My gut reaction to the whole thing was that it was just too weird. I know you can’t change what your parents do, but you can choose not to film it! But I did really connect with the guy and one of my girlfriends thinks that I should admire the fact he was so supportive of his mother. Should I go out on another date with him?
Snow, sleet and ice, day and night, and the weatherman says there’s no end to this winter in sight! If these frustrating and often brutal cold snaps throughout much of North America are numbing your bones and senses, you ought to consider defrosting your engine. So hang up those mittens and try heading to one of these warm-up winter spots.
Sliders or mini burgers are perfect for football’s biggest game, or anytime you want a flavorful, but not too hefty portion. I love the big juicy flavor of the spicy skirt steak but definitely want to save room for dessert.

Dear Matchmaker Rabbi:
I’ve been dating this very gorgeous and dedicated guy I’ll call Joshua for about a year, but he isn’t Jewish. I like him a lot, but I’m not sure if I should continue seeing him since I know I want to marry someone Jewish.
Mandelbrodt, or almond bread, is an Ashkenazi confection that is usually twice baked. Similar to Italian Biscotti, Mandelbread are formed into loaves, sliced and baked. To keep the Mandelbread pareve, use dark chocolate for dipping instead of white.
Pretending to be busy just to play hard-to-get, showing you don’t care when you really do (Hillary’s default strategy), or trying to be someone that you’re not — can all backfire. By acting hard-to-get, when in fact what you truly crave is closeness, consistency and stability, you may end up attracting the exact person who is least likely to make you happy – someone avoidant—who doesn’t feel comfortable being close and prefers to keep you at arms length.
Would you ever go to a wedding without bringing a gift? I’d sooner show up to a black-tie affair in a Speedo®. Yet, a few people came to my wedding metaphorically nude – without even bringing a card. And I’m not sure if I have any right to be annoyed.
Professional wedding photographers should have an extensive portfolio filled with lots of brides and grooms. If you see the same couple over and over in a portfolio that is a huge tell-tale sign that you might be looking at a new photographer. A photographer’s portfolio should be rich and diverse. They should have a well branded website, living blog and contact information readily available.
I recently began dating a woman I’ll call Sue whom I met on JDate. It appeared we have a lot in common. I’m a psychotherapist, and so is she. We are both vegetarians. We both love to hike, etc. We had two dates; the second one extended into hours of talking and sharing stories. It ended with a very passionate kiss and a hug. We tentatively scheduled a third date, but she said she would need to confirm something with her schedule.
