Feel kind of crappy


#1

Disclaimer: Wall of text is coming. Read at your own risk.

So my third year anniversary with my girlfriend is coming up in two weeks, and normally the two of us celebrate in a rather modest fashion (e.g. we go out to eat, give each other some small gifts, and typically just spend the day together), but this year is different. I could tell for a few weeks now that she has been acting particularly different; more specifically she has been rather giddy about the gift she got me. Generally, when it comes to her and gifts, she tends to go for things that are more sentimental rather than a “cool” factor. But anyway, I could tell something was different this time.

A day or two ago she started asking me if I had any idea what she had gotten me/ was planning on getting me, and I had no clue. So I decided to ask a few questions, and she gave me a few hints here and there. To get to the point, I really had no idea either way what she had gotten me. Then today out of the blue, she asked me if I was still considering getting an iPod Touch, and I told her probably not, I really didn’t have the money to spend it on something that I felt I wouldn’t get a ton of use out of (I already own a 120 gb zune). She really didn’t say much after that, and I didn’t think anything of it at the time.

Now this is where things get interesting (sort of). I decided to hop on her computer and check shoryuken and my Facebook. To my surprise, she had forgotten to close one of her windows on her computer, and suddenly everything started to make more sense. It was a notification from Best Buy saying that her transaction had been completed, and that her item, a 32 gb Ipod Touch was being on its way. At first I could hardly keep myself from smiling, but then suddenly a feeling of horror and even sadness came over me. I soon realized that I have practically no money to spend on her. I have a number of bills I have to pay this month, and the way things are looking, theres no way I will be able to come close to what she spent on me (which was almost 300 dollars).

Anyway, it just sort of sucks. We never really spend that much on each other for gifts, so now that she has, I kind of feel like I need to do the same, but there’s just no possible way I can do it. :-p In conclusion, thanks for taking the time to read this wall of text, and if anybody has any suggestions that would be great, other wise thanks again.

tl;dr version: GF bought me an expensive gift, i have no money to buy her anything even close to the same amount for our anniversary.

If this relationship is strong I think she can handle the fact that Obama stole all the money you were going to spend on her gift on rims

lol, thanks for the responses. I’m not particularly looking for advice, although it is welcome. I’m really just kind of ranting at the fact that I feel rather helpless here. I think maybe I’ll just try to cook her a really nice dinner, and scrounge up whatever money I can and buy her a DS possibly.

Pawn the Touch and use the money you get from it to buy her something else.


#6

Give your girlfriend the gift of SRK celebrity by posting naked pictures of her.

…You were asking how to make her feel crappy too, right?


#7

and that guy sold his watch to buy his woman combs

Doesnt Vb4.0 feature blogs?

Unless your girlfriend is a gold digging whore, most women want to know
that thought was put into the gift rather than how much it cost. Cook for her, but come up with some stuff that she will like that shows her you paid attention to all the shit she says. If she likes wine, get her some nice wine glasses, a nice bottle of wine and then cook something that compliments the wine you bought. Shit like that.

#14

I would just tell her the truth and say hey, I got to pay bills and I love this gift, but I gotta pay bills first. Idk how I would react either but that is probably the best I could do unless I got all animal on her and said to prepare for the most intense sex ever…

Alright, so when the anniversary comes around, dress up really nice, maybe buy some chocolates, and do a barrel roll.

tl;dr: barrel roll


#16

So far, doing a barrel roll is the best advice. lol j/k.

Seriously though, I <3 you guys.

Yea just tell her how broke you are, if she stays with you still then you should try to marry her cause most bitches don’t dig broke dudes.

My good friend is lucky as hell, his wife is hot and she buys him all sorts of gadgets, tv’s, xbox shit, motorcycles, clothes ect ect. He did the smart thing and married her and they been hitched for 10 years now.


#18

You’re fucked. Just break up with her, it’ll will save you alot of hassles.


#19

Yeah, I’m pretty sure you can mange to steal something again, thief. Just don’t get caught this time. :tup:
