Sasha Answers: Another man’s baby

Sasha Posted by Sasha at February 4, 2013 17:20:11 February 4, 2013 17:20:11

Hi Sasha, I've known my boyfriend (T) for about 10 years now and been together on and off for about 4 years. We broke up again about 5 months ago and I had a one night stand with a friend of my best friend’s (let’s call him X), while I was broken up with my boyfriend. T and I got back together about 3 weeks ago, and I found out a couple of days ago that I was about two months pregnant, and I’m feeling completely gutted… I’m keeping the baby, but I’m very anxious to tell my boyfriend about it… We’ve always had plans to have a family, but that was supposed to happen later on, not when we’re both barely out of uni, and I’m still trying to figure out my career path… I haven’t told him about my one night stand, especially because he’s met X before, and doesn’t really like him, and things are now super weird between X and I… We’ve both been pretending nothing happened, and I haven’t told my best friend that I’ve slept with X either because she can be rather judgemental sometimes… I don’t plan on telling X I’m pregnant either because really, I don’t know him very well, but he’s a real mess, who can be a real jerk, and he’s far from being father-material… I’m afraid to tell my boyfriend because even though we were broken up when that happened, I still feel like I betrayed him… I feel like I’m running out of time and options… the “best” I’ve come up with is to wait a few weeks, and then tell my boyfriend I'm pregnant, so that there won’t be any questions as to who’s the father… I can’t think of any other options… and I don’t want to lose him… ___ You can keep secret all the hopes and dreams you want, but sometimes life doesn’t unfold the way you want it to and A, this is one of those times for you. Full Article

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 29, 2013 19:55:11 January 29, 2013 19:55:11

Hey Sasha!  I'm a 20-year-old college student who interns part time at a film/talent/model agency. I asked my boss if I could be reimbursed for my gas and valet tickets and he said of course. (I wouldn't have accrued those gas costs or valet tickets if it weren't for the tasks my boss gave me to do). Full Article

Sasha Answers: Avoiding my ex

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 28, 2013 19:06:47 January 28, 2013 19:06:47

Hi Sasha, I broke up with my boyfriend about 3 weeks ago after dating for 16 months. We have had little contact since but it was a pretty civil breakup.  I purchased us a cooking class gift certificate for which the date is coming up, since it is in my name I was planning on going with a friend but am nervous for an awkward encounter in case he shows up. Full Article

Sasha Answers: I drunk-kissed another guy

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 28, 2013 18:53:25 January 28, 2013 18:53:25

Sasha, this has been eating me up inside and I need advice. I have been dating my wonderful boyfriend for one year plus and things are great. It was serious from the beginning and I honestly think that I've found my match. We did long distance for six months and during that time, I f-cked up. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Nosy people asking about babies

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 22, 2013 19:14:20 January 22, 2013 19:14:20

Hi Sasha, I need some advice. My husband and I are dealing with infertility and are slowly working through our options. I'd be putting it lightly to say that we are both emotionally exhausted. We haven't told any of our family and only a few close friends. Over Christmas we found out that my sister-in-law is expecting. Full Article

Sasha Answers: 23 year old virgin

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 21, 2013 19:24:45 January 21, 2013 19:24:45

I’m 23 and a virgin. I’ve been casually seeing this guy (he’s 27) for about two months now. He’s really sweet, but apart from movies and tv shows, we don’t have all that much in common. We get along great and we never run out of things to talk about, and yet we haven’t really opened up about real personal stuff (I haven’t told him I’m still a virgin) and I only know his likes, dislikes and hobbies, not much about his family or friends, or childhood, or anything like that, and the same goes for him about me. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Desperate & Doomed

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 15, 2013 19:47:04 January 15, 2013 19:47:04

Dear Sasha, I've done despicable things, hurt a ton of people, trashed my life and painted myself into a corner. Three years ago, I met a wonderful man. We lived a perfect life, at least it seemed that way. I guess some things weren't right, but I couldn't put my finger on them. I shrugged it off and continued down the road of wedding planning, etc. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Should I nag?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 8, 2013 19:26:26 January 8, 2013 19:26:26

Hi Sasha, My guy and I are recently married but have been living together for years.  He was super busy with school for a long time so I shouldered the majority (all) the housework/life planning while working so he could get his education.  Now, he's done and also working full time.  The problem is I'm still doing all the housework/life planning. Full Article

Sasha Answers: She’s having a baby but I’m not

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 7, 2013 19:48:11 January 7, 2013 19:48:11

My husband's best friend (M) is dating a girl (R) who I have always been less than fond of.  I've tried to get along with her, but she's so abrasive and opinionated that I find it difficult to find anything redeeming in her.  Her and M have a terrible relationship - they have broken up SO many times over the few years they've been together and she treats M like total garbage. Full Article
