Haven't read the thread really but chiming in anyway. So basically I am probably the worst boyfriend ever for Christmas, V-Day, and anniversaries. Its just not my thing at all. Its so bad that I literally warn the woman that have the misfortune of being my significant other. I tend to focus on everyday. I am thoughtful in ways that most aren't on non holidays. I literally always surprise with gifts, trips, and thoughtful gestures all the time. But on holidays I am always awful. It simply is not my super power. So this year my girlfriend says, babe you do so much for me, don't worry about Valentines day. I believed her...
Ok...so I can hear you guys laughing. I literally got her nothing for Valentines day. Because she was adamant she didn't want anything. So I get to work and I have a Fed Ex package. Inside is a heartfelt handwritten card, and a book. Inside the book are pages and pages of boudoir photos in lingerie. My name is on the cover of the book too, and the last page has more loving words on it about us and our relationship.. Then I go to her social media page, and she has a picture of us up saying she is with the love of her life. Ughhhh...talk about pressure. I hastily arranged to have four dozen roses delivered to her, and I also sent her a gift card to a high end lingerie shop that she loves. I am an idiot!!!! Fellas...Never listen to your lady when she tells you she doesn't want anything.
How am I supposed to give her nothing when she sent me a gift! Had I known I would have had one. I should have known better. I really really should have. For some reason I believed her. When I got home from work she sent me text saying open your freezer. Inside was a Dairy Queen ice cream cake that says I love you. Good grief. I am literally never listening to a woman again when they say they don't want anything! How am I supposed to accept those things and get her nothing. Sigh...I think I did well last minute though. But not falling into that trap again.
