Its Just Lunch

The IJL Story


We believe the best way to get to know someone is face-to-face.

The premise of It’s Just Lunch is simple: a lunch date or drink after work is the ideal first date. It’s a no pressure, relaxed setting where you can actually talk face-to-face. Combine that with a hand-selected match by a professional matchmaker and you have improved your chances at dating success.


Meet some of our matchmaking team.

It’s Just Lunch matchmakers have matched hundreds of thousands of single professionals and arranged over 2 million first dates resulting in tens of thousands of marriages, engagements and long term relationships. It all begins with our DC matchmakers getting to know you and shooting for fireworks with every hand-selected match we make.

Best dating advice: Be yourself. Be confident in who you are and what you want. Smile. Nothing is more attractive than someone who is confident in their own skin, AND who is genuinely happy.

Your Theme Song: The one I am always humming to is “Dream a Little Dream of Me”. It reminds me of every great date I have ever been on. Not wanting the night to end!
