Good morning Shirley, Steve, Carla, and Tommy: I am going to do the best I can to make this short. I have been dating someone who apparently, has no respect for me. A few nights ago, he showed up at my house around 10:30pm twisted. We talked earlier that day about something that he left in my car (which was done on purpose) but never about him coming to get it. Anyway, he shows up, I gave him his item, he left and I went back to bed. The next day he began throwing me shade and I knew why but I was hoping I was wrong. I attempted to talk to him about the lack of communication that caused this issue and immediately, he gets irrate and irrational saying, I am making a big deal about communication when I should be more concerned about letting him leave drunk. First, how is that my responsibility when he never said he was coming and how is his stupidity my issue? The issue for him is that I am hiding something because my main concern was him just showing up at my house unannounced and that someone else was at my house. I do not care what the relationship is, it does not give him the right to show up at my home 10:30 at night and drunk. This is among the many situations that I have dealt with over the past few years. Sadly enough, I can think of 100 reasons not to stay in this relationship and not one to stay. I want this over with and have tried to end this relationship but I then have to realize I am not dealing with a rational person, who is always worried that someone is cheating. I am SICK of the insecurity and I do not know what to do. I know, I need to leave but how? I just want this done peacefully. If you can't trust me than why want to be with me? Also, is it appropriate for someone you are in a relationship with, to just show up at your house unannounced? I am 44 years old and I am not into the cheating thing because I am not trying to die. What gives? Was I wrong because I did not let him stay.

Hi my name is Linda, I am a 34-year-old, engaged mother of three sons. I've been with my children's father going on 18 years now. My fiance is a great guy from a great christian family and he's a hard working man and a great father but I've seen him through a lot of hard times. When we were in our 20's he struggled with drug addiction and I'm 98 percent sure he has cheated on me in the past although I could never really prove it. He's never really been affectionate and I find my self thinking of cheating pretty often. I've never really pushed the issue on getting married but now I'm ready and he just doesn't seem to care if we are married or not. In 2009 I met a guy at work and we became close friends. This guy showed me attention that I just wasn't used to. We would go out to happy hour after work, he would bring me little gifts and we had such great conversations. One night after work, he asked me to come to his place to help him with hanging curtains and when I got there he was naked with just a towel on. He grabbed me and started kissing me so passionately I thought my body was on fire. The sex was amazing. So for the next few years we had an off and on affair. He's originally from Las Vegas so he would live in Arizona for six months and back to Las Vegas for the other six. But when he was here, we were together. I didn't know what to do so I prayed hard about this and out of nowhere I found out he has seven babies and one psycho baby mama. When I confronted him he came clean and asked could we still be friends, I agreed but I kept feeling something was off. He loved to do my hair, and paint my toenails and our favorite show to watch was "Say Yes to the Dress" and "Bridesmaids". So I decided to go through his phone one night and lo and behold he was texting men; transexuals to be exact. I talked to one of the guys who told me he was on a gay chat line requesting feminine bottoms. I immediately cut him off and got tested. Which one year later, my health is great thank GOD. Now he's with another woman and I'm not sure should I should tell her about him. I feel so traumatized by this and have been struggling with depression. I feel so hurt and lost. PLEASE HELP!!
Dear Steve and The Steve Harvey Morning Crew, I am a woman in her late 30s married to a man in his early 40s that I have known since high school and love dearly. We get along great, we have fun together, our families mesh well and we have one child together. However, he isn't doing anything with his life. He's not working, not going to school, not motivated and I saw this before I got pregnant. I knew it before we got married. And that's my problem. I married him for several reasons. I married him because I love him. I married him because I got pregnant. But if I'm really being honest, I married him because I was tired of being lonely and my blinders told me he would change ... for me. I knew better, but I did it anyway. Fast forward a few years and we're still in the same situation. I know I took the vows for better or worse and I honor them everyday. We've gone to counseling, but he isn't going to change. He is who he is but I don't want to give up on my marriage and break my vows, but my question is this: How long do I honor those vows after I've come to my senses and realized that this marriage was a mistake? How long do I carry this load knowing that it's never going to lighten? Sincerely, Hard-Headed
