    I first spoke to my Englishman two months ago.  I thought he was funny and charming, but did not think he was my type.  He lived 35-45 minutes away and while attractive, he was unlike men I usually date. I loved that he’s English however, and agreed to a date because if nothing else...

  • Even a Good Girl Looks Like a Hooker When Her Date is 36 Minutes Late

    By Ilana Angel

    October 23, 2011 | 8:47 pm

    I had a date on Saturday night with a man we’ll call “Sparky”.  I chose this moniker not because it is a cute name for a puppy, thus implying he is a dog, but rather because both on the phone, and in person, we had a spark.  I am sarcastic and rather quick witted so when I meet...

    By Dara Lehon

    September 14, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    A conservative, long-term investor, I'll still admit to my sometimes ridiculous attraction to the highs and lows of risk. Question is: How much can I -- or anyone -- really handle?
     
    At 22, I'd fearlessly seek the beta -- or risk factor -- in anticipation of the alpha -- or excess...

  • A New Relationship

    By Teresa Strasser

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    A relationship with a new city is like a relationship with a new guy. At first, you compare a lot -- my ex had better nicknames for me; he made the bed in the morning. My ex was the one for me, and now I'm just marking time before becoming that old lady in line at the bagel shop who...
