Miriam's Advice Well answers the question: Do I say yes to intimacy even when I don't feel like it?

Dear Miriam,

My husband and I have both been super stressed at work lately, and we're looking to get away for a weekend. Do you have any ideas for places we could go? Once we're there, how do we make the most of the time we have?

Signed,
Weekend Away


Dear Away,...

Dear Miriam,

How do I let my partner know that he is giving gifts that HE wants, rather than things I want, especially when the gifts are given with much enthusiasm and love?

Whose gift is it anyway?

Dear Miriam,

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.

Signed,
Not Feeling It

Profile

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.

I work full time 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 two beautiful children.
