    Today I saw the most beautiful gay couple at the mall. They were both so attractive and happy looking, holding hands and not paying attention to anyone but each other.  It made me sigh and look forward to having it for myself one day.  (A relationship, not a gay boyfriend.)  It... read on

    On July 27th I blogged an entry called “Don’t break your Mamma’s heart” about a topic that is important to me, my son marrying a Jew.  Granted he’s only 13 and though I can let this one go for a while, I do think about it.

    Have you ever had a perfect date?  The kind where you feel sick to your stomach in anticipation of meeting him?  Where you buy a new outfit, get your hair blown out, mani and pedi, shave your legs and don’t eat for 3 days before the big night so you’ll look perfect?  The kind of... read on

    Let’s talk about my friend Laurel.  I focus a lot on the struggles of meeting men when you are over 40.  If you throw Laurel into the mix, then the trouble meeting men is not just limited to women over 40.  Laurel is 26 years old and if we lived in Alaska I could be her mother. ... read on

    The purpose of this blog is to share stories and experiences about what it’s like to date in Los Angeles.  People say it’s harder to date in LA but I personally think it’s hard to date in any city.  I’m not really buying the “It’s tougher in LA because everyone is jaded... read on

    “I want you to marry a nice Jewish girl.”  These are words that I tell my thirteen year old son on a regular basis.  He knows that if he decides to marry a girl that is not Jewish, I will of course love her but he will be required to pay me back every penny I paid for his private... read on
