Start with getting them signed up. How does that work?
How do they build their profile? What goes in it?
What data from their profile is used to match them with others?
What's your matching algorithm for that data?
What data about their matches do you show them?
How do they connect with the matches that interest them?

Whether it's from 1999 or the latest dating app from 2019, those questions apply universally.

And once you have those answers, the architecture of your app and the back-end services to power it should become more apparent.
