Steve Harvey comes to Philadelphia!
Shirley Strawberry signs copies of her new book The Strawberry Letter: Real Talk, Real Advice, Because Bitterness Isn't Sexy at Barnes & Noble in Philadelphia on 4/6/11.
Dear Steve and Shirley,
Several years ago my wife and I were separated. During this time we both were intimate with other people. We have since reconnected having put that behind us and completely cut off any past lovers. While out on a business trip with one of my recent employees we were talking about women in general and sharing stories and it was all fun and games until he made a reference to the "best he ever had" and then described my wife to a tee. All the way down to a unique birthmark she has in a most private place. Without prying too much, I was able to get the name... and it was her! I have remained professional at work and haven't told my wife yet but this is becoming too much to bear. I've considered firing him but besides him being a friend he is my best employee. Solid work ethic, very intelligent, and is never late to work. What do I do? If I continue along this road eventually he will meet my wife and I'm concerned that any old feelings may re-surface and cause issues either at work, at home, or both. Help!
Dear Steve and Shirley,
I'm a 36 year old divorced mother of two beautiful daughters. I'm a nurse and I provide for my mother and nephew that both live with me. About 3 years ago I was a victim of domestic violence and left my husband of 7 years. After a tumultuous time my ex is currently in jail for 15-30 years. After taking time to settle my children and myself, I met a man at party for my co-worker. We enjoyed a few dances, cocktails and good laughs. We exchanged numbers and after a week he gave me a call. We started going out and conversing frequently, we both spoke about and agreed that neither of us was ready for a major relationship. He is a wonderful father and very attentive to his daughters. He is also very sensitive and understanding about my past and me being a single mother. As time has progressed my feelings have changed. I want this man in my life. Yes, I know and reflect on the conversation we had previously but I'm in a different place and to be frank, he is not. I know he cares for me just not in the same way. He has not met my children because I am unsure where this is going probably nowhere. Every time I try to walk away I miss him. I have discussed my feelings with him and he responds with the same ole same ole. I care about you and don't want to lose you speech. I've stopped giving him the cookies even though he makes my baby hair curl. I have started to call him less and find myself not taking his calls as often. In my heart I know there is nothing I can do to make him want me but what can I do to move past this? It's been a little over a year since we started dating, how long should I wait? Or should I keep it moving? Love your show, book smart but no common sense.
I am over 50 and settled with a nice guy, well maybe too nice it seems. This girl across the street has befriended me because she is a comfortable friend of my man. Never got the notion that they have been sexual partners but it hints of it. Now, she has brought another woman from the Midwest to live with her with no job, car, money, and apparently no cigaretts because she comes across the street to get smokes from my man. Word around town is she is loose, she works her magic on many men as I have seen for myself, to get what she needs done. She needs to do her and stay across the street with that mess! She is loud especially when she gets drunk and then sweats every man at my function! She is a BBW with a big booty and even a friend of my man's came to a function and thought she was his girlfriend instead of me cause she was under him while bar-b-queing. I have seen her often at gatherings at my house getting a bit too comfy with my man, I accidently rubbing against him, I am not happy when she is around. She often refers to him as baby, honey and it irratates me. My man thinks I am over reacting but a loose woman will do your man too! If not already because he is doing too much for her, store runs, taking to subway, or taking walks in the neighborhood and she demands his attention when she comes to my house. One Valentine's Day she referred to him as her boyfriend too, "we gonna share boyfriends today" NOT! I have since moved out but not because I do not want my man because we are still seeing each other but because he will not protect me from the foolishness with these girls. They know what they are doing, young man with good heart, job, and a house. They are taking advantage of his kindness and I do not want to be a part of their madness. I think she may have done my man, that is why she thinks she is allowed to treat me as if I do not matter when it comes to him. He has since slowed down on having them over and taking her places. But I have moved, who is to say he is not doing that when I am not there, cause he talks to me on the cell a certain way when I think she is around. He is always in a hurry to get me off the phone or sound as if I am irratating him! I am a nice looking woman for my age, still fit, works hard on my books to be out starting a business and many irons in the fire. So I am considering moving on, but the drama of a new man is making me sick just thinking of it. What should I do, besides the obvious? I really want to be with my man.
I have a girlfriend who is a nympho for sex, and hates to admit it when you talk about it with her. I have been with this woman, who is 20 yrs younger than me, for over a year now. Within a years time she has had sex with more than ten other men outside of me. I am in love with her, and sometimes she says that she loves me. We don't live together; In fact we live in two different states within 50 miles of each other. She just recently got her own place, which I don't visit often. She mainly comes to visit me. I went to her house last weekend and found that she had moved a man in with her, a sex partner. When I got there she told me that I had to leave and could not stay because he would be coming home. She told me if she gave me some sex would I leave; then turned and called the police on me because I did not leave fast enough. A few days later after knowing she was broke, and had no gas in her car to get to and from work, she came running back to me. Only because she knew I would provide her with gas and money. The guy who resides with her gives her nothing but sex, and he does not even have a job. I really do love this woman but I know she is going to continue to have affairs on me with other men. I'm 56 and she is 36 with 4 children, and 4 baby daddies. She has custody of none of her children. In the beginning that told me what kind of woman she is. Before I took a strong liking to her I feel in love with the sex. I'm just writing in because I want to know what can I do to get this woman to stop doing this. Just about 3-4 months ago she gave me an STD.
Good morning to the greatest radio show in the land. I am not going to paint a rosie picture of myself. I have had a wonderful woman in my life for 10 years and I am truly head over heels in love with her. I on the other hand have been a complete dog to this woman. I deserve all of the following that I am about to describe. The thing is that her and I broke up for about a year and a half during that time she connected with an old platonic friend who I understand as a man does was waiting in the wings for his shot at the cookies. He wined and dined her for a couple of months and the short version of the story was able to get the cookies. She fell for him but we decided to fix our issues as she realized that him and her had no future and that all he really wanted was some sex. Here is where it gets sticky... Her and I have two kids together and I have an older outside child. I decided to work things out in order to keep the family together but I can't get over her sleeping with another man even though her and I was not together. I don't want to touch her at all and I force myself to have sex with her most of the time. She hurt me bad and all I see is her with another man sexually and it literally disgust me. I am a different man than I was in the past and at 38 I have matured to the point where I am ready to be a great father and faithful loving husband and get my Steve Harvey on. LOL! I can't get past what she did even though we were not together. She has forgiven me so many times I feel as if I should forgive her. I just can't seem to be able to do it. She is really a wonderful woman but she chose to make that mistake. All I can see is another man enjoying my baby and that man to man Steve is the worst pain that I have ever felt because I truly love this woman with all of my heart but my intimate desire for her is dead. She is tarnished now and has lost all of her integrity in my eyes. Shirley she chose to give up the cookies so that lonely, hurt venerable role is out of the window because you don't have to have sex to get to know somebody and she gave it up for nothing. They had no commitment other than sex. I want to spend the rest of my life with this woman as my wife but it won't happen unless I can forgive my good girl gone bad. Am I wrong?
