How Much Does Tawkify Cost? (2024 Prices!)

Tawkify website

Finding out how much Tawkify costs can be difficult, since most matchmaking services don’t list their pricing online. Everything you need to know about Tawkify, from price to what you can expect, is right here.

Our team has reviewed over 200 matchmaking services, delving deep into their costs, operations, success rates, and client experiences. Our reviews are built on extensive research and a keen understanding of the landscape that comes from over 14 years of first-hand experience in the industry.

Let's get started!

Tawkify Locations

Tawkify is a national matchmaking service originally founded by E Jean Carroll in 2012. It is headquartered in San Francisco, but they work with singles in every state.

Tawkify Price

Tawkify packages range from around $4,000 to $70,000+, with the package cost largely determined by how many matches you want and what level of service you’d like. For instance, the least expensive package includes 3 matches.

To help put that in perspective, let's take a look at what a few other matchmaking services with a national reach charge.

Enamour, for instance, caters to a discerning clientele who want to meet thoroughly vetted matches hand-selected for their high degree of compatibility. Packages start around $20,000 for a 6-month contract.

VIDA Select takes a different approach to pricing, with pay-as-you-go monthly packages in lieu of multi-month contracts. Basic matchmaking packages start at just $1195 per month, with Premium packages beginning at $1795 per month. Elite service starts at $2595 per month.

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

Selective Search is another elite matchmaking service with a presence in many major cities around the US.

Founded by Barbie Adler, Selective Search package cost typically ranges from $50,000 to $250,000+ for most clients. There is an "introductory" package for around $25,000, but it has membership criteria that won't fit every client's situation.

Three Day Rule, founded by Talia Goldstein, has offices in 12 cities around the US. Three Day Rule cost starts with the 3-month package for $5,900 that includes a guaranteed minimum of 3 matches. Their most expensive membership level starts at $19,500 for "VIP" packages.

What Else You Should Know About Tawkify

While the only way you’re getting any guaranteed matches is to become a “Matchmaker Client,” you could join Tawkify as a “Matchable Member” for just $99 a year.

Matchmaker Members are listed in the database of potential matches for Matchmaker Clients.

It's possible to get multiple dates as a Matchable Member, but it almost goes without saying that the Client’s best interests could be given a lot more weight than yours.

After all, the Matchmaker Client is paying a lot more than you.

That’s why if you’re looking to hire a matchmaking service, your experience will likely be better working directly with a Tawkify matchmaker rather than signing up as a Matchable Member. But at least now you know more about the database your dates will be coming from as a Client...

According to Tawkify, there are approximately 1.5 million singles in the company’s nationwide database. If this figure is accurate, that’s actually a pretty sizable dating pool for a traditional matchmaking company.

As a Matchmaker Client, you’re not just limited to dates with Matchable Members.

There’s a chance you could also meet another Tawkify Client. The search can also be expanded to include non-members when no suitable candidates are available in the database. According to some Tawkify reviews, non-member matches are sometimes recruited from more casual dating apps like Tinder.

What You Can Expect From This Dating Service

Each client is paired with one of Tawkify's professional matchmakers. The matchmaker will work closely with you to understand your dating life, and get an idea of what you’re looking for in terms of a potential partner in a long-term relationship.

Once your matchmaker has developed an idea of who you are and what you’re looking for, she’ll start the initial search in Tawkify’s “Romance Rolodex” of member profiles.

This first search looks for what Tawkify calls “paper compatibility.” A potential match is made based on common values, interests, and other traits and characteristics that can be quantified in a dating profile.

She will, of course, also be looking at photos she has of your potential matches. She’ll have a pretty decent idea of what you’re attracted to because by this time, you will have already sent her photos of any exes and celebrities you think are hot.


Next, potential matches are screened via video chat by your personal matchmaker. If she decides a match is a good potential candidate based on the video screening, then a date is set up.

Expect to be going in pretty blind because Tawkify doesn’t share any photos of your matches with you before you meet them.

Each blind date is planned according to mutual interests. So if you’re both into history, for example, a trip to a museum might be in store for you.

After your date, the matchmaker will check in with both you and your match to get feedback. Whether it was a lack of physical attraction, compatibility or chemistry, any feedback you can offer helps her to adjust her search for a good match.

The Sign Up Process

The first step to becoming a Tawkify Client is a 10-15 minute evaluation where you’re asked specific questions about what you’re looking for in a partner, i.e. age range, ethnicity, education level, etc. You'll also answer some basic background questions about yourself and your relationship goals.

All the notes from that evaluation are attached to your initial profile. Then it gets forwarded to the selection committee for final approval.

While the selection committee is deliberating, clients are required to pay for a package.

This “holds” your spot while your profile is being evaluated. The final approval process takes 1-2 days. If for some reason the committee decides Tawkify doesn’t have the resources in your area to find you quality matches, your payment is refunded.

Tawkify Pros & Cons

The service is nationwide, and has a substantial database, so that's a Tawkify pro.

A potential downside is you’re truly going on blind dates. You probably get a verbal description of your match beforehand, but “blonde hair, green eyes, athletic figure” still leaves a lot to the imagination.

Do you love the thrill of meeting up with someone you know next to nothing about? You’ll probably like Tawkify.

However, if you want to be a bit more selective about the people you choose to spend your time with, then consider looking into other matchmaking services that give you a little more control over who you meet.

Sometimes matchmaking companies have a “no photo” policy because they don’t have a lot of suitable matches for you.

Having you rule them out before a date would make it difficult to fulfill the quota. But who wants to arrive to the restaurant and discover your match wouldn’t even warrant a second look if you passed them on the street?

Many people prefer to see photos and meet the people they feel physically attracted to. That’s why there are plenty of alternatives to Tawkify out there who share photos and more detailed information about potential matches up front.
