Tired of looking for Miss or Mister Right over drinks or dinner? There is a new option. In the UK, a new dating site pairs off people working near each other, over lunch.

The guy who set up the site wants to export it to New York and Chicago, and says using the work-based approach to finding romance bridges the chasm between speed dating and normal dating.

Still to be resolved: Is it reasonable to expect a good-night kiss at 1 p.m. after a first date under the McDonald’s arches?  Here’s the story by Paul Majendie:  lunch300.jpg
