“ IJL is a great way to meet quality single professionals. I usually work with Maggie who is very professional and attentive to my questions and feedback on dates. IJL will arrange everything about the date. All you have to do is show up and meet your date. Even if it does not work out, IJL has plenty of other matches to meet. ”

“ Excellent program! The team provided me several matches which were positive experiences. Most importantly, I was introduced to a woman with whom I fell in love and to whom I recently proposed. We will be married later in 2024. I highly recommend IJL if you’re a busy professional and want an honest and easy matchmaking service. ”

“ As someone who was hesitant about hiring a dating service such as It's Just Lunch, I can assume anyone that this was the best decision when it came to being connected to a date whom I could be completely comfortable. Everyone at IJL is professional, wonderful to work with, and highly experienced. I am very happy with this service in just a few weeks. They have exceeded by expectations. Wonderful service. I could not recommend them more highly. ”

“ It's just lunch was great! I felt comfortable knowing my matchmaker vetted guys so I didn't have to worry about them not being who they said they were. They listened to what I was looking for and after several dates I matched with a guy I really like. We are about to go on our fourth date soon which is exciting! ”

“ Was getting tired with all the dating apps shenanigans, so one day I was listening to the radio and a IJL radio ad came on. I had heard them before, but I guess it was the right time, so I took the plunge and I'm glad I did. I can't thank Lindsey! and the rest of the IJL Team for all their hard work and dedication in helping me find me the right dates, and trust me, I'm a very picky dater. When they say they 'll listen to you, they really do. They appreciate your feedback which in turn helps them find you the right date. As most of you know, and you probably do because you're here reading the reviews, the dating world isn't what it used to be, but IJL makes it all the more easier because they truly care and want to find you that special person to share your life with. Are they perfect, no, no one company or person is, but they're pretty darn close. Good luck in your search for your special someone! ”

“ Lindsey is the true professional you rarely meet in the service industries. She is insightful and knows how to create a safe place where real conversations can occur. She brings the highest level of customer service to IJL. Her skills rival and crush the skills seen on the matchmaking shows on Netflix. I am happy to work with her on such an important journey in this time of my life. ”

“ I just joined IJL DC not even a month ago and have had a fantastic experience working with Camille and Maggie so far. They have already sent me on three dates since I signed up, and already have two more ready for me coming up very soon. The restaurants selected have been very high-calibre, as has been the quality of the matches - all passionate young professionals working in my area - and the conversation has flowed freely during the dates with solid chemistry. Jolene is providing me with helpful date-coaching in the backfield as well, so I'm confident I'll find someone for me by continuing to work with the DC office's team. ”

“ Match-making is an art, not a science. If you’re ready to re-enter the dating world and want to meet interesting people, I would encourage you to join IJL. Michelle, Maggie and Jolene have been wonderful to work with. They listen to my feedback and continue to "tweak" my dates. IJL does the work for you so if you're tired of vetting people on dating apps and want more hands-on attention, I would encourage you to use IJL. ”

“ I have been with IJL for a while and have enjoyed every date that Kim and Ana have sent me on. They are caring and understanding of what I am looking for in a match. Every match seems to get better. My guess it won’t be long till they find me my One. I highly recommend them. ”

“ I have been a member of IJL and they are an outstanding company to work with. The staff is easy to work with and always asks for my input on my preference. They take a lot of my conversations and come out with a match. This is way better than the dating apps you pay a monthly subscription for and they do all the work for you. All you have to do is show up at the location. How easy is that? Scheduling and meeting locations are completely set up by the IJL staff. Highly recommended. ”

“ I’ve only been with IJL for a couple of months so far and was initially skeptic of its matchmaking method since I've never done it before. However, Lindsey has been very reassuring. She promptly responds when I reach out, patiently listens to my questions, and in turn provides solid advice along with setting up great matches. I am super lucky to have matched with Lindsey as my IJL rep! ”

“ After investing a lot of time sorting through endless online dating profiles - having thousands of meaningless conversations with bots, cheaters and getting stood up and catfished, I decided to take a break from the online, computer generated algorithms and give IJL a try. It's been almost a month, and with three dates in, I'd say this experience has been great. I've met three professional, attractive, smart and interesting singles and went on second dates with all of them. The conversations were all open and very engaging, and all of my dates lasted for HOURS. The matchmakers at IJL set me up nicely, furthermore my dating coach and client advisor have been very helpful during this process.

I highly recommend this service and look forward to going on more dates in the future! ”
