On Valentines day I bought her a dozen from the supermarket..they were 10 bucks there and 50 bucks at the florist..Why spend 50 ?..She didn't like that ..
...On X mas I bought her a white gold chain that she wanted but was mad cause I bought it from a pawn shop ..Why spend 130 when I can get it for 70..?
Whatever happened to ITS THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS ?

"Honey I bought your Christmas gift at a pawn shop" should have gotten you killed.

does she really need to know the origin of the gift?

sounds like you need to give her the gift of kicking her ass out the door... fuck her. snotty little bitch. I can understand if she learned how to knit, spent many, many hours knitting you socks for xmas and you rolled up with a set of steak knives.

just the dump the ingrate... there are hundreds and hundreds of better women anyway... she is the type that will never be happy - do you really need to be under appreciated?

possibly, but then why did he bother to tell her where he bought used jewelry or cheaper flowers. I think you're too open my friend, although I never bought used jewelry.

i agree. don't tell her where they came from. buy a pretty little box for the necklace and put the roses in a nice vase before giving them to her.

but if she truly loved you, she wouldn't care where they came from.

i love all my gifts no matter what. it is nice to know i was remembered.

I tried to teach my boys to be thoughtful of there mother and they are. I think that will carry over to how they treat the women in their lives and later they be teaching their children if they have any. Its important to treat your lover as the most important thing in your life. Plus there is no reason not to.

part of being appreciative of any gift should be something we learn early. for the moms here....remember trying to act enthused about receiving macaroni necklaces from our kids. putting them on to head to work, trying to remember to remove before we got there and then putting them back on before we got back home. sweet memories.

Yah, dude -just don't tell her where you get stuff! Did you bring the flowers in the house in a grocery bag -stuffed in with the milk and coffee? Did she have to peel a pawn sticker off the jewelry? "Here you go, honey -saved 50 bucks on that!"

hehehehehehe

things that parents try to instill on their sons does not translate out there in the mating game... if they want to get laid, then they need to become confident, strong and independent... good sense of humor and healthy lifestyle doesnt hurt.

Decency thoughtfulness are the important basic tools to teach children, and no better way to do that is through your own action. Its the foundation of all the things you listed as important.

Getting laid or wanting to is a natural thing. It aint happenning if you dont have goodness. At least not a second time. And relationships dont last without that foundation.

It's not the money -it's all in the presentation. Your product may be great, but the packaging may lose you your best customer!

lol..thanks for the input....in reality she isn't all that bad ..I keep her in check !!..The problem with her is that she thinks there is a difference in quality when she sees a NAME or a PRICE TAG..in some cases she is right but most of the time she is wrong..
I am not broke and can afford to buy her expensive stuff ..but I am also a man of principle..and whats right is right...

EX: We were at a seafood restaraunt last summer and when I saw the bill I noticed that one of the plates we ordered was $ 3.00 higher..so I confronted the waitress and the waitress looked at me like I had 3 heads..I told her don't worry..you're getting a $15.00 tip but ..I am not cheap and don't care about the $3.00 ..but why should I pay what I shouldn't have to pay ?

Same thing with gifts and shopping for clothes,food and whatever else...
I find items almost half the price at other stores...< Same item..

It was an analogy -you are the "packaging" -the the value of the gift, or the gift itself, is insignificant (unless she's just a gold-digger). Flowers are good -they're all the same. Jewelry is great -and the same piece of jewelry is the same no matter how much it costs (and paying less for the same piece of jewelry is a wise investment).

However, how you give it to her is extremely important.
You can slide it across the table to her on your way to watch the game -or you can give it to her after cleaning the house, preparing a romantic candle-lit dinner and giving her a nice neck-rub as she sips the wine you bought and poured for her. If she wants money, just bring her some cash and throw it at her on the way to the man-cave. Otherwise, it's probably not that she wants better gifts, but to feel more appreciated.
Maybe -I don't know the whole story, but this is generally true.

"Presentation" -learn it, live it!
