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

Sasha Answers: Casually separated

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

Sasha Answers: The “less than” friend

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 24, 2012 19:10:14 January 24, 2012 19:10:14

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

Sasha Answers: Don’t Bang Your Buds

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 23, 2012 19:44:48 January 23, 2012 19:44:48

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

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 23, 2012 19:39:31 January 23, 2012 19:39:31

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

Sasha Answers: My Dad Is Messing Around

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 17, 2012 20:13:24 January 17, 2012 20:13:24

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

Sasha Answers: My Brother Is A Dick

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 17, 2012 19:48:28 January 17, 2012 19:48:28

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

Sasha Answers: do I miss my friends?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 10, 2012 18:50:39 January 10, 2012 18:50:39

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

Sasha Answers: should I wait around?

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 9, 2012 18:53:15 January 9, 2012 18:53:15

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
