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: One mistake I wish I never made Hey Crew, I really need some help. I am a 26-year-old man and I have one of the most beautiful women by my side. We just recently got engaged and life seems to be going well, however a deep dark secret of mine seems to keep creeping up. It was about a year and a half ago that I received a mysterious text from a secret admirer and at first I thought nothing of it. I even thought that it was one of my friends playing a trick on me. I soon realized that it was really someone that I didn’t know and the thrill of texting back and forth got the best of me. Everything at home was perfect, but I just loved the thrill of texting or should I say sexting. I soon asked for pictures and she sent pics and I sent all kinds of pics as well. We made a promise to never share these with anyone else and I thought she wouldn’t. We then set up a date to meet at a public place at night and this is where the drama began. As she approached, I realized that this wasn’t a woman and it was a old college buddy that had been in the closet. We then got into a heated argument and he told me that If I walked away he would post my pictures and messages on the internet, tell people at my church, and my girl. I then begged him not to do that because of my relationship that I have with my church and also it would devastate my girl. He then told me to let him give me oral and I did and then we went our separate ways. That was the only time and the last time I ever did anything with the same sex. I have recently been getting text messages from this person and threats about bringing everything to the light. Please tell me what to do. I know my fiance will leave me and my life can go down the drain off of this one mistake. To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here.
