So. I opened the christmas present she gave me.
It was brutal. In the best way.
It was a bottle of my favourite liqueur. Which is a huge reason i shouldn’t have opened it.
It was super-romantic. Because it means she remembered my favourite.
The present was given to me before this hiccup, as was my gift to her (a bottle of one of her favourite wines)…
The card was simple, but here was a sealed envelope inside. A letter of some sort. A letter shes told me not to read. Because of this hiccup (it was written before).
I can only assume it was something ridiculously romantic. But i cannot open it until she says so.
If it is what i think – its better for me not to read it. Unless she says so.
Ive written her a poem. I beautiful poem. It was going to be part of her main Christmas present. Which i now have to put on the back burner. Regardless of how i feel.
Argh. This is so frustrating.
Now. The gift from her parents:
I have opened the gift(s) from her parents… one of which is a box of chocolates. Simple enough. Theyre chocolates i like, and im considerably grateful for them.
The second, however, is maybe bit much. It was a £10 gift voucher for waterstones.
Considering it was her parents that questioned the speed of the relationship and are a little concerned by our age gap (10 years – im 29 – which i totally get) id feel a little awkward keeping it.
I feel like i should return it and say it was too much. I cant acceot a gift that expensive from people who are now concerned about me.
I dont know what to do. If im honest. I feel like i should return it. I dont feel comfortable accepting it.
But i dont want to upset/anger her or her parents any more than i may have done already.
Has anyone ever had to deal with a similar situation? Im so stuck.
My emotional self is about to cry if i carry on thinking about this. So goodnight all!
