Sasha Answers: Cuddling At Camp

Sasha Posted by Sasha at May 29, 2012 18:49:29 May 29, 2012 18:49:29

Hi Sasha, I’m a gay, sexually frustrated teenager. Last summer, when I was a camp counselor, I had a confusing “situation”, with this guy, P. He can be funny, but he has trouble picking up on social cues and can also be pretty awkward. Anyway, while my camp is very touchy-feely and cuddly and most staff members have seen each other naked, people started to notice when P would always want to sit with me at the staff meetings every night, and would cuddle up with me, since I’m out of the closet. Full Article

Sasha, I’ve been out of work for the last couple of months and because of that I’ve had to scale back on a lot of social activities.  My friend’s 30th birthday is coming up and her best friend has planned this big dinner out at a fancy restaurant in the city.  I live in NYC, so things are even more expensive here. Full Article

Hi Sasha, So here’s the problem.  I’m nineteen years old and am currently attending college with my best friend.  My friend, C, has been my best friend for a little bit over 12 years-so most of my life.  College with her definitely has its ups and downs.  The ups?  She knows me better than pretty much anyone else and understands when I need space and vice versa. Full Article

Sasha Answer: How Do I Help My Sister-in-Law?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at May 14, 2012 18:09:24 May 14, 2012 18:09:24

Hi Sasha, I've got an awesome sister-in-law: fun, funny, lovely, generous to a fault, a great mom to her two kids, fantastic cook, loyal as can be, just GREAT. Ok, so my great sister-in-law has cancer. And she got diagnosed a month after her husband had his own cancer treated. A total sh-t sandwich. But she has ridden it like a pro, it seems to all: she is still volunteering at hockey for the kids, making all the lunches, shopping, cooking, working her butt off. Full Article

I'm in need of straight talk here. I've been with my man for two years. I knew pretty early on I wanted to spend my life with him, and so proposed. We've been engaged for about a year and a half. We haven't set a date because during our time together we've had to find a way to work through his PTSD, which is pretty severe. Full Article

Sasha Answers: He Needs Space

Sasha Posted by Sasha at May 7, 2012 18:55:55 May 7, 2012 18:55:55

Quick Coles Notes version:  started working with a guy a year and a half, almost two, years ago. We became good friends pretty quickly, but he was dating someone at the time so it was pure friendship between us.  He broke up with that girl, we hung out a few times, and then he got back together with her. Full Article

Sasha Answers: my boyfriend’s ignorant dad

Sasha Posted by Sasha at May 7, 2012 18:50:34 May 7, 2012 18:50:34

Since this website has been handling the issue of racism so well, I'd like your take on a sh-tstorm I've stirred up. At a dinner at my partner's family house, his dad drops the n-word. Twice. My boyfriend was not in the room at the time, but the other adults were. No one said a thing. His mom, brother, and sister in law - silence. Full Article

Sasha Posted by Sasha at May 1, 2012 17:24:25 May 1, 2012 17:24:25

Sasha, I have been “best” friends with K For over 10 years.  We met while waitressing and since then, I have completed school and moved into a pretty successful career.  And not to judge, but she is still a waitress (ok, a little judgy).  Up until 2 years ago, K and I have always been there for each other, especially during the rough times. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Should I Make Moves On My Friend?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at April 30, 2012 16:38:24 April 30, 2012 16:38:24

Hi Sasha, I need your advice.  I’m 25 years old and I’ve been friends with this really great guy for 13 years now, since we were in the eighth grade.  I knew then that he was into me (maybe more than that) for many of those years, and he later confessed to this years after high school.  Anyway, despite him feeling this way, he never did anything ballsy or confess to it until after the fact. Full Article
