Love, Sex & God

My friends have often said I am obsessed with the romantic notion of love, and my big mistake is putting love as my number one requirement in a relationship.  I want love.  Sex is easy to... read on

    Every single day, including this Memorial Day, someone will die or be injured while serving this country on our behalf.  It is our duty to remember that this weekend is about the troops, past and present, and not just about a BBQ or day off from work.  It’s important to take a... read on

    On Sunday night of last week, while making dinner, I burned my left forearm. I reached into the oven to pull out the shelf and retrieve dinner, and the shelf hit my arm.  It was an immediate jolt, but more shocking than painful.  It didn't look like anything and I figured it was a... read on

    My last three long-term relationships were all with men I met on JDate.  I only date Jewish men and so it makes sense that JDate would be my online dating site of choice.  By choice of course I mean it is a necessary evil in the day and age we live in.  JDate works if you are... read on

  • Dating 101 – The Coffee Date

    By Ilana Angel

    May 17, 2013 | 5:27 pm

    I had a coffee date yesterday that proved what I have always known: coffee dates don’t really work for me.  It is an unnatural meeting and feels more like a job interview.  I am too old, too intelligent, and frankly too cute, to play these dating games.  If someone is interested in... read on

  • Dating 101: Love is Blind

    The process of dating is really hard.  When you are going on a series of first dates, it is also exhausting.  It takes a lot of time to get ready, to engage in banter with a stranger, to convince yourself that you want to be there, and not at home in your pajamas with a glass of... read on
