Tutorials for building dating apps

I'm looking for some quality tutorials on how to build a Tinder clone, ideally one that integrates all of the relevant elements (the backend, social APIs, finding peers, chat, etc.).

I've found a few, the issue is that they do ask for a lot of money with seemingly little verification. Any recommendations would be really appreciated.

:)

"Building a self destructing messaging app", in the library here will introduce you to many of the features you are looking for.

The tutorial has been pretty awesome, I'll post back about what it still leaves open but so far I'd like to figure out how to use the Facebook API to pull user info from Facebook instead of using a sign-up. Other than that no holes.
