I spent my last five years in Chicago attempting to forge lasting (i.e.: ultimately marital) relationships with friends of friends, and I’m still totally alone.My friends have run out of single guys to introduce me to.IJL leads you to believe that they have the perfect matches for you, which they don't!They call and tell you about the new match: What they like to do, their looks, their activities, their travels, etc...Some are divorced or new to Reno and want to fast-forward their dating.It’s Just Lunch clients represent many different professions and career/life stages. One thing they have in common: they’re ready to meet someone special!
And don’t get me started on meeting a potential husband in a bar.
Bars in Chicago are populated by three types: (i) snotty, preppy North Shore guys that I would rather pick a fight with than attempt to flirt; (ii) guys from the Western suburbs who all work at the Board of Trade and are not interested in committed relationships; and (iii) college kids.
That left me with few options other than the depraved world of internet dating, right?
Some are divorced or new to Rochester, NY and want to fast-forward their dating.
The last of my still-single law school girlfriends showed up for dinner this past Friday with a 1.5-carat engagement ring.
