Top 3 Professional Matchmakers In Orlando [2023 Guide]
Hiring a professional Orlando matchmaking service is an efficient solution if you’re having trouble meeting high-quality singles.
You’ll be meeting people hand-selected for compatibility, but only if you choose the right matchmaker. Start your shortlist with the 3 best matchmakers in Orlando!
Matchmaker: Elisabeth Dabbelt
Service: Elite Introductions & Matchmaking
Elisabeth Dabbelt is the face behind Elite Introductions & Matchmaking, and also operates a handful of other matchmaking websites, including OrlandoSingleProfessional.com and OrlandoMatchmaker.com.
Professional singles and retirees in their mid-20s to mid-70s.
Varies by client
What To Expect
Dabbelt specializes in matching singles in the Orlando and Central Florida area. A traditional Orlando matchmaker, she matches clients with other singles from within her database.
The process starts with an initial consultation where you’ll talk about your relationship goals, and what did (and didn’t work) in your past relationships. She’ll then put together a “program” for you, and you’ll discuss cost and other contract details.
You’ll then be introduced to other singles from within her database. Each pairing requires mutual approval, meaning your potential match must also be interested in meeting you. After each introduction, you’ll have the opportunity to give and receive feedback on how things went.
Dabbelt offers relationship coaching in addition to professional matchmaking services.
Matchmaker: Michelle Valentine
Service: Matchmaking by Michelle Valentine
Michelle Valentine has worn a lot of hats - she’s an author, talk show host and former relationship advice columnist.
She’s also a personal matchmaker who works with Orlando singles to help them find love and relationship success - she’s even in the process of shooting a TV pilot about her “about her international journeys to find matches for her clients.”
Varies by client
Yes - memberships last for 1 year.
What To Expect
Potential clients start with a consultation, where you’ll talk with Valentine or one of her associates about how her elite matchmaking service works - and how much it costs.
If you decide to purchase a year-long membership, you’ll be matched with singles in Valentine’s database, or that she’s scouted online or at events.
As she explained to Orlando Magazine, she’s much like a Realtor: “You give me your list of must-haves, and I get back to you when I have a list of ‘homes’ you would like.”
And when it comes to your ideal partner criteria, she believes in equal matching. In that magazine interview, she described a client who had what she considered unrealistic expectations:
He was adamant he did not want a woman unless her body was a 10, and his body was not a 10. I had to tell him that I do not do trophy-matching.
After each introduction, you can connect with your matchmaker and discuss how the date went. You'll be able to share your feedback on the match, as well as receive any feedback your match had about you.
Matchmaker: Scott Valdez
Service: VIDA Select
VIDA Select’s modern matchmaking service is perfect for Orlando singles who want an elite matchmaker at an affordable price - and without having to commit to a long-term contract.
Clients pay only for each month they’d like to meet incredible people. You can stop and restart anytime - whether you meet someone special, want to travel or simply need a break from dating.
Successful, professional and discerning singles, generally in their 20s to 60s seeking a long-term relationship.
The cost of each matchmaking package is largely determined by how many total hours should be dedicated to finding your perfect match each month, so it's reflective of your 'ideal partner' criteria, search radius, which matchmaker you work with and more.
VIDA Select offers 3 levels of matchmaking service. Basic matchmaking packages start at $995/month, and Premium options begin at $1595/month. Elite packages start at just $2395/month.
On average, it only takes 3 months for clients to meet someone special!
What To Expect
Working with VIDA Select’s team of professional matchmakers to find your ideal partner starts with a complimentary consultation to see if you’re a good fit for the service, and to answer any questions you have.
After passing the screening process, you’ll have an in-depth conversation with your dedicated personal matchmaker to describe your dating history, current relationship goals, and core compatibility factors. Once she’s got a solid idea of your “ideal partner”, she’ll dive into Orlando’s largest source of potential matches.
You’ll get to pre-screen each and every match, so you’ll be meeting people you are confident you’re interested in - and attracted to.
VIDA Select also provides a full spectrum of additional services such as professional photo editing, personal styling and dating coaching - everything you need to present “your best self” both online and in person!
