(Debbie has since told me she does not use high pressure sales tactics, and I believe her.
Still doubtful, I decided what do I have to lose and I might as well try it.
The team at It's Just Lunch spent a lot of time talking with me to get to know me and build my profile.
All you have to do is show up and enjoy meeting someone new. Pros:- Was impressed with the organization as a whole to match someone up with another person's QUALITIES.
It's Just Lunch was founded in 1991 and has been helping professional singles around the world find meaningful relationships ever since. That IS a bit rare.- I really think they DID match me up with what I was looking for in someone.
(I knew this was going to be an expensive program, and it is, but it would be beneficial to have at least SOMETHING listed on the website, ie how much coaching sessions are.)*Areas for improvement (true for any organization) - Short version for me is I started off working with matchmakers in a local 'field office'.
A few months ago I was switched to a national-level matchmaker in a completely different part of the country (Debbie, see below).
Longer version (spoilers) - Some of those field offices tried roping me into 'high pressure sales tactics' with higher-paid offers over the phone, saying "I need this right now." - I accepted the first offer, and I'm still glad I did.
- A year later, I had someone try to get me to agree to a higher offer, and I had only 30 mins to agree to it.
Would recommend telling them you'll need a few days to think about it and I would stick to that, no matter how upset or demanding they are haha. *About Debbie - She is a very determined, strong-willed, straightforward and even indifferent person. I was perhaps skeptical at first, mainly because I had no idea I was being transferred to her, but my experiences with her in the past few months have been nothing but positive!
Very professional, very assertive, very energetic & enthusiastic. Felt like I had Kevin O'Leary from Shark Tank working for me haha.- I liked that line "you are responsible for what you write" hahaha.
