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: He’s hooked on my loving Hello Morning Crew, I’m 39 years old and married to an older man who has a college-age son from a previous marriage. To make a long, sordid story short, my stepson’s best friend has been after me for about a year. Every opportunity he got, he would try for me. I even told my husband that I didn’t like having him around the house. Well, my husband and I were going through some rough times and he cheated on me. Up until this time, I had never even thought of cheating on him. What can I say, my son’s friend caught me at my most vulnerable moment, and yes, I did it. I slept with him. That was several months ago. The only thing that made me feel better about the situation is that he was supposed to graduate from the junior college (where my husband coaches) and move out of town to finish his last two years. Well, now he’s decided to go to a local school and he’s at our home more often than ever! He’s got some kind of fatal attraction thing going on. The latest episode was at a family barbecue, he touched me in an inappropriate area and I looked up and my husband was looking right at us. My husband is crazy jealous, so for him not to have said anything scares me and I feel like he’s cooking something up. The boy follows us to church and everything (I looked behind me last Sunday and there he was, waving and smiling at me.). I really don’t know what to do other than pack my bags and get out while I can. I know he’s telling people about us too because my step son (who used to adore me) barely speaks to me now and the boy’s girlfriend told someone I was a “b.” Please help!
