“Meeting quality people who possess similar attributes and interests can prove to be discouraging. It’s Just Lunch Chicago removes the daunting task of meeting people and provides the opportunity to be introduced to pre-screened, pre-selected, high-caliber professionals. My social time is now spent how I want to spend it instead of continuing the search.”
–Kara, Chicago, IL

“I’m extremely happy with your service, you guys have done a fantastic job. I’m seeing someone you introduced me to, so thank you!”
–Steve, Chicago, IL

“I went on my first IJL date last night…I’m so impressed! We have a lot in common and the conversation never lulled. I already received a “thank you” email from him this morning. I’m looking forward to seeing him again and going on more dates with IJL, thank you!”
–Amanda, Chicago, IL

“I ultimately decided to join It’s Just Lunch Chicago because I was having difficulty meeting quality women, I had a busy schedule and I didn’t like dating online. I didn’t have to go home each night and sift through emails from matches that my computer was just spitting out at me. IJL called me with the matches they had selected for me, scheduled the date and picked the restaurant that was convenient on my commute home for a drink after work.”
–Jake, Naperville, IL

“IJL made dating easy for me. The Chicago staff was very energetic, courteous and helpful. They listened to what I was looking for and presented me opportunities to meet men that met my criteria. The end result for me is that I am getting married to one of the gentlemen that I met through IJL! He proposed at Eno, the restaurant of our first date! Without your organization, I would not have met this wonderful man. Thank you!”
–Jennifer, Chicago, IL

“Thank you It’s Just Lunch Chicago! I have found someone great and see it quickly becoming a lasting relationship. We just celebrated our 6 month anniversary at Morton’s, the restaurant of our first date! Above all, your service helped me to feel more confident dating and gave me something to look forward to each week. I will be recommending you to friends and hope they get as much out of the experience as I did.”
–Brian, Oak Park, IL

“Went through the initial process, which involved sharing some information with a coordinator, so she could understand my interests and personality. The process was painless, and the questions were designed to match me with women with comparable interests and personalities. I would say the IJL coordinator I worked with is very good at her job, with a knack for picking appropriate matches on many levels. Have enjoyed the experience so far and would recommend to friends.”
–Bill, Orland Park, IL

“I would recommend It’s Just Lunch to all my single friends. The company was good to me. I have been having a good time on my dates that you and the coordinators set up for me. This is my second year in as a client. Alexis as my coordinator does her job well. She explains my matches to me in fine details, calls me right away if there is a change in the date that she sets me up with, very polite and answers all my questions in full.” –Rocco, Elmwood, IL
