  • Matchmaking Woes…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 31, 2012 | 8:03 pm

    I can’t remember exactly WHEN I started matchmaking, but it seems like I’ve been doing it forever…  In fact, I clearly remember trying to set people up back when I was in high school.  Most kids seemed open to it, however I was always asked the same question, even to this day: “Why? ...

  • Does JDate care about Jewish weddings?

    By Danielle Berrin

    June 20, 2012 | 1:21 pm

    JDate may be a little confused about its mission.

    The online dating Website, which touts itself as “the premier Jewish singles community online” had a PR firm dredge up wedding-season publicity by releasing a list of the Top Five Jewish Celebrity Weddings of the past year.

  • Waiting on Fruit & Love in Los Feliz

    By Elliot Steingart

    March 14, 2012 | 12:15 pm

    I feel like half my life is spent waiting for avocados to ripen and the other half is waiting for first dates to find a parking space in Los Feliz. I do prefer both my produce and women local. I shop at the local Albertsons, and search for females on Plentyoffish within a 5 mile...

  • Dating Sucks but LA Singles Rock

    By Ilana Angel

    February 13, 2012 | 2:41 am

    This past Saturday night, the Jewish Journal held its first singles event and I was honored to be a part of it.  By a part of it of course I mean this was my baby and I was thrilled with how the event turned out.  It was the forward thinking of Rob Eshman and David Suissa that...

  • Single for the Holidays vs. Desperate Online Dating

    By Ilana Angel

    December 8, 2011 | 12:44 am

    I love the holidays.  From the sound of kids laughing at Hanukkah, the smell of latkes, Christmas carols in the mall, gorgeous wrapping paper, Kleenex and diamond commercials that make me cry, to people being in the holiday spirit, it all makes me happy.  There is something magical...

  • Single, Happy, Hopeful & Strutting

    By Ilana Angel

    November 30, 2011 | 9:12 am

    I am in a dating slump and frankly have no real interest in getting out of it. I had a date last week that was completely uneventful, and when I came across someone online I thought looked interesting, it turned out he was a reader of my blog and while a fan, was not brave enough to...

  • Millennial Manners

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    November 16, 2011 | 2:32 pm

    Have you noticed that when you make plans with someone, you almost never really make plans with them?  You essentially make plans to talk with them on the phone at a certain time from a certain location.  This drives me crazy.  If we’re meeting at 6:30 and we’re both on time and...

  • Israelis + Cell Phones + Sushi = Impaling a Stranger with a Chopstick

    By Ilana Angel

    September 15, 2011 | 7:50 am

    Yesterday was busy.  I worked all day, picked up my son from school, and with Big Brother and America’s Got Talent having their season finales, and Survivor premiering, I had a long night of blogging for my reality blog Keeping it Real.  I decided we would go out for dinner so I...

  • My Search for Manny Pacquiao Leads Me to Ryan O’Neal?  Score!

    By Ilana Angel

    September 13, 2011 | 1:46 pm

    I love Manny Pacquiao.  I think he is an amazing human being and it is my new mission to meet him.  I want to shake his hand and tell him I love him.  By shaking his hand of course I mean I want to hug him.  I am quite certain that if this happens, or rather when this happens, I will...

  • Online Dating Hell: 5 Things Men Should Never Share on a First Date

    By Ilana Angel

    September 4, 2011 | 10:37 am

    I had a date this week with a very interesting man.  He was 45, never married, and Jewish. During our emails, and phone conversations, I found him to be charming and funny.  His laugh was very sweet and I felt comfortable with him.  We spoke a couple of times and made a date for...

  • We Have a New Winner! Worst Online Date Ever

    By Ilana Angel

    August 10, 2011 | 9:07 am

    I should have known better than to go on JDate again.  I have never had luck there, and after quitting for good, I joined for one month because Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York City told me I needed to give it another shot.  I love you Jill, but huge mistake.

  • 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...

  • My 4th of July Dinner Date

    By Ilana Angel

    July 4, 2011 | 11:54 pm

    I spent most of my weekend at home.  I cleaned, read, and spent time missing my son.  I decided to allow myself the weekend to be a little sad he was away for so long, with the intention of snapping out of it on Tuesday morning.  My friend Tammy decided wallowing until Tuesday was...

  • Did Bristol Palin Get Pregnant by “Rapist”  Levi Johnston?

    By Ilana Angel

    June 28, 2011 | 2:01 am

    Bristol Palin is a sweet girl who is loving the spotlight and sucking every last opportunity out of it. Her new memoir, “Not Afraid of Life”, is a book I am never going to read.  That said, based on what I heard about her book, she should be ashamed of herself for saying things...

  • Well, At Least She Called Me Skinny…

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 22, 2011 | 10:00 am

    So I was just about to post regarding the dinner I just had with my new inamorato and my parents, when I noticed Ilana Angel had already posted on me.  We met for lunch yesterday and I knew she would write about it but I’m still a bit shocked at how much my earlier pieces must have...

  • Is Matchmaking a Mitzvah and how many are supposed to accomplish in our lifetime?

    By Julia Bendis

    February 28, 2011 | 10:17 am

    Attending a wedding the other week of a couple that I introduced, made me think of the many Mitzvot that we are supposed to perform in our lifetime.  Having been somewhat of a Matchmaker since I was in high school, I had never really thought about it as a Mitzvah, or a good deed. ...

  • Getting It Right

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 8, 2011 | 6:29 pm

    I went on a great date recently.  I was someone’s guest for a fundraising gala and had a really fun time.  I get a lot of emails from people who say that I only concentrate on what men do wrong.  Much to my dismay, I realized perhaps this true but it is not a good representation of...

  • I can’t believe you haven’t seen it

    By Mrs. Shoshana F

    September 18, 2008 | 3:59 am

    I learned a lot about my husband when we went on our first date at CityWalk. While sitting at Howl at the Moon, he with his Smirnoff Ice, me with my Appletini, we made a list. It wasn’t a list about our hopes and dreams, about our future plans or even about questions we had for...

  • I am not a fixer-upper!

    By  Orit Arfa

    January 3, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Do I have a sign on my forehead that says, "Fix me up"? I hope not, because then I'd really have a hard time meeting guys.

    But every so often I get a phone call from a friend or relative, or my mom's friend or co-worker, and even from people I meet on the street: "Orit, I want to...

  • Of bad dates and good intentions

    By Rabbi Idit Jacques

    September 27, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    I went on what was arguably the worst date ever. Thank God, it was neither tragic nor violent, but in the category of terribly disappointing, it was the worst.

    It is a long story that involves visuals, pauses for the shock to sink in, and words that cause me to cringe inside even...

  • 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...

  • Déja Date

    By Amy Klein

    May 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    They say that familiarity breeds contempt, but I'm thinking that when you meet so many strangers in so short a time, familiarity might just breed comfort. You see a guy's picture 20 times, you begin to feel you know him. Maybe the first time he wrote to you, you weren't sure about...

  • Singles - Imperfect One and Only

    By Annie Korzen

    February 9, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Sometimes, just for fun, I look at the singles ads. I play a game of wondering which one I would respond to. The answer is a resounding zero. That's because they all sound too perfect, which makes me think they're lying.

    When a man describes himself as "Looking for someone who can...

  • Unhappy New Year!

    By Mark Miller

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    OK, I'll be absolutely honest -- I spent this past New Year's Eve alone. Sure, I could have salvaged the situation with a round of frantic last-minute calling, but I never got around to it because I had to go and get into a fight. Fortunately, I was the only one who got hurt. You...

  • Our Date With Drew’s Date

    By Amy Klein

    August 11, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    There are plenty of guys with crushes on Drew Barrymore, the actress who began as a child ingénue at age 6 in "E.T." and who captivates as an adult in sexier roles like her turn as one of "Charlie's Angels."

    There are also plenty of guys who are trying to make it in Hollywood,...

  • Thanks, but No Thanks

    By Mark Miller

    June 16, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    As far as I know, there are no such things as federal laws pertaining to dating. Oh, sure, there was that book "The Rules," a few years back, but those weren't federal laws; those were simply man-made, or rather, woman-made rules or suggestions. As to why there are no federal laws...

  • A Numbers Game

    By Dan Jacobs

    December 30, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    A few months ago, I scribbled out a Web site, bought a camera, hired a director, raised $42,000 and embarked on a journey across

    the United States.

    "I'm looking for true love," I told my father, "even if she's husking corn in Iowa."

    In three weeks on the road, I dated a radio...

    How Do You Decide Whom to Marry?

  • Set, Spike, Kiss

    By Carin Davis

    October 14, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    I'll never play the violin in high heels again.

    OK, I'll be back in sticks in six weeks, and I never played the fiddle. But I did play an important game of volleyball.

    Every Sunday, my peeps and I play co-ed pickup volleyball on Venice Beach. New catch Austin is always up for a...

  • The Safe Unsafe

    By Adam Gilad

    May 20, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    You date. You go to dinners. The beach. A friend's showcase. You retell your charming story until you hate every polished detail.

    You laugh, you listen, you communicate varying measures of maturity and audacity. You venture forward as sincerely as caution allows and then one day,...
