I'm sorry to say that bike doesn't fit you... just guessing. It sounds like the top-tube is too long

You can move the saddle forward, but (typically) you wind up shifting more weight from your butt to your hands and they get numb.

If you bought the bike recently, go talk to the shop. If the stem is unusually long, they should swap it out for a shorter one and then it's all good. But if the stem ain't too long, then a shorter one will make handling a bit twitchy. In which case -- if you bought it new recently -- the shop should swap you out to a better fitting bike.

PS: come hang out in the roadie forum.
