Girlfriend Card...help

Postby On the DL » Tue Oct 18, 2005 3:50 pm

I have this girlfriend right. This monday we will be our four month. I didn't think I should give her a present, but thought a simple card would be nice. I could slip it into her bag w.o her knowing.

What should I make it say? Something that will make me sound really good!

Here is what I got...

Name,
There past four months have been amazing. You are such a great person. I know we arnt where we want to be right now but we will get there. You are so unique and genuine and I am enthused that I be able to date you.

Patrick


any suggestions?

I don't know, I think that anniversaries for thing like "four months" are a little antiquated.

Here's my suggestion... ditch the sappy card. Take her to a nice dinner. And I mean nice! Like, $30/plate minimum.

Don't even get her anything, just take her out somewhere you've never been before. Show her that you're in it for the lang haul and you're willing to do quite a bit to impress her. A card isn't going to do it. So, either nice dinner, or nothing at all.

If you don't get laid that night, let me know... I'll have a word with her.

Or this one:

Pet Name,
The past four months have been amazing. You've supported me through my fantasy baseball team through the high times and the low times. You convinced me to take Tomlinson even though I wanted to take Manning. Please let me treat you to a lemonade as we watch MNF. You're the best.

Patrick
(Your fantasy baseball team name)


Seriously though, at the end instead of "enthused that I am able to date you" put glad that I get to spend time with you. Just sounds better. I'll have my wife read this over and let you know if she'd go for it. ;-D

I would cut this. Try "I feel lucky that we met and got together."

Seriously man, enthused that I be able to date you? Ouch!

How about,

Dear Honey Bunny,

I like your toes. They do not smell. No, I mean, they smell nice. Like your hair. Which I like to sniff when you're not paying attention. I would like to get to second base with you. I am not sure where second base is either, but I'm quite sure that I have been caught stealing a number of times. I wish I were more like Chone Figgins. Your catcher has a good arm. And your pitcher has a nice slide step. Anyway, i want you to know how magical the past four months have been. I have been counting the days. Four months is like, almost 120 days. That's awesome. You're awesome. Not like Vin Deisel is awesome, but in a more feminine way. I like the way you chew gum. I am enthused.

Yours truly, forever and ever, and ever, and maybe even a few more evers,

Definitly don't give her a card. You are just going to get stressed out trying to figure out what to say, for something that is either going to be thrown away or stuffed in a draw somewhere. I have never given my wife a card. I bought one for our wedding but forgot it at work the day before.

this is what you do either take her out somewhere nice, or as I prefer send her flowers at work. It will make her the center of attention for that day, and she will think it so sweet.

I also figured out a great cheap gift idea, which I feel like sharing. There is a web site called Custom Calendars. And what you do is send in pictures and a list of special dates and they will create a calendar highlighting those dates. The base price is only 30 bucks, with some additional add ons. basically for like 50 bucks you will looks like the greatest guy in the world. I am getting my wife that christmas. I just have to find a way to steal pictures from the house withour her getting suspicious.

for some people, sappy little things like notes and cards really work.
i am ordinarily not one of those grammar nazis (make a fair number of mistakes myself) but i figure if you want to impress someone it might be nice to communicate it properly.

so here are some changes for you:


Name,
The past four months have been amazing. You are such a great person. I know we arn't where we want to be right now but we will get there. You are so unique and genuine and i am glad that I get to spend time with you. I feel lucky that we met and are now together.

Patrick

suggestions--try to incorporate something more personal. recall a previous date, conversation, or joke that you shared. you dont really need our help for this part. just be yourself, unless you are some kind of axe murdering weirdo.
