  • Love: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

    By Ilana Angel

    March 5, 2013 | 7:43 am

    Love is a great thing and I am blessed to have it in my life in many different forms.  I love my son, parents, sisters, brother, nieces, nephews, and friends.  I love them and am loved in returned which is special and something I do not take for granted.  I have been thinking a lot...

  • Living a Life While Watching a Life

    By Ilana Angel

    February 26, 2013 | 7:49 am

    Do you ever take stock of your life?  I don’t really look at my life in terms of an arc of time, but I am aware of how fortunate I am and the blessing I have been given.  I am also aware of my struggles and how certain aspects of my life are difficult.  It is that awareness that...

  • Valentine’s Day, Teenagers, Co-Parenting & a New Sheriff

    By Ilana Angel

    February 19, 2013 | 10:51 am

    I had a lovely Valentine’s Day.  The Englishman and I spent the evening with the kids and had a wonderful dinner.  I got the most wonderful cards, flowers, chocolate, and gifts.  I love Valentine’s Day and to share it with the people I love was very special.  I know it is full of...

  • Prince Charming is Taking Me To England!

    By Ilana Angel

    October 14, 2012 | 9:08 pm

    After 7 months of dating, and a slow and steady stroll to love, the Englishman is taking my son and me to England to meet his family for two weeks in December.  By slow and steady, of course I mean that I have loved him since our first date, but it took me months to allow myself to...

  • 18 days and 22 years

    By Ilana Angel

    July 26, 2012 | 2:52 pm

    My son has gone back east with his best friend for three weeks.  It is the third year he has made the trip and he truly loves it.  They hang out at the lake, play tennis, go hiking, see movies, and have a classic all American summer experience.  Today marks 18 days until I see him.

  • Guershon M.

    June 6, 2012 | 2:04 pm

    The most embarrassing aspect of Guershon’s life is that he’s 34 and lives with his mom, so of course I’ll lead with that. “I started film school and I [moved in with my mom], and the hardest thing for me was it seemed like [my friends] had all their s—- together. It was...

  • My Single Peeps: Isaac S.

    May 15, 2012 | 8:58 pm

    When Isaac sits down to speak with me, I see the rugged beard with a shot of gray around the chin, the athletic build and the tight-fitting Israeli-style clothes, and I think, “I know exactly who this guy is.” He has an Israeli accent, so when he first says to me, “In Israel I...

  • A Nightmare 16 Years In The Making

    By Ilana Angel

    April 9, 2012 | 10:48 pm

    It has been a very interesting weekend.  By interesting of course I mean stressful, sad, and frightening.  It was Passover, which was wonderful.  It was my birthday, which was wonderful.  It was also the first time my son took the car out on his own, which was wonderful for him, but...

  • The Last Taboo: The Lord Shall Preserve Thee From All Evil

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 13, 2012 | 9:15 am

    My boyfriend and I were in a car accident this weekend.  We both are fine.  Nothing more than a few bruises on us.  The cars were not so lucky, though of course we know it could have been much worse.  But when the storm had passed, the incident afforded me an unexpected peak into an...

  • Is It All Hopeless?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    January 21, 2012 | 2:03 am

    My boyfriend and I had a fight tonight.  Not a terrible one but bad enough that I’m back at my apartment alone and intermittently crying.  I’m not entirely sure what happened or why but we were sort of off all night.  Then, things were said and now looking back, perhaps I was...

  • The Way to a Man’s Heart is Through His Stomach

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    October 28, 2011 | 3:18 pm

    I showed up this morning at my boyfriend’s apartment at 6 am with three dozen pumpkin cookies.  Perhaps I’m not the most naturally domestic girl I know, but every so often I feel inspired.  He’s had to put up with a lot from me lately and I wanted to do something nice and surprising...

  • Making Amends to My Boyfriend on Yom Kippur

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    October 7, 2011 | 3:00 pm

    Guest blogger and my dear sister, Jenna Kagel has written a letter to her boyfriend to make amends for Yom Kippur.  She has allowed me to repost it here.

    Miguel,

    I’m sorry that every time you watch a boxing match on TV, I feign a terrible headache that necessitates your assistance....

  • A Non-Date With My Canadian Non-Boyfriend

    By Ilana Angel

    July 28, 2011 | 2:57 am

    I had a date last night with tall, handsome, funny Canadian.  He also happens to be the boyfriend of my good girlfriend.  I adore my friend, and I love her boyfriend so much, she lent him out and we went on a date.  He is fabulous and we had a wonderful time.

    The back-story is about...

  • Breaking All the Rules

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 26, 2011 | 1:50 pm

    Today, I’ve given my blog entry over to a very special guest, my sister Jenna Kagel.  I thought you might enjoy hearing from someone completely out of the scene and in a happy relationship for a change.


    I remember being in college and hearing a story of a family friend who had...

