Maclynn International is a New York-based elite matchmaking and dating agency that specializes in combining psychological principles with personalized consultations to help people find their life-partners. We adopt a tailored approach to matchmaking, using informal profiling sessions to understand what you’re looking for in a partner (core values, religion, careers, location among others) and then identifying potential matches from our private, offline network.

We know that time is a currency when it comes to dating and meeting the right person. With Maclynn International, you are assigned your own personal matchmaker so that you don’t have to spend time and energy swiping left and right on dating apps or online dating platforms and ultimately meeting the wrong people for you.

What Does a Matchmaker Do?

The definition of a matchmaker is, ‘a trained professional who specializes in identifying potential partners and initiates long-lasting relationships for both female and male clients’. All matchmakers use different approaches for their clients depending on how the matchmaking agency operates and the personal preferences of the client. Matchmakers primarily focus on introducing clients to matches based on shared interests, but it’s up to the client and to sustain the relationship. Some matchmaking agencies also provide date coaching.

Does Matchmaking Really Work?

Yes, it absolutely does. At Maclynn International, we have an exceptionally high success rate of 85% but this number does depend on, being relationship-ready, having realistic expectations and also one must approach the matchmaking process with a positive attitude.  We have a much higher level of success with clients who possess a positive mind-set towards matchmaking, and to finding a partner in general.

What Service Can I Expect from Maclynn International’s Matchmakers?

Once you become a Private Member of our matchmaking agency, you will be assigned your own personal matchmaker to help you navigate through the dating world. They will become your confidant and friend throughout your 6-12 month membership and they will be there to turn to, regarding all relationship-based questions.

How Does Matchmaking Work?

At Maclynn International, it all starts by getting in touch either by calling us direct or sending a message via our contact form. From here, we will discuss your relationship goals and discuss our bespoke matchmaking process.

The next stage is inviting you to a profiling session – either through video, phone call or face-to-face. Here, we will begin discussing the type of person you’re looking for and get to understand what your core values are and what you’re expecting from your new relationship. 

Your matchmaker will ask you a series of questions that delve into your past relationships, family, hobbies, religion and relationship expectations. All information shared between you and your personal matchmaker is completely confidential. Try to be as honest and transparent as possible during your profiling session, as this will help us identify the most appropriate partner for you. We understand that some information may be sensitive, but many of our professional matchmakers have backgrounds in psychology and are trained to handle sensitive information to ensure you feel comfortable throughout this process.

Next, Identifying Your Matches

Once your profiling session is complete, your matchmaker will begin to identify potential matches based on the information you provided using our private, offline network. They will select a number of exceptional individuals that closely match your core values and long-term relationships goals. All individuals from our private network have been vetted by our matchmakers and excel in a range of cultural, academic, career and language-based achievements.  

Your matchmaker takes care of everything from here-on-in. They will take time to identify appropriate matches and contact you with their profiles for your perusal. If you like what you see, you can request to meet them (this is something we can also arrange).
