Let's dive in with...

How Alessandra Conti Got Her Start

Alessandra Conti

Conti says she has always called herself a “sandbox matchmaker,” thanks to her penchant for setting up her friends even from a young age.

In high school, she and her sister Cristina Conti Pineda would rent out venues and “invite all of the cute boys from neighboring high schools and all of our fabulous girlfriends.”  

According to Conti, the two often talked about how much fun starting a matchmaking company would be, but both pursued higher education first.

Conti studied broadcast journalism at American University, then interned at a lifestyle magazine published by Fox News. Her sister went to Oxford, and interned at an event planning company. 

Then, as Conti explained in an interview, it was time to turn their “day dreams into reality.”

Conti and Pineda moved to Los Angeles, setting up shop in Beverly Hills and co-founding Matchmakers In The City in 2012.

Conti was the driving force behind her sister’s marriage, introducing her to her now-husband in 2017. She has also carved out a name for herself as a celebrity matchmaker

She took on millionaire matchmaker Patti Stanger as a client in 2016, and was the matchmaker behind-the-scenes for Seasons 7 & 8 of MTV’s “Are You The One.” 
Conti was also the matchmaker on Vivica A. Fox’s “Face The Truth,” which aired on CBS for 1 season.

Alessandra Conti’s Dating Advice

A frequent media contributor, Conti has contributed relationship and dating advice to media outlets like Elite Daily, Bustle, Bravo and Fox News.

In an interview with Uproxx, she warns singles to have realistic expectations when swiping on dating apps. In her opinion, one of the biggest downfalls with dating apps is the illusion of choice - and “no one looks like their photos because of Facetune and filters.”

Instead of swiping, she advises men to approach women in real life. As she put it in the interview, 

… Get over your approach anxiety. It takes twenty seconds of insane courage, twenty seconds of embarrassing bravery, and I promise you something great will come from it.

Of course, that only works if you do it the ‘right’ way. And Alessandra Conti has a 4-step approach to getting a woman's number that she shared with Uproxx:

Conti also advises singles to maintain perspective when it comes to social media, especially when it comes to setting your expectations. 

In an interview with Awakened Woman, she warns singles to remember that people often don’t look the same on social media as they do in real life - and that highlights and reels can be very misleading.

People are watching the perfect boyfriend, family, husband, and kids, then you look at their lives and everything looks wrong.

She advises being realistic about what you see on social media and remembering there’s no perfect person or relationship.

In an interview with DatingNews.com, Cristina Conti Pineda explained why they often recommend that their clients do a social media cleanse:

It takes time to unwind from physical perfection because singles see it everywhere. We like our clients to go through social media cleanses because it can be problematic, especially for men. It can make them antisocial and unable to have a real relationship.

How Alessandra Conti Approaches Matchmaking

And when it comes to finding the perfect relationship for her clients, she tries to ensure her matches understand each other, resolve conflicts in a similar way, and are generally on the same page about life’s most important issues.

But as a boutique matchmaker working with a limited number of clients at a time, she also places high importance on learning about her clients' communication styles.

As she explained in an interview,

Of course, the main deal breakers of being on the same page with wanting marriage, wanting children, and being compatible religiously are all essentials to have, but we also know that it takes a lot more than just the basic compatibility for a match to really connect.

Conti says a fundamental aspect of their service is recognizing that “looks are not the most important part of a relationship.” 

Instead, Conti and her team encourage clients to choose 5 “inner” qualities that are must-haves for a future spouse.

Depending on your membership level, you’ll be meeting matches sourced from Conti’s database or that her team has scouted at events around the city you’re dating in.

When a compatible match is found, all of the date details are handled for you. As Conti’s sister explained in a press release

Our clients are busy people, so we take care of selecting the location, and we cross reference the couple’s schedules, so they don’t have to go back and forth with each other.

After each date, you discuss how it went with your matchmaker. Paying clients also receive private date coaching post-date to troubleshoot anything that needs tweaking.

How Much It Costs To Hire Alessandra Conti As Your Personal Matchmaker

Conti specializes in matchmaking for Beverly Hills singles, but also works with singles in San Francisco, DC, and New York City.

Clients have two options:

  1. The “Basic” membership
  2. The “Priority” membership

The Basic Bachelorette/Bachelor option costs a one-time fee of $100, but comes with no proactive matching. It’s just having your profile included in their database of singles for one year. 

Conti’s team only reaches out in the event you happen to fall within a paying client’s criteria. 

The Priority memberships start at $10,000 for a local search, and National priority memberships start at $25,000. 

The total package price depends on the length of your contract, how many locations you’d like to date in, how many matches you’d like, and other factors.

Memberships typically last for 6 or 12 months.

Matchmakers In The City also offers Dating Coaching, with packages starting at $4,900. Conti also offers a la carte dating coaching sessions that typically cost $200 per hour.

Alessandra Conti Reviews

While Alessandra Conti has been a frequent media contributor, there aren’t many reviews of her or Matchmakers In The City on local review platforms. 

On Google, Matchmakers In The City has a 4.8 star rating based on 30+ reviews. The majority were positive, like this one from fellow matchmaker Darci Roberts:

This reviewer identified herself as a Christian, and seemed encouraged that other Christian singles used the service was well:

And this reviewer attributed her positive experience to the Conti sisters:

Matchmakers In The City hasn’t been reviewed on Yelp or Trustpilot yet, nor is it listed with the Better Business Bureau. But you can read more about Conti’s service in our Matchmakers In The City review!

It’s not terribly surprising Conti doesn’t have more reviews of her service on local platforms, given her more high-profile Beverly Hills clientele are likely privacy-minded. 

But with plenty of Los Angeles matchmakers to choose from, surviving the competition means her process must be working for her.

But is she the right matchmaker for you? Hiring a dating service is a big decision - you’re not only investing money, you’re hoping for a life-changing outcome. 

One aspect to consider when hiring any personal matchmaker is how far their reach extends. Do you want to roll the proverbial dice and hope that your soulmate signed up with the same service? 

Maybe you’d also like to consider a matchmaker service with a nearly unlimited reach, like VIDA Select.
