New York – About Us

Founded by British Chartered Psychologist* Rachel Maclynn in 2011, Vida is an international agency.  Rachel originally joined the world of matchmaking over ten years ago, drawn in by an advert for a psychologist to join a matchmaking agency she’d seen in Psychology Today.  She was immediately hooked by the idea of working with successful, influential people and able to change their lives by helping them finding love.

Rachel MacLynn is renowned as a world-leading matchmaking and dating expert. She sits on the Advisory Committee for the Matchmaking Institute (head quartered in New York)  and is widely featured in the press. Our approach is personal, professional and discreet. Our network of exceptional singletons has been hand selected, interviewed in detail and vetted by us.  We match people both international and also locally in New York.

Our use of psychological principles and business expertise has developed Vida into a world-class matchmaking agency, winning Matchmaking Agency of the Year in both 2016 and 17. Our matchmakers and consultants have undergone intensive training to deliver the best quality service, having a great deal of experience in both psychology and matchmaking between them.

*Rachel is licensed to practise psychology in the UK


Our Principles


Combining psychological principles with professional consultation, we deliver matchmaking with the ultimate professional and ethical standards.


We offer the best quality service for London’s most exceptional people. Our success is maintained at a high level by being selective about who we accept as members, then setting up introductions to hand-selected matches, discreetly.


By believing in our own capabilities as matchmakers, and taking a genuine interest in the wellbeing of our members, we have become renowned internationally for being the best.
