I gave my girlfriend's Christmas present to her new man

DEAR DEIDRE: I took my ex-girlfriend’s Christmas presents to her house, hoping we’d get back together – but another guy opened the front door.

We’ve been together for over a year. I’m 23 and she’s 22.

Things were good until recently, when she started picking fights about the smallest thing, and said she wasn’t sure we were compatible. 

Two weeks ago, she asked me to give her space. I agreed.

But by Christmas Eve, she still hadn’t contacted me, and wouldn’t respond to my texts.

So, I decided to deliver her gifts personally.

The main present is a gorgeous necklace I spent a lot of money on, even though I’m a student.

The guy who opened the front door is on our course. Smirking, he took the wrapped box and just shoved it on the floor next to the door.

I was so upset and confused I then trudged home. 

Since then, I haven’t stopped crying.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds like she was too cowardly to break-up, so asked for space.

Don’t jump to conclusions about this guy – he may just be a friend.
