Rachel is a go-getting, effusive lady who was enjoying a successful career in finance when I first met her. She had never married and she didn’t have children. She really wanted both.
Rachel is a classic example of the high-flying clients to whom we at Maclynn International are accustomed. She had the business acumen and incredible drive to have climbed high up the corporate ladder – but she also had a humble, family-oriented, gentle side known only to a certain few (including me, her matchmaker). In Rachel’s experience, the men she was meeting only fit into one of these two categories.
I introduced Rachel to her match in October 2018. In Rachel’s own words, he was the ‘salt-of-the-earth’. He’s assertive, strong, tenacious, but incredibly proud of where he’s come from and who he is. He had recently changed path from corporate finance to entrepreneurism and had created an incredible organization with a philanthropic initiative.
Rachel and her match hit it off as if they’d known one another all their lives. They fell head over heels, have been introduced to each other’s families, and are still together to this day.
I’ve been a client for almost six months having spent six prior years on dating sites. The women that I’ve been introduced to have all been smart, kind and interesting. I’m currently getting to know a fascinating woman, and wouldn’t it be lovely if she and I turn out to be compatible!
Elise has continued to make piercing observations about who I am and what my core values are, and honed her sense of what I truly need in a partner.
Working with Maclynn has bolstered my belief that there is someone out there with whom I can develop a deep and lasting bond…we’re going to find her, and we may have done so already!
After losing my husband, I never thought I would be able to fall in love again. My matchmaker reassured me that there can be multiple soul mates for people and that I would once again feel the love I felt before. I started the process slowly and ended up meeting someone after five months. I am currently enjoying every minute of getting to know him and feeling in love again.
Nancy is a beautiful and elegant, 75-year-old woman living in NYC. She came to us looking for a kind, intellectual, sophisticated gentleman with a passion for travel and the arts. At her age, Nancy was concerned that she wouldn’t be able to find someone that matched her youthfulness both in mind and spirit.
She was very adamant about only meeting someone that lived in NYC. When I met Michael, a gentleman living in France, I knew that he was everything Nancy was looking for. Nancy and Michael were aligned in not only their lifestyles and aspirations but most importantly their core values. Despite her reluctancy to meet someone that lived internationally, introducing the two of them was a no-brainer. So, when Michael was in New York visiting family, Nancy agreed to go on a date with him.
After their first date, the two were both unsure about how a long-distance relationship would work but couldn’t deny there was chemistry between them. They decided to stay in touch and continued to get to know each other. Quickly realizing their compatibility, the two began visiting each other multiple times, meeting up m in various cities throughout Europe and the United States. After a year of long-distance, Michael has recently decided to relocate to NYC to be closer to his family and, of course, Nancy. The two are excited to see how their relationship will continue to grow!
Things are going great between X and I. He is really amazing – thank you for working your matchmaking magic!
Elise hits the nail on the head when it comes to selecting my matches. These are actually the kinds of women I want to meet! With her guidance, I feel more optimistic about dating.

My client was a widower whose partner died unexpectedly. After many years of mourning, and with the support of his family and friends, he allowed the idea of meeting someone special to enter his mind. He decided to reach out to Maclynn International to help, as he felt the process of online dating would not be compatible for his search. When he came to our agency, he made it clear that this was his last effort to find love again, and he put immense trust into our hands.
This client knew exactly what he wanted in a partner. He came to the table with years of experience in a vibrant, healthy relationship and he knew what worked for him. We were able to fine tune and dig deep on these attributes – of which most important were a deep sense of compassion and a genuine desire to be in a committed, monogamous relationship. More importantly, though, we were able to construct a tailored screening process to hone in on these qualities. The people we were reviewing together had exactly the attributes that my client needed in a partner. All he had left to worry about was finding someone he had chemistry with.
After only few months, my client was introduced via video to a sophisticated, gentle-hearted Frenchman. The first message I received from this client following the introduction read “This was the best date I ever had.” Despite them being oceans apart, it took only a few more calls before they made the decision to date exclusively. Shortly thereafter, they made travel plans to meet face-to-face and have been happily together since.
