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: Will sex make him leave? I am a 26 year old female and I been with my ole man (now my child’s father) for the last 6 years and known him for the last 9 years. When we started dating he had just gotten out of a relationship with a newborn. He has been back and forth with me and her. In the past he has told me he doesn’t love her and she cant do anything for him but sexually please him. He have told me to my face, told his friends and family that he don’t want her and that he is in love with me. I am well groomed, independent, nice looking, and have a good job vs. she lacks in each one but I must admit, she is better looking. I love him dearly with all my heart but I worries myself about him leaving me because of her sex is better than mines. It makes me very insecure and I can’t be happy because I think he will leave me for her. He has asked to marry me and tells me he don’t want her and that I am the woman for him. I need help what do i do?
