It's Just Lunch San Francisco — Bad Product
I have tried this system in two states and have seen the same results in both. I feel that they put you out on dates just to get you out there, it's a numbers game. Going in, I thought that the interview process was going to be extensive, this is not the case. It's not like I am the only one saying these things, nearly all of my dates have expressed their disappointment with Just Lunch. They consistently set me up with people that I am not remotely attracted to. It's not fair to me and definitely not fair to the women I've been set up with. I am not a big fan of Match.com but at least there you get an idea of who you are looking at. Most people in the US need to have some sort of attraction to someone, especially if they are a stranger. Until they offer some sort of face book they will continue to have the same poor and inflated results. It's not just the attraction aspect, there were numerous dates where we had opposite interests. It's a shame the way this business is run. Their idea of listening to complaints is just pushing them further down the list.
Most of their clients are too quiet to speak up and write reviews like this one or on Yelp. I'm not the only one that also feels that someone is writing bogus positive reviews? I'm not saying all the reviews are bogus but I am saying it is strange how they come in bunches after a negative review has been posted. More importantly, go to Google and type in "It's Just Lunch Complaints". Look at all the issues and lawsuits that pop up. There are over 250, 000 entries???? That should raise some red flags, shouldn't it?
Dating is difficult no matter what you do or don't do. Can you find that special someone through Just Lunch? Yes, anything is possible. My advice is to NOT get your hopes up and make sure you hold them accountable to the age and geographic areas you specify. Also, bring in pics of the opposite sex that you are attracted to because their current system does not even account for that. I was a customer for well over a year and a half and I only went out with one girl more than once. She turned out to not believe in organized religion and that was an immediate deal breaker. I respect her beliefs and would never speak ill of them. She was a great person but obviously not a good fit for someone who does believe in organized religion. You would think that would be a pretty big factor when setting people up on dates.
Hopefully this review will help future and current Just Lunch members. I also hope that Just Lunch will take this into consideration and use the feedback to fix their current product. This conceptually is a great ideal but lacks the execution to give the desired results. Plus, don't be surprised if there are a few more (4 & 5 Star) reviews to bury my honest and accurate assessments of Just Lunch on Yelp.
I was right, all the negative reviews on Yelp mysteriously get pushed down to the bottom:)
