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: I’m in love with a cougar Good morning Steve and Shirley, Let me get to it. I met this woman on an internet Website, who turned out to be 22 years my senior — she’s 46. I didn’t have a problem with the age. She is a beautiful woman and she taught me a lot of sexual things. The thing is, she is a cougar. At first I didn’t have a problem with it because I looked at the fact that I could have my cake and eat it too, thinking I could date other women. However, that was a no-go for her. She could talk to other men, but if I looked at a woman on TV or anything she would get angry with me and belittle me. She and I have been on-and-off for a few years. Now she’s moved on to a new young thing, but, the thing is, I love her. Do you think I should try and make it work with her after she told me I was just a sex thing? She told me I was just a fantasy she had of having sex with a 20-year-old, but we’ve been together for four years and I take care of her and I was even being called granddad by her grandkids. What should I do? Steve, give me some advice on this woman. To submit your own letter to Strawberry Letter, click here. For more information on Steve Harvey Comedy tour dates, click here.
