Our Matchmaking Methods

Over a period of 6–18 months, you will meet a series of attractive, intelligent, dynamic individuals, all interviewed and vetted with you in mind.

By working with a dating agency you will have a dedicated matchmaker, based in London who will become confidante, consultant and comrade. They will personally search and assess potential matches for you from our network of thousands of amazing, eligible singletons, before honing in on a handpicked few who most accurately complement your own values.

Bored of idle bar chat, noncommittal city-goers, shallow short-term relationships? Our boutique service is waiting for you. We’d love to meet you, and hope to welcome you as a member soon.

Maclynn 5-Step Matchmaking Methodology

  1. 5steps, book, heart

    Know Yourself

    We need to understand your unique core principles and beliefs before we start envisaging the person who could be your life partner.

  2. 5steps, Maclynn

    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.

  3. 5steps, Maclynn, pencil

    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.

  4. 5steps, script, Maclynn

    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.

  5. 5steps, head, heart, human

    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.
