question regarding combining daily deals and dating on wordpress site

Hi,
A client wants to create a daily deals site that combines with the functionality of a dating site? They want the users to be able to match with each other and then take adavantage of a deal from a sponsor for their date. Does a plugin exist for this? Could buddypress along with a daily deals app accomplish this?

    Hey Corn,

    I hope you're well today!

    I think BuddyPress would be a good place to start here as the whole idea seems like a "community based" project and BP is designed help you build community. With x-profile add-on enabled you'll be able to create nice custom user profiles.

    In addition a "BP Profile Search" would allow users to search other users upon various profile fields and profile fields values.

    This two plugins together should help you build a basic dating site.

    For "daily deals" Social Deal Engine plugin could be of help:

    That said, I think this would make a solid foundation but I think you will also want to build a custom theme that would nicely "wrap it all up" and I'm pretty sure that there'd be also quite a fair amount of custom coding job necessary to tie this all together.

    Cheers,
    Adam
