Ask HN: Any books/guide to build a marketplace startup?

I am researching on an idea to build a "find my life partner" app and would love to get some initial idea on what is the best way to execute such a startup.

Kindly suggest text which you found useful for yourself OR perceived as useful for someone looking to build a startup in this domain.

From what I've heard...

- Most dating sites are owned by a single company

- Most dating apps start with a fake user database because building a two-sided matchmaking platform is hard to bootstrap legitimately.

I would start with basic startup literature and ideas (https://startupschool.org).

What makes your dating app different?

Much has been written about dating apps, have you tried diving deep on the troubles they have encountered?
