Wife: "its Vanletines Day tomorrow"

Me: <thinks> oh b*gger Id forgotten> "it most certainly is my dear"

Wife: "I dont want you buying me a card or flowers as its a waste of money"

Me: ?

Me: :-) furiously thinking in top gear

Me: "are you sure my dearest? I had planned to get you a large spray of flowers and take you out for a meal" ....<crosses fingers that my lie doesnt sound too tempting and she changes her mind>

Wife: "you are truely a thoughtful, caring husband but let us save the money for something else"

Me: < thinks> result !! Turbine points ahoy :-)

Aren't you the guy always saying horrible things about his wife? I guess she's not as bad as you thought?

Um, gratz, I guess.

This means that one of the following applies:

1) Your wife is cheating on you so she feels guilty about you spending money on her because of that. Go ahead and call up that divorce lawyer now, or suggest a 3some with you two and her bf/gf.
2) Your wife is telling you that so you will only get her things if you "want to" and not because you "have to". Make no mistake, you "have to" or you will pay the price for not "wanting to".
3) Your wife is an alien

as a woman... let me help you out here and translate for you, lest you find yourself in deep you-know-what tomorrow


This morning, my wife says the following

Wife: "its Vanletines Day tomorrow" HUGE clue #1. red flags and sirens should be going off! honey, i want you to do something for me, so i am reminding you a WHOLE DAY ahead of time

Me: <thinks> oh b*gger Id forgotten> "it most certainly is my dear"

Wife: "I dont want you buying me a card or flowers as its a waste of money" don't blow 200 bucks on a dozen long-stem red roses or a card. those don't last long at all. flowers wilt and cards get thrown away. get something lasting. jewelry. a stuffed animal. maybe perfume.

Me: ?

Me: :-) furiously thinking in top gear

Me: "are you sure my dearest? I had planned to get you a large spray of flowers and take you out for a meal" ....<crosses fingers that my lie doesnt sound too tempting and she changes her mind>

Wife: "you are truely a thoughtful, caring husband but let us save the money for something else" yes, buy me dinner. maybe some chocolates, too. but i'm worried about money, so don't go overboard.

Me: < thinks> result !! Turbine points ahoy :-)

trust me dude. if you don't get her SOMETHING, but you get yourself points, be prepared to be in the doghouse. "saving up for something" =/= buying TP instead

good luck tomorrow. :eek:

That's when you write a little poem in a handmade card, and leave it somewhere for her to find easily.

I was lucky enough to date a girl who truly hated Valentine's Day for its crass commercialism.

I married her, of course.

I told my boyfriend I didn't want anything either and he still sent me down a cute little stuffed animal holding a heart. So just a heads up she may not want you to waste the money, but id get her a little something just to show you care. I didn't think a little fuzzy animal would make me smile (yeah he sent it early but who cares) its the fact that he wanted to get me a Valentines gift that counted.

My first thought was:
4) The credit-card statements will be arriving shortly

Have a plan B ready... Just in case... ;)

To the OP:

If your wife says don't get me anything, then don't.

If she really means secretly get me something.... seriously ladies.... be honest or miss out. Honor her wishes: she asked for nothing, get her nothing. (This doesn't mean be a jerk, just don't buy her anything, spend the day with her instead doing free things like a walk in the park)

Guys don't read minds and we're not 7 years old anymore. If you want to play mind games learn magic. If you're an adult woman and still playing the games a 13 year old girl plays - saying one thing when you mean another - take a long look at yourself and ask if you're really acting like an adult.

To any ladies who think guys "should just know what we mean" realize that's not how we work. We tell you how we feel and what we want. If you want something, ask. Almost guaranteed a loving guy will buy you the moon. You don't ask, we -will- assume you don't want.
