  • Crystal Balls and Guarantees

    By Ilana Angel

    I am blessed to be the mother to my fantastic child.  He is a wonderful human being.  Smart, funny, kind, compassionate, and one of the few people who can make me laugh out loud until my stomach hurts.  This young man has changed my life and will change the world one day. We have...

  • Waiting on Fruit & Love in Los Feliz

    By Elliot Steingart

    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...

    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.

  • Suddenly single

    By Heather Moss

    The last time I went out on a date was as a somewhat naive 22-year-old student. Of course that was 15 years ago, when "You've got mail" was something you heard from your mom. Now I'm facing the new realities of dating as a 37-year-old recently single mother of three.

    After 12 years...
  • What Men Want (To Say)

    By Mark Miller

    June 17, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    On a typical coffee date, because we're meeting for the first time, awkward conversation comes with the territory. Neither of us completely reveals what we're thinking or feeling. We're shy, holding back, concealing, putting on a good face, feeling the other person out.

    How much more...

  • Generation Ex

    By J.D. Smith

    My editor recently suggested that as long as I was writing something called "Singles," it might be helpful if I actually went out on a date every once in a while. Research. Give the column the ring of verisimilitude.

    I must admit that I resisted at first. I've been on dates before....

  • All Dressed Up

    By Teresa Strasser

    I remember what I was wearing on just about every first date with every boyfriend I've ever had.

    I remember what I wore on the first day of fifth grade -- a hand-me-down green flowered dress with red polyester kneesocks.

    I remember the pastel, flowered, zipper-at-the-ankle Guess?...

    Money, Meaning and Mongolian Beef

    As if in slow motion, the ominous hand of a waiter dips down into the center of view, dropping the check before I've had a chance to excuse myself to the restroom.

    I'm in some Chinese restaurant in...
