Sasha Answers: FWB and Feelings

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 11, 2012 21:36:00 September 11, 2012 21:36:00

Hi Sasha! Okay, so here's the deal. I've been in a friends with benefits relationship with this guy for a long time, too long really. It just turned into a stupid situation where I couldn't get away and kept going back even after repeatedly telling myself I was done.  Anyways, about a month ago we slept together again after several months of me actively trying to stay away from him. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Am I just a plant-sitter?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at September 10, 2012 20:35:26 September 10, 2012 20:35:26

Sasha, I've been dating this guy for about five months now and I've really fallen for him.  He's treated me so well and I find him funny, attractive, and all that other good stuff.  He just left to go visit home for a month, and he gave me a key to his place to plant-sit.  Last time I was there I was hanging out and watching some TV and went to check my phone and picked up his (extra) phone by accident. Full Article

Hi Sasha, I recently started a new job and as part of this I work closely with an external company who are based in a different city (2 hour train ride, maybe less). I speak to my contact at this company, lets call him John, several times a day, as well as emailing. About a week or two ago J emailed me a casual non work related email. Full Article

Sasha Posted by Sasha at August 28, 2012 18:41:41 August 28, 2012 18:41:41

I have been with my boyfriend for about 3 years and serious talks about engagement and marriage are taking place and things are going to happen soon.  He is incredibly wonderful in every way except for the matter of his female best friend.  You see, I have never met her, talked to her, or even engaged in any sort of communication with her. Full Article

Sasha Answers: The Dominant Friend

Sasha Posted by Sasha at August 27, 2012 17:36:54 August 27, 2012 17:36:54

Hi Sasha, We have a small tight group of friend’s guys and girls, mostly couples. One member is quite dominant and I think it’s messing with the mojo of the group, and me. Nothing goes by without her opinion stated on it.  She’s likes and secretly expects to get her way, but can also be charming and affectionate. Full Article

Sasha Answers: My boyfriend uses AshleyMadison

Sasha Posted by Sasha at August 27, 2012 17:30:09 August 27, 2012 17:30:09

Dear Sasha, I snooped, and I'm paying for it.  I was using my boyfriend's ipad and foolishly peeked in his email. Honestly, I was snooping to see if there was any hints of a forthcoming engagement (we've been together for over 2 years, living together since October, he's 34 and I'm 32). Full Article

Hi Sasha: My Dad’s Medical Secret

Sasha Posted by Sasha at August 14, 2012 18:11:27 August 14, 2012 18:11:27

Hi Sasha, I'm really confused right now, I went away with friends for the weekend so I decided to spend some quality time with my dad and chat a little bit over dinner. We were having a mindless conversation when suddenly he got all emotional and told me that he was not going to be around much longer, I almost had a heart attack trying to figure out why he was telling me that. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Cross-Culture Love

Sasha Posted by Sasha at August 13, 2012 18:37:46 August 13, 2012 18:37:46

Dear Sasha, I'm your standard Western woman and have been dating a Korean for four months now. We are great together yet in just these four months we've managed to break up and reunite.  We separated because I asked him to be more expressive about his feelings for me. He is great with showing it - surprise breakfast drop-offs, flowers, carrying my coat everywhere we go, asking what I need at the store (the little things that make one squee) and he is also very good with the "I love you's" but he didn't get me anything for my birthday and it put me in a sour mood. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Should I UN-blonde?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at August 13, 2012 18:32:47 August 13, 2012 18:32:47

I'm a 30 year old single chick and my parents think my hair is ruining my life.  Seriously.  I have dark hair that I have dyed a nice medium-blonde, as I'm super fair and it's much more flattering on me, in my humble opinion.  I've been a little bummed lately because of all of my friends are getting married and I've been single for a long-ass time. Full Article

Hi, When I was 18 I got married in Portugal to a friend's brother (who I was casually dating at the time) so I could get a visa to stay in the country.
