Hi Guys and Gals,
1) I'm looking to setup this theme on my Namecheap Hosting account (need to setup the hosting properly) and setup the theme with all the plugins so it fully functions.
2) I want to setup proximity searching/registration like most other dating sites have including zip codes for the US, countries/states etc...
The plugin recommended in the comments was this:
3) Make sure theme is installed properly and looks good on mobile and PC (Responsive)
5) Setup blog (This should be super easy as well)
6) Setup Mailchimp (It's integrated already with the theme1)
7) Google Maps (This is integrated with the theme as well)
8) Payment models (we'll figure out if we want to use it or not)
I'm really easy to work with and this is a fun project. If it takes off and you're really good, there will be lots of potential rewards in the future.
