The Pitfalls of Swipe Culture

Whilst modern dating methods are a convenient way to meet new people, they come with their own set of challenges. Failing to account for deeper, more meaningful factors can lead to unfulfilling, superficial connections.

We recognize the limitations of these methods and have developed a unique, psychology-led approach to matchmaking. By focusing on key personal traits and the science of human connection, we help our clients find partners who are compatible on a more profound level, with the potential for a long-lasting relationship.

Lasting Connections With Psychology-Based Matchmaking

We understand that finding the right partner is not just about swiping right or left on a dating app, nor is it about going on endless dates. Instead, finding true love requires a deeper understanding of your core values, personality traits, and life goals.

Maclynn’s NYC-based matchmakers are highly trained professionals who understand the psychology of dating and attraction. We work with clients on a one-to-one basis to create a deep understanding of what they are looking for in a partner. By conducting a thorough psychological profiling to understand each of our client’s core values and unique romantic needs, we make highly compatible matches that are built to last.
