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: My BFF’s man Good Morning, Morning Crew, I’m going to get straight to the point. I have been having an “affair” with my best friend’s ex-boyfriend. I only called it an affair because our affair is going on two years and they’ve only been broken up for three months (it was over well before they both stated it). I know what I did and am doing is so wrong in everyone’s eyes including mine, but I am deeply in love with this guy and he is too. Even when he was with her he was a perfect man to her, she just couldnt leave her babies’ father alone. This man treats me with the upmost respect and love. Ive been molested, raped & abused by men and at one point in time I hated men! This man came into my life and made me a better me and helped heal me. He got me to go to a therpist and face my issue head on. I often pray and ask why the one guy that helped me turn my life around and healed me has to be my best friend’s ex-man. I tell you, Steve, he is my perfection! We were good friends before we did the unthinkable. He wants to come clean to her via my therpist becuase he is tired of sneaking around, hiding our love. I want to too because I love him, but I love my friend more. Please help!!! Love, In Love with Two!
