Certain things feel overrated until you actually experience it. In this week’s agony aunt; the question of giving and receiving gifts takes the center stage.
Let’s check this mail out:
Dear Agony Aunt,
I love my boyfriend very much, but I think he is stingy. We’ve been together for almost four months and I haven’t seen shishi from his hand.
Don’t even say I’m being entitled, cos I’m not. He’s my boyfriend, and sometimes I just want him to buy me stuff or something.
Besides, I read that a stingy boyfriend will inevitably be a stingy husband; and me I cannot marry stingy person o.
A very controversial issue, but here’s how I responded:
Maybe all you need is to communicate with him. Men are usually clueless about things like this most of the time. Besides, a man will spend money on someone he loves.
There’s no doubt about that.
Or maybe the relationship is too early for him to invest his money in. In the meantime, why don’t you buy him stuff?
I’m sure he will reciprocate.
You don’t have to wait for him.
