With people leading more and more busy lives all the time it’s no surprise that there are a growing number of people that are single and not happy about it. Yes, I’m putting my hand up too. Grindr, Manhunt, Dudesnude etc are all very popular but 99% of users are looking for a more quick fix to their urges than a dating scenario. So what if you aren’t? What if you want romance?

There’s a relatively new player to the introduction scene here in Sydney. Beau Brummell Introductions is specifically geared towards professional gay men. Now I haven’t signed up. I’m not in a position financially to be throwing money at my singledom issues, so I have no idea what they are like but I’m not sure how I feel about dating agencies in general. Can they really find someone for you/me?

The sceptic in me thinks that lots of guys will just lie about what they really want, listing long walks on the beach, romantic dinners and cuddles after sex, when really they want walks of shame, a snack on the walk home and nothing more than a shower and to hustle you out the door after sex. I could be very wrong. I hope I am because while I don’t want overly clichéd dating experiences I am a romantic at heart.
