Dear IJL Matchmakers,

How can we even begin to thank you for giving us the greatest gift of our lives – each other.

On January 11th, 2012, we had the amazing good fortune of taking part in an IJL match that would forever change our lives. For one of us, it was early in the IJL process; for the other, it was right at the six month point. But none of that mattered. All that mattered was that on that one night in Georgetown, the two of us had the special opportunity to come together and meet – something that never would have occurred had we not each made the independent decision to give IJL a try to help us in our search for love.

We cannot imagine that the IJL matchmakers who paired us together fully realized how completely meant to be we were, how amazingly and incredibly compatible we would be, how much intense chemistry there would be between us, and that we would each find our soul mate that night. But somehow, someway, someone at IJL decided that we would be a good match for one another and that we should meet, and for that we are both eternally grateful.

So, to anyone who is on the fence and thinks dating services are forced and contrived, a waste of time, or full of people not worthy of meeting, we say that they could not be more wrong. We have found in one another a best friend, a partner for our shared hobbies and life adventures, and the love of our lives. And without IJL, we are certain that our paths unfortunately would not have crossed, and we would not have had the amazing opportunity to experience the love and happiness that we now feel daily and forever.

We want to extend a special thanks to Tabitha, Ashley, and all of the other women who encouraged us throughout the IJL process, facilitated our meeting, and made joining IJL the best decision of our lives.

Forever grateful,
Greg and Maura

“I had been trying to meet women at bars and other hang outs, but I wasn’t able to find the kind of women I wanted to be with. IJL gave me the opportunity to meet women that match my profile and that I already had similar interests to talk to them about. It was the perfect combination.-Bob
“IJL made dating fun and easy by setting me up with quality individuals that shared similar interests as I did. I never imagined that I would find the perfect guy for me.”-Rosarae

I, like everyone else, had spent time at the local bars and clubs looking for “her” with little to no success. But who could help? It was on a flight home from a sales meeting when I saw an ad for “It’s Just Lunch” in a magazine. I took immediate action the second I got home. I signed up. It did not take me very long to find what I had been missing. From the beginning, things were different. Our conversations were more meaningful, our time spent together was fun, and our connection was stronger than I had ever experienced. Our relationship is strong and healthy, and we are looking forward to our journey yet to come.
