I moved to Fla recently to be near my fam. My dad has some emergent finacial and medical issues going on that I am trying to deal with, I am a sinlge mom, and I have not found a job yet. My bank account is in the neg. I ahve to pay the health insurance premium ect... I have been talking to the worlds sweetest man for about a month. He knows that things are bad but doesnt know how bad. Today I got a late b day card from him with a check for $300!! I SO need the $$, but at the same time don't feel like I should accept such a large amount of money. I'm at a toatl loss for words.
What would you do?

  • I would call him and talk to him about it. Tell him that you received the card and you were very surprised by the money. See if you can get a feel for "why" he sent you the money. If he says "I know things have been tight and I thought that might help" then graciously say thank you and keep it. If he says "I've got a couple of different ways you can thank me for it" rip it up.

  • He obviously had it to give, i would say if your going to feel obligated to give him more attention or anything because u keep the money, then dont. However, he offered, didnt suggest there were strings attatched and you need it, look at it for the blessing that it is!!!
