  • 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 –...

  • Flames You Can’t Put Out

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 30, 2011 | 6:14 pm

    Until recently, I thought the idea of “chemistry” was somewhat made up – a term people used ex post facto to justify liking a certain physical aesthetic.  Like if a guy went on a date with a brunette and he really just has a thing for blondes, he would say “oh that girl was...

  • Aristophanes on Creation and Love

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 24, 2011 | 10:57 am

    I went to the live Radiolab show at UCLA’s Royce Hall, which by the way was an incredible evening, and heard a beautiful story that I cannot stop thinking about.  I will paraphrase it for you as best I can, but really I won’t be able to do it justice and I hope you read more...

  • Words of Wisdom or something like it.

    By Julia Bendis

    March 21, 2011 | 5:52 pm

    - When people say that they are only 5 minutes away, they are really 20 minutes away.

    - If your Doctor’s appointment is at 3 p.m., show up at 3:15 to skip sitting in the waiting room.  It works like a charm!

    - When your kid is going on and on about something, and the story doesn’t...

  • The Male Gaze

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 21, 2011 | 12:18 pm

    Pretty girls get things for free.  You may not like this, you may think it’s a terrible superficial tragedy of our society that rewards people for something they don’t deserve.  You may think it’s a double standard because men aren’t rewarded based on appearance in the same...

  • Hook Chas Up

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 18, 2011 | 1:00 pm

    Men.  Sometimes I just don’t even know what to say.  Recently my friend turned me onto this site www.hookchasup.com.  Basically, a 40 year old guy who looks cute enough and probably at least moderately successful, made a website to offer $10,000 to the person who introduces him to...

  • NPR’s Ronald Schiller is Hot!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 17, 2011 | 6:19 pm

    My beloved NPR is in trouble as the House has voted to cut funding to NPR and CPB.  Ron Schiller’s part in this is now well-known – he was NPR’s chief fundraiser and was caught on tape recently by conservative activist James O’Keefe.  Not only did he have to resign, not only...

  • Letting Yourself Go

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 17, 2011 | 12:59 pm

    My sister has been in a relationship for two years now and she’s very proud of the fact that she’s let herself go.  Not in the traditional sense of becoming unattractive.  She’s a gorgeous young twenty something who has probably never weighed more than a hundred pounds and has...

  • Hank Moody Syndrome

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 16, 2011 | 7:36 pm

    Maybe it’s because I live where they shoot the show, but recently I’ve felt like every guy I know in Santa Monica/Venice wants to be Hank Moody.  I love the show Californication and at first, I thought all the references to it had to do with some general wistfulness about just...

  • The Currency of Flirting

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 3, 2011 | 10:29 am

    Awards Season is over! Thank God! While I wasn’t at the Academy Awards Sunday night, I along with the rest of the city’s scenesters have been all over the city in the last few weeks for awards parties, luncheons, and celebrations. As fun as it all is, it’s also a lot of work...

  • When Mr. Nice Guy Doesn’t Get That He’s Mr. Nice Guy

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 24, 2011 | 11:16 am

    A couple that are friends of mine, Gwen and David, have been going through some rough times lately. She’s a super smart, very pretty girl, who has dated a string of a$$h*l@s who have treated her like dirt. Probably something about being a little too nerdy to ever be that popular...

  • Why You’re All Mistaken About What’s Wrong With Today’s Men

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 23, 2011 | 10:00 am

    My last post was about what’s wrong with women. This one is about what’s wrong with men. Two articles have been atop everyone’s cocktail party conversation this past week.  In the first, Day of the Lout which appeared in the LA Times, Neal Gabler suggests in his own words that...

  • Who Says No to This?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 9, 2011 | 11:15 am

    So this past weekend, I had one of those long girly dinners where you go out to eat, drink wine till you’re giggling obnoxiously, and talk about men.  The topic turned to what happens to us when we as the girl in a relationship are the ones who get rejected, as in turned down for...

  • Take the Hint!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 1, 2011 | 10:00 am

    I hate having to reject someone I’ve already rejected.  Rejecting someone is so uncomfortable already.  Whether or not you’re trying to gently let down someone you actually care about or you’re telling this weirdo to his face, that every time he leans in closer, your skin...

  • The Depressing News on the Cost of Success?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    January 26, 2011 | 9:28 am

    So this week I read the most depressing article I’ve read in a long time (and I read a lot).  Tracy Clark-Flory in a story on Salon interviewed Mark Regnerus, the co-author of a new book that was just released, Premarital Sex in America: How Young Americans Meet, Mate and Think...

  • He Only Wanted Sex?!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    January 19, 2011 | 9:41 am

    I had an epiphany on Friday night.  After a scrumptious dinner at my friends’ gastropub The Yard in Santa Monica, I went with some friends to see a girlfriend of mine sing Jazz at El Cid in Los Feliz.  I rarely have moments of self-doubt, possibly to my detriment, but on this...

