Sue was seeking a matchmaking agency with a particularly strong international presence and network, which is why she joined Maclynn. She was 44 and was very much at a crossroads in her life when she approached us. She had a successful career as a HR Consultant in Zurich within finance and felt it was the right time to start prioritising other areas of her life. A keen philanthropist, she joined the Peace Corps as a volunteer on a 24-month contract in Senegal, but also wanted to use this time to find love. As her plan was to return to Europe eventually, she ideally wanted to meet someone in Switzerland or Western/Central Europe. She was open to video dating and to traveling to meet someone she had a strong connection with, and with that positive attitude, I was very happy to work with her. Am delighted to report, she is now married to a wonderful Swiss gentleman! After a few video dates they travelled to meet each other, they had a long-distance relationship for about a year and fell madly in love.
