What our clients are saying about TDR's personal matchmaking

Working with Carla, my Three Day Rule matchmaker, was the best! She spent the time to get a sense for who I was and introduced me to great matches. Her feedback and advice after dates were always spot on. Out of all the matchmakers I worked with, she had the most genuine sense of empathy and professionalism.
Bryan, 33
Callie was great to work with! She was very respectful and worked around my busy work schedule. Callie paid close attention to what I was looking for and has a natural talent for knowing what makes two people connect. On the second date, Callie ended up matching me with someone that could not be more perfect for me. We’ve been together for 4 months, we've moved in together, and are both so happy I joined TDR!
YB, 32
Working with Jaime has been a very enjoyable experience. She did an excellent job of listening to my thoughts and was always willing to give advice and feedback that was extremely helpful. Throughout the whole matchmaking experience, Jaime was able to introduce me to women that were each more amazing than the last. If I had to do it all over again, there is no doubt that I would work with her again.
James, 26
Erika has not only done an unbelievably good job of introducing me to a string of amazing women, but she has also done a great job of listening to my feedback and nudging me to expand my horizons. Overall, it's been a very healthy balance for me, and I'm excited to continue working with her.

Chris & Roni. Married, August 2014
I was trying to move on from a break up that had left me heart broken. From my first meeting with Heather, I knew she was the perfect person to help me find someone special. Heather is very open, honest, and an amazing listener. I think what makes Heather so successful is that she truly cares about her clients and was genuinely interested in finding out who I was as a person and what motivated me. She introduced me to several wonderful women, and I went on many fun and exciting dates around Chicago. I would recommend anyone who is curious about TDR to at least meet with a matchmaker to find out what they are all about!
Randy, 28
TDR ended up matching me up with someone who couldn't be more perfect for me. He exceeded, and continues to exceed, every expectation I have for an amazing partner. Our first date was the best date that I had ever been on, and 6 months later we were engaged. And, exactly 53 weeks after our first date, we got married. Thank you TDR!
Taryn, 36
Talia has a natural talent for knowing how two people connect. She takes setting people up very seriously and made the effort to get to know so much about me – my likes, dislikes and preferences (both physical and personality). Her suggested matches for me were right on! Thank you for helping me get closer to being in the relationship of my dreams!
Aaron, 36
I hadn’t clicked with anyone I met through online dating and, even after years of living in NY, I still didn’t know where all the engaging men were hiding. I met with Robyn, and she seemed to really understand me and what I was looking for. Plus, she would do the awkward introductions necessary for me to meet someone! For my second date, Robyn set me up with Ben. Ben won me over with his cute smile, great energy and positive attitude. We’ve been together 7 months already, and we’re both so thankful that I signed up for TDR.
Mary, 31
Three Day Rule singlehandedly changed my life for the better! I used to be fixed up constantly, but with all the wrong men. Then, thanks to the spot-on instincts of Talia, TDR's founder and matchmaker extraordinaire, I met the man of my dreams and finally went on my LAST first date! We've been married now for over a year, and not a day passes where I don't think about how grateful I am for Talia and TDR. I've never been happier, and still, to this day, can't believe how lucky I was to meet such an incredible man. I now encourage everyone I know who's single and hoping to meet someone special to look into TDR matchmaking ... you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Allie, 39

