VIDA Select (by Scott Valdez)

Scott Valdez

Scott Valdez’s matchmaking team isn’t limited to a small internal rolodex. They dive right into Pittsburgh’s largest pool of eligible singles! That means you can look forward to dates with matches who meet all your relationship “must haves.” 

Thanks to a powerful combination of tech and intuition, VIDA Select has modern matchmaking down to a science.

Clientele

VIDA Select works with accomplished, relationship-minded singles, generally in their late 20s to 60s.

Cost & Contract

Matchmaking services don’t require a long-term contract. All of VIDA Select’s packages are paid monthly.

Clients can choose from 3 levels of service: Basic, Premium and Elite. Basic packages start at $1195 per month. Premium packages begin at only $1795 per month, and Elite options start at just $2595 per month.

The cost of each matchmaking package highly aligns with the number of hours that should be spent on your search during the month. On average, clients meet someone special in just 90 days of service.

What To Expect

VIDA Select’s matchmaking process starts with a quick online screening, as not every Pittsburgh single qualifies for the service.

The next step is an initial consultation, which is free. You’ll learn all about how the service works, share your dating goals and more. 

Once you’ve chosen the service level that fits you best, you’ll meet your dedicated personal matchmaker! During this 90-minute interview, she’ll learn all about you, your lifestyle, and your ideal partner criteria.

Then, the VIDA Select team gets to work! No disappointing blind dates with Pittsburgh singles who don’t meet any of your benchmarks, because you’ll have the opportunity to review potential match profiles and approve each one.

Your matchmaker is with you throughout every step of the process. And VIDA Select offers additional services like dating coaching and personal styling, so you’ll walk into every date with confidence.

The Modern Matchmaker (by Susan Dunhoff)

Susan Dunhoff, Pittsburgh matchmaker

Located in Squirrel Hill, professional matchmaker Susan Dunhoff helps singles in the Greater Pittsburgh area. She has a background in marketing & communications, but has been matchmaking for over 30 years. 

As Dunhoff explained in an interview with P100, she was having trouble finding relationship worthy singles to date while running her marketing firm. 

Realizing there were other busy professionals in her same situation, she began matchmaking “on the side” for around 8 years before launching The Modern Matchmaker.

Clientele

Most of Dunhoff’s clients are between 35 & 75. She describes them as selective professionals who value their confidentiality. 

Cost & Contract

Matchmaking contracts last for 12 months. Dunhoff offers a guaranteed number of matches, which is specified in your contract.

Matchmaking services come at three levels, starting with database access to selected matches. At the higher package levels, Dunhoff will scout outside her internal database of around 1,000 singles

She doesn’t disclose her pricing online, but based on media articles her services start around several thousand dollars.

What To Expect

Singles interested in learning more about this Pittsburgh matchmaker start with an in person or video consultation. You’ll also submit a profile form, which you and Dunhoff will go over during the call.

This information helps her “get on the same wavelength” about what’s important to you in a relationship.

She’ll also go over the membership options, all of which involve a year-long contract. At the lowest level of service, you’ll have the ability to review profiles of selected matches in her internal database. 

If you opt for one of the more expensive memberships, Dunhoff will scout for singles outside of her rolodex as well.

When both you and your prospective match are interested in meeting, she will schedule a date. Afterwards, she welcomes feedback about how the date went, match quality, etc. so that she can adjust her search as needed.
