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: Selfish Boyfriend Dear Shirley and Steve, I am a 40-year-old woman who has been in a serious relationship for the last five years. When the relationship first started it was great, but now it seems like everything is about him. Don’t get me wrong, I really love him a lot, but now it seems all he cares about are his children and his family. If there is something going on with my family or my child, I have to wait to see if he does not have any plans because he always wants me with him. There is no love and care or concern about me anymore. All he wants is to have his food cooked, clothes washed and for me to take him where he wants to go. I am tired of him. Don’t get me wrong, I am not perfect.  But we you live in the same house and he only talks to me when he’s finished doing what he wants and then realizes that he wants to have sex with me because it is convenient for him — especially late at night when I am tired and have already gone to sleep. He even lets his 7-year-old daughter sleep in our bed and refuses to let her sleep in her own bed. Help. I am tired and ready to leave. Signed, Ready to go!
