About Us

Your New Destination (YND) was founded in 1993 in Cartagena, Colombia by a Latin woman Gloria Blakley. Gloria holds a Masters Degree in Psychology and understands the sensitive relationship needs of serious singles in search of a partner. YND has provided matchmaking services for thousands of North and South American singles looking to meet high quality partners through a confidential and professional introductory service. 

The Matchmaking process, including client feedback and coaching, has been conducted by Gloria and her team who is dedicated to the successful matching of compatible singles. YND has made thousands of relationship introductions with many ending in successful marriages. We have grown our team of professional matchmakers in response to the growing demand for our services from the Americas and beyond. Our newly constructed administrative headquarters in Orlando, Florida, will serve as an opportunity for singles to meet our staff in person and design a professional member profile including a photo shoot if necessary. The YND team is looking forward to working with “You” on an individual basis to help ‘You” find the happiness ‘You” deserve. Working with an experienced matchmaker will be more effective than a lifetime of random relationship hunting on your own.
