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: Help, I Am Truly In Love Dr. Steve, I am 48 and been with my gentleman for about 9 years. I have my own place, which I have not slept in at all. I help him with his mother, taking her to the doctor and helping with breakfast, lunch and dinner because she is disabled. I don’t mind, I don’t like being alone and I love her. My mother is deceased, she died when she was 32. I am also disabled, I had a ruptured brain aneurysm and now suffer with seizures, but I am blessed to have a good friend and companion like I do. I am divorced and have 2 sons that live with their Dad. Ok, I want to ask him to marry me but am afraid he will say no. We don’t go out, he goes where he wants to, but we have good times. I am a very mushy, loving person. I love cards, bears, things like that, he is straight to the point. So, what am I supposed to do? I need help so very bad. I am not saying I need him around me all of the time, there are times when he does just what I like, but if I want a candlelit dinner and all that good stuff, it won’t happen. Steve, what can I do? Please help me, I am so afraid to ask him to marry me, I truly feel he will say no but I won’t know until I ask. What can I do? To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
