I am looking to create an aesthetically pleasing website that will allow users to post a profile within a particular category and then fill in a profile (most likely based on drop down menus) along with giving users the ability to upload user-generated video clips that are viewed in conjunction with the user's profile. I also want users to be able to search the database for keywords and do advanced searches that search within the dropdown menus above and then view a list of the resulting profiles.
While this example has nothing to do with my actual project, think of this as a dating site where each person can register based on a subscription and submit a profile based on drop down menus (ie, blond/brunette/redhead, thin/medium/fat, etc. (along with a paragraph about themselves) and then upload video clips as long as they are a subscriber. A user could then search for a "blonde, thin, female who likes sports" and pull up a list of prospects.
One clarification is that the drop down menus will be different depending on what category a person is in. ie, there might be a different set of drop down menus for someone who says they are "indian" or "african" or "jewish".
To clarify - this is just an example of what I need...I AM NOT DOING A DATING WEBSITE.
