Giving Sound Advice? Your Friendship May Depend On It

Alasha, My best friend and her fiancé have been together for a few years now and they are finally ready to tie the knot. She wants a big wedding but he would rather buy a house. Being married to my husband for almost a decade now I tried to sit her down and persuade her to yield to what her husband is trying to build for them and to consider what a lavish one day event would mean versus the security of a home. She thinks I am taking her fiancés side and we have been at odds ever...

Dating a Woman with Kids, the Binding Truth

Alasha, I have been seeing a lady who has a child that is fairly young. I don’t have children of my own and am not sure if I ever want any.

I really like her but I’m not sure if I’m ready to be a step-parent. I want to continue seeing just her for now,...

Shielding Loved Ones from Pain, a Sister’s Plea

Alasha, I’m worried about my youngest brother; he is marrying the wrong girl! He is so blinded by love he can’t see what the rest of us siblings see.

She is very flirtatious with other men and has been caught having lunch dates with men that are not my brother. Besides that, if it’s not enough, she is not loving or nurturing towards my brother. She is very cold and treats him like he couldn’t do any...

I Just Want to be FREE

Alasha, I was married for twelve years and have been divorced for two. My young daughter lives in the home with me and I have gone back to school working towards another degree.

I do have some ladies I call up from time to time just to hang out but I always feel awkward because it’s usually a spur of the moment thing. I’m not interested in a romantic relationship at this point in my life and I don’t want to lead any of these women on....

Men, Are You Being Offensive Without Knowing It?

At the request of one of my female readers I want to address the stinky elephant in the room! Alasha, What started out as a pleasant experience on a recent date came to an abrupt end. My date was wearing way too much cologne. Driving home I had to roll my windows down from the overwhelming smell. My hands smelled of cologne from our parting handshake and lingered after washing them several times. I had to put my favorite sweater in the cleaners. Can you relay to the men the importance of moderation? Myra Myra, I’ve had your same...

Can Credit be an Indicator of Commitment to a Relationship?

Alasha, I am dating a man who I just recently found out has terrible credit. He wears nice clothes, has a nice car, takes me to nice restaurants and has given me some pretty nice gifts. I thought his credit issues may have been from a previous marriage or perhaps an unfortunate circumstance such as a foreclosure of a home but neither is the issue. He has never been married or in a long term relationship. I really like this guy but I’m concerned about a possible future with someone who is careless with their finances, what should I...
