Janis & Carly Spindel, Serious Matchmaking

Carly Spindel & Janis Spindel, matchmakers

So named because this mother/daughter duo only works with commitment-minded men, Serious Matchmaking is based in NYC. But the Spindel’s reach is international, and they have a presence in Florida.


Serious Matchmaking clients are typically affluent men. As Spindel explains in an interview, “I’m a professional matchmaker for C-suite execs, Wall Street bankers, and politicians.”

Cost & Contract

Membership contracts for men generally span 12 months, during which time you’ll receive at least 12 introductions. 

For men, Serious Matchmaking costs anywhere from $25,000 to $1,000,000 depending on what level of service you purchase and what fees are incurred during the search. There is a signing fee for new clients, which starts at $65,000. 

There is also a “finder’s fee” due if you are with a match for 12 months, begin living together, or get engaged. The finder’s fee is the same as your signing fee.

For women, there’s a $25 application fee to begin with. After filling out the form, there is a screening fee that runs anywhere from $250 to over $1,000. The amount is based on what type of interview you have. 

If you pass the interview, you’ll be placed in the Spindel’s database and potentially matched with paying clients. This is a “passive” route to matchmaking, however, as you might never meet any men that way.

What To Expect

For paying clients, the first step is a consultation with the Spindel’s matchmaking team. This is often over a meal, as they like to get an idea of how you present yourself, your personality, etc. 

Contract particulars like which level of service they recommend are discussed. The cost of the service is paid for upfront, and once that’s taken care of your search begins. You’ll be meeting Florida singles from their internal database, or that they’ve identified in the area by scouting. 

Depending on your service level, you can meet women outside of Florida as well.

Scott Valdez, VIDA Select

Scott Valdez

Thanks to its modern approach to matchmaking, VIDA Select’s team has direct access to the largest pool of Clearwater singles you’ll find anywhere! 

Like Serious Matchmaking, VIDA Select has an international reach. That means if you only spend part of your time in Clearwater, you can expand your search to include any city you’d like to date in.


VIDA Select works with successful professionals of all ages, from their 20s to 60s+. 

Cost & Contract

VIDA Select is different from most other matchmaking services in that you won’t need to commit to a long-term contract. 

Instead, VIDA Select offers monthly packages, so you can stop and restart your service as needed. That means you won’t risk paying up front for multiple months of search time you don’t end up needing if you meet someone special right away.

Monthly package prices highly align with the number of hours that should be devoted to your search. There are 3 levels of service to choose from.

Basic packages start at $995 per month. Premium matchmaking packages begin at just $1595 per month, and Elite packages start at $2395 per month.

On average, clients meet someone special within 3 months of beginning service.

What To Expect

The matchmaking process starts with a quick screening, after which you’ll be invited to set up a free consultation. During this call, you’ll find out how the service works and decide which level is best given your dating goals and match criteria.

Your matchmaker will then select highly compatible Clearwater singles based on your matching criteria. After reviewing a full profile, including photos, you can approve or pass on each one.

VIDA Select offers a full range of complementary services, including dating coaching and personal styling - everything you need to make a great first impression!
