I’ve recently found out I’m pregnant – just barely so.  I’m very superstitious about announcing a pregnancy too early, I’ve seen friends lose babies and have to explain it over and over again, it’s always a gut-wrenching conversation for anyone involved.  It’s always been my plan to wait for my second trimester to announce to everyone except my husband So here’s the problem with my plan… both mine and my husband’s clan are watching me like Britain is watching Duchess Catherine. Full Article

Dear Sasha, Long story short, about 10 years ago I was approached to help start up a little production company, it was a great opportunity and I jumped at it. I was able to help employ a lot of fellow freelancers and found the challenge of the job immensely rewarding. In our second year my boss decided to employ an office production coordinator, my first thought was my neighbor, who I was getting to know, would be perfect for the job. Full Article

Hi Sasha, never thought I would be writing in but here goes - I am in my mid-30s and originally from another country but currently residing in the US.  My parents are married and still together back home - they sleep in different bedrooms - you need this information for context.  My mom asked me to look up someone's phone number on my dad's cellphone and while looking for it, I ended up accidentally seeing an inappropriate text message from a woman to my dad - I should not have done this but I continued to look and discovered a lot of inappropriate correspondence between my father and this woman (who thanks to Facebook I have discovered is much much younger than my dad and engaged to another person living in the UK). Full Article

Hi Sasha! My brother, J, and I were brought up with strict Catholic values on my mum's side and ethical, sensible ones of my dad's.  I've ended up a smart, savvy, logical, morally-driven, responsible adult with strong family values.  J... hasn't.  He does what he wants, when he wants, doesn't care who dislikes it, and then goes to my parents with his hand out when he screws up. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I'm feeling guilty about some neglected friendships. I have a group of girlfriends from college (we graduated about 10 years ago). We've all stayed in touch over the years, meeting up at weddings, showers etc, but we haven't maintained that call-each-other-every-week status that we had in college. Full Article

Hey Sasha, So when I was 19 I started a new job and met S who I liked instantly. Around a year later he told me completely out of the blue that he was in love with me. I was very shocked and didn’t deal with it very well and basically rejected him. Not long after, he started seeing another girl from work (lets call her B). Full Article

Dear Sasha, I have had a tumultuous year in relationships.  I was with someone for 5 years, most of those being long distance.  He was charming, thoughtful and we talked for ages on the phone each day.  HOWEVER, I only saw him once every 2 months or so for a long weekend, never met his family, and had to deal with him becoming increasingly controlling. Full Article

Sasha, I got pregnant 6 months after dating my boyfriend. I was 21 at the time and he was 23. We stuck through together, and 3 years later got married and had another baby. I'm now in my late twenties. I love my husband, but I feel no spark.  I dread having sex with him, and avoid it at all costs. Full Article

Dear Sasha, My parents are not good role models for a happy marriage and should have been divorced a long time ago. I can safely say all my bad choices in the romance department stem from this and I have trust issues where I can shut down emotionally and block out everyone. I am the second of 4 kids. Full Article

Sasha, about 1 ½ years ago I moved from NYC to Dubai, UAE, where I fell in love with someone I still believe is the “one.” He is Arab/Muslim, I am whiter than a ghost, bright blonde, and no religious affiliation. About 3 months into dating we had a discussion that marriage would be a tricky road b/c his family would not be on board, but that if/when the time came marriage was “on the table” (his words not mine). Full Article
