Evolution of Dating Pro Profile Page Design
Not long ago we collected screenshots of how the main pages of Dating Pro sites changed over the years – check out this Facebook album. Today we would like to discuss the evolution of Dating Pro’s personal profile pages.
You will see how a site member’s profile followed the major design trends, and will get a peek into the upcoming overhaul.
The ‘liquid’ layout dating back just 5-6 years may remind us of today’s adaptive websites, however it could only squeeze up to a certain point. After that you were supposed to use the horizontal scrollbar.

Let us know your thoughts.
