You are talking about starting a dating site? If so, I believe it could work if you find a niche... definately profitable.

It's very difficult. Competition is fierce. The problem is getting your site off the ground. You need visitors signing up and using the service for free to begin with. If you're promoting the site using adwords then you're going to have a massive amount of initial expendature. Click bids are high, and the chances are that hardly anyone will sign up to a new service anyway when they can just use the bigger ones.

However, if you can get organic traffic from normal search engine listings, then it is possible. But it will take an awful lot of work.

If you have $25,000 spare to spend on advertising, go for it.
