DEARSUGAR Needs Your Help: Ugh, My Ex Got Me A Holiday Gift

DEARSUGAR and Wrong Move Rona need your help. Rona, my advice is that if you are going to recycle your ex, then you might as well give him a recycled gift. Is there anything that you've been given that you'd like to get rid of that is still in decent shape?

I hope that you can see my metaphor in here as well. You should also be getting this ex of yours out of your life - for good! Readers, what are some of your suggestions for a holiday gift for her ex boyfriend that she's recently slept with?

Dear Sugar,
Out of nowhere, my boyfriend of a year broke up with me this past summer. Even though I am still in love with him, we didn't speak until a few months ago, when he moved into the same apartment building as me. I decided I would try to be friends to avoid any awkwardness that could develop from bumping into each other all the time.

We began sleeping with each other occasionally (yes, yes yes, I know that was very wrong), but I've tried to get back together with him and he really doesn't seem interested. Now, out of the blue, the other day, my friend told me that he bought me a Christmas present! I'm not sure how to react, so any suggestions are welcome! Wrong Move Rona

Say, "Thank you; you shouldn't have" and pat him kindly on the shoulder. (The holiday is over now; I assume you didn't get anything for him . . .hopefully.)

Don't count the present until you have it...he might change his mind and NEVER give it to you...or your friend could be wrong...besides if he does give you a present just say THANKS..nothing is official so don't stress over it and don't get him one! Thanks would do.

I've had a similar problem. I moved out to LA and never thought I'd ever see my ex again. Unfortunately we are neighbors. Not next door or anything, but we ran into each other at the laundry mat, and discovered that we live within a few miles from each other. It was awkward, but there was no sex involved. I decided to leave well enough alone, but there are still feelings. It's hard and I know how you could give in, seeing as how you still love him. Take the gift and don't give him one. If he doesn't want the relationship, then the present should have no strings attatched as well. LA seems way too much like the place to be, and I like the area and beautiful weather, but not how crowded it is sometimes. Where are you from Wrong Move Rona?

accept the gift but dont buy him one too that would make him think your thinking about him but he has to think your not so he can want to get back together
