Dear Miriam, I'm living with a roommate, who I love, but the problem is her STUFF. It's everywhere, and there's a ton of it! I don't want to use the word hoarder, but we're getting there. How do I approach her gently, before we both get buried?

I know it's conventional wisdom that the guy should pay on the first date, but I disagree - I think it should be split 50/50. That being said, I can't find a single guy or girl who agrees with me. Speaking from a logical, feminist, 21st century perspective, aren't I right?
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.
