  • Dating 101:  Sexual Advances, Ex Pics & Online Profiles

    By Ilana Angel

    September 19, 2013 | 9:44 am

    I am not dating online as much as I am spending a few minutes each day writing men that I would never go out with, to tell them I appreciate their interest, but we are not a match.  I wish them good luck with their search and while it is disheartening, I write back to all who...

  • The Magical No Bake Sugar Detox Treat

    By Arielle Adelman

    May 10, 2013 | 8:06 am

    I have a sweet tooth that conflicts with my ideology around “everything in moderation.” One bite of a chocolate chip cookie, or cupcake and my mind takes me to a dark and sugar coated place where I must consume every dessert possible so that there is nothing left for me to possibly...

  • Is Sex the New Fairytale?

    By Ilana Angel

    October 7, 2012 | 1:10 pm

    Sex changes for women as we get older.  We go from no experience and thinking all sex is good, to having enough experiences to be able to tell the difference between good and bad sex.  We want meaningful sex, but discover that not only does meaningful not necessarily mean good,...

  • Dating and Divorce

    By Ilana Angel

    June 18, 2012 | 11:31 pm

    I have been divorced for 16 years and in that time I have had two relationships I thought would last forever.  One was an actual engagement that ended with my heart broken, and one was with a total douchelord who ripped young.  He was my priority, I was building a career, and every...

  • Fear, Hope & The Pursuit of Love

    By Ilana Angel

    June 4, 2012 | 6:17 pm

    My heart has been broken many times.  There are different levels of heartache of course, but pain is pain and it all hurts the same.  When my dad died my heart broke in a way I thought I would never recover from, but now it is the part of my broken heart that I pray will never mend. ...

    I like to set up my friends.  By friends of course I mean I will set up anyone.  I come across a lot of single people during my daily travels and if someone is open to a fix up, I’m all over it.  I will add them to my running list of possible set ups and hope I make a match.   I...

  • Dating with Children: Hope & Expectations

    By Ilana Angel

    April 15, 2012 | 1:08 pm

    Dating is hard.  Dating with young children is harder.  Dating with older children in nerve wracking.  My son is 16 and now has opinions about who I date.  He wants me to be happy and is very protective of my heart.  He has seen it get broken and so he wants to make sure I date...

    The New Year marks my return to dating.  After a bit of a break I’m ready to jump back in.  By a break of course I mean one bad date too many put me over the edge.  I was either going to get another cat and never date, or walk away, regroup, and try again with a fresh...

  • What is Wrong with This Online Dating Profile?

    By Ilana Angel

    September 26, 2011 | 11:33 pm

    Yesterday I wrote that after a two week break, I was back to online dating. I was immediately contacted by men I would never date.  They were too young, or too old, or too toothy.  I don’t quite understand why I attract the men I do.  Many of them are not in my age range, or not...

    September 26, 2011 | 10:36 am

    I have not had a date in 2 weeks.  One crazy date too many put me over the edge, and I had to walk away from it all.  I simply could not handle going out on another nightmare.  I knew I hit the wall when a man contacted me online and his email made me sick.  Everything he wrote made...

    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...

    August 31, 2011 | 12:06 pm

    I wrote a while back about a man named Dave who wrote me 4 times on an online dating site with the same message.  It was so sad that it became funny, and after I wrote back to a couple of his emails telling him I appreciated the interest but did not feel we were a match, I gave up...

  • Grown-up Proms

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 11, 2011 | 10:07 am

    This Saturday night, I was at a fundraising dinner at the Beverly Hilton for my graduate school.  As a screenwriter who writes often about teenagers, you should trust me when I tell you just about every movie about teenagers culminates with a prom.  Prom is a big deal in high school...

  • Buying local produce adds spice to holiday dishes

    September 18, 2008 | 2:43 am

    As an avid farmers' market shopper, I welcome the holiday season by noting what's at the market, rather than by turning the page of my calendar. The High Holy Days are a time of endings and beginnings, and nowhere in my everyday life is this more apparent than when I visit my local...
  • A Single Problem

    By Rob Eshman

    December 8, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    I have a perfect record in setting up my friends on dates: I have struck out every single time. I am 0 for 20, maybe worse. Only one relationship that I tried to initiate made it past the first date. That one lasted for four years and ended in tears, anguish and confusion. The only...
