He broke your heart the same way you would've broken his wallet :p
If he wouldn't even talk to you to arrange something (like 'let's not celebrate Valentine's Day and let me get you our anniversarypresent another time') he wasn't worth it anyway.
You can still celebrate Valentine's Day without getting your partner expensive jewelry or something. My boyfriend and I are just going to make dinner together since we don't have a lot of money. The guy could have just written a poem or picked some flowers for goodness' sake.
Or to tell her that he could not afford to spend that much money. Breaking up only shows what a coward he is. I am in OP's case as my b-day is a few days before Valentine's day. As many have said, there is no need to spend a fortune on each occasion. My fiancé and I are gonna go out for my b-day and and we will cook a meal together for Valentine's day. Expensive does not mean make the occasion special.
Some times that doesn't work though. I've had a girl break up for me just because I couldn't give her present on valentines day. I even told her that it may have to wait. I told her I would give it to her anyways and when I did she tried to get back together with me. Some people just want their presents.
That's all lot of dates to remember . And presents to buy. But you don 't have to be a ass and break it off because you can't.
It's his fault for choosing the worst time to ask you out in the first place, and he probably didn't like you that much anyways!!
To 26) while you're correct that 6 is a bit of an asshole, you sir, are even worse. An arrogant asshole. If the bf asked op out 1 year ago, valentines day and her b-day would have been on the same days. 6's insensitive point still stands, you're just a dumbass. Use some common sense please.
If you want to keep a girlfriend, you have to give up your life savings, tough choice.
That's total bull, what kind of girls have you been with? Girls want to feel beautiful, have fun & laugh. You don't have to spend a lot all the time. Sometimes it's nice to do free things like hike & take pictures, free museum exhibits, visit UC campuses, go to the park, stay home & watch movies, or go to friends houses etc.
Was there a glowing look of greed and anticipation on op's face? Perhaps an accompanying list of gift demands? So many questions, so few answers.
