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

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.

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

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

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

Dear Sasha, I have had a major crush on my male coworker for several months now. It all started because several people said he was really into me.

Sasha Posted by Sasha at April 23, 2012 18:55:43 April 23, 2012 18:55:43

I am set to get married very soon. I love him with all my heart, he's my best friend and I am excited to be his wife. We've been together for many, many years already. As excited as I am, as soon as I run out of wedding tasks, I can't help feeling panicky. Not about him, but about being married. It feels so grown up, like my whole life is over and decided and boring and typical. Full Article
