Meet Your Matchmakers

Wendy Tse, Founder and Head Matchmaker

Wendy Tse

Dubbed “Singapore’s Sassiest Matchmaker”, Wendy’s matchmaking style combines her deep understanding of the psychology of love, with a proven ability to coach individuals to reach their fullest potential. Growing up in Singapore, Wendy was always the go-to person when friends needed dating tips and relationship advice. Her matchmaking instincts led her to set many of them up on dates, and resulted in many happy marriages.

While pursuing a career in banking, Wendy chanced upon the matchmaking industry in the United States. Over a Psychology programme at Columbia University and a course at the Matchmaking Institute, Wendy dived into the study of the psychology of love, and graduated as a Certified Matchmaker. Although Wendy luxuriated in her banking career, she boldly followed her heart and pursued her penchant for matchmaking full-time, armed with a rolodex of some of the most eligible people in Asia, whom she had met over the course of her education and banking career.

Soon after Society W was founded in 2011, Wendy was admitted to every matchmaker’s dream destination, “The Love M.B.A.”, a highly-selective matchmaker training programme by renowned dating expert Rachel Greenwald (New York Times’ best-selling author and highly acclaimed matchmaker). Since then, Society W has grown from a humble, bespoke agency to a reputable brand in the global matchmaking industry, with a presence in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Switzerland. Wendy has been seen by many as one of the world’s most-respected matchmakers, with networks across the United States, Europe and Asia. She has an international portfolio of the most elite clientèle, which includes prominent business people, professionals, celebrities, and the like. She regularly provides dating advice and opinions across popular media publications and channels, such as Esquire, Channel NewsAsia, The Edge, News 5, 938LIVE, Her World and Europe 1, just to name a few. Wendy is committed to changing mindsets and removing the social stigma surrounding matchmaking. In the long run, she aims to play an integral role in reshaping Asia’s dating scene so that single men and women can openly embrace bespoke, efficient, and targeted matchmaking services.

Wendy is currently pursuing a Masters in Psychology and Neuroscience (Mental Health) at King's College London. She graduated with a Bachelor of Business degree at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as Valedictorian of her class.
