When Christmas rolled around, I thought it would be appropriate to give him a gift.
If you don’t give something and he does, you feel like a jackass.
And if you do give something and he doesn’t, you feel like a dumbass.
The sad reality is, most of us would rather feel like a jackass than a dumbass.
So, my advice to the ladies on holiday gift giving to new dudes is this: .
That doesn’t make you less, though, it just makes him less attracted to you – and consequently, makes you less attracted to him (which sucks for you, too).
If you are buying for a male friend, you can THEORETICALLY go all out, because you’re not romantically interested in him.It’s nice to put a smile on someone else’s face, isn’t it?But in all honesty, when it comes to men that you are romantically interested in; be careful.Two years ago at this time, I had been dating a guy named Jorge on and off for about a year.I had ended it twice because he wasn’t ready for a relationship and I was. But he kept coming back, saying that he really liked me and wanted to “try.” And I was a sucker.” If he blows it off, play it safe and stick with the guidelines above. So, remember the basics: And incidentally, ladies, don’t go apoplectic if he gives you something super lame. UPDATE: I have expanded this post and included a gift guide for men – read it here!
