LA is present in several countries in Asia; since I’m in Singapore, I’ll be enrolling at their Singapore branch (also their head office if I’m not wrong).

Because I think arranged dating and being proactive about meeting people (especially in a romantic context) are quite frowned upon in some places including Singapore, I decided to openly blog about my experience to let everyone know that there’s nothing negative or embarrassing about going on arranged dates. Case in point: I had already intended to join Lunch Actually and blog about my experience a few weeks back and briefly mentioned it to some people.

Incidentally, she and her husband Jamie (who is the co-founder of LA) knew about me and had been following PE even before I approached them, which I thought was really cool!

During my interview, I got to know more about LA and thought it seemed like a great avenue to meet compatible people.

Rather, I’ll focus on sharing the agency’s date arrangement process and my experience with it.

I seek your help to respect others’ privacy by not asking me about them, thank you!

I’ve already booked for a consultation with them later today (they offer free consultations) and will blog about how it goes later.

* Update, July 3, 2012: Lunch Actually kindly offered to sponsor my membership of a 5-date package, but rest assured that this review will remain entirely objective as with everything I write on PE.

My plan is to write about my experience with LA at the key stages of their service, from consultation to enrollment, to date arrangement, culminating to my final review of their service.

I’ll be writing this review in an authentic manner, like with all things on PE.

I also returned to update this review series with concluding thoughts.

If you’re here to learn more about Lunch Actually, this series details my experience going through the dates.

Cliff notes: After enrolling at Lunch Actually (with my date package sponsored by them), I went on 4 dates over a 10-month period.
