RE: Starting a dating website
You're asking questions that are far more complicated than any single sentence (or paragraphs) could answer.

It depends on where you live and what exactly you have in mind. My advice is to do quite a bit of research to make sure no one is out there already doing it. Find out who your potential competition is and make sure it's not a waste of your time. You would be essentially creating a complex online community, which in itself is extremely complicated in ways that I can't even begin to write about here.

Here are some resources you might look at regarding building a community:

This article gives a lot of good information and insight from the perspective of a guy who built his own dating site:

As you can see, Mingle2 is still alive (though barely kicking) and he created it in 2007. I'll admit I've tried it in the past, not really my bag.
