Meet the Founder

Rachel Vida MacLynn is the founder of Maclynn. After five years in psychology, a serendipitous moment in 2006 led her to switch careers, realising her true calling lay in matchmaking

Guided by her father's life stories and her parents' philosophy of love without labels, Rachel founded The Vida Consultancy (later to be known as Maclynn) in 2011. Its purpose was to offer a world-class matchmaking service focused on self-discovery and growth.

With a Master's in Occupational Psychology, her values of integrity, high standards, inclusion, and empowerment underpin Maclynn's unique matchmaking model. Clients describe her as calm, compassionate, warm, and wise.


Beyond Surface-Level Compatibility

San Francisco’s accomplished professionals require a partner whose intelligence, success, and ambition match their own. Yet the search for a partner who’s compatible on a higher level can feel uninspiring and time-consuming.

When you’ve grown accustomed to perfectionism in your professional life, it can be difficult to approach dating with an open mind. Our matchmakers use a psychology-based methodology to help you reflect deeply on exactly what you’re looking for in a partner, translating this into meaningful matches that meet your expectations but also challenge them when there’s room to grow.

Meeting Standards Through Meaningful Matchmaking

We understand the nuance required to meet the expectations of our discerning clients. Since 2011, we have built a global network of 19,000 elite singletons, carefully vetted by our experienced matchmakers who seek out exceptional personal qualities, from business prowess to philanthropic endeavors. We handle this screening process for you, giving you access to high-caliber matches from the outset.

When you work with us, you’ll be assigned a personal matchmaker who is uniquely positioned to understand your place in San Francisco’s fast-paced, competitive dating scene. Becoming more akin to a close friend and confidante, they will take the time to understand your lifestyle, passions and values, striving to forge connections based on compatibility that goes beyond the superficial.
