Building Dating Platform with Vaadin and Liferay

Hello Community,

I plan to build a dating platform with a social network using Liferay and Vaadin. I am not sure, whether Liferay is the best choice for the open web application and whether it can bring impact comparing to the self development. Our application should support the complete user management, messaging, chating, video chat, questionnaires functionalities. In addition to that there are following non-functional requirements: 
The application should be scalable, performant, secure and stable. Now we have 15k active users, but we plan to scale to 500k active users during next 5 years. 

We have several ways to implement the requirements: 
1. J2EE server side with Angular JS frontend
2. J2EE with Vaadin
3. Liferay with Vaadin

I've read that Liferay is good for Enterprise intranet platforms. Is this also a good choice for internet applications? Can it meet all requirements we have? How complex is it to implement completely new requirements with new data model? What are the advantages of the Liferay EE?

Thank you in advance.
