We got it for you. Here it is Strawberry Letter.

Speaker 1 (00:25):
Thank you for you. Subject. He wears more shapewear than
I do. Dear Stephen Shirley, I'm newly divorced and dating
again at fifty three years old. My aunt set me
up with a handsome, bald man that has a great
smile but a quirky personality. I cannot figure out what's
up with him until recently. He's a school administrator and
he does educational videos for the school district, so he's

(00:49):
really into how he looks. On our first date, he
told me that he bleaches his teeth regularly and he
gets fillers in his face. We have been dating four
months and he still won't tell me how old he is,
but he looks like he's slightly older than I am.
I enjoy his company and I got used to him
going on and on about himself on our dates. He

(01:10):
always jokes about holding his stomach in when we were
on date. But I do the same thing, so that
was no big deal. He's fun to hang out with,
but he has a problem with being honest and telling
me things about himself. Excuse me, here's what happened.

Speaker 2 (01:26):
He's back.

Speaker 1 (01:27):
His back and tummy always felt firm, so I eventually
asked him if he wears a back brace. He said
he just got a muscular back.

Speaker 2 (01:36):
Not true.

Speaker 1 (01:37):
This past week, we were intimate for the first time
and I finally saw what's hiding under his clothes. He
had on a very fitted tank top that pressed against
his chest and stomach. It looked like a compression shirt.
He had on a pair of skin tight biker shorts
that went down.

Speaker 2 (01:55):
To his knees.

Speaker 1 (01:56):
After he got naked, he looked twenty pounds heavier. His
skin was wishy and wrinkley. He said he's self conscious,
so I tried to reassure him, but I was really
turned off. I am worried that he might be concealing
other stuff. What should I do learn to love the
fat or let him go. You're worried that he might

(02:16):
be concealing other stuff, other stuff, like what what else
is he concealing? I'm really trying to understand what exactly
is your issue here? You like him, you enjoy his company,
you like hanging out with him. You said he's handsome,
he has a nice smile that he bleaches regularly on.
He has a good job. But your problem is, I think,

(02:37):
is that certain things you want to know about him
that he hasn't told you yet, Like what how old
he is? He hasn't told you that. I guess you
can google that if you really really wanted to know,
and he's still not telling you. He wants you to
think he's younger. I mean, what are you trying to say?

(02:57):
You say he doesn't talk to you a lot, he
doesn't open up. But then you said earlier in the
letter that he goes on and on and on about himself.
So when he's talking about himself, do you think to
ask him whatever it is you want to know about him.
I just think you're mad because he wears body shapers
and you don't think body shapers are very manly. That's

(03:18):
what it sounds like, well, he doesn't seem to be
happy about him either, because when he undressed with you,
he confessed that he was self conscious about his body,
and you said you didn't want to crush him, so
you try to reassure him, but you got turned up. Listen,
everybody looks different naked. Some people look better to naked,
some people don't look so good naked. So I say,

(03:39):
if you like the man, and he's only about twenty
pounds underweight, why don't you guys? You know, if you
really like him, you like hanging out, hang out at
the gym, work out Steve.

Speaker 3 (03:51):
Girl, Girl, you know you are so kind sherely that
it irritates me. Sometimes you are just such a can person.
You always be nice to these people. They call in
the fat ass sitting up in here lying to this woman.
All damn town, that's just gonna get to now. I
ain't mean, I just like ten truth. Let's just's gonna
get to truth. Then he wear more shape wear than

(04:14):
I do. All right, You divorced and you start dating again.

Speaker 2 (04:18):
At fifty three years old.

Speaker 3 (04:19):
Mom set me up with a handsome ball man, had
a great smile, but a quirky personality.

Speaker 2 (04:24):
Why is he available?

Speaker 3 (04:27):
You know you gonna find out that he older than you,
But why is he even available? What happened? You need
to learn some history. I ain't quirk figured out what's
up with him until recently. He's a school administrator. He
does educational videos for school. So it's really into how
he looks on his first date. Now, this is what
he told you, that he bleaches his teeth regularly. How

(04:50):
often do your damn teeth need bleaching? But are you
chewing your damn cigarettes? Why do you all the time
gotta bleach your damn teeth?

Speaker 2 (05:00):
What are you eating? And he gets fellers in his face?

Speaker 3 (05:09):
Now every way we need to start showing some concern
because when you start getting fillers in your face, you
trying to make your face look fatter. So what if
he don't get the fellers? I'm thinking skeletal. I'm thinking
he's sitting up there looking like a damn skeleton, so
he gotta put some fat in his face. Now hold

(05:33):
on to that thought, because I'm gonna tell you why
he's looking skeletal. I have figured this letter out. So
now y'all been dating for four months and he still
won't tell me how old he is?

Speaker 2 (05:49):
He looks like he's slightly older than me. He is,
And let me.

Speaker 3 (05:53):
Ask you a question. What man don't tell his age? Yeah,
that's really not a thing for us. I'm very rarely here,
man tell me none. Now, don't ask me how old
I am?

Speaker 2 (06:08):
Dog?

Speaker 3 (06:09):
What kind of dude is this? That's not really im Women.
I understand, you know, it's then proper to ask a
woman how much she weighed, how old she is? But
a dude, man, Oh, I enjoyed his company, and I
got used to him going on and on about himself.
He's joked about holding his stomach in, but I do too.

(06:30):
All right, So both of y'all sucking your stomach in,
that ain't no problem. But when we come back, though,
I'm gonna tell you what he is the problem. I
didn't figure it out.

