Birthday gift for a guy i just started dating
OP - I am MORE concerned about you agreeing to be ""exclusive"" with her after one date than worrying about a birthday gift..being "exclusive"" her idea ?maybe she just wants to use that tag so she can lay down for youhave yall had sex yet ???if not,,,,screw her brains out beyond beliefand call THAT her birthday gift...jesus.P - I am MORE concerned about you agreeing to be ""exclusive"" with her after one date than worrying about a birthday gift..being "exclusive"" her idea ?“It’s just that you keep making that keening sound.”“I just don’t think I can do it.”“Why the hell not?” My father pours coffee.“If I buy it, it’ll mean I care.”“You do care.” My mother looks at me over her reading glasses.“Well, I don’t want you-know-who to know that! ” My mother sets down her i Phone, clearly resigned to the fact that Words with Friends will have to wait.“Yes.”“For how long now? ” My father leaves the room.“It is perfectly acceptable to buy the person you’re dating a Christmas present after five months,” my mother says.“It would be fucked up if you didn’t!Surprise her with a couples massage followed by dinner.
”“Vito Corleone,” my father pounds his fist on the wall.“I don’t know who that is.”“For Christ sake.” My father leaves the room again.“Why don’t you ask your friends on Facebook what they think is appropriate,” my mother says. One that requires me to have noted interests, personal aesthetics, and preferences. On Facebook: “Nothing too expensive or commitment-y like diamonds in the first year. ” My mother sets her glasses on the table.“Because I hit purchase.”“You can’t hide the thunderbolt,” my dad says from the living room. Christ, man, don’t be ashamed.”“Maybe if I don’t wrap it,” I say. I remember thrilling at the sensation of his arm around me. maybe she just wants to use that tag so she can lay down for youhave yall had sex yet ??? I said, we've been dating since the day after black friday. We've been dating for nearly 6 weeks, and we've been on a lot of dates, and of course, we've had sex, and we have been having sex for over a month now.I specifically mentioned our first date so you have a timeline of how long we've been dating. For all she knows it could be one you had hanging around the house.”“He’s watching The Godfather again,” my mom says, then: “You do care about-”“Don’t say the name! I’d planned his gift—a copy of Edward Albee’s Seascape and a gum wrapper necklace—for 90 days, and watching him open it, I knew I’d scored. Although strangely, I’m fine with giving hand-jobs. Not only do I try to keep hand-job references to a minimum with them, but I don’t believe past trauma excuses present dysfunction.When he broke up with me the next day, I pointed out that maybe he should have pulled the plug before I gave him a Christmas present, not to mention a hand-job. Still, my pathological reluctance to drop money at my beloved JCrew when they’re offering a whopping thirty percent off an obviously perfect gift is probably not normal.You could go back and buy one of those things that she loved. You can go to bath body works and get her some lotion and candles or something.You can get her a gift certificate to a day spa, pedicure place so she can take her mom with or friend.” My dad yells from the living room.“You got engaged at two months,” I yell back.“So?” I hear my father flipping channels.“So I don’t trust your timetable! ”My first boyfriend and I had been dating two months when Christmas came along.You don't need to take her to the most expensive place around.Or you can forget the day spa and give her a facial yourself.:) I'm sure she will have a good time with whatever you decide.
