My male friend gave me an expensive tennis bracelet for Christmas. I already explained to him that I am not interested in a relationship with him, but he insisted that I take the bracelet anyway, because he bought it for me & no one else. Now, I feel really guilty about keeping it. Should I give it back?
You should not have taken the gift to begin with, but now that you have, giving it back isn’t going to help. Don’t be surprised if your friend tries to discuss a relationship again. Be firm and let him know that you don’t want to be with hm that way. Don’t take anymore expensive gifts from him and try to avoid giving mixed signs.
