Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: Not Enough Time Dear Steve & Shirley,  I am a 29yr old female that is very independent I have two jobs & go to school full time with no kids. But that’s not the problem the problem is that I have a boyfriend that I have been dating for 9 months and he says that we don’t spend enough time together. At first when I wanted to spend time with him he was to busy working on his projects & would tell me to fall back so he could finish & we would have time when he was done. So i got the two jobs & school to occupy my time so that I wouldn’t bother him. Now that my plate is a little full its a problem that we don’t have that spending time together, so he want me to quit one of my jobs so the time would be there. The main thing that is bothering me now is that he think that I don’t want to sacrifices things for him so he always will make the statement if you cant do this for me then “I will find someone else that don’t have to much on their plate to focus just on me.” I do love him but I am confused because we spend time when i am off but that’s not good enough for him. What can I do to show him that I want just as much time with him as he does with out stopping the things that I am doing? Signed Busy Female
