Hi Patti,

Just wanted to let you know that tonight Mike asked me to marry him. Getting to know him and falling in love with him again and again over the past year has been the most wonderful experience. I could not ask for a more caring man or a better life partner and I would have never met him if I hadn’t taken a risk and trusted you. Thank you so much for bringing him into my life. There aren’t enough words to express the joy you brought to our lives.

Dear Patti and Staff,

Chris & I have mutually agreed to date each other exclusively.  Therefore, I would like to put my  membership on hold.

Thank you so much for thinking of Chris as a match for me.  We have been spending a great deal of time together;  I’ve really enjoyed the time spent getting to know each other and I find new things that I like about him & his character every time that I see him.

Have a wonderful day.
Sincerely,
Monique

Hello!,
As of now, I’d like to go on hold until further notice so I can continue getting to know Mark. He is a great guy! Thanks for matching us!

Dear Patti and Staff,
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for introducing me to Colin. We really have a great thing going. He took me to his work Christmas party in December. We had an amazing  time together. He has met a lot of my friends at a few different social events. I even think my youngest daughter has accepted him.  We spend as much time together as humanly possible. We are soooo  HAPPY!

Patti, today is one year to the day that I went out on my first date with my sweetheart, Alex.  And it is one year to the day we will marry.  This is the most amazing man I have ever met – an I have you to thank for introducing us. We would never have met without you matching us.   I am not as good with words as he is, but you should know how deeply grateful I am to you for introducing us. He is “perfect” for me in every way…our relationship and our love for each other has grown in these past twelve months in ways it never did in any other relationship.  You looked at the two of us and saw a “match” where I may not have … and am so thrilled I trusted you when you made this match. We are looking forward to sharing the rest of our lives together.  So for my best friend, confidant, lover and most wonderful soul mate… I thank you!  Camille

Hi Patti.  I just wanted to send you a note to say thank you.  Andy and I are doing very well and my daughter just adores him as well.  The three of us just went on a little trip together (I attached a pic).  We love each others company on so many levels.  He is an honest and mature man of integrity and treats my daughter and I with the utmost love, patience and respect.
Thank you again!
Sincerely, Nicole

Hi Patti
I was with Camille on the weekend and know you heard the news that I proposed and she accepted. I arranged a romantic dinner atop the Hilton Hotel in NF Ontario with a great view of the American and Canadian Falls coming together. I had to shoo the waiter away to have time to say “You are an amazing woman (and a few other things before) … Camille will you marry me?” Everything has been wonderful. Thank you.
There were a # of times I thought of calling the radio station on Thursday morning to say, “I’m a 58 year old widow who has been dating an incredibly wonderful 56 year old woman for the last 8 months and would like to propose to her. Do you think this is too soon?” But then I thought you might say something like, what is she saying to you and then you’ll know when you feel it is right and that for a couple in their 50s it is different than for a couple in their early 20s without life’s experiences, etc. How close was I to the answer you would have provided or do I have to wait until Thursday morning to find out?
A wedding sometime next year is our horizon and this give’s Camille the opportunity to achieve her degree which she has put so much work into.
Sign me, still smiling,
Alex H.

Hi Patti,
I hope this e-mail finds you and everyone at the BNI offices doing well.
I am continuing my exclusive relationship with Jean and could not be happier. We have had our typical ups and downs of any relationship and are continuing to grow together. Neither one of us are in any hurry for anything or are attached to the outcome. What I like best is that everything between us is genuine and authentic. I would not have it any other way.
Thank you again for all your help.

Sincerely,

-Bill S.

Thanks!

Hi Patti
I’m writing you to request to going on hold with Stephanie. We both agreed it would be great to just date each other. This past Friday Stephanie & her dog came to Niagara Falls to my house where I cooked her a nice dinner. Her dog got along great with my dog. All 4 of us went down to the Falls and walked around. I was being her tour guide. Later I took her in my classic Corvette to a car cruise to look around at other cars. Then both of us and the dogs went to Lewiston where we all had ice cream and walked around looking at the sites. We both enjoyed each others company very much. So again, I would like to be on hold with her ok?   Thank you very much for matching us together!
  John O.

Dear Patti, I’ve been on 3 dates with John O. I like him very much. Hes very kind and thoughtful. Very romantic. Ive been to his house. He seems to be head over heals about me too. I hope and pray that we can continue a healthy relationship. So this note is to let you know i want us to be exclusive. Thank you very much. Like a dream come true!   -Stephanie

Hi Patti,
It was nice talking with you yesterday. Per our conversation, Roger and myself are enjoying a very nice and wonderful relationship, and I will no longer be in need of BNI’s services. I truly appreciate all that you and your staff have done on my behalf to introduce me to such a wonderful person, whom I most likely would never have had the opportunity to meet without your help.

