Leading Switzerland Dating Agency and Matchmaking Service

At Maclynn (formerly Vida), we have been focusing on orchestrating personal introductions between exceptional individuals worldwide since 2011. We have worked with single individuals across Switzerland, predominantly in Geneva and Zurich in that time.

The dating world can be tough, particularly in a financial hub like Zurich, where the hustle and bustle means one can’t fit in a quiet drink, or romantic dinner, least of all with someone who may or may not be searching for a life partner. Here at Maclynn we make this process that little bit shorter, guaranteeing you only meet those looking for the same commitment and relationship as you. Our methods are by no means industrial. At Maclynn, your package is bespoke and tailored to you as an individual.

Over the course of your membership (6-18 months) you are introduced to a number of individuals, each selected as a compatible match for you, all of whom have undergone our detailed vetting process.

Your personal matchmaker is more than just a voice at the end of the phone. Our team are invested in your happiness; we want you to find love at Maclynn. Through your journey, you can count on your matchmaker to become your eyes and ears- helping introduce you to people you are genuinely excited to meet.

Now, I advocate for Maclynn to all my single friends, emphasizing that while the journey may have challenges, finding the right person is incredibly rewarding.
