Jonathan and Elizabeth were both professional singles in their early 30’s when they joined It’s Just Lunch. They both have busy careers (Elizabeth is a Pharmacist and Jonathan works in Commercial Real Estate), had never been married, didn’t have children and were meeting people through friends. Both were nervous to join and had never tried anything like this before.
Elizabeth ultimately decided to join It’s Just Lunch because she was sick of meeting “stupid guys” and really wanted to meet someone of substance to share a long-term relationship with. Jonathan wasn’t meeting the right type of girls and was annoyed with his friends harassing him when he was going to meet “the one”.
Jonathan and Elizabeth met at the Chop House in early September 2010 and hit it off; both found each other easy to talk to, attractive and they exchanged information, both hopeful for a 2nd date. They continued to date, put their membership on hold for each other a month later and continued to explore their relationship together. While making gingerbread cookies, Jonathan proposed on Christmas Eve 2011, and they were married this past October.
Both Jonathan and Elizabeth agreed their paths would never cross without It's Just Lunch and advised giving a matchmaking dating service a try. When asked about their favorite part about dating through It's Just Lunch, Elizabeth noted, “I met a lot of different men and had a great dating experience! Also, It's Just Lunch made it very easy and comfortable.” Jonathan agreed, “I liked how easy It's Just Lunch made it for me, they do everything for you!”
Gina, their matchmaker was thrilled to receive the wedding photos with a note of thanks for introducing them. She noted, “Elizabeth was a catch! She was intelligent, fun-loving and a beautiful girl that had a lot to offer. She needed a gentleman who would respect her family, friends and appreciate that she was driven in her career. Jonathan was just the type of man she desired on so many levels. He was serious about the process and he was looking for a respectful, family-oriented and educated woman to grow old with.”
Elizabeth was Jonathan’s second date with It’s Just Lunch, and Gina remembers the excitement of receiving their feedback from that first date; it was the perfect match!
A big “thank you” to Jonathan and Elizabeth for sharing their story and pictures with us. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and love, it was a pleasure working with the both of you!
