A bonus Courting Disaster question this week…

A reader writes… Q: I dated an astronomy lover for a while. We’ve not been a couple for a little more than a year, but we’re still friends. Emotionally, we’ve both moved on. . . although she’s hinted she’d be open to getting back together (not interested–we make better friends).

While dating, she gave me a telescope for a birthday gift one year. She’s an astronomy buff and I think she wanted to give me something we’d both use. Thing is, I’m not that into it, so it’s been sitting in my closet this whole time. I know she doesn’t have one of her own.

I’m considering giving it back to her, the premise being she’d actually use it. However, I’m afraid it’ll hurt her feelings. I suppose I could sell it, but in my mind at least, it seems better to give it to someone who’d use it (her).

Your thoughts?

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