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: Super Hot Hi Shirley & Steve, I have a man who is generous, kind, and thoughtful. However, he is about as bright as a box of rocks. He is divorced with three daughters. He invited me to go to his eldest daughter’s graduation and I agreed to go with him to another state to attend. When we arrived, we checked into a hotel and ordered some food. After that, he informed me that I would be staying in the hotel room while he attends the graduation with his ex-wife. He left me in the hotel room for about five hours! I was so hurt and frustrated that when he walked back through that door, I told him to turn back around because I wanted to go directly home. He apologized and tried to talk me into staying the night, but I insisted to go home. After we got back home, I did not call him, nor answer his calls. Because, for me, he made a stupid move. I like him a lot and was prepared to have a nice night of hot love. I had a sexy little lace number, high heels, incense, candles, the whole nine! He blew it! Stupid! Anyway, I felt like that he should have been up-front with me from the jump, told me the truth and let me make an informed decision as to whether or not I wanted to go with him. He said that the reason he did not take me was because his ex-wife was psycho and would start a fight with me if she saw me and that he did not want drama. Now, why he did not tell me this bit of information ahead of time, I do not know. Upon returning home, I avoided his calls, gave him the slip, and kicked him to the curb. The next thing I know my door bell rings and he is standing on the other side of the door with a fresh dozen beautiful red roses. I accepted the roses and sent him on his way. After all, the roses looked really good on my nightstand. He invited me to go to church with him and I did. One day he called to take me and I did not want to go on that particular Sunday. He got frantic and told me that if I did not go to “his church” that I would go to hell and that he did not want to see me again. I informed him that going to his church was not a requisite of salvation. I went on to say that if you did not want to see me to keep it moving. But he keeps calling me and giving me gifts, anyway. He is a hardworking responsible man but when it comes to spiritual things he is a fanatic. He has asked me to marry him several times, I told him that I wanted to get to know him for about a year and that we could revisit the subject of marriage at that time. He responded by saying that he was a man and that he could not wait that long and that he had another woman that wanted to marry him now, so I better get with the program and make a decision. I once again told him “bye.” I told him that if that other woman wanted to marry him that bad that he might want to consider it. Because, I refuse to be pushed into marriage. Meanwhile, I am super hot, I want a man so bad that I can feel it. I am so… so… hot. Steve, what should I do? To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
