#597 meeting her has been a bit like falling in love…
Friday 4th December, 2009
I am in a new relationship. We have only been out on a few occasions, but meeting her has been a bit like falling in love. So what would be an appropriate Christmas gift? – one that says ‘we are in a relationship’ and you mean more to me than a Facebook poke.
(From JensenG via email – with thanks for the mince pie recipe too).
In some circles Christmas present gifting can signify so much more and, indeed, less than the gifter intended. Generally when we are children we really could not give one hoot for the actual present, but rather its packaging. I have always been partial to a big box.
With this in mind, you had best promote your package in the finest way possible. Then as you pass her your token of love, hold eye contact for longer than the most fleeting of glances and lean in for a sweet lingering kiss. That way she won’t give a hoot for the trappings of what you give, but rather the heart-felt sentiment of the moment. If you can find a snow machine all the better.
I would shy away from any ‘update’ or announcement on Facebook. This speaks of being a little too desperate for a relationship and thus you will appear as over-sentimental and clingy.
In short keep the package big, the wrapping neat and any sentiment sincere.
