    Elyse, 43, is a freelancer for this magazine — but that doesn’t mean she was coerced into being interviewed for My Single Peeps. At least as far as I know. I’ve never met a single person at the office. I write from home. Maybe it’s a tyrannical organization. All I know is she...

  • Matchmaking Woes…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 31, 2012 | 8:03 pm

    I can’t remember exactly WHEN I started matchmaking, but it seems like I’ve been doing it forever…  In fact, I clearly remember trying to set people up back when I was in high school.  Most kids seemed open to it, however I was always asked the same question, even to this day: “Why? ...

  • What is Wrong with This Online Dating Profile?

    By Ilana Angel

    September 26, 2011 | 11:33 pm

    Yesterday I wrote that after a two week break, I was back to online dating. I was immediately contacted by men I would never date.  They were too young, or too old, or too toothy.  I don’t quite understand why I attract the men I do.  Many of them are not in my age range, or not...

  • Bravo Fans hit Twitter to Silence Patti Stanger & Millionaire Matchmaker

    By Ilana Angel

    September 25, 2011 | 9:06 pm

    I am not a fan of Patti Stanger, or her “reality” show, Millionaire Matchmaker.  I think she is obnoxious, rude, disrespectful, bad for women, and bad for Jews.  She claims to have a 99% success rate, yet there has never been a successful relationship depicted on her show.  It is...

    I am married with a kid and living in Los Angeles. Many of my friends are single. They like to complain to me about how hard it is to find someone to love. (I like to complain about how hard it is living with someone you love.) This is my way of trying to get them off of my back....

  • Attack of ‘The Mothers’

    By Danielle Berrin

    March 13, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    It's early Saturday morning and Shabbat is cresting with the West Coast sunrise. As is my custom, I dress, slip into a pair of heels, and ready myself for a contemplative worship. When I was new in town I could daven, throw back a shot of Manichewitz and grab a piece of challah on my...
  • I am not a fixer-upper!

    By  Orit Arfa

    January 3, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    Do I have a sign on my forehead that says, "Fix me up"? I hope not, because then I'd really have a hard time meeting guys.

    But every so often I get a phone call from a friend or relative, or my mom's friend or co-worker, and even from people I meet on the street: "Orit, I want to...

  • Singles - Walk Out the Door

    By Shoshana Lewin-Fischer

    May 18, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Mr. Chauvinist. Mr. Cheapskate. Mr. Paranoid. Mr. Habitually Late. Mr. Whiner. The parallel universe of "Little Men" of the 21st century are alive and well and living in Los Angeles -- and my friends have, unfortunately, dated them all.

    The friends I refer to (I'll call them, "The...
