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: Confused I am 27 years old, a business owner with a college degree. I met this guy while we were in college. We became good friends and always did our work together. Sometimes people would ask if we were talking or messing around. At the time we weren’t, we were strictly friends. He had a girlfriend and everything. Fast forward two-and-a-half years, he had a child on the way and was dating a girl, and he called me out of the blue saying he was coming back to school early from break for a game he had. We started messing around then. He now lives out of town, but we still see each other kind of often. I met his baby several times while she was a baby, but now that she’s almost four, he introduced me to her as Auntie…We still mess around from time to time, and we keep up with each other’s lives but am I someone he considers special or important? I’ve met his mother, daughter, his friends and his girlfriends in between our times together. They have always known about me and that I was very important to him. What do I do? Is he just around for the sex? Does he want something maybe later (I am three years older than him)? Why does he keep me around if he doesn’t want a relationship? I am partially in love with him…what do i do? To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here. For more information on Steve Harvey Comedy tour dates, click here.
