  • Crack, an Empty Nest, a New Girlfriend & Taco Night

    By Ilana Angel

    September 1, 2013 | 7:55 am

    This week, while running an errand in Hollywood, I came upon a young man on the street. He looked a little bit like Jesus as he had a beard and was wearing a long white tunic of some kind.  As I approached him, he asked me if I had any spare crack.  I stopped for a second because I...

  • Unnecessary Gunn violence: A take on Skyler White

    By Melissa Weller

    August 28, 2013 | 4:15 pm

    Yesterday I asked a coworker, with whom I’ve participated in many a yay Skyler/nay Skyler conversation, to forget details for a minute and sum up in one general statement the first time he remembered filing Skyler White under the bitch column, and why. Coworker settled on Skyler’s...

  • 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...

  • Do men and women matter?

    By Dennis Prager

    July 17, 2013 | 11:48 am

    Most Americans do not realize that, as large as the issue of same-sex marriage is (and it is very large), there is an even larger issue at stake in the same-sex marriage debate.

    That issue is whether gender matters: Do male and female, man and woman, matter?

    In the brief span...

  • Thou shall not have images ... on buses ... neither men nor women

    August 28, 2012 | 4:58 pm

    Fearing costly vandalism aimed at buses carrying advertisements that include images of women; to avoid legal issues of discrimination if only images of men appear; and to side-step head-on collisions with Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox community; Egged, Israel’s public bus...

  • 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? ...

  • Lynn R.

    July 11, 2012 | 3:03 pm

    Lynn has been a widow since 1996 and is doing her best to fall in love again. But she’s finding the world of online dating difficult to navigate. On one date, she told me, “I found out the guy was a bookie.” He was in a bad mood because he had just lost $8,000. “There was one...

  • For the Love of God, Just Break Up With Him Already!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 18, 2012 | 9:30 am

    There is a culture in our relationship obsessed young women’s world that has obfuscated a dark truth.  We have so overly focused on fixing our relationships that we have become completely blind to the fact that we’re in terrible relationships.  We read articles and talk and think for...

  • Important Dating Rule: Don’t Ask Trick Questions

    By Ilana Angel

    April 24, 2012 | 10:47 pm

    I understand that people lie.  It happens millions of times, every single day, by millions of people.  Lies can hurt, but do they hurt more or less than the truth?  There is a very clear line between a telling a lie and deceiving someone, so I wonder if I would ever choose a lie over...

  • Chelsea Football: A Sea of Sexy Men

    By Ilana Angel

    April 17, 2012 | 12:06 am

    I am not a soccer fan.  My son played for years and I sat through countless games supporting him.  He became an All Star player and truly loved it. I would cheer him on and wait for something to happen. Anything to happen. Running back and forth across a field for an hour was just...

  • From the mouths of the babes…

    By Julia Bendis

    February 22, 2012 | 9:00 pm

    Somehow I’ve known all along that kids don’t stay kids for long (I know I’m a genius), but I didn’t expect to get ‘educated’ about various sexual subjects by a twelve-year-old boy.  More importantly… my twelve-year-old boy.  When this school year started, so did the...

  • S**T Gentiles say to Jews…

    By Julia Bendis

    February 2, 2012 | 3:25 pm

    After one of my hissy fits over yet another moronic comment by a non-Jew, I decided it was time to sit down and write out ALL of the idiotic things I’ve heard over the years.  So, strap on your seat-belts, lean back, relax and enjoy:

    • I hope you don’t take this personally, but if...
  • He Mostly Has Eyes For Me

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    January 12, 2012 | 8:00 am

    A few weeks ago, my boyfriend let slip that he was titillated by another woman.  Well, almost.  It might not have been as bad at it could have been, but it was there.

    There was this really sexy ad running on FX for their new show American Horror Story which I’ve been watching but...

  • Promoting men’s Jewish engagement

    By Roberto Loiederman

    January 4, 2012 | 12:52 pm

    Rabbi Charles Simon, a recent visiting lecturer at American Jewish University (AJU), asked rabbinical students how they would deal with a future intermarriage. One young rabbi-to-be said he’d welcome the couple … then tell them that, unfortunately, he couldn’t marry them....

  • The overly manly Israel Factor

    By Shmuel Rosner

    December 24, 2011 | 3:02 pm

    The Forwards’ Jane Eisner gives me “the benefit of the doubt”, but still wants to know why our group of Israel Factor experts includes only men. She has a point – even if I don’t much appreciate the insinuated “deliberate attempt to shut out differing views”. If...

