Dear Miriam,

I met a great guy online, and we recently went on our first date. His profile didn't specify his religion or profession, so I asked him about that early on in the date. Turns out, he's studying to be Christian clergy. We still had a good time, but I want to have a Jewish home, and I feel like his career path is a deal breaker. Also, don't you think he should have been upfront about this in his profile? He's willing to give "us" a shot, but I'm not sure that I am. In case it matters, I'm not planning to have kids regardless of who I end up with.

Dear Miriam,

You know that episode of "How I Met Your Mother," where Katie Holmes comes to the Halloween party dressed as "The Slutty Pumpkin?" Is there a Purim equivalent?

From funerals to weddings, I'm glad my first week as an advice columnist is covering the range of life-cycle events. I'm expecting questions on naming ceremonies and Bar Mitzvahs any day now. Keep the questions coming, and if you like what you see, send your friends to the site, too. 

Dear Miriam,...
