I just landed a new position where I have the freedom to work from home.  I still take my son to daycare, but I find myself feeling an obligation to be completely tied to my computer, worried that my employer will think I'm not actually working. What is the expectation for telecommuters, and how do I stop feeling like I'm not doing enough?


I'm a 27-year-old woman, and I've been dating a younger guy for the past few months. We are definitely in different places in our lives, and I'm not sure how to reconcile our different experiences with the fact that we have fun when we're together. How young is too young?


Dear Miriam,

I work in a casual office, but I usually dress up on Fridays so that I can go to shul directly after work. When co-workers ask if I'm dressed up for a party or a date, I tell them that it's for synagogue — but I feel awkward mentioning my religious observance. Is that weird?

Need Some Advice?
