  • David and Sarah both agree their paths would have never crossed without IJL. Sarah was recently divorced with three teenage kids and had no single friends to network with, David had been divorced for eight years with two kids off at college and ready to get back out there and meet someone special…that special person was Sarah. After their first date at Ciao Bella, Sarah said that David was really cute and had a lot of interesting things to talk about. She thought he was really engaging and asked great questions throughout their date. David said that Sarah had “some kind of magic that got me going”. He thought she was so pretty and he asked her out for their 2nd date to go dancing at the Dakota Jazz Club. After 6 months of dating, Sarah knew David was “the one” when he supported her through a difficult time. We asked them what their favorite part of dating through It’s Just Lunch was and they both loved how easy it was and they enjoyed the pre-screening and meeting people with attributes that they were attracted too.”
    –David & Sarah, Married 2011

    Dating through It’s Just Lunch was great! It was such an easy way to date and the staff was always friendly and professional. One of the best parts of dating through It’s Just Lunch was talking with your matchmaker after each date and discussing what went well and what they can focus on moving forward. We felt like they really listened and cared about our success. We can say with confidence that we would never have met without IJL. Thank you!” –Ann & Steve, Married 2008

    “I ultimately decided to join IJL because I wanted to make sure the dates I met would be at the highest caliber. I also didn’t have a lot of time to date, so I wanted to work with the professionals at It’s Just Lunch to take care of all the details for me. There is not a chance in the world that Mitra and I would have met without IJL – thank you!”
    –Rick & Mitra, Engaged 2014

    “Our first date was just so great that we decided to get together the next night. And the night after that! And the night after that…it was clear after the first week of dating that we had something really special. Our favorite part of dating through IJL (besides finding each other) was the way IJL really paid attention to the details that make a couple compatible. They took an interest in us personally and what mattered to us. After the initial interview we really felt our matchmakers knew us and were personally invested in our success.” –Jon & Joani, Married 2010
