I've gone on three dates with a great girl who's smart, interesting, kind and pretty, but I don't necessarily feel the romantic chemistry. Should I call her and tell her this? Should I email her? I really want to do the right thing.
When is the right time in a relationship to change your Facebook status from "single" to "in a relationship?" How do you change your status back after a relationship ends without causing too many waves? This is always coming up in my group of friends and has led to a lot of awkward situations.
In honor of my birthday (today!), the one-year anniversary of starting Miriam's Advice Well and my second pregnancy, I thought I'd share my thoughts about how to talk to pregnant women. If you're also pregnant, a close personal friend, or my parents, feel free to sit back smugly and appreciate how much more sensitive you are than the strangers, barely-acqaintances and bus riders I'm about to lambast.
I have been dating my boyfriend for nine months now, and I'm meeting many members of his family in a couple of weeks at his niece's third birthday party. I would love suggestions for appropriate gifts to give a three-year-old, but my main question is this: Should I get the six-month-old nephew a present, too? I don't want to overdo it and come across like I'm trying too hard, but I also want to make a good first impression. What do you think?
I am extremely proud to be both a member of the Philadelphia young adult Jewish community and a professional working to make the community the best it can be.
My full time job is as the director of Hillel of Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish Graduate Student Network.
My husband, Marc, likes to say that I knew more people within a week of moving to Philadelphia than he knew after six years here.
I’m originally from the tiny town of Fredonia, NY, and sometimes I still stare at the skyscrapers and marvel at how many Jews I know.
I am a co-founder of Minyan Tikvah (a lay-led prayer group in Center City Philadelphia that meets once a month for traditional egalitarian Shabbat services), a founder of and matchmaker for GradMatch.org, a children’s book reviewer, a former elementary school teacher, a pretty decent cook and a mom to an amazing little baby girl.