I was reluctant to pursue the assistance of a “matchmaker.” However, after meeting the very personable Gina, and learning more about the company and their services, I decided to try it out. Although I have not yet met my “match”, I have been introduced to attractive, professional women, with similar interests. I would absolutely recommend their services. Gina’s expertise shines, she fully understands my personality and preferences. I am completely satisfied.
Elise I think of as not just my matchmaker but a wonderfully compatible match of our own for this process. She is charming and thorough in her approach, but most importantly, like me, she is upbeat. Realistic while also enthusiastic. Securing a meeting of hearts and minds is like “finding a needle in a haystack.” Elise is making of this for me a much more possible dream.
Judy and I had a lovely day together yesterday, walking around Central Park.
She’s going to come and visit my house in the Hamptons, and I am really loving every minute I spend with her. She’s so thoughtful and I’m loving our deep conversations. I can’t believe how happy I feel to be starting a relationship with someone again.
Thank you Elise. You’re so kind to help me on this journey.
Dan is a highly successful entrepreneur and business owner. Sharply handsome, charming and kind, Dan, a divorcee, was the very definition of a ‘catch’. An incredibly intelligent gentleman and a lover of deep conversations, he was in need of someone who could match him intellectually, stimulate his imagination, challenge his worldview. The women Dan was meeting were very nice, sure – but they weren’t on the same intellectual level as he was.
Dan is a goal setter. He decides what he’s going to do, then he does it. Ordinarily, the world of love doesn’t work quite so formulaically (if only), but, in coming to Maclynn International, Dan was able to bypass dates with women who weren’t right for him and streamline the entire process. When Dan and I first met, he told me straight: “Gina, I know you’ll be the one to get me into a relationship.”
The woman I introduced him to was a thinker, a reader. She was articulate, thoughtful, compassionate and genuine. She’s well-travelled, cultured; she yearned to meet a gentleman of a similar mindset, who’d seen the world, who was athletic, driven, funny. Dan was all of these and more. All I had to do was light the match, sit back and watch the romance take hold.
Fast-forward to four months later. My husband and I are walking up to the front door of a beautiful home. We’re welcomed by Dan and his match; it’s their house-warming.
I really cannot thank Alice enough for introducing us. Things have been going so well, I’m very happy!
Gina, she is great! Please put my membership on hold- I have no interest in meeting anyone else – thank you Gina.

Alex is extraordinarily professional, kind, empathic and a great listener. He represented his client with enthusiasm and I discovered he was totally accurate regarding his assessment of her after she and I had a Zoom meeting. He is terrific!
My client joined in March 2017. He is a lawyer who splits his time between NYC & London. He is 34, and wanted to meet a woman who had a similar mentality to life, someone who had also lived globally and has an international mind-set. The women he was meeting didn’t fit on an intellectual level or attraction. His core values are centred around education, his family, and health, and he was looking to find someone who complemented this.
I completed his Compatibility Profiling over an afternoon Skype conversation. He was then heading to New York to spend a month there. On his second introduction in NYC I matched him with a gorgeous New Yorker. She is truly inspirational, warm, upbeat, and like him, healthy. She has a passion for learning, is a successful writer, and can talk on all subjects. My client had met his match! They are still together and he is very pleased it only took him 3 introductions to meet his ideal lovely lady.
Gina, you and I clicked in a way where you truly understand. I remember when I met you, I said this girl will do something if I work with her. And it’s played out in the most extraordinary way. It’s so hard to come across compassionate people.
I am so happy Gina! I really appreciate you supporting us all the way through to this point! We wouldn’t have got here without you. Thank you so so much.
Anna is fab. We are having a fabulous weekend together and have just booked a trip to Mexico. We love you Gina!
My LA based client was desperately tired of the dating scene. He was widowed, in his 50s, and felt exhausted by his attempts to find a romantic companion – so much so, he almost gave up entirely before signing up for our service in April 2020, right at the height of COVID-19. Despite the pandemic and all the difficulties it brought with it, this client was in a happy relationship with a kind, engaged, and committed man within our first few months of working together. So many potential clients have asked me, “shouldn’t I wait until COVID is over before making this leap?” And every time, my wonderful LA based client comes to mind.
