Hi Sasha, I'm relatively new to the dating scene after being in a long-term relationship. I've completed Grad school and earn a good living, above the average household income for my region. Is there an appropriate time to ask someone how much they earn? Of course, earning a high income doesn't equal responsibility or financial IQ, nor is this first date conversation, but it’s important and I'd ideally like the person I eventually end up in a serious relationship to not earn significantly less than me. Full Article

Hi Sasha, I have been living in a new flat since July and I'm having roommate problems that I desperately hope you can help with. My boyfriend and I live together in 1 room of the house and there are 2 other bedrooms, which the landlord stated at the outset would be occupied by only 1 tenant each as it's quite a small flat and 1 couple is enough. Full Article

Hi Sasha, I've been with my boyfriend for nearly 7 years now. We immigrated to Canada 4 years ago and are in a serious relationship - we've picked out my engagement ring and I know he is planning to propose when we go home for Christmas this year. We both work constantly and have since we moved, and as a result have little time for socializing and have only a few friends. Full Article

Hi Sasha, There is this great company that I really want to work for.  There were two positions available and one was perfect for me and one was perfect for my boyfriend.  By the time we decided to submit applications, the one I wanted was taken.  So I helped my bf with his resume and cover letter and we submitted his application. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I broke up with my boyfriend, C, in mid-June. After we broke up I rebounded with a guy, B. In early July I found out I was pregnant, with conception being sometime in June. B knew that the baby could belong to C.  I tried to make a relationship work with B, but the chemistry just wasn't there. Full Article

Dear Sasha, One of my best friends is having trouble with her other group of friends. Usually she would host pre drinks and some would crash at her place afterwards, however of late they have been choosing to drink and sleep elsewhere. I know she is a bit hurt and confused by this. I have a feeling it is because her apartment REEKS because she has a pet cat and is not very proactive about cleaning. Full Article

Hi Sasha, I had been dating this guy for a few months, and it was one of those whirlwind things. I prefer to take things slowly and build them up over time, but he was super intense about it and since I’m of the idea that I shouldn’t deny myself the chance to experience things differently, I decided to give it a go. Full Article

Dear Sasha, My boyfriend is 15 and I'm turning 15 in November. He’s my first boyfriend, but he’s had girlfriends before. We had sex for the first time not too long ago, and when he started, it hurt a lot and I told him to stop but he didn’t. I cried but he still didn’t stop. Full Article

Dear Sasha, How do I stop people-pleasing when it comes to one of my good friends (who happens to be one of the least self-aware people on earth)? Let me be clear here: I'm the one who has changed (mostly). My friend and I enjoyed one of those relationships with constant texting and hanging out. Full Article

Hi Sasha, I'm writing to you about my friend. You've heard this story before: she's pretty, smart, ambitious and could have any guy. However, the guys she picks are well, the exact opposite of her. She spent seven years in a relationship with a guy who spent all his time on his couch smoking pot, drawing heavily from the unemployment fund and bank of mom and dad. Full Article

About 2 years ago, I met “Brad” at a friend’s party. We hit it off immediately and there was a definite connection. Problem was, he had a girlfriend and a long-term one at that -- 9 years. So I stepped back, said a polite goodbye at the end of the evening and left it at that. Fast forward 8 months and I bump into Brad at the mall. Full Article

Hi Sasha My grandpa is a wonderful man, but he is in his mid 80s and drives quite recklessly. I'm so scared he will end up hurting someone and I don't know what to do because no one in my family is proactive about this. He's driven into side rails, barriers, poles, mailboxes, and my aunt's car. Full Article
