Unimportant Gifts

Guys, if you buy your girlfriend some wholesale fashion jewelry, there are two ways to go about it.

First: You can lie about it being fake. This implies that you don't care enough about your girlfriend to buy her something real (even though buying her jewelry as a gift at all implies no real thought). Plus, you run the risk of her finding out and kicking your head off.

The second, more Honest route would sound something like this: "Sweets, I bought you some jewelry--don't get too excited, it's fake. Since this jewelry is just a symbol of our love I didn't feel the need to waste money on it, since you still have the tangible symbol (wink). Plus just by buying you jewelry I decided to use the symbol that all the other guys in the world use too, so buying you jewelry isn't exactly a special act anyway. Where do you want to go to dinner?"

Maybe you wouldn't say the part about everyone else using the same symbol when they buy wholesale fashion jewelry, but that is what you are doing. Buying your lady a gift that all other guys get for all other girls is not special or meaningful. It just shows that you don't know enough about your loved one to get them something that is a specific to them.
