Dear Sasha, How do I stop people-pleasing when it comes to one of my good friends (who happens to be one of the least self-aware people on earth)? Let me be clear here: I'm the one who has changed (mostly). My friend and I enjoyed one of those relationships with constant texting and hanging out. Full Article

Hi Sasha, I'm writing to you about my friend. You've heard this story before: she's pretty, smart, ambitious and could have any guy. However, the guys she picks are well, the exact opposite of her. She spent seven years in a relationship with a guy who spent all his time on his couch smoking pot, drawing heavily from the unemployment fund and bank of mom and dad. Full Article

About 2 years ago, I met “Brad” at a friend’s party. We hit it off immediately and there was a definite connection. Problem was, he had a girlfriend and a long-term one at that -- 9 years. So I stepped back, said a polite goodbye at the end of the evening and left it at that. Fast forward 8 months and I bump into Brad at the mall. Full Article

Hi Sasha My grandpa is a wonderful man, but he is in his mid 80s and drives quite recklessly. I'm so scared he will end up hurting someone and I don't know what to do because no one in my family is proactive about this. He's driven into side rails, barriers, poles, mailboxes, and my aunt's car. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I’m 16, and I was raised by a great single mother. My mom and I are very close, she had me when she was young, and my father left us not too long after I was born... anyway, my mom’s always been very open with me about sex, and she’s made me promise her to wait until I was 18. Full Article

So my boyfriend of 3 years, whom I live with, is an actor. Things between us are really serious, we're very in love and have a great relationship, always have. Unfortunately because of his strange and awesome occupation, he feels he needs to move to Toronto for his career and I don't disagree, I completely understand that Toronto is where most of the work is. Full Article

Sasha, one of my best friends sells some lovely, but highly overpriced (in my humble opinion) fashion jewelry from company. I am a cheap bitch for sure, and I know that many ladies really like this jewelry but I just can’t stomach paying $175 for a necklace. Anyway, she asked me to hold a trunk show last year and I did, feeling like I owed it to her to support her as this is the main source of her income, but it was a pain for me and I didn’t want to do it again. Full Article

Hi Sasha. My daughter is a flower girl in a wedding. I'm concerned about the pictures and the online presence she might receive because of it. I do not post any pictures of her on social media and I don't know how to handle this upcoming event. I am stressed out about it because I feel that she should decide, when she's old enough, if she wants any of her pictures floating around. Full Article

Hi Sasha, question for you. Today I had to bring my cat to my vet's office for an emergency visit (she's ok). Because it was a Saturday, my regular vet wasn't there, so we saw an associate of his. Sasha, I liked him! He was cute, in my age range, attentive to my beloved pet, and thoughtful and humorous in answering my questions. Full Article

Sasha, I am 35, never married, no kids. By now, I expected my life to be much more traditional- married with children, and I believe I'd make a great mother. Two years ago, I met R. through work. He's a loner and not interested in most social situations or meeting friends, but we hit it off and have become very close. Full Article
