Best DMV Matchmaking Services [2024 Top List!]

Looking for the best DMV matchmakers? Whether you’re dating in DC, Maryland, or Virginia, these 5 services are worthy of your short list.

Our team of experts has been matchmaking since 2009, so we know firsthand what singles value most when it comes to hiring a service. And we’ve done the research for you! 

From cost to what to expect, these quick DMV matchmaking service reviews will help you narrow down your options.

Let’s get started with…


Enamour website

If you want to meet exceptional singles in the DMV area, look no further than Enamour. 

The matchmaking team curates an exclusive, “invitation-only” database of eligible singles, and also uses recruiting technology and a network of scouts to identify highly compatible matches for you to meet.


A “white glove” matchmaking service, Enamour caters to selective and accomplished singles. 

Cost & Contract

Packages begin around $20,000 for 6 months of service.

What To Expect

The process starts with a complimentary consultation and screening where you’ll learn more about the service and ensure you’re a good fit.

After coming on board as a client, your matchmaker will connect with you to thoroughly understand your match criteria, lifestyle, goals, etc. Then, she’ll use a proven blend of relationship psychology, AI, and intuition to select and vet your matches. 

Each candidate undergoes a thorough screening process, which includes a compatibility interview that takes place in person or via video call. You’ll have the opportunity to approve or decline each one, after reviewing a full profile with photos.

After each introduction, your matchmaker will gather feedback from both you and your match. This not only helps improve your dating experience but also allows your matchmaker to fine-tune the search and make adjustments where needed.

Enamour offers a range of services to augment the matchmaking process, including professional photography, personal styling, image consulting, and dating coaching.

VIDA Select matchmaking

Whether you’re dating in Virginia, DC, or Maryland, VIDA Select’s modern approach to matchmaking leverages the largest pool of eligible local singles there is! That means you can look forward to meeting high-quality matches who check all your boxes.


VIDA clients are typically single professionals ranging in age from their mid 20s to late 60s.

Cost & Contract

VIDA offers an array of matchmaking packages across three levels of service. Packages are pay-as-you-go, which means there are no long-term contracts.

Basic matchmaking service starts at $1195 per month. Premium packages begin at $1795 per month, and Elite options start at only $2595 per month.

The cost of your package highly aligns with the amount of time your dedicated matchmaker will spend on your search, taking into account factors such as the complexity of matching criteria, number of locations to include, etc. 

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

What To Expect

Potential clients who pass a quick screening process are invited to book a complimentary consultation. This call is an opportunity to learn exactly how the service works, and for you to share a bit about yourself, your relationship goals, and your non-negotiables in a compatible partner.

Your matchmaking advisor will help you decide which matchmaking package is best suited for your search, and you’ll then be paired with a dedicated professional matchmaker who will be with you throughout the process. 

As each compatible match is selected for your approval, you’ll be presented with a profile that includes photos. After each introduction, your matchmaker will gather feedback that she’ll use to tweak your search as needed.

Like Enamour, VIDA also offers additional services designed to enhance your dating experience. These include dating, life, and relationship coaching, image consulting, and personal styling. Everything you need to make a stellar first impression on all of your matches!

Three Day Rule (by Talia Goldstein)

three day rule reviews

Established by Talia Goldstein in 2010, Three Day Rule is headquartered in Los Angeles and has since expanded to include a branch in DC. 


Both men and women can become paying clients, generally ranging in age from 20s to 60s. 

Cost & Contract

Three Day Rule offers membership packages that range from $5,900 to over $19,500.

Joining the national database of eligible singles is complimentary for both men and women, and your profile might be considered a match for paying clients. This is a passive membership, however. If you want guaranteed matches, you’ll need to purchase a package.

Packages start at $5,900 for a minimum of 3 guaranteed introductions over the course of 3 months. Opting for the $9,500 package will give you at least 6 guaranteed introductions within 6 months.

VIP memberships begin at $19,500 for 6 months of tailored matchmaking services. Factors affecting the final package cost include the specificity of your search criteria, personalized recruiting efforts, etc.

What To Expect 

The first step for potential clients is going through an initial consultation. This is where you'll have the opportunity to discuss your relationship goals and the specific criteria you're looking for in a match. 

