Single Gal

An ex-boyfriend sent flowers and candy for Valentine's Day. We've been split up for over a year now and I have been avoiding his calls. Do I thank him or ignore him?

If you've asked him to stop calling and he has continued, you may ignore him and his gift. If you are "avoiding" his calls and haven't told him you are no longer interested in any kind of a relationship with him, you must thank him for the gift and explain this to him once and for all. It is impolite for you to simply hope he fades away, especially since he seems to be encouraged by your lack of directness.

Good luck.