  • Letting Yourself Go

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 17, 2011 | 12:59 pm

    My sister has been in a relationship for two years now and she’s very proud of the fact that she’s let herself go.  Not in the traditional sense of becoming unattractive.  She’s a gorgeous young twenty something who has probably never weighed more than a hundred pounds and has...

  • I’ll try it!

    By Caroline Cobrin

    October 5, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    If you tell anyone I know that I was awake at 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning, on purpose, they wouldn't believe you. If you added that I didn't immediately turn over and go back to sleep, they would start laughing. If you told them that the reason I was awake at the crack of dawn on a...
  • My True Best Feature—My Crazy Charm?

    By Carin Davis

    August 31, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    My friend Nanea is breaking up with singlehood, and my girls and I are ready to help. Best friends since UCLA, we throw Nanea a wild bachelorette party weekend in NYC.

    My group takes a bite out of the big apple. We shop uptown, dine downtown, theater on Broadway, picnic in Central...

  • The Candy Man Can

    By Teresa Strasser

    August 24, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    If you've ever tried to split a Big Hunk candy bar -- the kind made out of brittle white nougat and peanuts -- then you understand a typical breakup. It's usually not neat, like a Kit Kat, two for you, two for me, let's go our separate ways and we'll run into each other in three...

  • No Deposit, No Return

    By Debra L. Eckerling

    August 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Dating is difficult enough without asking for a guarantee. Imagine my surprise when the last guy I went out with wanted just that.

    I had met "Bob" at a Jewish networking event. We took a nice walk afterward, talked about what we were and weren't looking for in a relationship,...

  • My Superpower: Datedar

    By Shoshana Lewin-Fischer

    July 27, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Some folks claim they have "gaydar" -- they can tell whether someone is gay.

    Some folks claim they have "Jewdar" -- they can tell whether someone is Jewish.

    I've got "datedar" -- I can tell if a couple is on a first date.

    It's kind of a cool power ... I mean none of the...

  • ‘Talk to You Soon’

    By Dara Lehon

    July 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    For the record, not all men are creeps. Sure, some creep along to get things done, but most don't mean harm, and there are some really, truly terrific guys out there.

    And get this: Not all men (particularly those who dump you) are idiots. In fact, they know exactly what they're...

  • Singles - Painted Clowns

    By Teresa Strasser

    June 29, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    As part of our stroll down memory lane, it seemed fitting to reprint a column by one of our most popular writers. Teresa Strasser, now a regular on prime-time television and morning radio, generated stacks of reader mail with pieces such as this one.

    I'm drinking at a bar called the...

  • Singles - Want, Not Want

    By Amy Klein

    May 25, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Remember the guy I wanted to want me?

    Guess what?

    He wants me.

    Sort of.

    Get this: The other day I got a phone call from him. Remember him? I hardly do, understandably so, because it's been about three months since we had a date. A good date, as far as dates go. I mean, the...

  • The Aftermath

    By Caroline Cobrin

    April 27, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    "Are you sure we won't scare him off?" my aunt asked when I called to formally ask whether my boyfriend could come to our crazy seder.

    That question echoed through my head as I introduced him to the gaggle of cousins and family members who greeted us at the door. Most of them had...

  • He’s my ...

    By Teresa Strasser

    April 7, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    The term "boyfriend" is like the knee joint on someone who is morbidly obese. It is being asked to do way more than it was designed

    to do. It is buckling under the pressure. Where it once could do the job, it is now carrying too much weight.

    Example: My grandma had a companion...

  • Missing: My Mojo

    By Teresa Strasser

    March 18, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I can't explain it any better than this. I think I've lost my mojo. That phrase has been going through my head for months now. Lost my mojo.

    How do you know you've lost your mojo? You get a couple clues.

    I'm eating dinner alone at a restaurant when an attractive older man...

  • The Four Menches

    By Carin Davis

    March 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    The haggadah speaks of the Four Sons: the wise, the wicked, the simple and the one who doesn't know how to ask. And on a good night in Hollywood, you can pick up all four. The first Saturday in March is a girls' night out (with the understanding we intend to pull men). Elizabeth,...

  • Get a Life

    By Teresa Strasser

    March 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Girl meets boy. Girl falls in love with boy. Girl stops returning her friend's phone calls. Girl's world narrows. Girl loses boy. Girl starts calling her friends again. Girl meets another boy.

    A pattern emerges.

    It's obvious, really. I just never noticed it until my boyfriend gave me...

  • Plush Reminders

    By Teresa Strasser

    February 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Bunny. Das-tardly Bunny. Stupid stuffed, fluffy gift from his ex-girlfriend. Bunny, you've enjoyed life on his pillow for awhile, but now you must die. Bunny must die.

    This is what I thought as I tossed Bunny out the window of his bedroom last week. You see, there's something...

  • Female Issues

    By Teresa Strasser

    September 30, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    It started out innocently enough. Some burning. Uncomfortable urination. A couple of weeks pass, and I'm starting to feel like my bladder is on fire and all the cranberry juice in Vons isn't going to put out the flames.

    I wake up in the middle of the night, sobbing and with little...
