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

Sasha Answers: Can I change my nickname?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 7, 2013 19:34:41 January 7, 2013 19:34:41

I'm an adult professional and my nickname is kind of childish.  I didn't choose it, and it just keeps self-perpetuating.  I would like a nickname that isn't so childish sounding.  Can I do this? I'm worried that it's a touch ridiculous to tell everybody to call you something different at this stage in the game (I'm 31). Full Article

The series is called "Namasté's blog", about a 13-year-old who shares her life problems (:o)) on a blog: parents, school friends, boys. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Holiday gathering guest list

Sasha Posted by Sasha at December 17, 2012 18:38:25 December 17, 2012 18:38:25

Hi- I am trying to figure out if it’s too rude to exclude certain guests from my Xmas family gathering. My brother is divorced and has a young daughter.  He and I are not that close and he can be dry and sort of obnoxious at times.  He has a girlfriend.  She is nice enough. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Joint Accounts

Sasha Posted by Sasha at December 17, 2012 18:24:11 December 17, 2012 18:24:11

So my guy and I have been married a little over a year now. I'm still confused as to how we go about merging, or not merging, our finances? We each have separate accounts and we split bills 50/50. These expenses have increased heavily after buying a home and wedding spending. I am a junior in my job and make far less than him. Full Article
