Q: My ex and I decided not to talk to one another since our breakup. But their birthday is coming up and I want to give him a gift that I had been planning for a long time. Would it be okay to give him a gift anyways? He's not in my life anymore, but I don't want to pretend he never existed. I'm afraid that it would look like I'm desperate or want to get back together, which isn't the case at all. Is it okay or would I just look desperate? Should I make my intentions clear?

@Spudsy2061 Interesting thoughts! I enjoy reading your point of view! Thanks for sharing!
I believe it's not a good idea.
Update everyone!! This anon got back to me and let me know that she decided, ultimately not to give him the gift. She said her reason was because she realized she was giving it because she was hoping to cause some sort of reaction from him, which she thought was wrong and so she decided to keep it at least until she can give it for the right reasons only.
Sounds like a insightful and caring woman. Wish her the best!
@redridergirl I told her to keep checking the card so I'm sure she'll see this :) Thanks for all your advice for her!!!
