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: He loves me but he just isn’t in love with me Dear Shirley and Steve, I have been dating a guy for four and a half months and Ive truly fallen in love with him. When I asked him how he feels about me, he said he cares about me deeply…then conceeded that he does love me, but is not IN LOVE with me. He says “LOVE” is not a word that throws around easily. He takes it very seriously and he doesnt feel that way yet. He didnt give me a birthday present either, claiming that hes waiting for the right time. I gave him until January, but Im feeling so hurt now, Im ready to start dating again and move on. Should I leave this man who has many of the qualities that Ive always wanted in a man now?
