POLL: In the Stars...?

Tuesday, December 08, 2009 - 12:00 AM

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?
