And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

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.

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.

1. Cake is delicious to eat and makes you feel happy!
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.

I think it's wonderful he remembered you at all. Honestly, if a partner forgets birthdays, anniversaries, ect. They just don't care! This man cares.

Dollars to donuts he heard you say once that you wish you had a pretty comforter, or admiring someones comforter. He thought he was going to thrill you with the fact that he was attentive.

I hope that you lavish him with praise, and act like he just gave you a 5 carat diamond!

Men are like dogs, (No offense guys).... They love to please. Give them praise and they will keep bringing you gifts!

OTOH if you act ugly about the gifts they give you, you will get less and less of them, because they will think that they can never please you.

Maybe you need to be more open about your wants - let him know in a nice way about things you like or would appreciate I've noticed that the real "witches" seem to be so direct and demanding, and I think men actually appreciate knowing what is expected of them...
But who am I to give advice. I got a - flashlight, yes a flashlight - on a second year of dating birthday. Needleess to say I jettisoned him quickly after that.
If he treats you well, and you are basically happy, give it another year, and practice the more direct approach to your needs. You are both very young.

he buys crappy gifts AND he won't sleep with you in the same bed, AND he keeps you as a secret from his family.

aw girlfriend, the blanket is the least of your problems.

dump his ass.oy. you know having read about your bf's other behaviour the blanket seems like the most romantic aspect of his character, i'm sorry but that one is not a keeper.

Re: So my Boyfriend Got me a Comforter for my Birthday After 1 Year of Dating...
this was a practical man giving a practical gift.

Maybe he (unconscionsly) is looking to see how you react to such things.

I have told my son (21 years old), that if a woman is looking for your money, she will want jewelry, expensive clothes, expensive meals, expensive shoes. You can count on this never changing with this female. You better have a great career and be ready to let her spend it all because she will, and she will point her finger at you when you are giving her enough of it.

A young lady who is satisfied with a comforter as a gift, is a young lady who has some wisdom, see's the gift for the warmth and character it is given in, and realizes this is a man who cares about your basic needs, not your shallow ones.

He is probably a keeper.

you guys are right. i never said i needed a comforter and i liked the one i had honestly. and its not like he "remembered" everyone kept telling him about it and bringing it up because i spent my last birthday alone. this is the first birthday we've ever spent together so i dont know what i was expecting. i am glad he remembered though.

like i said before, a flower and hand written note would have been more nice and personal. its not about dollar value or jewelry or whatever its about romance...

...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

I LOLed.

My husband is usually good at picking out gifts, but sometimes he'll throw me for a loop. 2 years ago, I received a set of pots and pans. (apparently I had mentioned that I needed to get a good new set.... ha ha)

OP, I think you scored, new comforter, hard drive and a costume?

It may not be gushing with romanticism, but maybe his way of thinking is even if he's not there to keep you warm, the comforter he got you will be.

Also maybe he didn't want to be cliche....

3) He still talks to his ex-girlfriend and seeems to do more for her than you?
4) He is 10 years older than you and will not let his parents know you are together?

I'm not sure what type of romance you are expecting out of this situation.

Just wait till you get married then it will be sexy things like vacuum cleaners,toasters,etc.
The comforter set is fine but I wonder if you had hinted at wanting a new comforter or given hints for other things.
Maybe he is just being practical.Personally I would rather have a comforter compared to roses for example because its something that lasts and you can keep.
Sounds like he may have bought you things he thought you wanted.A lot of men just dont have that incentive to try and whine and dine us to makes us swoon.As I have gotten older I have grown to like the practical man much more than the swooner.The practical man is usually a keeper with a level head .

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?

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
 Quoting: luckyophelia


You need to find a new boyfriend.Sorry but he isnt serious about you.Has nothing to do with your gift.From reading the other stuff posted since I replied earlier it doesnt appear you have much of a relationship.

I bought my wife a very nice throw-comforter for a wedding anniversary and had it embroidered with penguins (her absolute favorite animal) representing her and I. During the embroidering process we found out we were having a child and I added a baby penguin to the others and our last name on it. She absolutely loved it. Maybe he could have made it more personal but don't be spoiled. I'm happy to get boxers and socks on my gift-days. He could have gotten you nothing. Your comment about him stopping the day before during lunch break seems a bit bitter. Don't lie to him, if you don't like it let him know how else will he know how to please the almighty?

Re: So my Boyfriend Got me a Comforter for my Birthday After 1 Year of Dating...
consider the fact that you might be a pretty lame girlfriend Lucky. you might be "good enough" to stay with for a year. there are a lot of horrible women out there, and a "good enough" one is worth holding on to.. until you fall in love again. a girl who is "good enough" will never hurt your feelings when she ends up cheating or leaving you for whatever reason. how much do you make him laugh? how much passion is in your relationship? do you pay attention to him? do you know anything about him that his mates or his ex don't? when he asks you why you love him, can you say anything more than "because you're sweet and handsome and caring" (ie, shit anyone can say about anyone)

a comforter might be more than you deserve.
