Maclynn is a bespoke matchmaking service that is unlike any other. We specialise in personalised introductions that are designed to understand exactly what you’re looking for in a partner and your future relationship aspirations. Our profiling system combined with our offline network of successful, attractive and cultured people enables us to hand-pick potential matches for you to meet.

We understand that the idea of meeting someone if you’re recently single at 50 can seem a daunting prospect, which is why our matchmakers work closely with you to help hand-select appropriate matches. We are more than just matchmakers here at Maclynn (formerly Vida), we genuinely care about each and every one of our clients and your personal matchmaker will become your confidant and friend throughout your membership and long-after.

What are the common problems people over 50 face when dating/or have become recently single?

  • Insecurity over attractiveness
  • Whether there is anyone out there for them after coming out of a long-term relationship
  • Whether they can even date, mainly anxiety around where and how to begin dating
  • Thinking they are younger than their age and not wanting to date similar ages or above
  • Worried about becoming someone’s caretaker
  • Worried they won’t find anyone
  • Feeling lonely
  • Keeping up appearances amongst a social circle full of couples

When people have been married for a long time, when they become single again they find that the whole dating world has changed. It’s a completely new dating landscape, if they were dating around 30 years ago there were no phones or online dating, and that’s all there is now.
We live in a throwaway society.

If you go back, these singletons that are now dating in their 50s were used to dating young, lively and attractive young people like themselves when they were in their 20s. Now they are looking at dating someone around their age, when in their mind they still feel like they’re in their 20s.

How is Maclynn’s service tailored to accommodate someone over 50?

Maclynn’s service is no different for someone over 50, we match based on an alignment of values and these core values are likely to be similar throughout your life, although they may change in priority depending on what life stage you are at.

People dating in their 50s may feel less pressured to get married or have children (more relevant to women), for them it can mean the dating process is slower and more about finding someone you can truly spend the rest of your life with.

What’s different about Maclynn in contrast to other matchmaking and dating websites for over 50s?

Matchmaking is a personalised service that is tailored to you, whereas online dating websites may use algorithms there is less precision in the matching. Maclynn includes a bespoke search based on an alignment of core values, we focus on finding a life time partner.

Is the matchmaking process different for people over 50? (as opposed to younger singles?)

No it shouldn’t be different for people over 50. We work with a number of clients ranging from early twenties to mid-seventies and the matchmaking process is the same.

The clients over 50 may be looking for something different, are more likely to have settled in their life, with a stable career or coming into early retirement. For these people, finding the right partner is important so that they can enjoy the rest of their lives together.

How our bespoke matchmaking for over 50s works

how dating over 50 works
It all begins with arranging a personalised introduction with one of our experienced matchmakers. During your introduction, you will be asked a series of questions to help identify your core values, your relationship goals, preferences and desire and your ideal future partner. When your personalised profile has been created, we will identify a compatible match through our private, offline dating network of exceptional individuals.

Each person in our network has been selected based on academic and career achievement, language, culture and travel. During your 6-18 month membership with us, we will work hard to identify compatible matches based on your requirements and relationship goals.

Through your matchmaking journey, you will form a close bond with your matchmaker, they will become your confidant and your friend. They will personally search through our offline network for potential matches that best suit your preferences and then filter them down to a select few who they believe are the most compatible.

Once we have selected your potential matches, you and your matchmaker will review the profiles and discuss whether they meet your requirements and when you would like to meet them.

Matchmaking for Over 50s

Our bespoke matchmaking service is based off three core principles:

  • Psychological Principles

Dating when you’re over 50 is very different to dating in your 20s and our psychological principles take this into account. We combine professional consultation with a foundation of psychological principles to truly get to know you. Once we have worked together to complete your private personal file, we will review profiles for potential matches. This is both a fun and important exercise to further understand the type of person you’re looking for.

  • Hand-Selected Exceptional People

Our offline private network of exceptional single men and women extends across the globe, meaning you could live in London and find a compatible match in New York. Our members are selected based on academic achievement, cultural exploration, artistic talent and career-based success. At the centre of it all, are core values. Every one of our members holds decent core values and all have one common goal in mind: the commitment to finding a partner for life.
