Ive dne this before and sent flowers without putting my name on them. I simply wanted her to enjoy them on her birthday, since she tends to date dbags only, who would never send her flowers. Nothing wrong with it. I think the world needs to understand that at times we are willing to do things for someone else, just because we want them to enjoy those things, and not because we expect something in return. Be selfless not selfish.

Would it make any sense to have something (Flowers and/or chocolate) mailed to her anonymously, or should I go ahead and put my name on it?

Sign the card and put something like......"Hope you are having a great day, Happy Birthday". Simple, non committing, general best wishes. You never know where it might lead. I wouldn't make it an expensive gift though, moderate price, not cheap but not over the top, again, nice, simple to the point and pretty or tasty or both.

I wouldn't send her sh^t. And, you need some new guides to your life. The game is called "cop and blow". So, the person you should've sent something to, was your former friend. After all, he's the real winner.

Yeah, it appears these days that people believe it's impossible to simply be a nice guy! People at work even believe so. We have this female employee who is fairly new to the place. Whenever she is scheduled as a floor person instead of a cashier, the person working cashier always convinces her to work as a cashier. Simply put...they are taking advantage of her. I talk to them and tell them that they are scheduled as the cashier, so they should work as the cashier. When I say something along those lines, they immediately tell me to stop kissing up to the female employee and say that I must like her. I guess it's impossible for guys to simply be a nice person?
