  • Dating 101: Saying You’re Sorry

    By Ilana Angel

    November 3, 2013 | 8:55 am

    I think it is both unnatural and invigorating to date in middle age. I am 47 years old and truly surprised to still be dating. I’m not a good dater.  I am great in a relationship, but meeting new people, dating, and the time spent dating to see if there will be a relationship is...

  • Dating 101: Mug Shots & Convicted Felons

    By Ilana Angel

    September 13, 2013 | 7:13 am

    I received an email this week from a man online that I am pretty sure was using a mug shot as his profile picture.  The Internet is an amazing place and while the odds of finding love online are not good, it would appear that the chances of meeting a felon are great.  For a woman...

  • Dating 101: Sex & Golf

    By Ilana Angel

    August 22, 2013 | 12:45 pm

    Just when I think I have heard it all, I come across a man that reminds me there is nothing more horrific than dating.  I often wonder if these men are only found in Los Angeles.  Is LA the hardest city In the world to date?  I live here so of course I will say yes, but I’m...

  • Dating 101: Can Women ask Men Out?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 16, 2013 | 8:38 am

    I wrote a man on Match.com this week.  His profile was beautifully written, lacked the typical stench of online dating crap, and he was just the right amount of sarcastic and funny. He is handsome, smart, Jewish, and entertaining.  He wrote back and we ended up speaking on the...

  • Dating 101: I’m Jewish, Not Really

    By Ilana Angel

    June 23, 2013 | 1:55 pm

    For the love of God, I honestly do not know how much longer I can date.  It is required of course because I want to meet someone, but with each bad date I am one step closer to channeling my inner lesbian and dating women, or perhaps just getting a box of chocolate, a cat, and...

  • 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,...

  • Happiness Stinks

    By Ilana Angel

    October 2, 2012 | 6:26 pm

    Why is it that when you are single you cannot find a decent guy to date, but when you are in a relationship, men are not only everywhere, but they are interested in you?  I have been dating the Englishman for almost 7 months and I have never had so many men ask me out.  Very...

  • Birthdays, Dating & a Twitter Support Group

    By Ilana Angel

    April 3, 2012 | 10:38 pm

    This weekend will mark my 46th birthday.  I don’t feel 46, or look 46, but I will in fact be 46.  I can vividly remember when my mother turned 35 and I thought she was the oldest person in the world.  My mother is only 22 years older than I am.  I have dated men who were 22 years...

  • Did Online Dating Just Get Safer?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 21, 2012 | 10:52 pm

    Online dating kings Match.com, eharmony.com and Spark Network, which owns and operates JDate, have agreed to start screening for sex offenders, in addition to other “safety precautions”, in order to help their clients. Their goal is to help their consumers guard against sexual...

  • Why Do I Date Online?

    By Ilana Angel

    February 3, 2012 | 11:16 am

    I often get asked why I date online.  It’s a good question to which there is no answer.  Well there are answers of course, but they are all lies.  “It’s easy.”  No it’s not.  “It’s fun”. No it’s not.  “It can work”.  No it can’t. Online dating is the...

  • Dating Sucks Singles Event

    By Ilana Angel

    January 27, 2012 | 8:33 am

    For those of us who are searching for our beshert, we pray that every first date will be our last.  Being set up, dating online, or hitting the bars are all horrible, but not as bad as going to a singles event.

    Until now.

  • How to Not Get a 2nd Date

    By Ilana Angel

    January 24, 2012 | 2:47 pm

    I had a date over the weekend with a guy we’ll call “Dick”.  He wrote to me online, and after a couple of email exchanges we spoke on the phone and made a plan to meet for a drink.  He seemed like a nice enough man and I was looking forward to meeting him.  Not really my type...

  • 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...

  • Kissing Strangers

    By Ilana Angel

    December 1, 2011 | 12:47 am

    Before we tackle this subject I think we need to establish how important kissing is.  For me, I can fall for a man based on just one kiss.  Sadly I can also dump a man based on just one kiss.  I believe you can tell a lot about a man by how he kisses.  Kissing is a powerful thing and...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • My Hiatus from Online Dating Sadly, and Thankfully, Comes to an End

    By Ilana Angel

    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...

  • Sept. 18 – 24 is National Unmarried & Single Americans Week

    By Ilana Angel

    September 18, 2011 | 6:25 pm

    Did you know that this week even existed?  According to CelebrateLove.Com, National Unmarried & Single Americans Week was started in Ohio in 1980. The website states that there are about 82 million single and unmarried people in the United States.  Really?  They also say that there...

  • 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...

  • My Cynical & Jaded Online Dating Butt Just Got Kicked by a Kid

    By Ilana Angel

    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...

  • Can Match.com save you from dating a sex offender?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 24, 2011 | 10:28 pm

    Match.com has agreed that they will start screening their members to ensure they are not sex offenders.  While it is certainly a nice gesture, and one that will protect people, it is not going to make a tangible difference in how people date online.  At the end of the day, people...

  • Statistically, how many online female daters want to impale themselves?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 22, 2011 | 9:44 pm

    I have received an email from a man on an online dating site, 3 times.  Yes, the exact same email, for 3 straight days, from the same man.  It reads: You look and sound terrific. I would love to meet and talk with you on the phone. Take care Dave.  I have replied all 3 times with a...

  • 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.

    While...