Allie & Rick. Married, November 2012
Erika has a gift. She wasn't just checking off boxes and answering pre-made questionnaires-- she was actually really focused on getting to know what makes me different, and beyond all the details and demographic requests, she really came to 'get' me as a person. She introduced me to some really remarkable and beautiful people. And there is absolutely no way that I would have met these women on my own or by swiping right on some app. They are the kind of people that you imagine must be out there, but you never meet. Erika could probably do a lot of different things professionally, and she'd be good at them all. But I really think that this is her calling, because she has the rare ability to actually change someone's life profoundly.
Stuart, 43
Three Day Rule's events are great. Rather than being formal, matchmaking functions, they are more laid back and there is no pressure to walk out with a phone number. You can literally go to an event with the sole purpose of having fun with your friends and there is a good chance you will just end up in a conversation with a like-minded member of the opposite sex. That's what happened to me. I met an interesting girl at a TDR event and we are now engaged!
Dan, 35
It was almost a year ago that I came to TDR with a broken heart. They listened to me and figured out that I was dating the wrong guy types for my personality.  They set me up with my soul mate and best friend — and everything else I didn't even know I was looking for.  I am grateful that TDR encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and throw caution to the wind.  Thank you TDR for making me so blissfully happy.
Tracy, 28
I thought the difference between having a matchmaker and doing self-directed dating would be like the difference between recruiting employees yourself and using a professional recruiter.  But after experiencing TDR's matchmaking, I realized it's a much bigger difference because TDR eliminates a lot of stress, anxiety & decision points. The user experience for your personal matchmaking is incredibly delightful. I couldn't be more satisfied with the whole process.
Ron, 47
Thanks to Erika for being a kickass matchmaker. I've learned a great deal about myself and what I put out there to men in the journey. It's been a unique purview for me into myself, really, and I'm glad I worked with TDR. Marco was a complete gentleman and I really enjoyed speaking to him. I think there is definitely compatibility so would be open to another date. He was super and only right to be the last match as he's met my criteria pretty well.
Sheree, 33

Ashley & Harrison. Married, November 2013
After recently getting divorced, I tried the online dating thing...Tinder, Match, okcupid, among others. I found that I wasn't meeting the caliber of women that I wanted to meet or date. After filling out an application for TDR, I met up with TDR matchmaker, Louisa, who worked to set me up on a date with an awesome woman that I am currently dating. Thanks, Louisa, and thanks, TDR!
Mark, 46
I was hesitant about matchmaking, but once I met Erika I knew I was in good hands. She was easy to talk to and really took the time to get to know me and what it is I am looking for. She didn't just throw matches at me, she took the time to make sure my matches were with quality men. I met some great guys that I would not have met otherwise. If you're sick of the online dating world, I would definitely recommend Erika and TDR.
Sandy, 28
At first, it was a little nerve wracking because you're letting someone else go through a database of potential matches - what if they missed or overlooked the perfect match? But, at the same time, it took a lot of pressure off by not having to go out there and meet people at bars or doing the online thing (I've never experienced anything more miserable). I'm currently dating my last match from Jaime. We met 3 months ago and we're beyond happy and excited. I would definitely recommend working with TDR and Jaime.
Jasmine, 35
I had a very good experience with Adelle. I'm busy and it's very easy for me to not think about dating, and it was great to have the feeling that someone else was working on that for me while I could go about my daily life. A lot of the anxiety about dating comes after the date, and I was pleasantly surprised about how helpful Adelle was with that.
Christine, 37
Marly is amazing! I felt very comfortable with her - she was kind and supportive. We worked on dating patterns: what they are, why they are, and how to break them. It's clear that I date the same "type" of guy. This entire process (working with both Trish and Marly) has opened me up to so much and really helped me understand more about myself.
Jillian , 39

