  • Dating 101: Scrambling for Position

    By Ilana Angel

    November 8, 2013 | 7:32 am

    Part of what makes dating so hard is that you never know if what someone new tells you is true. You never know if someone you’ve known forever is telling the truth, so the expectation someone new will, is a leap of faith.  It is not enough to just be attracted to someone. There has...

  • 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 – Timing is Everything

    By Ilana Angel

    October 10, 2013 | 2:36 pm

    I have a date with Coach tonight and I am looking forward to it.  He is a lovely man. He listens, values my opinion, thinks I am beautiful, makes me laugh, and through his life experiences I am not only able to respect his bravery and grace, but also value my own experiences in a...

  • Dating 101:  Sexual Advances, Ex Pics & Online Profiles

    By Ilana Angel

    September 19, 2013 | 9:44 am

    I am not dating online as much as I am spending a few minutes each day writing men that I would never go out with, to tell them I appreciate their interest, but we are not a match.  I wish them good luck with their search and while it is disheartening, I write back to all who...

  • Dating 101: Double Dipping

    By Ilana Angel

    September 16, 2013 | 4:43 pm

    Just when I think my dating life cannot get any stranger, it does.  I have been chronicling my dating life for four years.  In that time I have had the most horrific dates ever, along with a long term relationship, and I shared it all.  From the man who arrived to our date drunk...

  • 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: Looking Back to See Ahead

    By Ilana Angel

    August 29, 2013 | 2:20 pm

    I have had a series of unfortunate dates.  I am not sure how it is that I keep meeting men who are so horrible, but I do.  In meeting men who are repulsive, you can’t help but look back at past relationships and compare the old to the new. Were my past relationships with men who...

  • 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...

  • ‘Natalie Portman’ seeks Shabbat dinner dates via Craigslist

    August 15, 2013 | 10:27 am

    What does a beautiful, successful, and, uh, married actress like Natalie Portman need to do to find men willing to come over for Shabbat dinner? Turn to Craigslist, naturally!

    Okay, so the Washington, D.C. woman who is looking for nice Jewish boys to break challah with probably...

    August 7, 2013 | 6:14 am

    I like men.  I am raising a boy to be a man. A good man. I like men of all shapes and sizes.  I have dated men who are short, tall, thin, heavyset, bearded, clean shaven, bald, and with a full head of hair.  In terms of how someone looks, I tend to be attracted to bald men with...

    August 1, 2013 | 7:09 pm

    When I took my son to the airport on Tuesday night for his adventure back east, he asked for my phone to program in a number I needed.  I went to the restroom, returned and got my phone, and saw my son off.  I cried the entire way home.  I miss him like crazy and am counting down...

  • Dating 101:  The Charity Pity Date

    By Ilana Angel

    July 16, 2013 | 4:14 pm

    I recently wrote about the “Vegetarian”. We met for a movie and he decided he was going to turn it into a date.  He specifically told me it was a date, and he sealed it with a kiss.  When I wrote him this week to make plans to see him again, he told me he is actually dating...

    By Ilana Angel

    July 5, 2013 | 10:29 am

    I have been speaking with a gentleman friend recently about my last relationship, and opened up to him in a way that is both comforting, and disturbing.  We have never met, or even spoken on the phone.  He lives in Los Angeles, is divorced, a dad, Jewish, tall and handsome, yet we...

  • 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...

  • Dating, Motherhood, Life: Getting Your Groove Back

    By Ilana Angel

    June 7, 2013 | 7:20 am

    Entering the world of dating after such a long time is interesting.  By interesting of course I mean not that interesting.  I am not sure what I am doing, having trouble getting into the rhythm of the dating dance, and frankly making a bit of a fool out of myself.  I am not good at...

  • Prom, Dating, Knowing Your Worth

    By Ilana Angel

    June 2, 2013 | 10:48 pm

    My son went to his Junior Prom this weekend. He looked so handsome and grown up that it took my breath away. As we took pictures I stared at this man and wondered where the time had gone.  He has grown up in what feels like a minute and I cannot wrap my head around it.  He is tall,...

  • Dating 101: Love is Blind

    By Ilana Angel

    May 14, 2013 | 4:36 pm

    The process of dating is really hard.  When you are going on a series of first dates, it is also exhausting.  It takes a lot of time to get ready, to engage in banter with a stranger, to convince yourself that you want to be there, and not at home in your pajamas with a glass of...

  • Dating 101: “Why Are You Single?”

    By Ilana Angel

    May 7, 2013 | 7:41 pm

    I never like it when men ask me why I am single, yet I recently asked a man that very question.  It is an odd question and should never be asked, except when discussing your love life with a therapist. There are only two ways to answer it, and both ways are never going to be good. ...

  • Three Dates with Iron Man

    By Ilana Angel

    May 3, 2013 | 8:09 am

    I had a date with the Israeli last night.  In fact, we actually had 3 dates. We met for a drink. Simple and casual, with a definite connection, so we continued onto dinner and date #2. After four hours together, we were not quite ready to part ways, so we went out for a nightcap,...

  • Windows, Doors, Friends & Hope

    By Ilana Angel

    April 30, 2013 | 3:54 pm

    I have met a man. He makes me think about things differently, laugh from a place deep within, share with no hesitation, and flutter like a schoolgirl.  Our meeting was random and unexpected, yet the friendship we are starting is profound.  We don’t have a lot in common, and our...

  • To Date or Not To Date?

    By Ilana Angel

    April 29, 2013 | 12:01 am

    It has been a few weeks since the Englishman decided to not only break up with me, but to no longer be my friend. It has been shocking really, and I cannot stop crying.  Not at the loss of love, which is sad, but at the loss of friendship, which it turns out must not have been...

  • Break Up Humiliation, Reflection & Adele

    By Ilana Angel

    April 16, 2013 | 8:46 pm

    When a relationship ends it is humiliating.  When you write about your relationship for the world to see, a break up takes on a whole other level of humiliation. I have spent the last year sharing my love with you.  How we met, our dates, meeting kids, our first fight, our first...

  • Tall Jew, Short Jew, Lying Jew, Old Jew

    By Ilana Angel

    April 15, 2013 | 8:36 pm

    How is it possible that a large group of men can all suffer from the same disorder and not be aware of it?  Jewish men are simply unable to give their correct height.  Why?  If they are 5’4”, they say 5’7”.  If they are 5’7”, they say they are 5’10”.  If they are 5’10”, they...

    April 14, 2013 | 9:48 pm

    Well it happened.  After feeling sorry for myself, crying, and drowning my sorrow in red wine and cosmos, I have rejoined the dating world.  It was a surprisingly easy decision.  People give the advice that after a break up you need to heal and give yourself time, but the truth is...

    I had a lovely Valentine’s Day.  The Englishman and I spent the evening with the kids and had a wonderful dinner.  I got the most wonderful cards, flowers, chocolate, and gifts.  I love Valentine’s Day and to share it with the people I love was very special.  I know it is full of...
