Maclynn 5-Step Matchmaking Methodology
We need to understand your unique core principles and beliefs before we start envisaging the person who could be your life partner.
Define Your Ideal Match
Opposites attract—but only up to a point. Your ultimate match will have deeply held values that match yours, share your outlook on life, and just 'get' you like no one ever has before. They will live and breathe life just as you do.
Visualize The Relationship
Building a relationship that stands the test of time is about so much more than the person. Consider goals, roles, location. Your life's cogs must align with theirs. That's why we will attend to the minutiae of any potential match's character and lifestyle, ensuring you don’t meet someone who captivates you but is actually unavailable, either emotionally or geographically.
Create a Plan and Put it in Motion
Have you thrown yourself into dating and been left wondering why it isn’t working? The missing link might be a solid plan, and the knowledge required to execute it. Our experts and matchmakers will not only create a strategy bespoke to your needs and personality, but they'll deliver it as well. You'll barely need to give it a second thought.
Date Mindfully, with Meaning and Purpose
Dating shouldn't feel like a numbers game. Every interaction should be considered with the attention it deserves, with each introduction taking you closer to finding your ultimate match.

Why Professionals in London Prefer Maclynn
London is one of the busiest cities in the world and the dating scene is no exception. The city offers a wealth of opportunities for romance, but the key to unlocking its full potential is knowing where to look and how to navigate it – which is where we can help.
Compatibility Profiling: For busy professionals in London, our bespoke profiling session helps streamline the process of finding a compatible partner based on your own unique values. We need to understand your unique core principles and beliefs before we start envisaging the person who could be your life partner. Once your profile is complete, your matchmaker will begin their search.
Dedicated Matchmakers: You will be assigned your own dedicated matchmaker, who will help you navigate London’s overcrowded dating scene, provide advice and support and become your confidant and friend throughout your dating journey.
Exclusive Access: London is a large, diverse city, and knowing how to navigate its dating sphere can be challenging. We have access to over 17,000 members and your matchmaker will handpick the best matches for you. And of course, only you have the final say on who you meet.
Complete Confidentiality: London is a loud city, and you may prefer a more private approach to finding a partner – and not everyone wants to share their dating life with everyone in their social circle or have a profile on an app! We take client privacy and confidentiality extremely seriously, and the only people with access to your personal information and profile are our matchmakers.

Share the Love
I feel so lucky and happy to have you part of my life. I can’t believe that in the last 24 months you introduced me to the man of my dreams and I’m now holding a baby!
— Sarah, 39, London
I couldn’t feel any better or more excited about everything. We’re already talking about relocating. Thank you for making this happen.
— Anna, 35, London
Leila is much more than just a matchmaker. She’s my full-time wing woman! For years I’ve been seeking a solution to meet like-minded men without having to resort to gay bars, which is simply not my scene. Leila’s black book is really rather special.
— Henry, 41, London
Frankie has been fantastic throughout. I have felt in the best hands. Thank you for choosing her for me. She gives great advice, really knows what she is doing, has a calm confidence about her skills, and cares about me.
— Luke, 58, London
Some greater force brought us together when we would never have found each other otherwise. That greater force is Karen. And I am deeply grateful to her for making my life a happy one again!
— Helen, 43, London
Karen has been a wonderful guide throughout my experience, a very good, emotionally intelligent listener who fully understands my personality, background and aspirations. I always felt in very good hands, supported on a human standpoint and lead properly on the journey. Karen has helped me to create the perfect emotional environment first, then introduced me to many great people who fit my profile, and has always been there for me with a great smile and wonderful suggestions to support me throughout my experience.
Karen is smart, flexible, passionate and positive and I would recommend her to anyone interested in this journey
— Francesca, 49, London
I was 45 when I met my husband at my first Maclynn event just under 3 years ago. Recently single then, I rarely went anywhere without either my sister or a friend in tow. I’m so grateful to Maclynn for encouraging to come to their singles’ event alone.. as it was there that I met my now husband!
In May this year (2019), we were married in Central London after two and a half years of dating and he proposed almost a year after our first date on Christmas Day. He’s everything I wished for: warm, kind, intelligent, handsome and makes me howl with laughter like no other. Despite being in my forties, with many long term relationships behind me, I’d always believed that if you put yourself out there, remain optimistic and open, anything is possible!
— Victoria, 48, London
I have been a member of Maclynn for 6 months. I enjoy Rachel’s personal approach and willingness to pop out of the office, so we can have regular catch ups. The whole team is wonderful and it is so apparent that they genuinely love matchmaking! I am very happy and the introductions so far have all been very impressive!
— Julie, 52, London
Rachel, I just wanted to drop you a note and say how fantastic Joanna is for you. All too often people do not get the recognition and she is nothing less that a super star. Joanna always gives great feedback and is so very supportive with her guidance and advice. For me I would recommend Maclynn alone, just so people have Jo manage their hopes and dreams.
— Mark, 48, London
I knew Leila would find me someone. She seems to know everyone in London, so it didn’t take long! Matchmaking for Leila is not just a career, it’s a lifestyle. It shines through and I am glad to be at the receiving end of her magic!
— Paul, 52, London
