how it works

  At Match Made in Scotland, we offer a private, professional, and bespoke service. All of our clients will be interviewed face-to-face where possible and of course covid- dependent. Unlike online dating sites we do not use any fancy algorithms or artificial intelligence, we use old-fashioned matchmaking skills - matching people who have the same values, ambitions, and complementary personalities. 

 Our personal and consultative approach allows us to get to know what makes you tick and to evaluate which attributes are the most important for you in a life partner. Our principal focus is to help you find your soulmate. We do all of the groundwork to make it a stress-free and enjoyable experience while also saving you time and money dating unsuitable matches. We will be with you every step of the way and can be as hands-on or as hands-off as you wish. 

 Safety is our top priority and we vet and authenticate everybody.  

what our members say

"Just want to say a massive thank you to Laura from Match Made in Scotland for the service provided. As an extremely busy young entrepreneur, I’m finding zero time/luck with the likes of online dating at the moment. Partner this with Covid 19, there’s a near-zero possibility of me finding someone. Laura’s system, approach, and compassion towards helping people find their “future partner” is highly recommended and I look forward to the future with the people I will meet. Thank you again Laura & Match Made in Scotland” 
– Niall, 29 Glasgow. 
“Having decided to re-enter the dating scene after a number of years being single and being a busy professional I was struggling to find potential matches on traditional dating apps. Laura invested a significant amount of time getting to know my personality, lifestyle & desires.  Her professional and relaxed approach put me immediately at ease and I even felt a glimmer of hope at the end of the consultation process. It is clear that she has a strong desire to create successful matches and will spend the time going that extra mile to ensure maximum compatibility. I, therefore, would highly recommend this bespoke service to any professionals looking for potential partners.”

– Antonia, 37 Edinburgh
