Hey, sometimes buying gifts for someone else feels times better than it does buying something for yourself. But in all honesty, when it comes to men that you are romantically interested in; be careful. You may think buying and giving gifts nothing big, but, it does matter; especially when you are only dating and not sure if he is committed to you. Your radiance and openness is a gift bigger than the size of the number on the price tag of your birthday or Christmas gift.
You, me and every other female on the planet has made, or IS making such a mistake big time. Here are your 6 Rules to Follow: So…why choose the more expensive option? Is there even a good reason? In fact, where you can, spend less. The idea is simple. So this rule is VERY counter-intuitive in practice. Or do you still keep one or two favourite pieces that you wear over and over again?
A man and anyone, really will remember the gifts you give that mean something to THEM. And this happens subconsciously. Or 2 make a simple purchase that is meaningful and leave it at that. It could be a mug, or you could make a lamb roast yum, lamb! Really, are you truly attracted to a man whom you need to buy things for and take care of?
Answer honestly for yourself. If yes, then do things that encourage him doing that to you by NOT buying more, and not buying more expensive. Your ability to react to and enjoy anything that a man gives you is far more interesting than your ability to give expensive gifts.
When it comes to gift giving…. Most are also not interested in pointless, fluffy, jingly things. You might appreciate cupcakes. But not when you have NO idea where your relationship with this man is going! You have to wait to give such sentimental gifts. Now, by sentimental, it depends on your relationship situation.
Just be mindful and conscious all the way. Do you really need to get something extra? If so, why are you getting it? So keep sentimental gifts to something small like a key-ring with a personal joke or personal photo attached, or a mug with a special quote or photo on it. Look, you can make this mistake and maybe things will still work out if you and him are very compatible.
And just make or buy a nice card to wish him happy birthday or happy Christmas. And it only brought my husband and I closer, and he felt far worse about it than I ever did!
If a man wants to make you happy, you have a good man. If instead he just calls you a bitch and never comes back because you cried over the present, well good! It was either going to be this Christmas or some other random reason for him to take off. Some men are just not compatible with you like that; and some of them…well, they have a weak masculine energy like that.
Unless you were intending to criticize him and be a bitch about it. If it makes you over the moon, BE over the moon, if it upsets you, let it upset you! If it surprises you, LET it surprise you! Click here to check our popular program Understanding Men. Now I am handing it to you.
