  • A Nightmare 16 Years In The Making

    By Ilana Angel

    April 9, 2012 | 10:48 pm

    It has been a very interesting weekend.  By interesting of course I mean stressful, sad, and frightening.  It was Passover, which was wonderful.  It was my birthday, which was wonderful.  It was also the first time my son took the car out on his own, which was wonderful for him, but...

    PLEASE NOTE: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS MATURE SUBJECT MATTER AND MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR ALL READERS.  IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY SEXUALLY EXPLICIT LANGUAGE PLEASE DO NOT VIEW.

    I have spent many years on and off of JDate.  It is a necessary evil in the modern day search for love.  For someone...

  • I Don’t Want to Date a Republican!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 23, 2012 | 9:15 am

    As a lifelong Democrat, I never thought I would be in this place.  I never thought I would have to confront this dreaded unforeseen fear - the terror that is for me, dating a Republican.  I don’t even know very many Republicans.  But it turns out, I’m not alone.  Outside of...

  • Did Online Dating Just Get Safer?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 21, 2012 | 10:52 pm

    Online dating kings Match.com, eharmony.com and Spark Network, which owns and operates JDate, have agreed to start screening for sex offenders, in addition to other “safety precautions”, in order to help their clients. Their goal is to help their consumers guard against sexual...

  • Alexa N.

    March 21, 2012 | 2:01 pm

    Alexa initially wrote to me because she was interested in one of my single peeps. She attached a picture of herself — a headshot, where she looked like she was 14 years old. My friend never responded, probably fearful of getting arrested on a date with a ninth-grader. But I invited...

  • Two Blind Dates: One Epic Failure & One Winner

    By Ilana Angel

    March 15, 2012 | 10:08 pm

    I had two dates last week with two completely different men. While both lovely, they could not be more opposite.  Date #1 was with a financial advisor.  He is just shy of 6 feet tall, has a full head of salt and pepper hair, dark brown eyes, divorced with 3 kids, and 56 years old. ...

  • Is Marriage Like Prison?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 1, 2012 | 11:33 am

    I had an interesting discussion about marriage today.  I was talking to a man in his 50’s who is divorced and dating.  He is Jewish, educated, successful, funny, handsome, and a failure at marriage.  We’ll call him Moshe. Moshe can clearly remember the moment that his wife, his soul...

  • Ruthie B.

    February 23, 2012 | 10:00 am

    Ruthie, who is 81 now, was raised in Chicago. An abused child, she was sent away to live on a farm called Glen Eyrie in Delavan, Wis. “You know what it was like in the ’30s if you had a mean mother — no one talked about it. I know how to milk cows, kill chickens.”

    Although...

  • Being Sad, the End of an Era & Sex with Trolls

    By Ilana Angel

    February 16, 2012 | 10:32 am

    I have been sad for a couple of days.  Not depressed, just sad.  It was the anniversary of my dad’s passing, my son is growing up, I miss my family, and I have decisions to make about my work, but none of that is the cause of my sadness.  I was just sad.  I have been crying easily...

  • Dating Sucks but LA Singles Rock

    By Ilana Angel

    February 13, 2012 | 2:41 am

    This past Saturday night, the Jewish Journal held its first singles event and I was honored to be a part of it.  By a part of it of course I mean this was my baby and I was thrilled with how the event turned out.  It was the forward thinking of Rob Eshman and David Suissa that...

  • Why Do I Date Online?

    By Ilana Angel

    February 3, 2012 | 11:16 am

    I often get asked why I date online.  It’s a good question to which there is no answer.  Well there are answers of course, but they are all lies.  “It’s easy.”  No it’s not.  “It’s fun”. No it’s not.  “It can work”.  No it can’t. Online dating is the...

  • Dating Sucks Singles Event

    By Ilana Angel

    January 27, 2012 | 8:33 am

    For those of us who are searching for our beshert, we pray that every first date will be our last.  Being set up, dating online, or hitting the bars are all horrible, but not as bad as going to a singles event.

    Until now.

    The first of The Jewish Journal’s singles events is...

  • How to Not Get a 2nd Date

    By Ilana Angel

    January 24, 2012 | 2:47 pm

    I had a date over the weekend with a guy we’ll call “Dick”.  He wrote to me online, and after a couple of email exchanges we spoke on the phone and made a plan to meet for a drink.  He seemed like a nice enough man and I was looking forward to meeting him.  Not really my type...

  • Gary L.

    January 11, 2012 | 7:05 pm

    Gary’s brother, Jason, is a recent single peep. And, like Jason, Gary’s a nice, easygoing guy. But, he tells me, this wasn’t always the case. In college, just as he was launching an online magazine, his personality started to shift. He became moody and paranoid, and he was...

