  • Dating 101: The Art of Flirting

    By Ilana Angel

    June 19, 2013 | 5:12 pm

    Flirting is one of the few things about being single that is fun.  I love to flirt, and the truth is that when it comes to the art of flirtatious banter, I am an expert. Sexual banter?  Again, an expert.  Knowing the perfect time to twirl my hair, laugh, bat my eyelashes, and offer...

    I was in San Francisco last weekend to celebrate the Englishman’s birthday.  His oldest daughter lives there while going to University, so we schlepped up to spend a couple of nights and have a nice birthday dinner.  We had all three of our kids with us and it was a great visit. ...

    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...

  • The Male Gaze

    Pretty girls get things for free.  You may not like this, you may think it’s a terrible superficial tragedy of our society that rewards people for something they don’t deserve.  You may think it’s a double standard because men aren’t rewarded based on appearance in the same...

    Awards Season is over! Thank God! While I wasn’t at the Academy Awards Sunday night, I along with the rest of the city’s scenesters have been all over the city in the last few weeks for awards parties, luncheons, and celebrations. As fun as it all is, it’s also a lot of work...

  • The Rule of Three

    By Amy Klein

    The weird thing about mixed seating in synagogue is that sometimes couples are all over each other. Inappropriate during prayer time for sure, but somewhat more distracting when one half of that couple happens to be a guy you once dated.

    A guy you dated until he yelled at you for...

  • Whose soulmate is it, anyway?

    By Jessica Ravitz

    A Jerusalem rabbi once told me that when we're born, God whispers the name of our beshert -- our soulmate or destiny. The cleft above our lips, he said, is where God places a finger, to silence our ability to reveal the secret.

    Since then, I've anticipated the moment when I'd happen...

  • Thanks, Wingman!

    By Jay Firestone

    July 26, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    I have gone into bars and thrown myself into situations unprepared. I have struggled to find something impressive to say and ended up highlighting my brief stint as an extra on "The Office." And I have walked away from a girl with a number suspecting that it was lifted directly off a...
  • Grunions

    By Rob Eshman

    The grunion were running last weekend, so I went down to the Venice Beach breakwater just before midnight to watch them mate. The sight of thousands of slim, silvery fish wiggling desperately out of the surf and struggling to spawn before the next wave crashed upon them made me...
