Most of these themes come packed with a limited, free customer support and lifetime updates. So, without having to invest a fortune, you get to launch your dating business online without hiring web designers and WordPress developers.

The Divi Theme
Divi is one of the most popular WordPress themes in the market. It comes packed with a theme and page builder called Divi Builder that you can use to build almost any type of website. Although, with some major customization, you can create a membership website with it, it is recommended to use this theme for blogs or business that cater to wedding, dating and similar niches.
Features such as shortcodes for visual elements, SEO friendly structure, fast performance and a powerful theme builder that you can use to drag and drop any element you’d want to display on the front-end of the website.
The only downside to using Divi is the fact that you’ll have to pay for the subscription on a yearly basis. If you consider all the features and the quality of customer support, this subscription fee is rightfully justified.
Revolution Pro is a Genesis child theme with a minimal design. You cannot use this theme to design a membership website unless you are willing to do a lot of coding and modifying. I have seen this theme on many membership blogs, dating blogs, and wedding portfolios. So, you can also use this theme to design something like that.
Some features include multiple blog layouts, customizable log layouts, fast performance and more.
Plus, this theme uses Genesis as the parent theme, you can forget about any monthly membership or subscription as you can use any Genesis theme on unlimited number of websites without any license. Although the initial investment is a tad bit high, when you think long-term, Genesis child themes are very value for money offering.

Using a simple WordPress theme also helps you in loading the website in under 3 seconds which means that you will have no issues with Google’s guidelines and your users will not have to wait for the content for a longer time ruining the whole user-experience.
I wouldn’t recommend this theme to be used on anything other than a simple dating blog or a portfolio website. So, if you are looking for a WooCommerce theme, Maker Pro is not for you. On the other hand, if you want to build something unique and impress your clients, Maker Pro is the perfect starter template to start with.

What I love is the blog section.
