Welcome to BuddyDev.
Creating a dating site needs a lot of time and thinking. I will only address your specific question in this reply.
If you want to hide/restrict users based on gender, my suggestion will be to create member types for gender.
BuddyPress allows filtering users list with member type very easily(though needs code).
I would assume your plugin addressed this situation. I am afraid to change codes in case of any updates.
I already created genders.
But when people login (male/female) they are seeing both genders.
What is the code I need to add ? my genders are male/female currently.
i saw a plugin BuddyPress Member Types Pro you are advertising, i thought this plugin would do the job but i don’t want to invest money without making sure thats what i need.
i used female and male. also I am curious about how to stop members from seeing users before they login. I want to do a community front page like Facebook or similiar to entice people to join community to access user profiles.

Thank you for the reply. I am posting code in my next reply(marking that private since I will be including this feature in the plugin itself).
The code allows you to
1. Show users only users from other gender
2. Prevents users from same gender to access each other’s profile(opposite gender can)
3. site admins can see all and access all
It does not filter activity stream or group’s members list.
As for other question, you will most probably need custom development. But if you only wnat to add privacy to site, Please let me know. I have posted some code for that on our blog in past.
I found the following file
and placed your code in this file and it did work on the login page. however this code is not hiding content in the latest members or popular members widgets. so the user can still click on the profile link of the same gender.
