Dear Connie,
You may give him a card. You are too young to give him the gift he wants.
You should tell him, “Mr. Boy, I wish for you to address me by my familiar name, Thankful.”

A birthday card is enough.

Just tell him that your name is Luka and that you live on the second floor.

Send him a card.
The next time he says "Miss Thankful Constant Reader", smile and tell him you'd like for him to simply call you "Miss Thankful Constant Reader"

MISS THANKFUL C.R.

Do not send a gift.  Sending a Birthday card is OK.
I just asked the Magic 8 Ball. If you should ask him to call you by your given name. “My sources says NO.” He should continue to call you “Miss.” Three or four months is too soon, to get too familiar.
Stay single.

Dearest Constant Reader, a card with sincere birthday wishes would be lovely. You may be forthright with the young man the next time you see him and he addresses you. Simply say, “please call me Constance.”
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

1. You can send him a card but a gift would be inappropriate in these circumstances.

2. You can just ask him directly to call you by your name rather than Miss...

Thank you @Bart Ell, @juan, @anniem, @Mr Apnea, @PolkaDot, @FISH and @Aquarius, for playing the What Will Mrs. Thompson Say? game.

1. A card is certainly permissible to send to the boy.  Also, a small gift like a book.
2. Due to her age, Constance can start addressing the boy by his first name and I guess, like osmosis, the boy will start addressing her by her first name.  (When she becomes older, the man will have to ask permission to call her by her first name.)  Everyone missed this second question, but technically, FISH's Magic 8 Ball was correct in saying 'no' to the question that FISH asked it, so I gave it a point.

Bart Ell: 1 point
juan: 1 point
Mr Apnea: 1 point
anniem: 1 point
FISH: 1 point
FISH's Magic 8 Ball: 1 point
PolkaDot: 1 point
Aquarius: 1 point

Dear Tro,
1. You should not have left Heather on the porch unless she was throwing one of her jackass fits.
2. You abandoned her. Of course she could take up with another man.
3. You should tell your sister to butt out. It probably will be a waste of breath, but you can at least ignore her.

I’m with Juan on this one.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.