  • Lunch with the Enemy

    By Ilana Angel

    January 10, 2012 | 11:43 pm

    I had lunch today with a new friend.  It’s rather interesting that we are friends actually because before I even met her, I was certain I would not like her.  She is young, beautiful, talented, Jewish, and while almost 20 years younger than me, in the same dating pool.  Of course I...

  • Why You Date Who You Date

    By Ilana Angel

    January 4, 2012 | 12:17 pm

    The New Year marks my return to dating.  After a bit of a break I’m ready to jump back in.  By a break of course I mean one bad date too many put me over the edge.  I was either going to get another cat and never date, or walk away, regroup, and try again with a fresh...

  • Rejection Collection

    By Elliot Steingart

    December 14, 2011 | 11:55 am

    I’m like the Brett Favre of OkCupid, a grizzled veteran hoping for one last shot of glory.  I thought I could reclaim some of the magic from my earlier days of internet dating. This time I think I’m calling it quits. As I prepare for retirement, and meet women the natural way (at...

  • Patti Stanger vs. The Millionaire Matchmaker

    By Ilana Angel

    December 8, 2011 | 9:37 am

    Millionaire Matchmaker is a difficult show to watch because everyone on this show is a little odd.  From the staff, to the daters, to the fake clients, to Patti Stanger, nobody is believable or particularly interesting.  The main issue I have with this show is Patti and how...

  • Kissing Strangers

    By Ilana Angel

    December 1, 2011 | 12:47 am

    Before we tackle this subject I think we need to establish how important kissing is.  For me, I can fall for a man based on just one kiss.  Sadly I can also dump a man based on just one kiss.  I believe you can tell a lot about a man by how he kisses.  Kissing is a powerful thing and...

  • Single, Happy, Hopeful & Strutting

    By Ilana Angel

    November 30, 2011 | 9:12 am

    I am in a dating slump and frankly have no real interest in getting out of it. I had a date last week that was completely uneventful, and when I came across someone online I thought looked interesting, it turned out he was a reader of my blog and while a fan, was not brave enough to...

  • 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,...

  • The Joy and Fear of Dating When You Have a Blog About Dating

    By Ilana Angel

    November 5, 2011 | 1:07 pm

    I don’t like dating.  I do it because I am looking for someone to share my life with, not because I think it is fun.  Each first date is stressful.  Will I like him?  Will he like me?  Will I be safe?  Will this be a disaster, or the last first date that I ever have to go on? ...

  • Altara M.

    November 2, 2011 | 2:58 pm

    Altara is an only child, raised in New York. She wants to find a man from the East Coast. And when she wants something, she goes after it. That’s how she got in this column.

    “At 27, I bought myself a little Mercedes. I focused on something I was really good at. I sold...

  • Michele K.

    October 26, 2011 | 5:49 pm

    As soon as Michele sits down with me, she says, “I’m crap at talking about myself.” Hear it with a British accent, and it’s 10 times cuter. I’ve known Michele for years — she’s a friend of a friend — and I realize I don’t know a whole lot about her. She really is...

  • JDate study claims more Jewish marriage matches than its competitors

    By Danielle Berrin

    October 26, 2011 | 4:07 pm

    The Jewish dating Web site JDate recently announced results from a study that claims the site is responsible for facilitating more Jewish marriages than all other dating Web sites combined. The study, commissioned in-house by JDate’s parent company, Spark Networks, and conducted by...

  • Even a Good Girl Looks Like a Hooker When Her Date is 36 Minutes Late

    By Ilana Angel

    October 23, 2011 | 8:47 pm

    I had a date on Saturday night with a man we’ll call “Sparky”.  I chose this moniker not because it is a cute name for a puppy, thus implying he is a dog, but rather because both on the phone, and in person, we had a spark.  I am sarcastic and rather quick witted so when I meet...

  • GifelteBitch

    By Elliot Steingart

    October 21, 2011 | 5:27 pm

    Since my last relationship ended two years ago, I have dated a lot of girls from OKCupid.  If OkCupid had frequent flier miles I’d have enough miles to fly to Bangkok.

    I don’t exclusively date Jewish girls, but there are plenty from which to choose on OKCupid. It’s where I met...

  • Libby E.

    October 11, 2011 | 4:49 pm

    Out of all that Libby says to me when we meet, this seems the most unnecessary: “I have a strong personality. I’m not a wallflower. I’m not a shrinking violet.” She is very clearly none of these things.  She is confident, smart and an alpha female. Yet, she says, “I think...

  • Author charged in Jewish online dating service scam

    October 9, 2011 | 7:25 pm

    American author Mitchell Gross was indicted for allegedly scamming women he met on an online Jewish dating service.

    Gross, 61, of Marietta, Ga., pleaded not guilty to fraud and money laundering charges when he was arraigned late last week in federal court in Atlanta, according to...

  • 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...
