RE: Gifting

Classic LetterLet’s wrap on December 29, 1997…

Dear Breakup Girl,

What should I get my boyfriend for Christmas? We have been only going out for a month but we are serious.

— Michelle

Dear Michelle,

Well, missy, if you’ve been going out for only a month, then Breakup Girl knows this guy about as well as you do. But your letter does highlight a common problem: meeting someone just before a major gift-giving holiday. There’s also the less common (but perhaps more serious) problem of meeting someone just before a non-gift-giving holiday, and giving him something anyway — planting a tree in his honor on Arbor Day, for example.

Listen up, you guys: at the early stage, your presents should not be commanding.

DO: pick up a little something sweet, warm, or fuzzy — chocolate, mittens, dice — that says “Hey there, I think you’re kinda sweet, warm, and fuzzy.”

DON’T regale him with anything time-consuming, grand, or intimidating — a ten-course dinner, a romantic weekend at a B&B, a mortgage — that says “Sit here, stay here, sign here.” If you do, chances are he won’t be around when it is time to get something more serious.

Love,
Breakup Girl

  1. About a year or so ago, I was heading to school and as I headed out the door, I saw a coyote looking at me(originally I thought it was a wolf but later found out it was a coyote) and then I blacked out and fell to the ground. My mother found me and took me to the hospital and they took my blood pressure, blood sugar level and other blood tests to see if anything was wrong, there wasn¡¯t, I still have 0 clues as to why this happened to me. Coyotes usually never come around our house, and suddenly, I see this one look at me and I black out? I¡¯m clueless, anyone have any insight as to why this happened to me?
