Simple. I needed a service that had my interests at heart.
You cannot get that from cyberspace.
Client interview for DNA 2012 – John 55
A few years after my separation from a long-term relationship I was finally ready to move on. I had no idea how and what was the best thing for me. I didn’t feel confortable and want to use the on line services or spend my weekends in the bar as this is not me. I like my privacy and to be honest I didn’t want my time to be wasted – I wanted someone to look after me in a more of a professional personal manner. So one day I goggled Gay Match Making Service and Beau Brummell Introductions came up.
As soon as I read the website I knew I had found the right business to l look after me. In my professional world I also use professional services to find the right staff for me so why not the same concept to find that someone special for me.
Contacting BBI was one of the best decisions I have ever made. When I first contacted, Vinko returned my call the following day and we had a great chat on the phone, it would have taken an hour or so – this followed by a meeting face to face. After our face-to-face meeting both parties were happy to continue working together. This is where the fun started as from here I had three dates with Vinko and Andrea – we shared stories together and spent time getting to know each other. I enjoyed this very much and felt confortable in their company.
Two weeks later I was on my first date, believe it or not this was the only date I have had with BBI. Michael was the first and only person I have met through BBI after carefully choosing from the list of profiles Vinko and Andrea sent me and following on their advice we corresponded with Michael back and forth a few times to know we were all on the same page. When we were sure it was the right interlocution – the phone numbers were exchanged, the date was organized, we went to the Art Gallery and talked for about an hour. First date was short and sweet per the boys suggestion. Needles to say there was another date a few days later and 2 months into meeting Michael we took a holiday together. Six months later we moved in together.
I will always remember 1st of March as a very special date in my life as this is when I met my new love that I didn’t think it was going to be possible to fined after the loss of my long term partner. From the first date I felt like I was on a date with a man who was my soul mate. Michael possesses all the qualities that I had hoped for and on top of that we have that special chemistry that every gay man is looking for.
Today, I could not be happier with my decision to be productive and employ professional business to look after my personal life. When Vinko asked me if I could write him a reference I was thrilled that I could share my story with everyone, as I understand how difficult it is to meet the right person to share the life with. I will always be thankful to the boys at BBI – they listened to me and they did everything possible to make me feel secure, offering to work with me for as long as it took as they know that this can take time – I guess I was just lucky that it happened on a first introduction. Vinko and Andrea always explained that they were not going to throw boys at me or send me on wrong introductions and this is what I loved the most as I have no time to waste. They analysed my needs and desires and from there went about searching for the right match for me for the right man that offered me the potential for a life time partner.
Thank you once again Vinko and Andrea.
The best compliment I can give your company and you both is that I have never once felt like this was a business arrangement between professionals… instead, it has consistently felt like a friendship …… Vinko and Andrea have from the beginning exceeded my expectations…
They believe not only that they can find a match, but will…..this is a great security blanket for anyone, to say the least.

Good morning Vinko and Andrea,
I just though I would drop you a line as I often think about this and with what you do everyday I think it is important to share it with you. I appreciate you being there for me on this journey. This is as much as a learning experience for me as it is an adventure – at times scare and at times exciting. What ever I am feeling you are there to guide me with your love and honesty. I have never felt uncomfortable, even when I was uncertain about things. I know that all the decisions are mine in the end, but having someone to talk them through and discuss, get your expertise and thoughts has been incredibly valuable. Just to get another perspective is important to me. So thank you so much for what you do, not just for me but for so many man out there who until you came along had no idea or had any avenues to meet people with their busy lifestyles. I would also like you to know that I am happy to speak to anyone that might be considering BBI and give them my experience and a testimonial in person so they can have a perspective from someone who has been a member. Just a thought…. Wish you all the best with your business and all the success.

Thank you so much for introducing me to Jonah – he is such a wonderful man and is totally my type! We are now attached at the hip and head over heels for each other. Its been almost two years since we met through Beau Brummell thanks to you and Andrea. I would have never met him without your wonderful service. You gave it 4 good goes before Jonah, and they were all nice guys but not for me, but this time you got it right and he won my heart. Please consider my membership cancelled, you have done more than a great job. Thank you. We will keep you posted on upcoming wedding bells!