Thank you sincerely for all of your efforts!

It has been a pleasure working with you.

Very Truly Yours,

Karen D.

Good morning, Patti!

I would like to put my BNI service on hold, effective immediately.

James and I have been dating for 5 weeks… really having fun, enjoying each other’s company. It’s a comfortable relationship and we both agreed we’d like to get to know each other better. It’s been quite a while since I’ve felt this way about someone!

I will keep you posted!

Thanks so much, Mary Anne H.

Hi Patti

I would like to place my BNI service on hold starting with the end of December 2011 while Camille and I continue to focus on each other. I think we have something special going and out of respect and fairness to her (and be true to my monogamous nature), I feel it would be best not to see anyone else for the time being. If our situation changes I will certainly let you know.

Alex

Hi Patti,

I just wanted to wish you and everyone over at BNI a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a joyous holiday season.

Things continue to be going quite well between me and Jean. It takes time to get to know each other and both of us are in no hurry. I can tell you that I really just enjoy spending time with her. In fact on Christmas Eve we will be cooking a prime rib and baking cookies together. She also said something about wine, but I am not sure if it is for a cookie recipe or the cook LOL

Life is good. Thank you for your guidance, support, and friendship.

-Bill

Dear Buffalo Niagara Introductions:

I’ve found a certain solace in one of the matches you have arranged for me and wish not to be matched with anyone for a time to see where this may lead.

Thank You for all the support you and your staff have given me through my quest in finding happiness.

To whom this may concern,

I, John D. J., would like to be put on hold as right now, I am very happy with my last three dates and at this present time, I am still seeing all of them. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work. I haven’t been this happy or have had such a good time in I don’t know how long!

Thank you!
John J.

Dear Patti,

Please allow this email to confirm that I wish to put my account with BNI on hold. Matt and I had a discussion last night that “cleared the air” between us and we have agreed that we wish to date each other exclusively. We have a lot in common and are a good match. In fact, I thank you for making this match so quickly; I think it emphasizes that you are very good at what you do.

Very truly yours,
April O.

Patti,

I just want you to know that I have made a real connection with Jean.

After a great deal of soul searching I determined there were a few qualities I needed in a person and Jean matches up with me rather nicely. I would like to continue my relationship with her in a committed exclusive fashion.

I wanted to also thank you for pointing out to me in a gentle manner that I talk too much. What can I say? I worked in retail, I’m a school teacher, and I’m a musician so I talk a little bit. Jean found a way to quiet me down, but that is a story for another time.

Thanks again for everything.

-Bill

Patti;
I came across your book by accident while visiting family in North Carolina. I have had no luck finding that special someone since my divorce 7 years ago, and was intrigued by the title, so I bought it and read it on the plane ride home.

Some background. I grew up with a father who was psychologically and sometimes physically abusive. All my childhood, every misstep or achievement in which he felt I fell short was magnified a million times. Every argument with my mother was over my shortcomings. He constantly reminded me of what a failure I would be in life, and so after I graduated from college, I set off to prove him wrong, dedicating myself to being a success in my career. That said, I saw personal relationships as potential barriers to that success and tended to keep women with whom there was serious relationship potential at arm’s length. The relationship that led to my marriage even hit my by surprise. I had no idea I was being targeted by her, went along with it when I surprisingly found myself in bed with her, and probably married a good friend who in reality I did not love.

After my divorce, I tried online dating in many forms. My career forces me to move periodically, and so online dating allows me to meet people even though I don’t have much of a social network. But it hasn’t worked, leaving me both puzzled and frustrated.

When I read the first few chapters of your book, I realized how much I still carried around inside of me from my now long deceased father. I was actually fearful reading your insight into someone like me, realizing I had never completely defeated all those issues. It was very hard to keep reading.

But then I hit a critical part of ‘Getting Over Yourself.’ You asked something akin to, “Would you date yourself?” The answer is a resounding ‘yes!’ Not only am I intelligent, successful (thanks dad), passionate, very physically fit (not to mention tall), handsome I’m told with common sense and a fun sense of humor, but I’m also someone who is now so willing to share my heart and soul with a true partner. In short, I have a lot to offer, and your book made me realize that and help me take an important step in ‘getting over myself.’

And so I signed up for an area matchmaking service here in Iowa (where I’ve lived for about a year).

So thank you for all your advice. It really hit home! And I just wanted you to know what you wrote impacted me in a truly profound way.

Very truly yours,
Scott

Hi Patti!

I am writing to thank you for introducing me to Bob in May 2005. We date on and off at first before making it exclusive in Fall of 2005. The past six years, we have been through a lot together including grandchildren, loss of loved ones, and extensive traveling! We always tell everyone who introduced us, Patti Novak, and most people know who you are, but we make sure to inform the ones who don’t.
We just got engaged recently and wanted to let you know that our wedding plans will be for sometime in 2012 after Bob’s retirement!

