I’m not really one to take to traditional romantic gestures…
I do give gifts. Or at least have started too, but only if its something that jumps out as something they would want.
It was funny this last girl I was talking too came over once. I had set aside some books for her earlier on. It was one of the first things she did, just walk over and pick them up and browse through them on her own.
A lot of the girls I’ve talked too don’t like to feel obligated. The empowerment of women. They like to take care of themselves and don’t seem to embrace total caterance. They don’t want to be bought, they want to make the choice.
… I do have a strong romantic inclination, but that only really manifests as complimentary statements until the girl commits. At that point flowers and dinners and all that. I understand it well, but I also disdain tradition. Diamond rings, valentines day, all those things… Just cyclical consumption ■■■■■■■■ that is put on us.
The most romantic things I have ever done occurred years ago. After the SZ set in I was unable to date anyone. Too lost and confused and disconnected from normal life. Finally crossing that barrier. All the same I don’t remember the specifics of the relationships before that.
That’s my formal report on the matter.
@alien99 That sounds like a very sweet thing to do.