Adelle & David. Married, November 2015
My favorite part about Three Day Rule is the openness of its members.  Everyone I've met is very honest and forthright about who they are and what they want.  I think most people dislike the "game-playing" that happens in dating, and I've experienced none of that here.  Also, the people I've been matched with are intelligent, motivated and professional; exactly the types of people and qualities I would look for on my own.
Edward, 37
I am very grateful that I met Talia.  Her matchmaking service is so wonderful and personable.  I originally had a great deal of hesitation about being fixed up through a matchmaking service because I felt there was a stigma attached; however, it has been one of the best experiences!  My FIRST match was with an amazing guy whom I'm still currently dating. I'm extremely happy, and I owe it all to Three Day Rule!
Jenny, 35
Louisa did a terrific job helping me bounce back from my divorce. She was attentive and patient in drawing out what I was looking for in a match and then finding suitable dates. During the process, Louisa provided valuable feedback and dating tips. Like a true friend, Louisa puts her heart and soul into her efforts.
Gary, 60
After a friend's suggestion during a dating slump, I met with the TDR team and told them what I was looking for in a match. After just one meeting, they definitely understood what I wanted and set me up with great guy. We are going on date 5, and I'm really excited for more to come. I am grateful I took my pal's advice so take mine: reach out to the women of 'Three Day Rule' if you are ready to get serious about meeting your match.
Erin, 27
I'm so grateful for the women of Three Day Rule and their ability to successfully put people together. They took the qualities I was looking for, listened to the type of guy I wanted in my life, and like magic, found a perfect match! They pick your brain and dedicate their time to you. I'm madly in love, completely fulfilled and incredibly happy. I highly recommend letting these ladies get to work to find your soul mate!
Jennifer, 31
Talia has an exceptional ability to read people and figure out what they want in relationships. Her open, supportive, judgment-free manner puts you at ease immediately. She sent me many excellent matches that I would have never met on my own.  I attended several TDR events and across the board, the guys were smart, attractive, and successful professionals (which is not easy to find in LA!) Having TDR in my back pocket also took away the pressure of "having to meet someone." Knowing that Talia had my back and was working to find me matches actually helped me enjoy myself when I went out and put me in a better mindset to meet men organically. I'd recommend TRD without hesitation to any of my single friends.
Kiera, 32
After several unsuccessful attempts using other matchmaking services, It was an understatement to say I was not particularly interested in trying another. I spoke with Jaime several times over a 3 week period, including a long session to cover the failures of the past and my concerns moving forward. Jaime was encouraging, had excellent questions, and presented different scenarios so that she could determine a truly exceptional match. I was impressed with the profile of my first date- but still slightly skeptical. While Melanie and I have only been out on two dates (planning our third), I am extremely optimistic. TDR was able to introduce me to wonderful women who is a match intellectually, emotionally and athletically, and is truly beautiful on the inside and out. I see a very bright future!
Matt, 53
I joined TDR in late 2014. I was extremely skeptical of the process and fell more into the idea simply based on the energy, optimism, and positive attitude of my matchmaker, Erika. She was a pleasure to work with and made the process feel more like two friends gabbing, which inherently made me more comfortable! By February of 2015, I met my current boyfriend through TDR and am still very happily and exclusively dating him. The experience itself was eye-opening and helped me out of my comfort zone and on dates I may not have pursued through an online dating profile.
Madeline, 37

Jessica & Jack. Engaged, November 2014
I'm very selective in regards to education and looks, and have a very particular type. I thought the probability of meeting such a person through TDR was low, but I found Carla to be very personable and confident, and decided to give it a try. Working with Carla was great, and over time, we found someone who exceeded expectations and that I am really excited about, and who I would have never otherwise crossed paths with. This could have been the best investment of my life!
Susan, 37
I made the best choice by joining Three Day Rule. I recently got matched, and couldn't have asked for someone more amazing. I trust my matchmaker, Marisa, and my experience has just been amazing so far. I can't wait to see what the future brings.
Paul, 26
My experience with Heather and the TDR team has been nothing short of terrific. From the first interview I had with them, to numerous contacts in presenting dates for me to meet, to their always-professional follow up, I’ve greatly valued my relationship with TDR. Importantly, they worked hard to understand the kind of person I am, and the kind of person I would best match up with. I’m happy to say that a couple of the introductions I’ve had via TDR have led to on-going relationships that I’m still enjoying.
Tom, 62
I’ve gotten a few messages from other matchmakers recently (though I’ve unsubscribed from them now), and I have to say your profile descriptions, profile building, and your whole process was so much better. Everything about my TDR experience with Louisa seemed so much more personal and genuine, whereas their messages felt very formalized/templatized. If I know anyone in the market in the future, I will definitely not hesitate to refer them your way.
David, 42
Being part of the free pool, I have been so impressed with my experience working with TDR! Heather really took the time to get to know me. Dating can be so exhausting, especially when using the dating apps. TDR does the initial legwork for me by introducing me to really great men who have been hand-picked based on our mutual interests, values, preferences, etc. I can count on TDR to thoughtfully match me with someone who has good intentions, is actually looking for a relationship, and who just may be the man of my dreams!

