This week’s question…

A reader writes… Q: I’ve been divorced for six months and recently began dating. Lately, I’ve gone out with an older man who is quite successful in business. We just had our third date (dinner) last weekend, and he gave me an expensive piece of jewelry. I was shocked. I tried to be gracious and thanked him, but it really made me feel uncomfortable. I am a woman of modest means, and I’ve never been that excited about jewelry or expensive clothes. I have this icky feeling he thinks I will be obligated to him if he buys me expensive things. He has spent quite a bit of money on our dates. Am I reading too much into this? Should I return the jewelry?

Don’t answer here… go on over to the CD site and offer some advice.
