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: Dumped Via Text Good Morning Crew: I am a 33 yr old b caribbean woman with 3 kids. I have been single for over 4 yrs now. I chose to do this so I can work on myself. I started dating a African guy about two mths ago. We became close very quickly. He was handsome, good job all that good stuff but the most important thing we had was good communication an area of which was lacking in my previous relationship. We talked about everthing under the sun, and agreed to disagree at times based on the topic. Well, on Thanksgiving Day he had to work from home, so I decided to take him a plate of food being he is a single man. I took the food over to his house and he didnt want me to leave. So, I spent the night into Friday all day, we made love in between him working throughout the day. I left and went home that evening to give him sometime to himself. Then, here comes the suprise on Monday via text all of a sudden that he has no feelings for me. What the hell? How we go from baby “I want to make love to you” to my feelings are not strong enough for me on Monday. After spending so much time with each other and all the wonderful sex and convos to this. Steve, I have had a recurring cycle of bad relationships. Which is why I took my time before giving my heart out again. Im destined to break the cycle. I dont understand how this came about in a matter of days. I thought highly of him he has all the morals and values I was looking for . Now, Im devastated cuz I finally gave in, and Im sitting here with a broken heart again. I need to get this figured out and be able to move on. Please give it to me raw cuz thats as real as it gets. I need to understand whats going on here, get some type of closure so i can continue with my life. There must be an explanation. Maybe I need to submit my name on your Dating program so you guys can do the screening probably thats where Im missing the signs. Thanks, dumped via text
