If you have a knack for it and are willing to work hard you can come up to speed with PHP fairly quickly. There are numerous templates and classes availible that make even something as complex as a dating site bearable.
For now, I would suggest patching problems on the current site and evaluating what you want to do.
Some considerations. Hosting on LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL and PHP) is going to give you more power, fewer security problems, and better performance. The user base of support cannot be beaten. There are so many good PHP programers out there that you can almost always find help with a problem in a very short time. MySQL runs some of the busiest websites in the world including Slashdot which is also hosted on Linux using Apache. The term to be slashdotted is a term to mean swamped by sudden traffic and that is a testiment to the huge amount of traffic that LAMP can handle.
Most importantly is it’s free. So that makes your endeavor more profitable. So I strong recomend moving to LAMP if you are not using it. However build it and test it BEFORE you move. You want to preserve continuety, especially with a site like a dating site.
There are many ways a dating site will fail or suceed. Primarily you want to get people talking to people. The more this happens the better your service will be viewed. You also want to able create filters to prevent people from wasting too much time with people they KNOW they don’t want to meet. Weight being a huge one. Smoking, drinking, religion, ethnicity, height and age are big filters that you should support. If a person hates smoking so much that they will not date a smoker, why even have them show up in smoker’s searchs? Contact from smokers are unwelcome contact for these people. So you want to set things up where they do not normally contact each other but have the capability to do so if they are a friend of a friend kind of thing.
Then you have powerfull things that you can create to encourage meeting. Remember your site will be judged on the quanity and quality of the people that it’s members meet. If there are too few contacts people lose interest. If the people who they are meeting are completely wrong they will try somewhere else. I have quite a few ideas on this topic and would be happy to explain in detail.
As for taking over being webmaster, that is probably a bad idea initially. You can find free or inexpensive help. You can learn from them, but marketing is probably going to eat up all your time. Depending on your server costs this can be a substantial figure and you don’t want it eating up your financial resources. There are some ways to market for dirt cheap. They are time consuming however. Something that if you really want this to succeed you need to. Put the effort in and stick with it for a time and you can easily climb to the top of the hill. So many dating sites today are fly by nights or so wrapped up in past success that they throttle thier own future success. I am talking from experience. I met my ex-fiance on a dating site. One that I cannot even log into anymore because it doesn’t support my browser/OS. I was a paid member there for six months about 5 years ago. Most of the other sites I tried around that time no longer exist.
Please do contact me. I think I can be of help with this endeavor in many ways.

5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!
In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.
A business Model gives a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.
Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.
Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.
The more the Business Model Analysis a person does, the more exposed he gets to real life corporate situations.
Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.
Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).
Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.
