  • My Hiatus from Online Dating Sadly, and Thankfully, Comes to an End

    By Ilana Angel

    September 26, 2011 | 10:36 am

    I have not had a date in 2 weeks.  One crazy date too many put me over the edge, and I had to walk away from it all.  I simply could not handle going out on another nightmare.  I knew I hit the wall when a man contacted me online and his email made me sick.  Everything he wrote made...

  • Sept. 18 – 24 is National Unmarried & Single Americans Week

    By Ilana Angel

    September 18, 2011 | 6:25 pm

    Did you know that this week even existed?  According to CelebrateLove.Com, National Unmarried & Single Americans Week was started in Ohio in 1980. The website states that there are about 82 million single and unmarried people in the United States.  Really?  They also say that there...

  • 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...

  • Online Dating Hell: 5 Things Men Should Never Share on a First Date

    By Ilana Angel

    September 4, 2011 | 10:37 am

    I had a date this week with a very interesting man.  He was 45, never married, and Jewish. During our emails, and phone conversations, I found him to be charming and funny.  His laugh was very sweet and I felt comfortable with him.  We spoke a couple of times and made a date for...

  • My Cynical & Jaded Online Dating Butt Just Got Kicked by a Kid

    By Ilana Angel

    August 31, 2011 | 12:06 pm

    I wrote a while back about a man named Dave who wrote me 4 times on an online dating site with the same message.  It was so sad that it became funny, and after I wrote back to a couple of his emails telling him I appreciated the interest but did not feel we were a match, I gave up...

  • Can Match.com save you from dating a sex offender?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 24, 2011 | 10:28 pm

    Match.com has agreed that they will start screening their members to ensure they are not sex offenders.  While it is certainly a nice gesture, and one that will protect people, it is not going to make a tangible difference in how people date online.  At the end of the day, people...

  • Statistically, how many online female daters want to impale themselves?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 22, 2011 | 9:44 pm

    I have received an email from a man on an online dating site, 3 times.  Yes, the exact same email, for 3 straight days, from the same man.  It reads: You look and sound terrific. I would love to meet and talk with you on the phone. Take care Dave.  I have replied all 3 times with a...

  • Am I One Date Away from Prince Charming or Being a Cat Lady?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 18, 2011 | 9:20 am

    I had a date last night.  He was from JDate and when we spoke on the phone it appeared we had things in common.  As you may know, I am not a fan of pre-dating, so we only spoke once and made plans to meet for dinner. It turns out that we really had very little in common.

    I...

  • J Keith

    August 17, 2011 | 10:53 am

    When I first met J Keith, I found his personality really grating. A friend brought him to a softball game my wife and I used to organize every Sunday. He was competitive and started to take over the game. I’m not competitive.  I’m not a huge fan of sports. But I loved our low-key...

  • Can we talk about Sex?

    By Ilana Angel

    August 12, 2011 | 12:12 pm

    As my online dating life in hell continues, I cannot help but think about sex and the role it plays in my dating, and search for a relationship.  Whether or not I give it power is irrelevant, because when it comes down to the basics, is it going to be the most important aspect of...

  • We Have a New Winner! Worst Online Date Ever

    By Ilana Angel

    August 10, 2011 | 9:07 am

    I should have known better than to go on JDate again.  I have never had luck there, and after quitting for good, I joined for one month because Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York City told me I needed to give it another shot.  I love you Jill, but huge mistake.

  • Single Mother or Single Woman?

    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2011 | 7:16 pm

    It is Saturday afternoon and I am once again contemplating my dating life. Never a good thing.  While at Whole Foods today, a man approached me and asked if I was Ms. Angel.  When it was established that I was the Ms. Angel from The Jewish Journal, he asked if he could buy me a...

  • Rules of Dating & Sex

    By Ilana Angel

    July 20, 2011 | 9:30 am

    Monday was a great day.  I was a guest host on the Keeping It Real Radio Show with Aaron McCargo Jr. and Robert Flutie.  I had the best time and thanks to all my readers who tuned in to the show, and took the time to write me about it.  It was really wonderful to hear from all of...

  • A Dating Question:  When is it Okay to Have a Conversation About Sex?

    By Ilana Angel

    July 18, 2011 | 12:12 am

    I met an interesting man online this weekend.  He was funny, educated, Jewish, handsome and charming.  He was married for 25 years and is now divorced.  We emailed, and then spoke on the phone.  It was good, until we got to the topic of sex, and I’m not exactly sure how we even got...

  • Abby L.

    June 28, 2011 | 3:18 pm

    Abby came to me via her mother, who e-mailed me after reading a My Single Peeps column. Abby, who is 34 and a stand-up comic, says she asked her mom — a founder of the Malibu Jewish Center & Synagogue — to use her contacts to hook her up with someone like David Letterman....

  • Nicole M.

    May 31, 2011 | 6:33 pm

    My first impression of Nicole, when she met me at my local Starbucks, was how adult-like she seems. I know that sounds silly — seeing as she’s a 31-year-old woman — but I’m 36, and my mannerisms probably haven’t changed a whole lot since I was a teenager. I still beatbox to...

  • Lisa B.

    May 3, 2011 | 6:32 pm

    Here are 13 things about Lisa she wants you to know:

    1. I am a huge astronomy lover and own the original Chicago Tribune when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, July 20, 1969. 

    2. I have revised this list 9 times. Niiinnnee timmmess. 

    3. I have severe disdain toward shorthand...

  • 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...

  • Online Dating: Behind the Scenes

    By Melanie Reynard

    June 21, 2010 | 1:14 pm

    Online dating is a hot topic, a sub-culture in of itself.  But imagine the people who are behind it.  The people for whom coming up with new strategies and applications and designs for online dating is their job.

    I got a peek into this culture on Friday at the 7th annual West Coast...

  • Campus hate—while down —is still a problem, wailin’ on Palin

    September 11, 2008 | 12:54 am

    Quiet War at UCI

    We agree with the Sept 5 letter from five UCLA academics that anti-Zionism/anti-Semitism at UCLA is less severe than that at UC Irvine ("Quiet War on Campus," Aug. 22).

    However we commend The Journal for running [Brad] Greenberg's review of the situation on...
  • Give me a happy ending

    By Shoshana Lewin-Fischer

    January 4, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    I'm so happy that my parents are happy. Each of them are very much in love -- just not with the other.

    My father has been with his girlfriend, Joan, for 3 1/2 years; my mother has been with her boyfriend, Paul, for 1 1/2 years. And as is often the case with children of divorced...

  • Cool Songs? It’s a Miracle!

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    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...

  • Picture Imperfect

    By Andrew Wallenstein

    February 5, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    Although we had never met, I knew I would have no trouble recognizing Brenda the second she walked into the Melrose Avenue bar where I sat waiting for her. After all, it was her photograph -- the leonine curve of her green eyes and coquettish cap of blond curls -- that compelled me...