Hi Vinko and Andrea
Stop warring about me for the moment – you hit the mark with introducing me to John……. We have had our 5th date and things could not be better. In every way imaginable. Thank you. I am very happy and I can feel that he is as well. I just want to finish the year off and take a long holiday for the whole of December and January together with John. Very hard to find the energy to work and concentrate on anything else but him. We will both keep you posted and stay in touch – well done boys!!!
I must admit that after the initial start that was fantastic there was a period after I finished dating Andrew that I didn’t feel so confident. I apologies for being difficult at this time and perhaps not patient enough. I remember you saying to me all of this is going to change so quickly when I introduce you to somebody that rocks your ……….- you are very funny Vinko. And yes you were right – and I am glad that it has happened in this way and you were particular about who you introduced me to. I would also like to acknowledge that I understand how difficult your work can be and how patient and kind you and Andrea are with me. Always giving love and being positive. Once again many thanks.

Just wanted to let you know that Michael asked me to move in together last night. It was one of the most beautiful and romantic evenings that I have ever had. Of course I said yes – it was like someone asking me to merry them. Very sweet. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for introducing us – it is certainly the best relationship I have ever had – and to say that at the age of 44 is something. May be I am at my best as well and it is all just a perfect timing. Michael is a perfect partner for me – we just fit on all levels and life is just easy.
I feel like my heart and my soul has found my forever… Fingers crossed.
Michael and Peter, Country NSW, 44 and 38 years old.
I’m so glad you’re feeling in the zone of things, and getting up into the creative / fun layer of things. You have such a complex job because it is so personal – and you are the ‘instrument’ of things, so to speak. I appreciate what you do for me. Hugs and kisses, and much love to you too XX

Dear Vinko and Andrea
I have spent years patiently waiting to meet “the right man”, but never finding him. Meeting men is easy; but there was always something that did not fit. My unusual religious background combined with uncommon interests made it very rare I could just relax and enjoy someone’s company; our interests and views were usually so different that just being with someone required effort, and I sometimes felt like I had pretend to be someone other than myself just to get along. On the few occasions that I did meet a man whom I felt I “fitted” with, there was no physical attraction. It seemed that I either had to pretend to be someone else; or have a relationship with no physical attraction at all (in which case I may as well have stayed in the closet and dated women); or I had to just stay single for the rest of my life with the vague hope of maybe one day meeting the right man. Prior to meeting Vinko and Andrea staying single was simply the best option of a bad lot. Someone shared a Beau Brummell Introductions link on Facebook, and I followed BBI on Facebook for several months; I finally made contact and arranged to meet.
Vinko and Andrea were very easy to be with; I felt quite embarrassed, I was admitting that I could not meet the right guy, and asking for help, but I prefer to be “strong and independent”! But Vinko and Andrea made it easy to relax. Over a period of four or five very informal meetings, Vinko and Andrea found out quite a lot about me, including asking questions that I had not even thought to ask myself! While the purpose of those meetings was for them to find out about me, and therefore who I might be a match with, those “meetings” were always very relaxed and felt more like meeting friends for a coffee than anything else. Five months ago, Vinko and Andrea organised my first introduction – to James; the first date went well (a walk around a lake on a sunny winter’s day); and James and I are still seeing each other. One of the most important things to me, is to be with people who genuinely intend to happy and peaceful; probably one of the aspects of that unusual religious background of mine. If you asked people if they intended to be happy and peaceful, most would probably say yes, but very few are actually committed to that – and that intention and commitment are essential to me. I love being with James; it is very easy to relax with him, to be happy, and to just enjoy his company without having to work at it, without having to pretend anything, and without feeling like I have to hide anything.
Life just seems good with James. The fact that he is also intelligent and handsome is also a bonus!
To be clear, James and I do put effort into what we do together; while I do feel very relaxed with James, that does not mean that we are lazy or lethargic! I simply mean that for the first time I feel I can be myself and enjoy life while in the company of a man whom I think is both wonderful and attractive.
James and I only met with the help of Vinko and Andrea; I have no doubt that I would still be single otherwise!
Thank you Vinko and Andrea!
