“ If you are new to the dating scene, I highly recommend It’s Just Lunch (“IJL”). They offer safe, private, and personalized matchmaking. They go beyond to help you pinpoint what you are looking for in a long-term relationship and how to put yourself out there without limiting your beliefs. If you are a busy professional as I am this company is for you. They take all the work out of it you just show up. What is nice is that the dates are set up in a safe public location worry free especially, for women. Not all matchmaking companies are the same. This company matches successful, fun, and outgoing professionals looking to meet other successful professionals. In today’s busy world companies like IJL will provide quality service, listen to your wants, and give you that little nudge, to put yourself out there at the very least just try ”

“ I had a wonderful experience with IJL. It is expensive but the people are hard-working and very pleasant so it makes it worth it. Especially if you are an older single out in the burbs! I do not hesitate to recommend and am proud to say I was their client. ”

“ I’ve been with IJL Chicago for about two months. Their services has always been professional, kind, and encouraging. I’ve had plenty of high quality matches and been having a great time. One of the best features is how they take care of all the logistics, you just get to show up and have fun. If you are thinking about making the investment, I would highly suggest it. ”

“ I am very impressed with the quality of the people I have met over the past few weeks. My only complaint is that I don't have time to go on all the dates my match maker wants to arrange....a wonderful problem to have. Very glad that I joined! ”

“ I've only recently joined IJL, but I've had a good experience so far. They really try to get to know you and what you are looking for during the intake process, and they iterate based on the feedback you give them after every date. It's a great service for busy professionals or anyone who is tired of online dating. You get to meet high quality people that have compatible interests and personality traits. Rebecca has been very helpful thus far and has made the whole process super simple and enjoyable. ”

“ I was initially hesitant to contact IJL, I'm glad I decided to reach out anyway though. IJL certainly isn't perfect - after all, they aren't mind readers; but they do listen to the feedback you give them and try to find a good match rather than just fulfilling their contractual obligation to match you with X number of people (like many other similar services end up doing). Rebecca has been great and has found some good people for me to meet. As long as you keep an open mind and aren't too picky (which is pretty much how dating works these days anyway), IJL will be a good experience. Overall, for the price, I'm getting pretty much exactly what I would expect, and I've been happy with that. ”

I've been using ITJ for a few months now and can't recommend them enough! Great dates, an easy and relaxed structure, and an engaging staff; I feel well taken care of.

“ Its Just-Lunch (IJL) has been a phenomenal dating experience for me. I have met not only highly attractive but very educated, engaging, and culturally sophisticated women. Ive enjoyed so many positive experiences and in the process have learned more about myself. My point person at IJL, ******* has been very sensitive to my particular needs and my availability particularly since I travel a lot. ****** is always available to connect and always gets back to me in a timely manner whether by phone call, text, or email. Thank you, ****** ”

“ I would highly recommend IJL to help you find your mate. My “wing Women” Naomi was all I could ask for in matchmaking world. Very professional and always making me feel important. IJL makes dating easy and fun - they make all of the arrangements and choices for you - what not to love about that! Currently after 4 months of being with IJL I am excited to put my membership on hold - Yes I have found my MATCH! Thank you IJL! Thank you Naomi! ”
