  • Renata r.

    June 12, 2013 | 5:04 pm

    Woven into the right side of Renata’s curly hair are white strands stripped of color. She has vitiligo, but it didn’t reveal itself until she was under some stress about four years ago. I love how it looks. She does, too. She’s not uptight about things like that. This surprises me....

  • Barbara H.

    May 29, 2013 | 3:33 pm

    Barbara, 36, grew up in Boca Raton — interestingly, in one of the only areas of Boca with very few Jews. “We were one of 10 Jewish kids in my elementary school. We were on the countryside of Boca — the west-west-westside.

    “I went to theater camp when I was 14, which kind of saved...

  • To Date or Not To Date?

    By Ilana Angel

    April 29, 2013 | 12:01 am

    It has been a few weeks since the Englishman decided to not only break up with me, but to no longer be my friend. It has been shocking really, and I cannot stop crying.  Not at the loss of love, which is sad, but at the loss of friendship, which it turns out must not have been...

  • Ruth M.

    January 30, 2013 | 4:06 pm

    Ruth is an attractive, petite woman who’s spent her life working in publishing. She’s from the East Coast and went to college in Syracuse, graduating with a major in advertising and a minor in painting. She worked in New York as an art director for Modern Bride magazine, but moved...

  • David Henry G.

    January 16, 2013 | 1:08 pm

    David, 27, seems to be brimming with confidence. He’s got a good, deep voice, and he’s still when he speaks. I fidget. My fingers or toes are generally wiggling, and I shift my position constantly. It suddenly dawns on me — I’m jealous. Why can’t I be as sure of myself?

    “I’m from...

  • Francesca L.

    January 9, 2013 | 12:04 pm

    Francesca, a British woman I’m pegging to be in her late 30s, shows up wearing gloves. She seems flustered. She’s holding a notepad full of notes and a Broadway-style hat. She tells me she just reviewed a “Frank Sinatra show” and was inspired to wear a hat. Realizing the hat’s...

    Dedicated to the life and memory of journalist Daniel Pearl, this October music month features concerts across the globe, including today’s performance of “Songs of Salomone Rossi: Harmony for Humanity” by Tesserae at...

  • My Single Peeps: Brandon B.

    August 15, 2012 | 1:26 pm

    Brandon’s an only child. He tells me he’s the kind of kid who kept to himself. “I didn’t break out of my shell until late in high school. I’m still kind of introverted, but an outgoing introvert, if that makes sense.”

    “How’d you break out in high school?” I ask....

  • My Single Peeps: Mike K.

    July 25, 2012 | 2:23 pm

    I generally don’t meet people at their offices. I feel it’s best to get to know them in a neutral place, like a coffee shop. But Mike told me he worked in porn, and the deviant in me was intrigued. Suffice it to say, his office might as well have sold paper supplies, it was that...

  • Israel is swamped with singles

    June 27, 2012 | 4:16 pm

    Israelis are known for their gregarious behavior and love nothing more than spending time with their group of close friends. It’s a trait that is wreaking havoc among the quickly mushrooming singles population and threatens to have long-range anthropological effects on Israel’s...

  • 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...

  • Karen B.

    June 13, 2012 | 3:12 pm

    Karen got divorced a year and a half ago. “I think at first it was hard to come to terms with — ‘I’m divorced.’ It had a kind of negative connotation, but now I look at it like I’m an experienced person. I know exactly what I want. I know exactly what I don’t want. And...

  • To Live Together or Not To Live Together. That Is the Question

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    April 19, 2012 | 2:58 pm

    The New York Times had a thoughtful article in it last week on co-habitation and about five different people emailed it to me, as just a few days earlier my boyfriend had officially popped the question.  No, not that passé question of marriage that all Baby Boomer parents are...

  • The Bachelor: Women Tell Nothing

    By Ilana Angel

    March 6, 2012 | 2:51 am

    This is my least favorite episode of every season.  I get annoyed by the constant recapping and pissed off that in a two hour show, there is only about 30 minutes of original footage, with a bunch of clips.  Then to make it even more painful, we are shown a Bachelor Whore Reunion in...

