Accept money from ex-boyfriend?

Due to a number of events beyond my control - medical issues, death of a contractor who was doing work on my home - I find myself short on cash. I make a good living, but I freelance, and my next job does not start for a few weeks. I recently ran into an ex-boyfriend who offered me a 'no strings attached' gift to help me get through the rough patch. At first I was offended and said no, but I've been reconsidering my position. I could really use the money, and I have no reason to doubt my ex's intentions. But part of me just does not want the assistance. Am I letting pride get the best of me? Or am I setting myself up for a problem? .
