Sasha- I am casually dating this guy, we'll say John, and have been for a while. Things are great.

I’ve received a lot of letters asking why some stars on the red carpet are wearing shoes that are too big for them.  Some of you are actually right pissed about it.   So to calm all your nerves I have a couple of theories which I hope will bring peace to the matter. When celebrity stylists are pulling shoes for their clients they aren’t pulling from the Jimmy Choo or Louboutin retail stores; they head to designer showrooms. Full Article

My family (parents, 2 brothers and a sister) live in a small town, I live about 700 miles away. My brother and his wife have two kids as does my sister and her husband. Sounds great, right? Wrong...my brother's oldest kid, a boy (R) has some serious issues with anger and jealously that his parents don't seem to recognize as serious issues, they rationalize it as boy behavior. Full Article

Sasha, so as a quick background, my ex-boyfriend, M and I dated on and off for 4-5 years (2003-2008-ish).  When we were living in the same place our relationship was really great, but quickly deteriorated when we dated long distance (I was in the states, he was in Asia).  Two years in to our relationship and 3-months in to the long distance, he cheated, we broke up, he apologized profusely, we got back together. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I recently reached the age where most of my friends have started getting engaged, married and having kids. One of my close friends got hitched last year and I was asked to be a bridesmaid, at the time I had no idea what this entailed. During the planning phase the bride called me often but only to talk about the wedding, there was no interest in anyone or anything else and since the wedding I have talked to her a handful of times. Full Article

Hello! Dated a guy from high school (T) until after college – he was selfish and inconsiderate so I finally broke it off. I still had a “friendship” with him (it’s in parenthesis because we clearly weren’t just friends but we didn’t sleep together) until he stopped contact for 4 months. I dated someone else (say S) but only thought of the ex the whole time wanting him to be the one that did all these nice bf things for me. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I recently created an online dating profile for kicks, but ended up encountering a guy that seems to have great potential.  He is witty, educated, and really... really attractive.  We've been messaging for over a month now, and are going to be going out this week.  The only reason it's taken so long to meet is because we were both travelling over the holidays. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I have been seeing someone casually for four months. I’ll call him J. We are long distance, very fresh and new. I wouldn’t even classify us as ‘together,’ I live in Ottawa, J lives in Toronto. His work requires him to come to Ottawa about once a month and we see each other when he comes here. Full Article

I'm in a very rocky place with a girlfriend of mine.  For the four years or so that we've been friends, I can't remember her ever consciously doing anything to slight me, although our conversations are almost invariably about her.  Rather, the problem is that she is gorgeous - model-gorgeous, room-stopping traffic-stopping thought-stopping gorgeous - and me, well, I'm not, although I try to stay fit and look decent. Full Article

Hey Sasha, So I dated this dude for about a year, and we decided after the breakup to remain friends. Problem was, it was a "break up one day, and literally the next day we hang out as friends" type thing, so there wasn't really a recovery period. The first while after the breakup was brutal, because I wasn't over it. Full Article

Sasha Answers: I’m pregnant and superstitious

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
