  • Mother, Son, Dating & a Dancing Queen at the Bus

    By Ilana Angel

    April 23, 2013 | 9:47 am

    When my son was thirteen he came to me and announced he was going to leave home for college and attend in another city.  He respectfully and adorably informed me I had four years to “find a man to replace him”.  If I was not in a relationship when he was off to college, he would go...

  • Saying Goodbye

    By Ilana Angel

    August 16, 2012 | 5:51 pm

    I left the home of my mother and sister yesterday and my heart is broken.  Saying goodbye to my mother is crushing and I can hardly breathe.  It is painful to live so far from her.  When my mother left Israel with her young family, my grandmother saw them off and my mother vividly...

  • Coming Home For a Good Cry

    By Ilana Angel

    August 14, 2012 | 7:50 am

    Yesterday I drove with my son from Toronto to Montreal.  We blasted RUSH and Justin Bieber and I will tell you that both artists sound just a little better in Canada.  We zoomed along the 401 and life was grand.  I cried for the first hour after we left Toronto having left my...

  • Relaxing is Exhausting

    By Ilana Angel

    I have been at the lake in Ontario for two days and have done nothing but eat, sleep and sit. I sit on the couch, sit on the porch, sit on the deck, and sit in the kitchen.  I eat, nap, watch TV, and talk to whoever is around. I have colored, beaded, and played with Barbie. I have...

  • My Mother, My Son, Myself—Happy Mother’s Day

    By Ilana Angel

    May 13, 2012 | 7:58 am

    I am sad to be away from my mother on Mother’s Day.  I’ve been thinking back and I don’t believe I have been with my mom on Mother’s Day for 20 years, which seems so wrong.  We talk of course, but it’s not the same thing.  Ever since I became a mother myself, we have had...

  • Important Dating Rule: Don’t Ask Trick Questions

    By Ilana Angel

    April 24, 2012 | 10:47 pm

    I understand that people lie.  It happens millions of times, every single day, by millions of people.  Lies can hurt, but do they hurt more or less than the truth?  There is a very clear line between a telling a lie and deceiving someone, so I wonder if I would ever choose a lie over...

  • The Bachelor is Back with a Whole Lot of Crazy

    By Ilana Angel

    January 3, 2012 | 11:15 am

    If Zach Braff and Justin Long had a baby, it would be Bachelor Ben.  He is a sweet man and I wish him well. He was blessed to be dumped by the teeth picking, bang touching Ashley.  I’m just unclear why nobody in his life that cares about him, does not make him get a haircut. I like...

  • A Teenager Drives, A Teenager Dies & a Mother Cries

    By Ilana Angel

    August 25, 2011 | 10:06 pm

    I spent Thursday afternoon with my son at the DMV.  It was exciting and scary, and yes, since you asked, I cried.  When he passed the test he went through the entire room and high fived everyone.  It was really fantastic and I was so proud of him.  Watching this child grow up is my...

  • Express Lines, Personal Space, Stupid People & Meeting Weird Men

    By Ilana Angel

    August 5, 2011 | 12:54 am

    Yesterday I went to the grocery store.  It was super hot out, had been a long day, my son left for a camping trip, I was sucked into stupid drama, had a headache, and wanted to get in and out of the store in a hurry.  I raced through the market on a mission, and ended up in the...

  • A Single Mom, Summer Vacation, Crying, Irrational Behavior & Being Single

    By Ilana Angel

    June 30, 2011 | 8:59 am

    I have been a single mother since my son was six months old.  My entire life is wrapped around this boy and my heart functions because of him.  I’m not kidding.  My decisions for myself are made with him in mind, and the choices I make put him and his needs first.  That’s just...

  • Sense and Sensitivity

    By Lori Gottlieb

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    If you spend much time looking at online dating profiles -- and admit it, you do -- you'll notice that the No. 1 characteristic men seem to be seeking in a potential match is "attractive." We women (attractive or not) are overwhelmingly in search of "sensitive." For us, Mr. Right is...

    By Rob Eshman

    December 5, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    Tashbih Sayyed told me he has cried three times in his adult life: once when his father died, once when his mother died and once when he had to sell his house.

    Sayyed was born in India in 1941 into a Shiite Muslim family. After the 1948 partition, his family, feeling persecuted by...

    Zimmer Kids Say

    Zimmer kids were asked this question:

    "If you could invite anyone to your house, whom would you invite and why?"

    Here are some of their answers:

    I would invite my friend Armando, because whenever I don't have lunch, he shares his food with me. So I will invite...
