Enjoy Discreet, Confidential Matchmaking with Bowes-Lyon Partnership
‘Discretion’ is this week’s dating buzzword – and luckily for London’s legion of professionals looking for love, elite dating agency Bowes-Lyon Partnership has it in abundance.
After it was revealed that both Benedict Cumberbatch and Geri Halliwell decided to forego the publicist statements and PR whirlwinds to declare their respective engagements in the ‘Announcements’ section of The Times, all the talk in the dating world has turned to the benefits of privacy and confidentiality when it comes to relationships. Bowes-Lyon Partnership is an exclusive introduction agency which shuns public profiles and adopts a more low-key approach when match-making their elite clients. In offering this kind of discreet service, the matchmaking experts cater to professionals who want to find a relationship without broadcasting it to their peers via a dating profile or an online notification.
Hayley Bystram, Director of Bowes-Lyon Partnership, says, “The rise of online dating has been incredible in recent years, but some people feel very uncomfortable about having their intimate details splashed across the internet in the hope of attracting a partner. Many of our clients are refined, successful individuals, with positions of prestige in business, commerce and leisure – they demand a more confidential, respectful service that keeps things 100% discreet.”
She adds, “We do everything we can to ensure a totally confidential service – we don’t even pass on information to prospective matches without every client’s express permission. In a world where we can’t open a Facebook feed without public proclamations of love, we’re here to reassure those looking for love that it’s still possible to maintain a modicum of privacy at every stage of the dating process.”
Bowes-Lyon Partnership functions differently from many modern dating agencies, where clients sign up with a profile and search a database for compatible matches. The matchmaking team at the London introduction agency prefer to get to know each of their clients individually, using a mixture of intuition and sophisticated algorithm to match up prospective partners based on criteria like morals, values and goals. This more personal, private approach has been highly successful, and is a great alternative for those who shun the attention-grabbing nature of some dating services.
The private approach to dating has worked well for many who find themselves in positions of power or particular scrutiny. Bond actor Daniel Craig and his A-list wife Rachel Weisz are so protective of their privacy as a couple, that only four people attended their wedding, including their two children – they have been together five years almost to the month and are as strong as ever. Sarah Jessica Parker and her husband Matthew Broderick have been married for fifteen years and are also famously tight-lipped when it comes to their relationship – many power couples credit their successful relationships to their commitment to privacy. Benedict Cumberbatch and Geri Halliwell look set to follow in the footsteps of these famous figures. Now, with Bowes-Lyon Partnership, elite London professionals can do the same.
