  • Guershon M.

    June 6, 2012 | 2:04 pm

    The most embarrassing aspect of Guershon’s life is that he’s 34 and lives with his mom, so of course I’ll lead with that. “I started film school and I [moved in with my mom], and the hardest thing for me was it seemed like [my friends] had all their s—- together. It was...

  • My Single Peeps: Isaac S.

    May 15, 2012 | 8:58 pm

    When Isaac sits down to speak with me, I see the rugged beard with a shot of gray around the chin, the athletic build and the tight-fitting Israeli-style clothes, and I think, “I know exactly who this guy is.” He has an Israeli accent, so when he first says to me, “In Israel I...

  • 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...

  • Breaking All the Rules

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 26, 2011 | 1:50 pm

    Today, I’ve given my blog entry over to a very special guest, my sister Jenna Kagel.  I thought you might enjoy hearing from someone completely out of the scene and in a happy relationship for a change.


    I remember being in college and hearing a story of a family friend who had...

  • Letting Yourself Go

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 17, 2011 | 12:59 pm

    My sister has been in a relationship for two years now and she’s very proud of the fact that she’s let herself go.  Not in the traditional sense of becoming unattractive.  She’s a gorgeous young twenty something who has probably never weighed more than a hundred pounds and has...

  • It takes a village

    By Ilana Angel

    August 23, 2009 | 11:50 am

    Yesterday was a draining day.  After dating “Richard” for a few weeks and beginning to think he was great, I got a call from his girlfriend of a year and a half asking who I was and why my number appeared so often on her phone bill.  It was shocking.  I spent about 30 minutes...

  • The Candy Man Can

    By Teresa Strasser

    August 24, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    If you've ever tried to split a Big Hunk candy bar -- the kind made out of brittle white nougat and peanuts -- then you understand a typical breakup. It's usually not neat, like a Kit Kat, two for you, two for me, let's go our separate ways and we'll run into each other in three...

  • No Deposit, No Return

    By Debra L. Eckerling

    August 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Dating is difficult enough without asking for a guarantee. Imagine my surprise when the last guy I went out with wanted just that.

    I had met "Bob" at a Jewish networking event. We took a nice walk afterward, talked about what we were and weren't looking for in a relationship,...

  • ‘Talk to You Soon’

    By Dara Lehon

    July 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    For the record, not all men are creeps. Sure, some creep along to get things done, but most don't mean harm, and there are some really, truly terrific guys out there.

    And get this: Not all men (particularly those who dump you) are idiots. In fact, they know exactly what they're...

  • 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...

  • Watch Out Ladies, Dad’s Dating Again

    By Howard Leff

    November 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    Guess who has a new girlfriend? Well, besides me. And thanks in advance for your warm wishes. It's the old man, actually. That's right. Look out golden girls. Dad's dating again.

    Well, he was -- until he met "the one." Can you believe that? Six months and he's off the market already....

  • Singles - Poetry in Motion

    By Teresa Strasser

    July 21, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In one night, I had dinner at an all-you-can eat salad bar in Arcadia, met my father's first girlfriend in 25 years and weathered a nearly disastrous poetry emergency.

    Sound the onomatopoetic sirens; this thing was a relationship 911. Free verse was about to cost my father the best...

  • Will She Marry Him?

    By Seth Menachem

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    In my last Singles column, "Change of Heart," I left off with one important question for my girlfriend, Carrie: "Will you marry me?"

    Did she say yes?

    Well, let me back up a bit.

    A few days before the column came out, I drove over to Carrie's parents to ask for their blessing. Carol...

  • The Ring

    By Greg Ross

    October 30, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    My girlfriend wants a ring.

    To say that I didn't see this coming is the understatement of the century. In a way, there is not much to tell:

    Los Angeles boy meets Boston girl living in Los Angeles. Though we had some differences -- seems the East Coast Ivy-Leaguers up there can even...

  • Illuminating ‘Moonlight Mile’

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    September 5, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Brad Silberling heard the terrible news from a police detective the morning of July 18, 1989. His 21-year-old girlfriend, actress Rebecca Schaeffer (TV's "My Sister Sam") had been shot dead by a stalker in the foyer of her Sweetzer Avenue apartment building.

    On many a Yom Kippur...

  • I Can’t Hang Out

    By J.D. Smith

    July 18, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    I went to a big Hollywood party last week. My girlfriend, Alison, was out of town. The occasion had something to do with a photo shoot for a fashion magazine.

    I don't know why this would occasion a party, but why not? Beautiful people love to party, and almost any excuse will do....

  • Au Revoir, Mes Amis

    By J.D. Smith

    May 23, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    I want to take this opportunity to say hello ... and goodbye to my friends. If you've been wondering where I've been lately, as my pal Mickey did in a phone call last week, I've got a new girlfriend (let's call her Alison), and I won't be seeing you around much anymore.

    Let's be...

  • Hit the Road, Jeff

    By J.D. Smith

    March 28, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    I have heard people refer to the process of meeting someone as "the dating minefield." I can't think of a place as chaotic, dangerous and fraught with anxiety as a minefield, except possibly anywhere one might go on a trip with one's new girlfriend. Out of this chaos comes order....

  • Get a Life

    By Teresa Strasser

    March 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Girl meets boy. Girl falls in love with boy. Girl stops returning her friend's phone calls. Girl's world narrows. Girl loses boy. Girl starts calling her friends again. Girl meets another boy.

    A pattern emerges.

    It's obvious, really. I just never noticed it until my boyfriend gave me...

  • Plush Reminders

    By Teresa Strasser

    February 1, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    Bunny. Das-tardly Bunny. Stupid stuffed, fluffy gift from his ex-girlfriend. Bunny, you've enjoyed life on his pillow for awhile, but now you must die. Bunny must die.

    This is what I thought as I tossed Bunny out the window of his bedroom last week. You see, there's something...

    Once, I had the notion on a Sunday afternoon that baking abatch of chocolate chip cookies would be a cathartic experience. Iwent to Ralphs, I bought the ingredients, I read the directions onthe back of the chips. But as I stirred the batter in a huge bowl, Iknew something wasn't...
