  • Dating 101: I’m Jewish, Not Really

    By Ilana Angel

    June 23, 2013 | 1:55 pm

    For the love of God, I honestly do not know how much longer I can date.  It is required of course because I want to meet someone, but with each bad date I am one step closer to channeling my inner lesbian and dating women, or perhaps just getting a box of chocolate, a cat, and...

  • Birthdays, Dating & a Twitter Support Group

    By Ilana Angel

    April 3, 2012 | 10:38 pm

    This weekend will mark my 46th birthday.  I don’t feel 46, or look 46, but I will in fact be 46.  I can vividly remember when my mother turned 35 and I thought she was the oldest person in the world.  My mother is only 22 years older than I am.  I have dated men who were 22 years...

  • 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

    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...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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...
