  • Dating 101: Men, Makeup & Nerves

    By Ilana Angel

    December 27, 2013 | 8:21 am

    I had a date last night with a man I met on Match.com. He is 52, 5’10”, dark hair, blue eyes, works in finance, divorced, two adult children, and a great sense of humor. We spoke on the phone twice and our conversations were short but fun.  We decided to meet for a drink. He...

  • Dating 101: Loving Kids When Love is Gone

    By Ilana Angel

    August 21, 2013 | 8:50 am

    I have had no contact with my ex-boyfriend for months.  I have spent all that time hopeful we would be able to be friends one day.  I truly thought our relationship was something special and we would be able to get over the hurt and come to a place of friendship.  It has not...

  • Dating 101: “Why Are You Single?”

    By Ilana Angel

    May 7, 2013 | 7:41 pm

    I never like it when men ask me why I am single, yet I recently asked a man that very question.  It is an odd question and should never be asked, except when discussing your love life with a therapist. There are only two ways to answer it, and both ways are never going to be good. ...

  • Divorce, Decisions, Heartbreak & Motherhood

    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2012 | 5:19 pm

    I have been divorced for 16 years.  I left my husband when my son was only a few months old and while it was very difficult, staying would have been harder.  I knew I needed to leave and if I hung on for my son he would not have been in a happy place.  In the end the marriage would...

  • Sex & Fantasies Over Lunch

    By Ilana Angel

    April 19, 2012 | 9:54 pm

    I had lunch today with two of my favorite people on the planet.  One is a woman who is 17 years younger than me, and the other is a man who is 17 years older than me.  We talked about work, families, life, Judaism, and sex. These two people are funny, smart, intellectual,...

  • A Conversation with Brandi Glanville

    By Ilana Angel

    January 12, 2012 | 6:25 pm

    This week I had to mail a couple of packages.  I waited in line at the post office for 15 minutes because it makes perfect sense that such a busy location would only have one employee working. When I finally got my turn, the woman who was “helping” me, was a complete moron.

    I...

  • Mothers, Fathers, Memories & Bar Mitzvahs

    By Ilana Angel

    December 8, 2011 | 10:06 pm

    When my doctor told me I was pregnant, I fainted.  I was 29 years old and my lifelong dream was to be a mother, so when it was confirmed, after years of trying, it was too much joy to handle I simply fainted.  It was a wonderful day and the love I felt for my child at that exact...

  • 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...

  • A Single Mom Weekend Retreat of Faith, Friendship and Learning

    By Ilana Angel

    November 10, 2011 | 2:28 am

    I was recently contacted by the BAIS CHANA ORGANIZATION about a retreat they were having for single Jewish moms.  It’s a brilliant idea, and I was intrigued by what they were planning.  It is taking place this weekend in Minnesota, and I was honored they invited me, but was sadly...

  • 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? ...

  • Thank you Steve Jobs.  Rest in Peace.

    By Ilana Angel

    October 5, 2011 | 9:30 pm

    Mr. Jobs passed away at the young age of 56.  He was a visionary who changed the world in a profound way.  Though not that savvy when it comes to technology, I know about the things he created, and how they changed the world.  While I cannot share details of the global impact of his...

  • 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...
