    By Ilana Angel

    September 23, 2013 | 7:48 am

    On Saturday I did not get out of bed until almost 9 in the evening.  I got up, had a cup of tea, and went straight back to bed.  I didn’t answer my phone except to talk with my son who was with his dad for a couple of days.  I slept, read, prayed, and tried to get a little...

    Just when I think my dating life cannot get any stranger, it does.  I have been chronicling my dating life for four years.  In that time I have had the most horrific dates ever, along with a long term relationship, and I shared it all.  From the man who arrived to our date drunk...

    How is it possible that a large group of men can all suffer from the same disorder and not be aware of it?  Jewish men are simply unable to give their correct height.  Why?  If they are 5’4”, they say 5’7”.  If they are 5’7”, they say they are 5’10”.  If they are 5’10”, they...

    Do you ever take stock of your life?  I don’t really look at my life in terms of an arc of time, but I am aware of how fortunate I am and the blessing I have been given.  I am also aware of my struggles and how certain aspects of my life are difficult.  It is that awareness that...

  • One Mother, One Child, One Fear, One Day

    I sometimes feel very alone in terms of my life as a mother.  I don’t always relate to other moms.  I often think people just don’t get how hard it is to be a single mom, or even how much joy I get from being the mother to only one child.  I am raising him alone and it is hard.  It...

    After 7 months of dating, and a slow and steady stroll to love, the Englishman is taking my son and me to England to meet his family for two weeks in December.  By slow and steady, of course I mean that I have loved him since our first date, but it took me months to allow myself to...

    I am heading home to Canada today.  It is the first time I am going home to see my family in 2 years.  My mother has been here to see me, but I’ve not been to see my siblings, nieces or nephews.  I love them all very much and this is too long to not see them.  Not only am I going...

    By Ilana Angel

    April 15, 2012 | 1:08 pm

    Dating is hard.  Dating with young children is harder.  Dating with older children in nerve wracking.  My son is 16 and now has opinions about who I date.  He wants me to be happy and is very protective of my heart.  He has seen it get broken and so he wants to make sure I date...

    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...

    My son has now been away on vacation for 26 days.  It has been the longest 26 days of my life.  I’ve been counting down until he gets home and I am thrilled to say he will finally be back in just 5 days.  I am so excited I could scream.  He is having a fabulous time, and I am happy...

    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...
