Person A is seen as quite attractive by most people and is charming, outgoing etc., thus they receive a lot of date offers, but none ever pan out. Person B is their friend who has had a crush on them for a long time, but hasn’t said anything because Person A has stated that they’re bored with being asked out and dating. At Person A’s birthday party, A receives nice but highly impersonal gifts from everyone, whereas Person B gets them something they know A has wanted for a really long time (first edition of their favourite book perhaps) and means a lot to them. How Person A reacts is up to you. OT3 possibility: Person C is their mutual friend who had to convince Person B that it wasn’t “stalkerish” to get Person A the gift.
