From a female blog reader:
I know this is going to make me sound so shallow and a horrible person. But I typically like to date a man with his own money and his own stuff because I have my own money and my own things going for me. However, I am from America I have been dating this guys for not too long. We both agreed to getting each other Christmas gifts. I asked him what he wanted he said a gaming system (ie Xbox or PlayStation) with a video game. I told him that a bit much, I then proceeded to say if I get you that do I get what I want? He said yes, what I wanted was a purse which was about the same price of the gaming system.The total of everything with the warranty on the gaming system was about 700 dollars usd. When I gave it to him he looked grateful. However he didn’t get me anything it will soon be 2 weeks since Christmas. Do I ask him where my gift is or just remain silent in hopes he figures it out. Also he is talking about traveling back to Nigeria. Am I being used? I could have just used that money to buy my own gift. What do I do help. Do I give hints about the gift or do I just forget it and forget him.