Additionally, you'll also learn more about the available packages that are offered and how the matchmaking process works. If both parties agree to work together, you'll sign a contract and pay for matchmaking services.

Depending on the specifics of your package, your matches will either come from Three Day Rule’s extensive singles database or they may be people recruited by your matchmaker. 

When a potential match is identified, you'll have the chance to review their photo and bio before deciding whether or not you'd like to meet up in person.

Keep in mind that each match presented to you counts as one of your guaranteed matches, even if you never go on a date. That’s because all your guaranteed matches are thoughtfully and carefully selected to align with your criteria.

When there is mutual interest in meeting, the Three Day Rule team will exchange contact information on your behalf. After each introduction, the team will gather feedback from you so that your search can be fine-tuned as necessary.

Exclusive Matchmaking (by Susan Trombetti)

Exclusive Matchmaking website homepage

Before delving into the world of professional matchmaking in 2011, Susan Trombetti managed a company specializing in financial investigations. Now, she applies those sleuthing skills to her matchmaking company, calling herself a "relationship investigator."

Exclusive Matchmaking is headquartered in Annapolis, but Trombetti and her team work with singles in Washington DC, Baltimore, Boston, and beyond. In addition to personal matchmaking services, she also offers background checks on potential partners. 


Trombetti’s clients are typically successful professionals, usually men. Women can submit an application to be placed as a potential match in the Exclusive Matchmaking singles database. There’s no fee for women, but there’s also no guarantee of ever being matched with a paying client. 

Cost & Contract

The total price you pay varies depending on the specifics of your search and the membership package you choose. Generally, the fees start at around $7,500 and VIP packages can range over $250,000. Your matchmaking contract will outline all the details, specific terms, and final price. 

There is a separate fee for the introductory consultation. If you meet with Trombetti or one of her matchmakers in person, you’re looking at a cost of $550. Remote consultations are priced at $350. 

What To Expect 

With Exclusive Matchmaking, the introductory consultation can be conducted in person, over the phone, or through a video chat, depending on your location and preferences.

During this consultation, you'll have the opportunity to discuss various aspects of your life, including your relationship goals, criteria for an ideal partner, lifestyle, and career. This conversation helps Trombetti and her team assess which coaching and matchmaking services would be the best fit for you.

If you're hoping to work directly with Trombetti, you'll need to choose the VIP option. She only accepts a limited number of VIP clients at any given time.

Select Date Society (by Sandra Myers & Amber Lee)

Select Date Society website homepage

Select Date Society, founded by Amber Lee and Sandra Myers, has been connecting successful professionals since 2020. 

Lee and Myers first met while working at a national dating service in 2009 and several years later decided to launch their own matchmaking service. The company is headquartered in Richmond, but their reach extends throughout the DMV.


Select Date Society works with successful, selective professionals, ranging from their 20s to their 70s.

Cost & Contract

Matchmaking packages range from $50,000 to $300,000+. 

If you opt for the Concierge package, which starts at $50,000, you’ll be meeting matches selected and approved for you by the SDS matchmaking team. 

Clients who purchase a Platinum package can approve their matches, giving them a little more direct say in who they meet. This level also includes a “private search” conducted on your behalf.

There is also an Executive VIP Level package that could range over $300,000, which includes working directly with Myers and Lee.

What To Expect 

Once you've submitted your online inquiry to Select Date Society (SDS), a member of their team will reach out to you to schedule a consultation. During this meeting, they will take the time to understand your dating history, discuss your expectations, and provide an overview of the service.

If both parties agree to move forward, you’ll sign a matchmaking agreement and provide payment for the selected matchmaking package. 

As part of the SDS process, you will also be asked to complete an Enneagram personality test, giving your matchmaker more insight into your character and personality. 

When it comes to finding your potential matches, SDS has various avenues depending on your chosen package level. You may be matched with other clients, singles from their database, or your matchmaker will scout for matches on your behalf.

SDS has a dedicated "Date Concierge" who will arrange the logistics of your first date.

And after each one, you’ll have an "Insight Session" where you can share feedback about your experience.