Thanks again, Patti!
- Melody and Bob

June 2011- Katrina and Ben

I came in over a year ago looking for a chance to actually date and potentially find a good guy to start a serious relationship with. Through all of your efforts I was lucky enough to very quickly find Benjamin. I was his first match, he was my fifth and ever since our first date we could not be happier. Ben is a wonderful good man, and if it was not for you we would have never met. We are so blessed. In Ben I have found someone that I can be my true self around, have constant laugher, and share so many things with.

Dear Patti (and staff)

Call me a short-timer! My second referral and voila, you make your magic happen.

Yep, this is my official put me on hold letter after only 2 referrals. Sheri is the one she is intelligent, humorous, gorgeous, tender, intuitive, gentle, thoughtful and did I mention gorgeous? These are her bad traits, I don’t have enough space for the good ones!

I only wish I had made this decision to join a long time ago. It really works!

I will spread the word
Thank you so much
Gratefully,
David B.

Dear Patti,

I’m writing to let you know that Timothy J. and I have decided to put our accounts on hold as we are going to date exclusively. Please feel free to contact either one of us if you have any questions. Thank you so much for introducing us! We know it’s in our hands now but appreciate your assistance. Who knew it would have happened so fast – I’m impressed Patti!!!

Take care,
Tim and Ann

Patti,

Please place my account on hold starting 01/03/2011. I was matched with Bev and I can`t begin to thank you enough. Bev is the woman of my dreams.

Hi Patty,

I would like to put my membership on hold and date Dan J exclusively. I think he may be the love of my life.

Thank you, Bev G

from Lynn:

I spent many years deaf to the music of joy in my life. Not lonely but not loved……. Patti worked to try and open the door to a relationship in my life. When close to the end of a fruitless search, she introduced me to an intriguing man with whom I fell in love. He is challenging and smart and has a great, albeit off-beat, sense of humor that I enjoy! We listen to music together……..

from Joe:

I joined BNI in the first week of January, 2010. It didn’t take long for Patti Novak to find me the perfect partner. As a matter of fact, I met Lynn on February 6th. Patti introduced me to the most beautiful girl I have ever known; a kind, thoughtful, intelligent woman with a great sense of humor, and very pretty on top of all that. (A combination that is both rare and hard to beat). We just became engaged this past Christmas, and are currently making plans to get married.

Hello Patti,

I am writing to tell you that I read your book and gained some invaluable advice as a result. As someone who studies communication and has had personal trouble with dating I was especially appreciative of certain suggestions. Interestingly, they are aplicable on a much larger scale than just dating. Here are some of them:

1) The worst and harshest rejecters tend to be the biggest complainers about being harshly judged. 2) If you don’t love yourself, no one else will. 3) Look for the life lessons hiding in your experiences. 4) Do something kind for someone everyday. 5) Less is more in terms of less talking and more listening. 6) The need to impress is a red flag for insecurity. 7) By taking the pressure off your desperation to find love, you will change the negative energy you’ve been giving off that has kept people from wanting to connect with you. 8) Online dating dehumanizes dating and personal interaction.9) Without a sense of humor, the difficulties and complexity of life will overwhelm you. 10) Without respect, the fun you have together and the chemistry you feel with each other won’t matter. 11) Getting to know someone is supposed to happen slowly. 12) So much about finding love is balance between what we need to change and what we need to accept.

I look forward to suggesting your book to others who are having trouble in the dating sphere or simply suffer from a lack of confidence in themselves.

Thanks,
Ryan

Subject: Zo & Tony Hi Patti. Just a quick note of thank you (again!) for introducing Tony to me. We just celebrated our first year of dating. I am confident we would never have met if not for you. I was certainly tired of the dating options I had been trying, and I was definitely a skeptic when it came to matchmakers. You gave me hope, a healthy dose of reality, and helped me find my guy. Best wishes for much continued success, Zo.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Patti, Joining your service was the best decision I ever made! I was at a point where I felt I would be single for the rest of my life, complacent and happy with my independence, but I could not be any happier. The reason I signed on is due to the discretion of the member selection process. I was matched with someone who fit what I was looking for and have been hoping to meet! I don’t know about you, but I am shy until someone gets to know me. To be matched with one I was looking for is what I needed. I feel, as I am sure many others do, like what does it say about me.. to be joining a dating service, and is it really going to work? All I can say to all of the single people out there is that if you are tired of being alone or lonely and want someone to share your life with, Buffalo Niagara Intro will give you the chance for true happiness. I truly feel that without signing on as a member that I never would have met who I feel is my soul mate. I personally don’t feel you can put a dollar amount on the feeling I now have in my life. Thank you Patti and all involved in this process!

Sincerely,
A Happy BNI Member
