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 slept with my friend’s crush Steve and Shirley, I need your help. There is a guy that I like and had sex with. It was only a couple of times. I have known him for about three years. We have become really good friends. I never pursued a serious relationship with him because I had just come out of a bad one. Well, now he is trying to talk to one of my best friends. She is like a sister to me. I would never do anything to hurt her or prevent her from being happy. I am at a crossroads on what I should do. I don’t know if I should tell or take it to my grave. I know if I tell her she will not give him the time of day. I think that he really likes her and would consider having a relationship with her. I don’t know what I should do. He and I had sex in February and March of this year. We actually made plans a few weeks ago to hang out, but they fell through. Should I tell her the truth or just not say anything?
