Older Dating & Bespoke Matchmaking for Mature Singles

5 min read

Maclynn (formerly Vida) provides personalised older dating & matchmaking services across the globe. Arrange your consultation today.

Maclynn (formerly Vida) is an internationally renowned bespoke matchmaking agency that specialises in personalised introductions for older dating. 

We believe that the process for finding the right life partner does not change with age, and we take time to understand your core values and future relationship goals to ensure we identify compatible matches based on your preferences. 

We know that older dating can be a daunting prospect for some, especially in an age where 15 million people in the UK are registered for online dating. That’s why Maclynn breaks the mould and provides a fully personalised and private matchmaking service that identifies a handful of eligible people that share your life goals. 

Online dating apps can provide a strong platform for older people to communicate and meet up. However, most online dating apps are not personalised enough for older people to truly connect or be partnered with others who share the same principles and long-term goals. 

Through us, you will not have to create your own profile or spend your evenings swiping and searching for the right person. We do this for you through a personalised and private consultation that identifies your core values and matches them with like-minded single individuals. 

Our bespoke matchmaking service for older daters has been specifically designed to be relaxed, informal and enjoyable. 

We’re looking forward to meeting you and finding your life partner. 

How Maclynn’s Bespoke Matchmaking Service Works

At Maclynn (formerly Vida), we understand that dating at any age can sometimes be difficult, especially in a world now dominated by online dating. Through our experienced team of professional matchmakers, we will identify potential matches based on your core values, relationship goals and personal preferences. 

This information is obtained through an informal, personalised introduction with one of our matchmakers, who will become your confidant and friend as you continue your journey with us. We then select potential partners based on your private profile, all of which have been hand-selected based on their backgrounds in education, careers, travel culture and of course, their compatibility with your profile.

Your membership with Maclynn typically lasts between 6 – 18 months, and in this time, you will be introduced to a variety of individuals who closely match your personal references and long-term relationship goals. 

Upon identifying a handful of compatible matches, your matchmaker will contact you with their profiles for you to assess before agreeing to meet or communicate with them further. If you are happy to proceed, your matchmaker can arrange a meet-up based on your requirements. 

What We Base Older Dating Principles On

Our matchmaking principles are based on the following:

  • Our psychological principles remain the same in older dating

Our expert matchmakers combine psychological principles with personal and private consultations to understand what type of person you’re looking for as well as your relationship goals for the future. These consultations are designed to be informal, enjoyable and offer us a welcoming platform to get to know you and for you to understand how our process works.

The way we conduct each personalised introduction does not change, whether you’re in your 20s or 30s or over 60, our matchmaking process remains the same. However, clients over 50 or 60 may, of course, be looking for a different kind of relationship to those in their 20s, 30s, or 40s and this is something that is addressed during your personalised introduction. 

  • Exceptional people based on core values

Maclynn uses an offline, private network of exceptional single men and women from around the globe. Our clients often have a variety of achievements, from career success to travel, education and respectable core values. And when we say around the globe, we mean it. We are an international matchmaking agency that can put you in contact with potential matches from major cities around the globe. Your potential life partner may be located in the South of France or just around the corner in Mayfair!

There’s only one major principle each of our hand-selected people share in common, and that’s respectable core values and the commitment to finding a partner for life.

  • We offer an award-winning matchmaking service

Our bespoke matchmaking service has won several awards since our establishment in 2011. The awards take into account our professionalism, approachability, reputation and of course, customer satisfaction. We are proud winners of the following matchmaker awards:

  • UK Matchmaking Agency of the Year 2017
  • International Matchmaker of the Year 2017
  • European Matchmaking Agency of the Year 2017
  • European Matchmaking Agency of the Year 2016

Arrange Your Personal Consultation Today

If you’re unsure regarding what our service includes or you’d like to learn more about over older dating, our team are more than happy to help. Whether you’re recently single, separated or bereaved, our team of matchmakers are here to offer a friendly and approachable service.


How is Maclynn’s service tailored to accommodate older daters?

Our matchmaking service does not necessarily change depending on age because we identify potential partners based on shared core values. In most cases, singles over 50 typically share the same values and relationship goals. For example, older daters may feel less pressure to get married or have children, thus allowing the dating process to be slower and more about getting to know your potential life partner.

What’s different about Maclynn in contrast to other dating websites?

In most cases, online dating websites use algorithms to identify potential partners. However, our matchmaking process is based on getting to know you on a far more personal level. Understanding your deep-held principles is something an app will not be able to calibrate! Our service is personal, bespoke and your matchmaker will not only become your confidant but your friend. 

Our private, offline network is another reason clients opt for our matchmaking service. By having access to an elite group of single men and women across the globe, it opens more doors and opportunities for you to meet exceptional people. 

How long will my membership last?

Our memberships are typically 6-18 months but you have the option to extend this should you wish to. However, if you ever need support or advice after your membership has finished, we are only a phone call away. Throughout your membership, you will have developed a strong and lasting bond with your personal matchmaker and that friendship requires no membership fee!
