GASP!!!! You mean people post fake profiles and pictures, and lie on dating sites????
Unfortunately it is very common occurrance, fake profiles using pictures of models and actors are used to entice unsuspecting people. In the news recently there have been several items where people have been scammed out of money, and set up for crimes. The person in your case did the proper thing and notified the site and had the profile deleted. The only party who may have some recourse is the party whose picture was used. They would have a potential argument for identity theft.
The best advise is be very careful online. You never really know who you are talking to.

Without sustaining damages, a lawsuit would be fruitless. Best bet is to stay away from online dating, and meet people the old fashion way.
Doesn't appear, based of the facts presented, that your damages warrant bringing a claim.
