Gift Giving and Women

Written by admin, Saturday, October 31st, 2009 in Q&As

What is appropriate gift giving protocol for women? I’m now dating a girl I met a few months ago. Should I buy her gifts? How often?

Buying gifts for women is a very touchy subject: you are almost always going to be toeing the line between appearing uncaring and appearing like you are buying her off.

The general rule for this sort of thing is to buy a girl gifts sparingly and thoughtfully. Buying gifts in “bulk”- that is, what a lot of people casually call buying a girl off- almost always appears crass and tacky. Doing so a lot of times appears that you are trying to “buy” her with gifts to convince her to stay with you- and it very well make her stay with you just for the monetary benefit. Additionally, it may appear to her that you think she is shallow enough to stay with you for money. It’s just a damn sticky situation.

Long story short, wait until meaningful times to purchase gifts. Don’t wait until obvious holidays or anything- give gifts randomly and sparingly, and put a lot of thought into them. Those are ultimately worth more than any amount of meaningless gifts.
