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: Does he love me? Good morning Ms. Strawberry and Mr. Harvey, I have a situation. To be really honest, I’m kind of scared to say it, but here we go. I am a 37-year-old woman in a relationship with a man who is 32. Now I have been with him for 2 years now. Here is my first problem — babymama drama. She and I have already had a physical fight. I got a restraining order. That didn’t work. She violated it Seven times! The police did nothing. Second, the man has the nerve to part his lips and tell me that he “loves me” yet he was chasing his babymama and fighting with her man! This was the first year we were together. When he was unsure who he wanted to be with, I decided to leave so that he could make his family work. He asked me not to go. So I decided to stay. To make a long story short, I still have confrontations with his babymama. He still argues with her. I mean there should be no reason for argument if it’s really over right? I feel that the reason why she trips or argues with him is because she thinks there is hope of them getting back together. She has mentioned to him before that he needs to be with a black woman not a Latin one! Should I stay because in all truthfulness. I really do love him, but I’m questioning his love for me. So I don’t know if his feelings for me are real or really fake. What should I do?