  • Not a Ralphs fan in the least

    By Julia Bendis

    December 27, 2010 | 12:09 pm

    Being a wife, a mother and a woman in general, you find yourself at a grocery store quite a bit.  I also find myself quite a bit pissed off when I am there.  I really thought that America was all about business, and customer service, and giving really good customer service.  I guess...

  • Israeli study: As negotiators, man smart, woman smarter

    August 13, 2008 | 3:55 am

    Forget the men when it comes to business negotiations. Women may be more skilled than their masculine counterparts, according to a new study by an Israeli researcher.

    The doctoral study, by Yael Itzhaki of Tel Aviv University (TAU), indicated that in certain groupings, women offered...

  • Women keep out—this seder’s for men only

    By Amy Klein

    April 10, 2008 | 6:00 pm

    "Avadim Hayinu," one of the first refrains of the Passover seder, usually refers to the fact that we were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt. "What enslaves us as men," is another interpretation -- this at The Man Seder, the third annual men-only pre-Passover gathering, which takes place at...
  • Men: the ill topic of choice

    By Merissa Nathan Gerson

    June 28, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    It happens to the smartest and most beautiful of women. Enter Ms. X. We run into each other four years after we were friends in college and decide to meet for dinner.

    Ms. X is skinnier now, wears a lot more makeup and is no longer all about T-shirts and jeans. She is high-style and...
  • New commentary looks at Torah from woman’s point of view

    By Jacob Berkman

    October 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    How many people know that when the Torah describes Abraham mourning the death of Sarah, it's the only time in the entire text that a man mourns a woman? Or that Adam and Eve were equal partners in crime? Or that women most likely were instrumental in constructing the Temple?

    Too few....

  • Dear Mr. Sensitive

    By Diane Saltzberg

    August 17, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Jokes survive on the Internet like Styrofoam in a landfill. Perhaps you've already read these "Actual Personal Ads in Israeli Newspapers":
    • Professor with 18 years of teaching in my behind wants American-born woman who speaks English very good.
    • 80-year-old bubbe, no assets, seeks...
  • ‘Talk to You Soon’

    By Dara Lehon

    July 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    For the record, not all men are creeps. Sure, some creep along to get things done, but most don't mean harm, and there are some really, truly terrific guys out there.

    And get this: Not all men (particularly those who dump you) are idiots. In fact, they know exactly what they're...

  • A Super ‘Schmooze’ Move

    May 25, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The unforgettable superheroes of comic strips became the stuff of endless Hollywood big-budget sequels. But more often than not, they began in the fevered imaginations of struggling young Jewish guys, whose wildest dreams could be hemmed in only by four panels and black ink.

    "In June...

  • Dating Creeds

    By Dara Lehon

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Believe it or not, I've never felt quite as valuable, attractive and desirable as the times I've gotten dumped. Well, sort of.

    According to some once-doting men, I'm terrific. I'm also beautiful, talented, smart, sassy, funny, dynamic, cute and sweet. To make matters worse, I'd make...

  • Lift The Ban on Gay Blood Donors

    By Lisa Hurwitz

    March 2, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    When students arrived at Milken Community High School on the morning of Jan. 10, they were confronted by a large banner reading: "Did you know homosexual males cannot give blood?"

    That was the start of a student-led Equal Blood Campaign to press the FDA to lift its blanket ban on...

  • Skip the Tsuris of Chanukah Shopping

    By Lisa Alcalay Klug

    December 15, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    With Chanukah coinciding with the rush for the "other holiday," why spend unnecessary time hunting for parking at the mall or waiting in line? We've surveyed some of the hottest catalogs and Web sites for eight nights of creative gifts. Best of all, you can order in a hurry online or...

    Those eight crazy nights are coming up fast. Still stumped what to get your sweetie? Think outside the giftbox and give your loved one a gift certificate for an experience. Whether it's a pampering, an adventure, or just some much needed help, Los Angeles is loaded with services that...

  • JDate Welcomes Gays

    By Matthew E. Berger

    December 8, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    For all the nice Jewish boys looking for other nice Jewish boys, JDate.com has come to the rescue.

    The popular Jewish online dating site expanded its search capabilities this month to allow gay men -- and also lesbians -- to seek matches. The Web site now asks people for their gender...

  • Sense and Sensitivity

    By Lori Gottlieb

    October 13, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    If you spend much time looking at online dating profiles -- and admit it, you do -- you'll notice that the No. 1 characteristic men seem to be seeking in a potential match is "attractive." We women (attractive or not) are overwhelmingly in search of "sensitive." For us, Mr. Right is...
