Awww! Yeah get him something! I did with mine - LV shirt 😬😂 and it snowballed from there, he gifted me Dior heels and it goes on and on but felt like he wouldn’t have if I didn’t set the tone.

If gift giving is your love language, do it!

Do it if that’s how you wanna show you appreciate him. I bought my ex boyfriend several gifts just because I wanted to, and I don’t wish I didn’t. I’m glad he has them. It’s just my love language.

He must be thinking the same that should he gift you when you have never gifted him before. Someone has to initiate it, so its totally okay for it to be you.

Some of us guys are a bit weird where we dont realize how important gifts are to women.

What is the best way to attract a new mate? I got out of a 7 year relationship (he was cheating on me for half of it) and I’m so confused on where to even start. I have a therapist and working on my trust issues - but I have self confidence issues. I’ve been burned for being ‘unattractive’. But I’ve seen girls that are objectively more unattractive than me have mates. So it must be a confidence issue? Those girls seem to glow while I am so sad. Or it’s the guys I go on dates with?

12 years and my partner won't do chores. Vent vent vent. I make 80% of our income and pay 80% of expenses. I'm also tidy but hate cleaning. Partner works 20-30 hours/ week no kids and is a slob. 3 months ago made chore list, got them to sign on the list the 50/50 split that it was fair. 3 months later I've been doing my chores they haven't done any. Brought it up today and was accused that the list was unfair they refuse and they dont have time because they must "work to subsidize your expenses"

Mother in law constant interference has caused friction between me and my partner. She is over possessive about him to the extent how he should be fed , what he should be fed, what he should think and how he should perceive things, when he shd be happy and when he shd feel hurt everything is communicated to him in a subtle way. He gets influenced too.
