    “I’m one of IJL’s biggest fans. Dave and I were matched, met at L’Eiffel Bistrot and we’ve been seeing each other for about a year and so far, so good! Our story is very inspirational and I tell all my single friends there’s still hope. I’m so grateful to have Dave in my life. Thanks IJL Chicago!”
    –Lisa, Naperville, IL

    “Julie and I returned from our honeymoon last month, so this seems like the right time, if overdue, to thank you for your great work! I would have never met Julie without It’s Just Lunch…thank you!”
    –Mark, 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 Black Steer, 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 in Milwaukee and hope they get as much out of the experience as I did.”
    –Brian, Oak Park, 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 La Tasca, the restaurant of our first date! Without your organization, I would not have met this wonderful man. Thank you!”
    –Jennifer, 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

    “We can never thank IJL Chicago enough for introducing us. We have a wonderful life as a married couple. By the way, Baby #1 will be joining us in a few short months. Another blessing we owe to IJL. Thanks again!”
    –Angela, Oak Park, IL
