that's actually a smart business idea.
create a clearly controversial dating platform, fill it with bots and automated fake accounts so it appears populated (obv 80% of those accounts are believably sexy females), do minimal promotion and marketing, once controversy reaches you, the site will explode in popularity. controversy can also be stirred by you, simply by tipping off social justice warrior subreddits and maybe smaller news blogs and stuff, then watch the outburst snowball, and your traffic blow up.
brb ads everywhere
anyone have any idea how much it would cost to have a site like that developed? lol.

A normal info site is going to be 5-7k. Anything with a database back end is going to be closer to 20k. Add a bit of extra polish and a wishlist of features and you are probably going to be right around 30k

>I'll just pay for ads on this site which excludes minorities. There's no way that would ever backfire.
>Fast-forward 6 months. Backfires. mfw 100 million dollars of lost revenue.
jesus, is it really that expensive? no way it's worth it then. i was thinking worst case scenario it would cost 6-8k.
holy crap that's a ton of money. how do people even afford to start these sites then?
self thought or went to school? how long would it take for me to acquire the skills to create the site on my own? i have ux background, so not starting from absolute zero. but i can definitely not write (even remotely) complex code.
Went to university(computer science) but I was coding simple little shitty things since 12 years old.
Left the university after 4 years because I no longer found it worth my time. I also realized that I want to be an entrepreneur/freelancer not an employee.
If you learn like a maniac and really interested in it I think after roughly 1 year you can reach the level that is necessary to "sell" your services. I mean simpler websites with custom (but not too complicated) modules.
In the beginning it will be shit money of course, but you can get paid to learn, which is always good.
But only do this if you are interested in coding, software etc., otherwise it will be suffering.
Yes, thank you for answering... I saw that answer and deleted my post.. but you are very quick.
I didn't go there.. but Hungary and Czech are next on my list.. beautiful part of the world.
