5 Gifts to Get the Guy You’re Talking to That Won’t Trigger His Commitment Issues and Make Him Run Away
It’s that time of year again! Now that you’ve been talking to the same boy for the entire quarter but haven’t DTR’d yet, it’s time to get him a gift that says “I’m thinking about you but not like in a relationship way because I know you’re not ready for that right now haha but maybe one day haha please don’t leave me.”
A pair of socksEveryone appreciates socks when they’re adults, and if your boy friend (NOT boyfriend!) doesn’t then leave him because he’s still emotionally 10 years old. Also, get him sports socks because if you get him dress socks it might remind him of the formal he’s probably not going to invite you to which might make him want to break things off early.
A scarfA classic gift when erring on the side of caution, a scarf neither says “I didn’t put any thought into this” nor screams “I spent hours thinking about what I want to get you because I’ve been telling my friends we’ve been dating for three months.” Bonus: you get to see the huge smile on his face when he thinks about how good he’s going to look on his date with Colleen next week!
A walletWho doesn’t love a brand new leather wallet? Don’t get him one with those little clear pockets on the inside so you’re not tempted to make him super uncomfortable by passive-aggressively joking about how you can’t wait until you can take a decent picture for him to keep in his wallet and show you off to people.
An iPhone kickstandThis is a great gift for him if he’s not local since he can not only use it while you guys watch movies for those Netflix and chill nights, but also to keep his hands free when he FaceTimes his parents for two hours while you sit in the corner of his room so they don’t accidentally catch a glimpse of you.
A Barnes and Noble Gift CardThis is a great way to get him to see that you’re potential girlfriend material because you obviously care about his intellectual development and not just getting dicked down hard every Friday and Saturday night. Don’t get him one over $25 though because you’re going to make him feel obligated to get you something bigger in return—assuming he even got you anything.