Speaker 1 (06:41):
Hang on for part two of Steve's response, coming up
at twenty three minutes after the hour. Today's Strawberry letter.
Subject he wears more shapewear than I do. We'll get
back into it right after this. You're listening Harvey Morning Show.
All right, come on, Steve, let's recap today's strawberry letter.
The subject is he wears more shape.

Speaker 3 (07:00):
Where then I do fifty three year old woman back
in the dating game, her aunt set up with a
very handsome man, a very very handsome, but he has
a quirky personality. They go out of date. He tell
her that he regularly bleaches his teeth. Who regularly bleach
they damn teeth?

Speaker 2 (07:20):
What are you eating?

Speaker 3 (07:23):
I'm assuming instead of smoking his cigarettes he eating them. Really,
it's up that you and tobacco. I can't think of
why you need to regularly bleach your teeth. But then
here was a shaka. He gets fillers in his face. Now,
why would a person need fillers in his face? For
when naturally you get older, your head and face get bigger.

(07:46):
But unless you have done what I think he's done,
he's sitting over there looking skeletal. So he got to
get some fillers cause his face is sunken, eyes is sunken.
He looked like the dead now and he won't tell
you how old he is. Most men don't have a
problem with that. So now you have a problem with

(08:07):
the man that is into hisself, and you've gotten used
to him talking about hisself on date. You enjoy his
company and everything, and he joked about holding his stomach
in when y'all was on dates, and you said, that's
cool because I hold mine into. Ain't no big deal.
He's fun to hang out with, but he has a
problem being honest and telling me things about himself.

Speaker 2 (08:26):
Here's what happened.

Speaker 3 (08:27):
His back and Tommy always felt firm, so I eventually
asked him if he wears a back brace.

Speaker 2 (08:32):
He said no, he got a muscular back.

Speaker 1 (08:35):
Really you mad about that.

Speaker 3 (08:39):
Back, damn muscular dog with your old sunken ass face.
Now all of a sudden, your back is in shape.
But you just told her you gotta suck your stomach in.
Lie after lie after lie. He's just sitting up there,
just a big old swoll, just sitting up there. Y'all
can't even enjoy your date because he just swore. But anyway,

(09:01):
this past week we got intimate for the first time,
and I finally saw what was hiding under his clothes.
He had on a fitted tank top that pressed against
his chest and stomach.

Speaker 2 (09:12):
It looked like a compression shirt.

Speaker 3 (09:14):
Y'all, remember back when we was doing the show in Atlanta,
that company came over and gave us all that compression stuff,
and I put that tank top on and I couldn't
get it off.

Speaker 2 (09:28):
Dude, we had to cut it off. Bought that damn
tank top went on so tight.

Speaker 3 (09:33):
It was a slimming tank top, but it massed your
chest down too. I didn't like it, but I caught
hell getting it off. So I am familiar with these
compression shirts. He had on a pair of skin tight
biker shorts that went down to his knees. That's the
compression draws we in. Other words, he had on spanks

(09:54):
t shirt and a spank's bottom. And then after he
got naked, he looked twenty pounds heavy. His skin was
squishy and wrinkly. Now let me tell you what happened.
This is why he gets face fillers, and this is
why he wear all this compression stuff. Boy used to

(10:16):
be real fat. Then he got that surgery because he vain.
He got a lap band, and he'd lost a whole
bunch of weight. Now his skin is sagging, squishy and wrinkly,
and that's why he's embarrassed. He got a lap band,
that's why he wearing all this compression stuff. But he

(10:38):
took his clothes off and all hell broke loose, and
that's what she got. And that's why he don't talk
about hisself. She talked about he looked twenty pounds, heavy
in his skin, saggy and wrinkly. He had that surgery.
I'm worried that he might be concealing other stuff. Well,
he don't tell you about hisself. The man not being honest.

(11:00):
I have a good time long as he ain't talking,
because he's usually lying. So what happened to that musk
glass back he had? So it turned into a spanks
top and a spank's bottom. Now he's squishing, he's soft.
Do I learn how to love the fat or let
him go? Well, you got a choice to make. I
don't know how the loving was. Y'all was intimate for

(11:20):
the first time. Was he bringing it or was he
bringing it like a fat man? You gotta make that decision.
Was he bringing it or was he bringing it like
a fat man? So you got to ask that. Well,
it's over quick and it's slow. He tied, He tied.

Speaker 2 (11:36):
If he's exhausted fast.

Speaker 1 (11:39):
Oh, if he's overweight, you're saying.

Speaker 2 (11:41):
Well, you know, yeah, he ain't got no stamina, you know?
Was his skin in the way? Was? How bad? Was
he sack?

Speaker 1 (11:51):
Was his skin in the way.

Speaker 3 (11:53):
Well, when he was standing there, could you see everything?
Because you keep talking about he's concealing some other stuff.
When he was standing there, was his skin sagging down?
Didn't look like he had on mini skirt.

Speaker 2 (12:03):
I'm just asking, Wow, these are the things you need
to consider.

Speaker 3 (12:08):
How much loose skin big boy have? It ain't going nowhere.
You gotta go get that surgery, get that skin tanou
cut off. But he'd just spent all his money bleaching
his damn teeth and putting them face fillers in. That's
why his face need that fat in it, because he
done sunk and he skeletal.

Speaker 2 (12:25):
Now how muscular was he? Now?

Speaker 3 (12:28):
If he's a nice guy and y'all have a wonderful time,
do you've got to find out about it? Got to
get your hands on that driver's license next time he
getting naked, Just walk over there to the counter. He
can't get up real fast because he got to pull
all that skin together. Just going over there and open
up the wallet right in front and take a look
at that driver's license.
