Yes, dating sites are profitable in so many ways. POF is a prime example of this factor.

POF was one of the original online dating websites and it took off in popularity. Any website can be profitable but it depends on the traffic, how you monetize the website to determine if it's profitable or not.

Success depends on your hard and smart work along with interest. If dating site comes in your interested topic then you will give 100% effort to make it popular. I think it will be profitable.

I'm sure they're profitable, but it might be hard to get another dating site going because the market is already so saturated with them. Just Google "dating site" and looks how many there are.

If you pursue starting a dating site, you're really going to need to find a way to make it unique to set it apart from the others. Otherwise, why would people use it?

Dating sites can be profitable but you have to build a good amount of members or traffic. I think if your site can provide a good, clean atmosphere, it can go somewhere.

I think that they are absolutely profitable however because the dating market is competitive you have to use your creative thinking faculties to make it work. If you go for the cut of the mill dating site type you won't have a chance but if you try to do something unique like a dating site mixed with a fitness forum then you can make it. It's something weird yet if you pull it of you won't have any competition.

I agree with the above statements that if you can get enough real members then it would be profitable.

I always wondered on how to build the actual user space. I know the larger dating networks have the ability to seed another niche flavor, but starting from scratch with good quality members has got to be a challenge.

It would be very profitable, but you need quite a lot of funds to start with and invest in advertising.

If you have a lot members it will be profitable and it will keep bringing more members, but as a new website... it would be very hard especially if you don't have a ton of cash to throw into the project.

definitely they're but generally due to a large amount of advertising put on such kind of websites. Besides lots of reviewing websites like mywot or similar to that one blames dating sites of ads abuse and gives them poor ratings.
