Hi Sasha, My question is this: if you have a close friend or a relative who works in a fee- or commission-based industry, are you obligated to use him/her for their service? For example, if my brother is a real estate agent, am I obligated to buy a house through him? Or if a good friend is a hairstylist, am I obligated to go to her? What’s the thing to do? Suck it up for the sake of the relationship or do what you want/think is right? Thanks T ___ The adage “don't go into business with friendship” exists for good reason because there will always be two major issues at stake – friendship and money. Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I are expecting our second child - another boy - this spring. Our front runner for baby # 2 is Nolan - likely to be the eventual winner but I don't like officially naming a baby until it's here. I'm a little perplexed by middle names. Neither my middle name, nor my sister's have any significance and my parents were never given middle names by their parents, but ended up just picking one themselves. Full Article

Hi Sasha, BFF and I have an extremely close friendship (even as BFF-ships go) and we always have. In the 10+ years of our friendship, we've also both been generally single, mostly by choice. I am still very happily single. My BFF has just gotten into a serious relationship, however, and I'm freaking out. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I don't know what to do about my best friend, E. She was not-quite dating her other best friend, A, but they are basically estranged at the moment while A tries to deal with whatever mental health issues cause her to be abusive to E. Since they made this decision to barely talk, E and I have been sleeping together. Full Article

Hi Hayley! I've been pretty active and working on my health for probably the last six years — since my first year of university. I've gotten to a weight I'm happy with, and I'm not so much worried about weight loss than my shape and tone, but sometimes I feel like if I do too much cardio with running or spinning, my muscle percentage suffers. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I’m wondering about making the most of a silver lining. I got sick while travelling and picked up a particularly nasty bug that hung on for two weeks.
