    Ending relationships is a very hard thing to do.  When your marriage ends and you go through a divorce, it is simply crushing, and one of the most traumatic things someone can experience.  When you have kids, there is comfort in knowing that the relationship will carry on in some... read on

  • Dating 101: JDate

    By Ilana Angel

    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

  • Dating 101: Transitional Men & Heart vs. Brain

    By Ilana Angel

    May 9, 2013 | 4:10 pm

    I am not really a transitional kind of girl.  I hate the dating dance and at this stage of my life am able to make quick decisions in terms of the men I want to spend time with.  I have friends who swear by the "transitional man" method of getting over a love.  A man that will get... read on
