Finding a life partner shouldn’t be this hard.

Are you tired of the dating app fatigue? Is the impersonal marketplace mentality dampening your enthusiasm for meeting someone new? We hear you! That’s why we created ValleyMatch.
Have you heard people tell you it’s a “numbers game”? Well, we believe that type of attitude is one of the many things wrong with today’s dating culture. You’re a person, not a number, and a digital profile of you is not your best foot forward. Let us help put you in front of people who will take the time to get to know you rather than write you off after two seconds of viewing your photo.
Your first conversation with someone should be an engaged one, not filled with small-talk messages spread out across several days or even weeks. We will put you in front of someone so you both can get to know one another. We take the preferences you enter into our system to match you up with someone who is a mutual fit, meaning you match their preferences too!
We always ask both parties how the date went so that we can provide feedback should you want it. No need to spend time wondering why there will or will not be another date.

About the ValleyMatch Team

Meet Rebecca Nguyen, the Founder and CEO of ValleyMatch. After spending over a decade finding a suitable partner through a combination of dating apps, meeting in person and traditional matchmaking, she understands the loneliness and exhaustion that often accompanies this journey. Now happily married, Rebecca's unwavering belief that everyone deserves companionship fuels her passion for matchmaking. She made the brave choice to leave her full-time tech career to become a Certified Matchmaker and launch ValleyMatch in California's Central Valley.
At ValleyMatch, we are dedicated to revolutionizing modern dating culture. Our close-knit team, primarily based in Northern California, boasts a wealth of tech expertise. We harness technology to enhance the human touch in matchmaking, allowing us to maintain affordable prices while providing personalized services.
Our core values are transparency, integrity, and acceptance. We firmly believe that every individual is worthy of a loving partner, recognizing the unique qualities that each person brings to the table rather than prematurely dismissing potential connections over minor imperfections. We encourage genuine exploration and connection-building with an open-mind. ValleyMatch is here to redefine your dating experience, one match at a time.

FAQs

How are you able to be so much cheaper than other matchmaking services?

We use technology to help power our matching, while still leveraging our matchmakers' dating expertise to review your matches. Human hours are the most expensive part of the matchmaking process. We put you in control of who and when you want to be matched, rather than spending our time selling our services. We can pass those savings onto you!

Do I need to be an elite/hetero/fit/etc.?

Absolutely not! We created ValleyMatch because we saw a gap in the market for regular people. We believe everybody deserves to find lasting love and we mean everybody. We want to make putting yourself out there less scary.

Is there a certain number of guaranteed matches?

Unlike other matchmaking services, we do not have a match quota. We find that match quotas incentivize sending you out on dates that might not be as ideal. (Read: they send you on a date with someone who meets your criteria, but you don’t meet theirs.) At ValleyMatch, we aim to find you matches whose preferences also match who you are! The number of matches you qualify for will largely be dependent on how narrow your preferences are and how well your profile matches others’ preferences.

Why wouldn’t I just choose to be a free member?

As a free member, we won’t actively search for someone that matches your preferences. However, if a paying member has agreed to match with you, you’ll get to meet on a date! Being a free member is a great way to dip your toes into the process—upgrade at any time and we'll look for matches specifically for you.
