I spent all my wages on girlfriend’s gift and she dumped me

DEAR DEIDRE: I SAVED up my wages for four months to buy my girlfriend a necklace she had been eyeing up.

I’m a 20-year-old delivery driver and it was really out of my price bracket but I wanted to make a fuss of her and show her just how special she is to me.

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.

We had been together for a year and she seemed really pleased with my gift.

But the very next day she said she felt the present was too much and she didn’t want to get heavy so soon.

She has finished with me and says her mind is made up.

I’m devastated and think that if she felt the present was too much, she should have refused to accept it or could have given it back.

She has done neither.

DEIDRE SAYS: She really does like that necklace, doesn’t she!

There is no harm in asking for the gift back for the very reason you have explained.

If she doesn’t do the gracious thing, I’m afraid there is no recourse as you gave it to her as a gift.

Try to focus on moving on with your life. It sounds like this is a relationship best left in the past.

I’m sending you my support pack Mend Your Broken Heart.
