Best Southwest Matchmaking Services [2024 Top List!]

Finding someone who meets all of your criteria for ‘future spouse’ can be a tall order. And if you're a busy professional who doesn’t have a lot of time for dating, it’s even harder. No surprise you’re wondering who the best Southwest matchmakers are!

Our quick guide to the best matchmakers for singles in places like California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico will help you narrow down your options. We’ve been in the industry since 2009, and have reviewed more than 200 matchmakers and their services. We know firsthand what singles value most!

First, let’s talk about…


Enamour website

Perfect for selective singles who want a tailored approach to matchmaking, Enamour’s team curates an exclusive, “invite-only” database of potential matches.

The team has been in the industry since 2009, and uses a powerful blend of relationship psychology, AI, and old-fashioned intuition to pair you with highly compatible, exceptional singles. 

How It Works

After passing through a quick screening process, each client is paired with a dedicated personal matchmaker. She will get to know all about you and your lifestyle, your preferences, deal breakers, and more - everything needed to help ensure you meet singles with true long-term potential. 

The search starts within Enamour’s extensive database, but the team also extends it way beyond that by leveraging recruiting technology and a network of scouts to identify compatible matches from a variety of sources.

You’ll have the opportunity to review photos and a profile of each match after they go through the compatibility screening process. This includes an in-depth interview that takes place either in person or via video call. 

After approving your matches, dates will be arranged on your behalf. Afterward, your matchmaker will follow up with both of you to gain insights into your dating process and adjust the search parameters as needed.

Pricing for Enamour’s elite matchmaking packages starts at $20,000, with searches tailored to fit each client's specific requirements. 

Additional Services

Clients can add personal styling, professional photography, dating, life, and relationship coaching, image consulting, and more to their matchmaking package.

VIDA Select

VIDA Select matchmaking

Founded in 2009 by Scott Valdez, VIDA’s modern approach to traditional matchmaking leverages the largest source of eligible singles there is. And unlike most services, VIDA doesn’t require a long-term commitment. 

Instead, packages are sold monthly so you can pause and restart your search as needed.

How It Works

Like Enamour, the first step is a quick screening process, followed by a complimentary initial consultation. During this call with a matchmaking advisor, you’ll learn exactly how the service works and share a little bit about yourself and the type of matches you want to meet. 

Packages are offered across three different service levels, with Basic matchmaking service starting at just $1195 per month. Premium options begin at just $1795 per month, and Elite packages start at only $2595 per month.

After helping you choose which package best fits your search requirements, your matchmaker advisor will then pair you with a dedicated matchmaker.

She’ll get to know all about you, your lifestyle, interests, and hobbies, as well as your ideal partner criteria. As your search gets underway, you’ll have the opportunity to accept or decline each potential match after reviewing a full profile with photos.

On average, VIDA clients meet someone special within just 3 months of beginning the service!

Additional Services

VIDA offers an array of additional services, including dating and relationship coaching, personal styling, professional photography, and image consulting.

Joann Cohen Matchmaking

Joann Cohen Phoenix Matchmaker

In 2007, Joann Cohen founded her boutique style matchmaking service to help Arizona singles to find their person. 

A boutique matchmaker, Cohen only handles a roster of around 15 active clients at a time. Many of her clients come from engineering and tech backgrounds, and are often in their 40s+.

How It Works

Men join as paying clients, while women can opt to have their profiles placed in Cohen’s database of Southwest singles for potential matching. There’s no charge for women, but since it’s a passive membership there is no guarantee of ever meeting a paying client.

For men, the process starts off with a 2-hour paid consultation. If you decide to hire Cohen and she agrees to take you on as an active client, the consultation fee can be put toward the cost of your package. 

As a client, you’ll be matched with the singles from her database, and with people she’s scouted online or at local events.

Additional Services

Joann Cohen also offers dating coaching and image consulting.

Sameera Sullivan Matchmakers

Sameera Sullivan Phoenix matchmaker

In 2012, Sameera Sullivan founded her matchmaking service in Portland, Oregon. These days, her service is based in Texas and she helps singles in several regions across the US, including the Southwest. 

How It Works

As a boutique matchmaker, Sullivan and her team work with a limited number of active clients at a time. Sullivan’s clientele is often made up of ‘high net worth’ single men in their 40s and 50s, while women typically join the database for free.

Women also have the option to pay a one time $500 “priority” fee and receive first consideration from Sullivan’s team when they are identifying matches for their clients.

For a 1-year contract (and 6 months of hold time), clients pay between $25,000 and $250,000+. Factors such as the scope of your search, the level of service you desire, and the specificity of your match criteria will impact the final package cost. 

Clients are paired with compatible singles from Sullivan’s national database, and the team also scouts for potential matches locally. 

Additional Services

They offer virtual and in-person coaching programs for both men and women. These services are an extra $6,000 - $25,000, on top of their matchmaking package costs.

Love And Matchmaking

Love And Matchmaking homepage

Married celebrity matchmaking duo Rachel Federoff and Destin Pfaff worked alongside millionaire matchmaker Patti Stanger before founding their own dating agency, Love & Matchmaking, in 2014. 

The dating agency is headquartered in California, but helps singles across the Southwest as well.

How It Works

Joining their “Lovebase” of eligible singles is free, however that comes with no guaranteed matches. You’ll only be contacted if you fit what a paying client might be looking for. 

To become a client, first fill out their “Love Profile” form on their website. Then you will speak with a member of their team to better understand what qualities you are looking for in a match and review their package options. 

While Federoff and Pfaff do not disclose their matchmaking prices on their website, you can learn about their offers during the complimentary consultation. 

If you decide to hire them, you’ll sign a contract and your matchmaker will begin their search in their “Lovebase” of singles. The team may also recruit potential matches via social media, ads, referrals, and scouting if searching beyond the database is included in your package.

Additional Services

The Love & Matchmaking team also offer relationship and dating coaching services.