  • Ashton, Demi and younger men’s inability to appreciate older women

    By  Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

    November 18, 2011 | 11:15 am

    The unfortunate breakup of the marriage between Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher should be of interest even to those who have better things to do with their time than follow mindless Hollywood chatter and celebrity gossip. This relationship was always unique in that it involved an...

  • Dating Fact: Dating Sucks

    By Ilana Angel

    November 8, 2011 | 11:33 pm

    No matter how old you are, dating is hard.  I have been dating a long time and still have no idea what I’m doing.  Well I know what I’m doing, it’s the men I’m dating that leave me confused.  It’s a shame it needs to be so difficult.  One would hope the search for love,...

  • A man’s equipment…

    By Julia Bendis

    November 4, 2011 | 10:00 pm

    It has been years since I’ve watched old episodes of ‘Seinfeld’. I usually come across it, watch for a few minutes then move on.  Today’s show, however made me pause and think.  It was the one where Elaine tries to change a homosexual man into a heterosexual unsuccessfully. ...

  • Dating, Kids, Religion, Sex

    By Ilana Angel

    October 21, 2011 | 12:06 pm

    I had lunch with a friend this week who suggested that in order for me to meet a nice guy, I should start dating men who are not Jewish.  I’ve received that advice before from many people, but I was surprised to hear it from this particular friend.  He is not only Jewish, but...

  • It’s Ok To Ignore His Words

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    September 22, 2011 | 4:58 pm

    In the dating world, girls spend a lot of time trying to interpret men.  And way too much of that time in my opinion is spent going over what he said.  Does he not want me to come him with to the company party?  Does that mean his mom just thinks I’m a friend?  Does he think...

  • You Can’t Change a Man…Or Can You?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    September 15, 2011 | 11:29 am

    My Grandmother always tells me you can’t change a man.  Better to just let him be.  We’ve all heard this and everyone likes to think that they would never be the kind of person to ask a significant other to change.  But yet, it’s impossible not to change at least a little when...

  • Israelis + Cell Phones + Sushi = Impaling a Stranger with a Chopstick

    By Ilana Angel

    September 15, 2011 | 7:50 am

    Yesterday was busy.  I worked all day, picked up my son from school, and with Big Brother and America’s Got Talent having their season finales, and Survivor premiering, I had a long night of blogging for my reality blog Keeping it Real.  I decided we would go out for dinner so I...

  • My 5 Dating Questions for Men

    By Ilana Angel

    September 12, 2011 | 1:25 am

    I’m a terrible dater, which is unfortunate since I date so much.  I don’t date just for the sake of dating, but because I am lonely and want to have a partner for the second half of my life.  Plus my son, who is the great love of my life, wants to go to NYU for college and if I...

    August 5, 2011 | 12:54 am

    Yesterday I went to the grocery store.  It was super hot out, had been a long day, my son left for a camping trip, I was sucked into stupid drama, had a headache, and wanted to get in and out of the store in a hurry.  I raced through the market on a mission, and ended up in the...

  • So much for trying to be a Good Samaritan…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 26, 2011 | 11:22 am

    Driving today, I came to a car that broke down. I got out of my car and went to ask if they needed help. As I approached the two men standing around, they both stared at me as if to say: “What do you want?”

    I asked if they were alright, and needed any help. At first they...

    Backstory

    :

    I wrote a post called You Should Get Skinny which suggested in its most reductive form that to date in a certain pool of men, you have to get thin.  (I hope you read the nuances to this premise in the post here before proceeding because a lot of the debate misses my...

  • Chivalry is Dead!

    By Julia Bendis

    June 16, 2011 | 10:02 am

    What has become of chivalry?  Does it even exist anymore?  Everywhere I go I’m seeing women carrying big packages, pushing bulky strollers, and lugging around overweight toddlers while their men are cruising by without a care in the world!  The thing is that it doesn’t even seem like...

    Ever since Tiger Woods slipped and unleashed a fury onto himself, every woman out there has been asking the same question: “How could he?  Why would he?”  Then, Jesse James, a.k.a. Mr. Sandra Bullock followed in suit, not to mention countless government officials; gay or straight. ...

  • You Should Be Skinny

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    April 4, 2011 | 2:30 pm

    This is not my advice on how you should get skinny.  I’m simply telling you, you should be skinny.  Everyone has to figure out what sort of diet and exercise plan and tricks and tips works for them.  Since I retired from dancing professionally, my weight has been pretty steady –...