  • Won’t You Be Mine?

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 14, 2012 | 5:29 pm

    There was a time in my life when Valentine’s Day really mattered to me.  Now that I’m in love and in the best relationship I’ve ever been in, I keep forgetting about it.  In fact, I accidentally made plans with a girlfriend last week to get together tonight not remembering what...

  • The Last Taboo: The Lord Shall Preserve Thee From All Evil

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    February 13, 2012 | 9:15 am

    My boyfriend and I were in a car accident this weekend.  We both are fine.  Nothing more than a few bruises on us.  The cars were not so lucky, though of course we know it could have been much worse.  But when the storm had passed, the incident afforded me an unexpected peak into an...

  • 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...

  • Single for the Holidays vs. Desperate Online Dating

    By Ilana Angel

    December 8, 2011 | 12:44 am

    I love the holidays.  From the sound of kids laughing at Hanukkah, the smell of latkes, Christmas carols in the mall, gorgeous wrapping paper, Kleenex and diamond commercials that make me cry, to people being in the holiday spirit, it all makes me happy.  There is something magical...

  • Singletown

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    October 27, 2011 | 5:48 pm

    I’ve gotten the distinct feeling lately that as my relationship has gotten more serious, there are a couple people in my life that seem to prefer that I be single.  Early in my relationship, I had a few reservations that I discussed with friends – they seem trivial and...

  • Rachel C.

    September 20, 2011 | 7:47 pm

    A close friend e-mailed me that he thought Rachel would be good for My Single Peeps.  “I think you guys will hit it off well, as you have a lot in common — a dead dad, childhood ADD, you both write and act, and you’re ‘good people.’ ”

    Like me, Rachel moved from the...

  • 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...

  • Benson S.

    August 31, 2011 | 9:54 am

    Benson was born in Canada. “I call it Poland, because the winters are so bad.” He asks me about myself, and when I answer, he lifts his hands in the air and waves his fingers at me. He’s sending me “blessings,” he says. He has this spiritual/guru kind of bent to everything...

  • 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.

    July 29, 2011 | 10:43 am

    It is Friday and I have never looked so forward to a weekend in my life.  My son will be home from vacation on Monday and so this weekend will undoubtedly be painfully long.  I am so excited for him to come home I could bust.  It has been 4 weeks and I want him back.

    I was thinking...

  • Intermingling Marriages

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 30, 2011 | 10:43 am

    I am back from my whirlwind weekend in France.  My job as Demoiselle d’honneur is officially over.  And Tess is a wife.

    Going into this weekend, I didn’t really think that a French groom and an American bride would lead to a large culture clash.  It wasn’t like Tess was...

  • A Single Mom, Summer Vacation, Crying, Irrational Behavior & Being Single

    By Ilana Angel

    June 30, 2011 | 8:59 am

    I have been a single mother since my son was six months old.  My entire life is wrapped around this boy and my heart functions because of him.  I’m not kidding.  My decisions for myself are made with him in mind, and the choices I make put him and his needs first.  That’s just...

    I am trying something new here, and taking my Matchmaking to a new level a little bit.  I will be posting pictures and information of my singles on here.  If you are interested to get in touch with them, put a comment or send an email to me with your information and I will get you in...

  • Well, At Least She Called Me Skinny…

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    June 22, 2011 | 10:00 am

    So I was just about to post regarding the dinner I just had with my new inamorato and my parents, when I noticed Ilana Angel had already posted on me.  We met for lunch yesterday and I knew she would write about it but I’m still a bit shocked at how much my earlier pieces must have...

    The

    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...

  • Grown-up Proms

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 11, 2011 | 10:07 am

    This Saturday night, I was at a fundraising dinner at the Beverly Hilton for my graduate school.  As a screenwriter who writes often about teenagers, you should trust me when I tell you just about every movie about teenagers culminates with a prom.  Prom is a big deal in high school...
