yea that's pretty efffed up I'm sure at one time you felt strongly for her and even if you don't anymore it's the gesture that counts. have some dignity and respect. (of course assuming her actions have been less than questionable)

haha that's fucked up.
if it's cuz you don't have the funds then yes fyl you broke ass bum. but even so, just plan something nice for her. then you score and she's happy and all's well.

#42 - there's no indication here that the GF is demanding expensive gifts. The FML isn't about materialism, it's that the OP thinks so little of the relationship that he'd break up with her to not have to buy a gift.

Oh and while we're at it, piss off anyone that posts about selfish, demanding girlfriends for this one. It's Christmas FFS. Buying your partner a Christmas present is hardly the height of materialism. Unless you're living in a rolled-up newspaper in the middle of the road, STFU with your whining about capitalism, and get back to surfing the net on your new iPhone.

what's the big deal if u don't want to give her a present tell her" I can't/won't get you anything for Xmas so plz don't get me anything to" duh haha I do that with my bf mainly cuz I don't have the money but he wouldn't break up with ke if he was debating on gettin me a gift or not maybe u just don't love your gf enough or something? other than that if you do break up with her it would be a Xmas present to her! u should be honest bout the gift thing just tell you u won't get her anything u don't have to break up with her u dbtard

#75 there is also no indication that he thinks so little of the relationship otherwise he wouldn't have put it on fml because he is feeling bad about not being able to buy her a gift hence the fml, hence the weight that is put on everyone by the world to buy a gift for their gf so they can have a stable relationship IMO I would just tell what everyone else has stated just say that we don't get anything for each other I didn't mention capitalism or materialism simply stating that everyone saying that he was broke and he should dump her for her sake can fuck off he's obviously thinks she deserves more but can't give it to her hence the fml... I rest my case

istead of buying a huge present put together a basket of a few of her favorite things ( small things ) or make something really special and if she's a great gf then she'll appriciate that.

Today, I found out that my boyfriend wants to dump me because he's to cheap to buy me a Christmas present. FML

Seriously OP? Did you expect pity from us?

All I know is that breaking up is a ridiculous measure to save money. He can explain everything to his gf if he's in some 'situation'.
Oh, and nobody here knows the details, except for the OP. So we have to assume.

Yeah, it would be unreasonable to assume that this is the only criteria he's considering for this decsion. The way I interpret it is that things weren't going well as it was and OP feels a little sheepish that he realized there's an added financial benefit to dumping her now as opposed to later.

What the fuck... Just make her something. Any half decent girl would love a homemade thing... Whatever that may be. Or just tell her you're broke and agree to not get each other anything.
