Hi. Valentine's Day is coming. Should a man buy his girlfriend a gift?
The answer is no. This communicates so much: You don't need her approval. You won't buy her affection. You're not desperate to hang on to her.
Let's say your girlfriend is furious. She asks you why you didn't buy her anything. Just reply impassively, "No reason."
Let me submit something. So many girls break up with a guy after he lavishes her on Valentine's Day.
