The world’s #1 personalized matchmaking service. Our professional
matchmakers provide an enjoyable alternative to apps and online dating.
It’s personal. It’s private. It’s convenient. It’s real.

It's Just Lunch is celebrating over 30 years in the dating business, with thousands of professional singles. We've created a service where everyone feels comfortable with the process of meeting a new person. The company was born in 1991 in Chicago and now has locations from New York to Singapore -.and in between.

After Founder Andrea McGinty's engagement was called off (and found herself suddenly single!), she began the tedious search to meet "normal", well-educated professionals. Her friends sent her out on blind dates, she tried personal ads, contemplated the internet and dating services, but she wasn't comfortable with any of these options. The ideal date, she decided, was a lunch date or a drink after work. A fun, laid back, stress-free way to meet!

It's time to give yourself permission to build your days around what's important to you! You're in Control!
