Abigail in Love (Maybe)

Would A Crystal Ball Into Our Future Make Dating More Fun?

You know how a certain image just gets burned in your memory?

Here’s one of mine.

A bunch of years ago, when I worked at a library in Chicago, a colleague came into my office. She was in her mid-30s, very lovely, and had had a tough time finding her missing link.

The 'Club Foot' School of Dating

A girlfriend was filling me on her latest set-up date.

"Turns out he's pushing 50!" said my 30-something friend.

She named a few more, let's call them "surprises."

Battle of the Sexes: Revisited

I hadn’t heard from my most recent date in a few days and was starting to develop a complex.

Was I doing something wrong to scare these men off?

Dating Amnesia: The Only Way to Survive

"I think I have no short-term memory," I told a girlfriend recently.

Or a long-term memory. But that's another story.

I had one of Oprah’s “Aha!” moments this morning while giving Mister Trevor Dog his vitamin C, fish oil, vitamin e, glucosamine…

Now I know Where the Boys Are

I couldn’t believe my four eyes.

Which is another way of saying, there were so many men at this rooftop party in Tel Aviv – So many single men! So many straight, single men! So many non-religious, straight, single men! – that I nearly passed out from the shock of it all!

Back in the Driver's Seat, Again!

“How are you, Avigail?” my driving teacher asked, full of good cheer.

“Tired!” I said, grumpily.

And why shouldn’t I be? It was 8:30 pm after all, the time of evening that any decent person would be home, having a lie down after a long day at work.

Does Anyone Have the Guidebook on the Israeli Male?

I’m a bit weak in the knees for a film critic named Uri Klein.

I mean, the guy’s a genius. An absolute, honest to Hashem genius.
