One of my closest guy friends got me a jar of stars for Christmas a few days ago. Attached to the jar was a small card that said, "There's more to the present that meets the eye."
The jar had a sticker on it that said "Joyful seasons," so I thought he just wanted to wish me a happy winter or something (I'm pretty stupid, I know). I was pretty bored today so I decided to open the jar and unload the stars, just for the heck of it. I was poking one of the smaller stars when I noticed that there was a chain attached to this large pink star.
"What is this...?"
I lifted the chain up and realized that it was a necklace. Slowly and carefully, I unfolded the origami star (you make the star using a strip of paper) to take out the necklace because I was quite curious. As you all know, curiosity killed the cat.
When I was finished with opening up the star, I saw these words written on the strip of paper:
"Will you be mine?"
The necklace had a charm that consists of two hearts entangled with each other. One heart was decorated with tiny, sparkly jewels.
I do not know how to respond.
I consider the guy who sent me this a great friend but I don't think I have feelings for him despite how cute his gift was. Besides, we've been friends for six years and I really don't want to break our friendship.
How should I respond to this? What would you do if you were in my place? Should I give him a chance?
