1. Your workaholic co-worker
Reason: This person must be saved.
Consider this a rescue mission. Be persistent, and patient, as this may be hard: this type of person can’t remember the last time they actually ate lunch.
2. Your office crush
Reason: Their smile makes you happy.
Stop hesitating and invite them to lunch! The chance of getting a “yes” is pretty high — who doesn’t like great food at nice restaurants?
3. Your boss
Reason: You have a plan…
9 out of 10 times they will shut you down, they do run the show after all. Oh well, at least they accepted your friend request.
4. Your friend who works nearby
Reason: There are many alternatives to cocktails and bars.
You can hang out and joke around while eating great food at local restaurants. Having lunch together will make you even BFF-er.
5. Everyone on your team
Reason: Lunch is where you bond best.
Start a new tradition with your team — leaving the office for lunch. Soon you will all understand how sharing a meal is not just fun, but also good for business.
Lunch is better when it’s shared with friends!
