    Need help with improving my site

    I have a site that I recently developed and I can't figure out which color scheme would go to it. Its main topic is dating and it is targeting woman, men and teenagers. The link is http://www.datingtalk.net/. I am looking for something light, but welcoming with a little bit of dark for men and woman and bright to have a it attractice, I just can't find the right combination of colors to use for body, borders and background. Can anyone leave some suggestions for me ? It will be greatly apprciated.

    Daniel

    Why don't you have a look at [ws] Color Scheme Generator 2. Choose you main colour and play with the different options.

    Other colour websites I have bookmarked are:

    Color Blender
    Color Mixers

    You may also want to look at the sitepoint article Colour for Coders and figby.com's Color tools for the design impaired

    And if you're looking for the meanings behind colors - or if you're going to target multiple world cultures - you might want to take a look at:

    http://www.colormatters.com/

    It can make your head swim, but if you've got a color scheme, it might not be bad to then review Color Matters and see if the colors you've picked will send the right message to your target audience.

    Good luck!
