Hi… I need help!
There is this girl that I went to Kindergarten-3rd grad with and we were in girl scouts together. Our troop reconnected on facebook a few months ago, but I haven’t spoken to this girl in years. We were never really good friends or anything. But she is always writing on my facebook wall and stuff. She posted something today asking when the wedding is (next week!) and where I’m registered because she wants to get me a gift. This makes me feel so uncomfortable. I’m going to message her, but I want to make sure this sounds okay first:
The wedding is in CA on November 5 (oh my gosh it is coming up so quickly!)
You are too sweet but you totally don’t need to get us anything! Just your well wishes 🙂
When are you due? Your belly looks so cute 🙂 I’ll be there in a few years!
Is that an okay way to handle this?

i think its good. i would take out the last part about asking about when she is due and that her belly looks cute. if she is as clingy as you made her sound, she will latch onto that and keep trying to connect with you

I wouldn’t take it as anything more than she just wants to be nice. I get not really wanting her to go to the trouble of getting you a gift, and I think that your reply is nice!

Yes that looks good and it shows you are courteous – like u’re not just giving her your address to get gifts
it looks like she’s expecting a child – so to save yourself the trouble of not buyinbg her a baby gift in return, you should decline.

Your message sounds good. I think you did a great job of being polite and nice, but not giving too much.
Besides the facebook awkwardness, I hope you’re enjoying the time before your big day. Congrats!
