Dating in the Golden State

Nearly half of all Americans say dating is tougher today than it was 10 years ago. Technology, casual hookups, and societal expectations are changing the game. California’s vast cultural diversity and varied lifestyle choices can present additional challenges for daters in the Golden State to navigate, demanding more than a quick swipe or chance encounter.

Cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco offer a spectrum of backgrounds and lifestyles, heightening the search for a partner who shares your career ambitions as well as your way of life.

Simplify Your Love Life

Between a high-achieving career and time spent exploring, from the beaches of the Bay Area to national parks, time becomes a valuable asset. Finding someone to share these adventures with – that one person who will turn the hours into minutes – takes time and energy you don’t have to spare.

With Maclynn, leave the strategizing to us. Our California matchmakers are experts in their craft, and have a global network of over 20,000 exceptional singletons at their fingertips. Combining insightful, personalized date coaching and our clients’ openness to growth we achieve a success rate of around 85%, building lasting, fulfilling relationships efficiently and in complete confidentiality.