I appreciate the effort Louisa put into assisting me through this journey. Her advice, the dating coach, and the photo sessions helped me to create a better representation of myself and they all were an experience that got me to a better place.

I wanted to take a moment to thank Adelle for everything so far. I was a bit skeptical on the whole process, but went with my instinct, which told me Adelle knew what she was doing. I'm glad I did. Dating in LA is crazy, and while it's easy to get dates, it's difficult to find quality people - and nearly impossible to find quality people that have similar interests and values. Yet Adelle has delivered on two of two occasions. Not only has she delivered, she has knocked it out of the park! While they may not be the next Mrs. Heller, I'm extremely impressed with the quality of the matches and their similarity to what I described I was looking for in a partner.

I wanted to thank Adelle for everything she has done for me and for her support in finding a mate. I enjoyed the process and learned a lot about myself this year. She is a great spirit!

What makes Three Day Rule's personalized matchmaking different than other matchmaking companies?

When Talia, our CEO, founded Three Day Rule, her mission was to create a much more enjoyable, stress-free dating experience for both men and women. Here’s how we do it:

  • We are real people who meet you in person.
  • We find potential dates and ask them the hard questions, face to face.
  • We only introduce you to the most compatible matches.
  • You go on dates and give us feedback.

It’s dating, made simple.

We train every matchmaker in our Los Angeles headquarters to assure that our matchmakers are positive, empowering, and personalized in their approach to finding you a committed relationship.

How does TDR's personalized matchmaking service work?

You have two options: free and paid. In either option, the first step is to take our short quiz. This will take you less than five minutes. (You can add more depth as you go.) Completing the quiz puts you in our free database and lets our matchmakers search for you as a potential match for their clients. It also assigns you a personal matchmaker.

If you would like to explore the option of becoming a TDR paid client, you can request for your personal matchmaker to contact you, or you can go straight to scheduling an informal coffee meeting. Your matchmaker will meet with you to learn about your preferences and show you first-hand how we vet your matches. This initial meeting is free and no obligation.

What does TDR's personalized matchmaking service include?

Our packages including a certain number of vetted matches, personalized attention, and surprise perks from our partners.

Our most popular package is our 6-month personalized matchmaking package that includes:

  • An initial, in-depth session with your matchmaker to determine your preferences
  • 6 or more vetted introductions
  • Ongoing, personalized feedback sessions with your matchmaker after every date
  • Free access to TDR events
  • A complimentary photography session

Our 3-month personalized matchmaking package includes:

  • An introductory meeting with your matchmaker
  • 3 or more vetted introductions
  • Ongoing, personalized feedback sessions with your matchmaker after every date
  • Free access to TDR events

We also offer a multi-city package tailored to those who believe their best match could be anywhere and are willing to make the effort to find out. We accept clients who live outside our current service areas who are willing to travel for vetted matches.

I saw Shark Tank – what’s up with the name?

Just call us TDR. TDR believes that antiquated notions like the “three day rule” don’t reflect the desires and realities of today’s singles. Dating should not be dictated by games or myths about when you should make the first move. Instead, Three Day Rule aspires to create a fun and delightful dating experience for our members.

Do you serve the LGBT community?

Not yet, but hopefully soon! Please take our quiz and we will keep you posted on our launch date in your city.

Do you work with singles above the age of 45?

Absolutely. Our pool tends to range in age from 25-65, however we are always on the lookout for quality singles of any age. Should you decide to work with one of our Matchmakers, they will go to great lengths to ensure that they find amazing matches that are within the specific age range you are looking for.

I have additional questions. Who can I talk to?

For answers to any other questions, please email support@threedayrule.com
