ?........i've never set up even a web page, but my wife set up a basic site, so she might help................and before all the moralistic crows start to land.........i'm thinking of it for 2 reasons, 1 i'm skint, and 2 looking at them, most of them are a big con, and it would be nice to set one up, with just one fee for a lifetime membership instead of all this 'join for free' crap then you have to buy credits or whatever.

Yes. My old boss made £30 million when he sold his.

And despite how he might appear, he's actually a very nice bloke. He even came into the office one day and pulled me away from my computer to take me for a spin in his brand new Nissan GT-R, because he'd seen my desktop background and knew I liked them!

I always imagine that setting up a website, like dating, gambling or any of these sites must be a logistical nightmare, but they make money when they're running.

I'd never find love on those sites, I'd add a pic and they'd run a mile, I secured mine in playgroup, safer that way as 3 year olds are less judgemental :D

Those who run them make a fortune, those who use them feel constantly ripped off. I know I have used many and eventually met my girlfriend via one but and this is the bit that cheers me alot, it was a free dating site that makes its money from advertising. Thus if you want to make money from a dating site but dont want to pee folk off go the advertising revenue route :wink:

Has his Caparo T1 caught fire yet? :lol:

I have been single a while now, but I cannot bring myself to use a dating website. I have absolutely nothing against someone who does and admire their efforts to meet someone, but its just not for me. My housemate has used several and has spent a good wedge of her hard earned on them. One even wouldnt let her register as apparently they had no compatible matches on their database!

That photo is a few years old now. I finished working for him in 2010 and he'd just sold it because it scared the absolute crap out of him. He's no doubt added a few cars to his fleet by now. I know of an Audi R8 and Nissan GT-R and I dare say the F430 has made way for a 458 by now. It wouldn't surprise me if he'd gone out and bought something bonkers like a Zonda too :shock:

We kept telling him to buy a Veyron but, as wealthy as he was (is), he couldn't justify dropping a million smackers on one car when he could buy 4-5 supercars instead... It's a hard life! :roll:

Why don't you offer your services as a male escort?

Pimpin' ain't easy, dude - least I thought it wasn't, right up until you segued smoothly from online dating websites, to escort services. Impressive wingspan there!

I'm currently picturing you in a big hat, with a big fecking feather, and a huge purple car with that funky air suspension.

I'm a studmuffin, dont need no dating sites to help me. One look at my beige Y fronts with chocolate brown trim, and the chicks know i'm a man of sophistication, a positive Burt Reynolds in the bedroom department.
