When I was in high school, the big thing on Valentine's Day were the flowers sold for the Key Club's annual fundraiser. It was called The Key Club's Carnation Sale or something like that.
Anyway, I hated that day. The popular girls had boyfriends who would buy them a dozen or more of those flowers, and they'd carry them around all day like the Queen of England. I never had a boyfriend like that, and I'm not sure I really cared about getting a flower anyway, except I think there was a part of me that felt left out if I didn't. And I hated that feeling.
So here's what I want to know... why do girls feel like the more the guy buys her things, the more he loves her? I mean, okay, yes, some guys are really good at picking out gifts and doing the right thing on every holiday that comes along. But some guys aren't. And I'd argue whether a guy is or isn't doesn't say anything about how much he cares for a girl.
Am I right? What do you think?
Does it make you mad if your boyfriend isn't the gift-giving type? And if so, do you try to change his ways, or accept him for who he is?
