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: The clean-up woman Good day Steve, Shirley, and the Crew, I am writing this letter for help and advice. I am a 23-year-old female who is completely comfortable with my life right now. My downfall is that I have found myself becoming attracted to older men (aged 40 and over), because of the stability that they offer, that I have not found in men my age. Right now I have an older friend that views me as a little sister or someone that he can talk to when he is going through problems. However, over the past few months, I have found myself being sexual attracted to this older man. He is and has been in a 4-year relationship with a very established–more established than him–woman. From the talks that we have, she is constantly throwing up the fact that she has more money and assets than him. He is a good man. He is there for her in every way a man should be there for a woman, except financially. It has come to the point where he sleeps at my house to be away from her nagging. I am stuck. Just recently he began to flirt with me and make passes at me. He’s not married to this woman, but they have been together for a long time. I want him, but I am way too young to establish the type of relationship that he has with her. What am I to do? She’s making it too easy for me to be the clean-up woman.
