The gift is a great idea; and fine if she wants to show off.
But the problem is her words - not in the gift, not in her bragging.

I see what you mean after reading your original post. It's the "a gift like this or nothing" part.

She got a "gift like this".
Now she should be equally happy with the "or nothing".

Do you think the guy got a gift of similar value?

Of course not, I bet all my money on that.

Shouldn't both sides give presents? Why do men buy flowers on valentines day, for example, and get nothing in exchange? Or do they get things too?

I have seen this status yesterday , and I totally agree.

Btw, this was written by a married man to a lovely woman, so we can't say he's some bitter single.

Personally, I don't think I got anything from my gf/wife for valentines day or even for typical men days (like November 19 or February 23).

Because of this I always buy something nice that we can share like chocolate with the whole family and make it an small moment in the evening of just expressing that we appreciate each other.
I only got a gift in the first year of our relationship. But I am mostly the giver when it comes to any romantic gestures. If I want a specific gift, I ask for it, as specific as possible. Otherwise I just gift myself :lol:

I'm similar I think it's much more fun to be the giver than the receiver. I didn't get to see my fiance but set up a chocolate making night for us (he is a chocolate feind). It was much more fun then buying each other presents.

Also Ive always thought valentines was more about people buying gifts for the person they love rather that men being forced to give gifts (I'm not discounting what you others have experienced).

I don't see the point of being forced to buy something for someone or feel like you should go out to dinner when you don't want too. We go out for dinner when we want to not just because a day dictates we should :roll:

Meh. Good for her. I don't care. Nor does my boyfriend. I live in Germany so I guess I'm not even jealous.
