  • Dating 101: Start to finish in under an hour

    By Ilana Angel

    3 weeks ago

    I received an email online from a man this evening. He is handsome, educated, and at first glance seemed very entertaining. He wrote me a charming and funny email letting me know he was interested. I sent a quick response as I was in line at the grocery store. When I got home I...

  • Dating 101: Memory Loss

    By Ilana Angel

    August 10, 2016 | 6:34 pm

    I like to think I have a good memory, but the truth is I forget a lot of stuff. I am particularly forgetful when it comes to dating. I’ve been dating for so long faces and names blur together into a sea of disappointment. I’m just kidding. No I’m not. Dating can be disappointing....

  • Dating, Sex & Pokemon Go

    By Ilana Angel

    July 22, 2016 | 6:50 am

    One of the best things about being a grown up is sex. We understand it, can embrace the emotions that go with it, separate ourselves from the emotions that go with it, say what we want, express what we need, know what we like, know what we’re good at, stop holding our stomachs in,...

    I had a date Friday night with a lovely man. He was sweet, handsome, and a gentleman. We met for a drink and hung out for a couple of hours. He has been divorced for about a year and a half and I was his first date. Yup, first date since his divorce. It was lovely that he asked me...

  • Dating 101: Return of the Englishman

    By Ilana Angel

    July 14, 2016 | 7:33 am

    I am home after 12 days in London. I love England and enjoy my time there. I worked long hours and didn’t have time to see family in Manchester, but I got my work done and am happy to share I’ll be spending the next 12 months traveling back and forth for a project, and am looking...

  • Dating 101: Red Flags

    By Ilana Angel

    June 28, 2016 | 2:18 pm

    I took a jab at Boots on here last week and people asked me about it. Please know I am fine with the end of our relationship, because it turns out it wasn’t really a relationship. It was more of an experiment. Can a man use the kindness of one good woman, to get back one bad woman?...

  • Dating 101: Almost Divorced & Quitting Smoking

    By Ilana Angel

    June 26, 2016 | 5:39 pm

    I had two dates last week. Both liars and neither particularly bright. Bless them. I don’t understand the concept of lying while dating, and have to laugh when the lies begin right at the start. By right at the start, of course I mean before we even meet. I went in with no...

  • Mother’s Day & Sing Street

    By Ilana Angel

    May 8, 2016 | 10:29 pm

    I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I started my day by sleeping until 8:30, which is out of the ordinary for me. My son took me out for a fabulous champagne breakfast. I really enjoy my son’s company. He makes me laugh and I look at him with great love and pride. He is a wonderful...

  • Dating 101: Being Stood Up

    By Ilana Angel

    April 4, 2016 | 9:43 pm

    A couple of years ago I was at my local pub watching a Premier League football game and a man held the door open for me. I thought it was lovely and when I thanked him, he smiled kindly. I never thought about it again, until I saw him on an online dating site. I wrote to say hello,...

  • Dating Donald Trump

    By Ilana Angel

    March 27, 2016 | 9:38 am

    I had a date last week. To clarify, I had a really great date last week. I was nervous about going because it has been a while since I went on a date that didn’t make me want to impale myself, or go to the bathroom and climb out a window. Dating is rough. It requires a level of...

  • Dating 101: He Dumped Me

    By Ilana Angel

    September 4, 2015 | 3:51 pm

    I’ve been dating a man for a month. We have known each other for 15 years and happened to find each other single at the same time so we started dating. It has been nice to spend time with him. He is wise, kind, and funny. He makes me laugh and I value his opinion. He has met my...

    To men who are dating online and between the ages of 45 and 58, please allow me to help you. You're in my dating range so I'm helping you in an attempt to help myself. Dating is rough and dating online is as painful as it is entertaining. Some days it is a miracle just to make it...

  • Dating, Motherhood, Growing Pains & Insomnia

    By Ilana Angel

    July 31, 2014 | 7:09 pm

    I haven’t had a good date in a long time. The truth is I haven’t had a date of any kind in a long time. I simply cannot be bothered to put myself out there. I’m not sure if it is because I am officially jaded, or just tired, but either way I am not dating. It is a shame because one...

  • Dating 101: Do you know me?

    By Ilana Angel

    July 11, 2014 | 12:24 am

    I had a date this week with a man who told me I was prettier in person than in pictures. Before he said hello or nice to meet you, he said I was “surprisingly attractive”. He explained in detail that I don’t take a great picture. As he let me know I was a “pleasant surprise”, and...

  • Dating 101: Introducing the Gentile Giant

    By Ilana Angel

    January 5, 2014 | 8:36 am

    I had a date last night. We met online, spoke on the phone, and exchanged a couple of text conversations. He is my age, funny, charming, and I think he looks like a young Ed O’Neill. He is a gentle and inherently kind man. I felt comfortable with him both on the phone and in...

    I had a date last night with a man I met on Match.com. He is 52, 5’10”, dark hair, blue eyes, works in finance, divorced, two adult children, and a great sense of humor. We spoke on the phone twice and our conversations were short but fun.  We decided to meet for a drink. He...

  • 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: The Coach Update

    October 22, 2013 | 7:26 am

    I am stressed out this week and am somewhat overwhelmed. Between college apps for my son, working on a book proposal, writing, watching way too much reality television, shooting a new reality show for BiteSize Networks, and dating someone new I really care about, it has all made me...

    By Ilana Angel

    October 20, 2013 | 4:36 pm

    I went to a BBQ on Saturday that was unlike any BBQ I have ever been to. I ventured out of the valley, which I rarely do, and headed for the marina where I was in for an interesting afternoon. It was an eclectic group of people and I was fascinated.  By fascinated of course I mean...

    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...

    By Ilana Angel

    October 7, 2013 | 10:44 pm

    Last night I had a date with Coach and I don’t mind telling you I am a little giddy.  It was the kind of date where everything happens exactly how you want. From the holding of hands, to the tasting of each other’s drinks, to the kiss goodnight, we were in sync.  I find myself with...

  • 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
