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: Him or her Dear Morning Crew, I’m a 30-year-old attractive lesbian. I have been with this one woman for two years and I’m madly in love with her. However she has cheated on me twice with girls who look exactly alike. They look nothing like me — they are dark, thick and bald, and I am red and petite with a head full of locs. Now after the second time I caught her cheating I moved out. A male friend of mine helped me move. Over these past three months he and I have become extremely close. Close enough that we have been intimate since the night I moved out! Now my interests have changed. I’m still in love with the woman who hurt and betrayed me, but I’m also having feeling for this man. This is totally unheard of for me. My ex-girlfriend is trying to come back around, which makes me happy, but I don’t trust her. I’m actually developing feelings for this man, but he comes with baggage too. Should I forgive my ex for a third time, or should I leave her alone and focus on finding a faithful love, maybe a love from this man. I think I’m falling in love with him.
