Get real. That is totally acceptable
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25900330


You're being shallow and materialistic. At least he remembered your birthday.
I agree with the above poster.
Get fucking real.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15808670

I'm not trying to be selfish and I really don't want to come across that way so if this is just irrational thinking then please let me know people

...I just really was expecting something a little more sentimental after a year. I'm glad he thought of the gesture and tha he took the time off his lunch break the day before to go get it for me, and I really love him, i just thought I'd get something a little more personal and intimate.

What do you guys think about this? I'm curious

the part bolded is the problem...

that blanket may save your life one day and keep you warm/alive.

Hopefully it's a really nice comforter?

Don't put too much thought into it, really, some people just have a hard time buying gifts. At least it's something you can use, maybe? I guess it could have been worse... My bf for Xmas a couple years ago gave me a 100 dollar bill... after I gave him a couple gifts a week leading up to Xmas and a few more on Xmas day... granted, all small to mid-value gifts but still, the effort. And I got a freaking hundred dollar bill. I was a bit upset, we talked about it and the following year he did amazing. Maybe just let him know how you feel?
 Quoting: Artlicious


I probably would have rather had the 100 dollar bill...i know that sounds bad. he said he got it at target and i know it was about 40/50 bucks probably closer to 30/40-45 with his discount card
 Quoting: luckyophelia


Look its not about what you would rather have, hes spent that much money on you on GIFTS he thought you would like, he didn't actually have to get you anything and he has probably put a lot of thought into the gifts he has bought you. After all they are all very USEFUL.

ya and i appreciate it and it is a useful. maybe im just insecure because he was going to give his ex 5000 to stay at an apartment by herself until august and let her have his other car for a few months so part of me wonders if hes really serious about our relationship because he says he is but his actions are saying otherwise. thats what it comes down to. i just dont feel loved by him in general and maybe hes just shy. i guess a year isnt that long so im still getting to know him and i shouldnt jump to conclusions or overanalyze. i really dont wanna perpetuate the female american bitch stereotype

Mens brains work differently to ours, most don't see the use in a balloon or cake or even jewellery in fact as I don't.

1.Cake gets eaten
2.Balloons pop
3.Jewelery does nothing apart from stick to you like some kind of stamp and provides nothing useful at all.

Re: So my Boyfriend Got me a Comforter for my Birthday After 1 Year of Dating...
I try to keep a list throughout the year of things my boyfriend says he wants. Whenever he mentions something I try to remember to write it down for later.

Then when it comes along to Christmas / Birthday, he is always super happy and surprised that I remembered what he said he wanted 6 months earlier. Plus I prefer to buy a lot of small gifts that have sentimental value, or things he really wants, versus spending a huge chunk of money on something that he will get little use from.

He also got me an external hard drive off ebay and a cool halloween costume...then later said it was part of my birthday.

I wasn't even pushing for the hard drive or even the costume and if I would have known that included my birthday gift then I wouldn't have gotten it.

I think that was a great gift. I mean your bedding is very important since you sleep on it every night. A comforter is intimate. You will sleep with it every night. A great comforter makes you feel warm, happy and relaxed.

Yea I guess it is a good gift. We sleep in separate rooms and mines a converted garage so i definitely need the warmth
 Quoting: luckyophelia


why do you sleep in seperate rooms?
what is a comforter? like a duve?
um unless you guys are guerrila army poor, that is not a romantic gift.but it's not something to get upset about either. not as upset as i'd be if i'd have to sleep in seperete beds.just tell your bf what kind of gifts you like, as in, not practical but romantic, or whatever....

2. Balloons are fun to pop and suck helium from.. LOL They also bring back memories of less stressful times in ones life.
3. Jewelry can be very special, something that can be passed on to children. Something that holds material value, ie: precious metals. Something you can wear everyday to remember the person who gave it to you.
