A little help? Gift for my girlfriend...

Recommended Posts

Well, it's not exactly a gift, more like a nice gesture I could use some help with. We started dating the day before Valentine's Day in 2009, so it's about to be what we call "Anniversaratine's." So this year, part of her present will include a list of interesting or humorous things that have happened since our first date. Here are a few examples,

-Shaquille O'Neal has played for 3 different teams

-Nic Cage has starred in 7 films

-My friend's roommate has peed on the floor 3 times

And so on.

What else can I include on this list?

I think your list will have more meaning if its a list of humorous things that have happened with YOU two in the last two years, to show what you've been through, etc.

Otherwise, yeah, you're "that guy".

Trust me, a list of meaningful things where (for the most part) only you two would get the references takes more thought, than potentially googling a list of "funny" things that have happened since you started dating.

Well I am including personal things that only we would get, but why would I come here to ask for that stuff?

Well, obviously you wouldn't come here for that. I didn't know that that was part of the plan in the first place. I guess my updated advice is, don't come here and ask anything for a list...if you want to include a list of this sort, make it 100% personal.

He won't make it to another Valentine's Day if he gives her that list.

Sure he will, if its personal, and not just a lame attempt at being unconventional. Corny and personal works for some people.

Well, I was talking about his original list.

The idea you gave him about making it a personal list, I actually agree with. Although I'd probably skip the list thing altogether. Then again, I'm not sure of the other poster's age. That bit of info could be more helpful.

I'm 20, my girlfriend's 19. The majority of the list will be stuff that only us or our circle of friends will understand. I just thought I could get some help from ES with some pop-culture info I could incorporate. For example, the reason I included Nic Cage in my original list is because I always make fun of his voice, and just generally hate him for some reason.

The Shaq thing was just an example to give you an idea of what kind of stuff I was looking for.

She's been complaining about how I never do anything cutesy or romantic, so I decided to give this a shot.

I don't think there's anything wrong with it, the idea's got merit if done correctly. Especially since you got screwed with the while V-Day/Anniversary falling basically together, its a good "enhancer" for another gift, to give it that personal touch.

And I feel your pain, though. I've got X-Mas, Anniversary, V-Day, and her B-day all within a month and a half, for my girlfriend.

And a side note: Its hard to force being "romantic". If its not something you'd normally do (not on a day-to-day basis, but just something that isn't "you"), you have to be careful that it doesn't come off funny.

Cool, Btw, this example I gave above is if you decided to go with your original list. Again, I wouldn't go that route, though.

Actually, that Big Ben getting accused of rape twice might be pretty funny to include. We have a friend that's a ridiculously huge Steelers fan, and she always gives him hell about cheering for a rapist.

Again, I just came to ES for some pop-culture items that I might want to include. So far my list is about 90% stuff that involves us, or stuff that only we would think is funny.

You could just make something up that's still relevant and funny...that has some truth to it.

Like "Mel Gibson verbally abused three Jews and his wife". Or something like that. Similar funny extensions of the truth could be used for stupid **** like Kesha and Jersey Shore...especially if she likes those things haha.

Good luck, man.

Do you go to Auburn? Does she? Hell, get her some Auburn panties or something.:) They make them for girls, with the Redskins (Victoria's Secret).

Yes they do. The Redskins ones are very nice, my gf's got a pair :D

I banged your sister ___ times (fill it in with how many times you've drunkenly hooked up with her sister)

You guys have not been together for 1 month of Obama's term

Fox News went from Fair and Balanced to "LOL we don't give a ____" Fill in the blank with a synonym for hooking up with your GF's sister

There have been ~13 Billion sex acts NOT involving you two (or her sister)

Facebook wasn't selling your information when you first started dating.

Neither of you could legally drink when..... edit nvm

2 years and 1 day ago you WEREN'T ***** whipped....
