Handle This: He Got You a Gift But You're Empty Handed

Handle This: He Got You a Gift But You're Empty Handed

You've been dating a great guy for six months. Today is your anniversary and you're celebrating at your favorite restaurant, just the two of you. You had a busy work week and before you know it, the day's completely gotten away from you. Instead of having time for your boyfriend to pick you up, you had to meet him there. On the way to the restaurant, you stopped to get a card and had just enough time to scribble a few words from the heart before the hostess sat you.

When you saw your boyfriend waiting for you at the table, your eyes immediately focused in on the small blue box sitting on your plate — he got you a gift and you're empty handed! You guys hadn't talked about exchanging anything, in fact, you thought he'd be impressed that you brought a card but he clearly one upped you. This night was supposed to be fun but all you can feel is guilty, so how would you handle it?

Is it really that hard (no pun) to figure it out? Guys don't want neatly wrapped presents... sure they're a nice surprise, but we all know what they want.

i agree tidalwave. (lol)to k8rckstr: every relationship is different, but for me at 2 months, we probably would've only been on 4 -6 dates (my schedule doesn't permit me to hang out with a guy everyday or to go on a date every other day to get to know him)...not enough for me to say "let's be boyfriend and girlfriend."

blow job? at 6 months?!?!?!?HA!!!!at 6 months, you just realize that you're even exclusive with that person...he ain't getting the luxury of blow jobs yet.and blow jobs are reserved for special stuff, not "oh your dumb a*s bought me a gift on our 6 month anniversary like a punk, and i (as the expected sensitive counterpart) didn't even think to get you shit" deal. you give blow jobs when that muthaf*cka gets a promotion, or remembers to load the dishwasher consistently for a week....not because i feel bad. no body likes pity head.

By the way, if you act like this bothers you, it will only make him feel bad, so don't let on!!

I wouldn't feel bad about this! He's (hopefully) just doing something sweet and not doing it with the expectation of getting something in return. Just think of it like him bringing you flowers randomly -- be super appreciative and that will make him feel great!

i wouldn't do anythingi'd say thanks for the tiffany's box buddy! and then we'd make sweet love later.the best way to make this not awkward is to avoid it and say "oh my god, you really shouldn't have, you're amazing" and just make it seem like you're happy he one-upped you! he will love the fact that he made you happy!

LOL fluffyhelen. Love it. Anyways, I would pay for dinner, but not make a big deal out of it. My bf and I do something nice every month like Jude C - it's because we've been together for 3 and a half years but have spent the majority of those years long distance (him in the UK, me in the US - now I'm in the UK) so each month we like to remind us of how strong we've been to stay with each other through all the difficult times. And it makes us not take our relationship for granted either when we think of how lucky we are that we're currently in the same city. I used to be grateful when we were simply in the same time zone! But we used to make a bigger deal out of each month when we were living apart - now we just use the day as an excuse to do something fun or go out to dinner.

6 month anniversary gift?? that's unsexpected, so I wouldn't feel bad at all, since it would be a surprise to me. I'd offer to give him an extra good back rub afterwards or something lol

i don't think we would've even noticed it was 6 months at 6 months....i wouldn't have felt bad about not having a gift. i would've said, "oh wow. Dinner would've been just fine. we didn't have to do the gift thing...thank you though." (give him the "you're so sweet" look).

I would make something up on the fly and be like 'Oh I wanted to take you mini-golfing this weekend as a special treat!' or something fun and random.
