Hi folks second time I've posted on here so I know I'm in for it ! Fiancé bought me this beauty for Mother's Day. I don't care it cost £8 and I don't care it's a Day late and from Asda I truly don't. I care that it's a nightie. We have been together 9 year. I don't wear nighties. He bought me one last year for balentine last year I made nice noises but made excuse after excuse not to wear it. This year I said while I appreciated the effort and that the pattern was pretty I still don't wear nighties ! He's currently throwing a wobbly saying I'm ungrateful 😕. AIBU ? For all those that get nothing I'm usually in your group and so i do feel honoured I got something this year but I'm never gonna wear or use it and I tried to be nice but he won't take the hint ! Should I suck it up apologise and wear the bloody thing or not ?!

Are you his mother? If not why did he buy you a present?

Should say valentines stupid fat fingers 😳

Hahahaha thank you amberlily I knew it ! I'm the mother of his children. 2 very young girls. How am I supposed to get anything from them unless I buy it myself ?! I bought his mother's and my own and they both got gifts they like.

I think maybe your fiance would like to see you in a pretty sexy nighty.

Why did you buy his mother a Mother's Day gift? Did she get two, or did you buy on his behalf?

ScarletForYa Mon 27-Mar-17 22:04:45

Holy cow, that's bad.

I wouldn't spare his feelings, the state of it!

His mothers present is not the issue here!

If you don't want to wear a nightie don't wear one. I hate this kind of gift, more about the givers gratification than the recipient

Are you his mum? Its mothers day... So you join the rest of us and get a hand made card from dc, made at school or nursey/childminder...or wait till you do. Ds is 8 and this is probably the third card Ive received. Why would his father by me something?! I'm not his mother. Weird.

I didn't even get a card from DS (almost 4)

See her in a pretty sexy nighty? Fuck me if she wore that and rubbed her legs together she would set the bed on fire.

No just no

Op you have my sympathies

MissGoggins Mon 27-Mar-17 22:11:07

My point is that if op is happy to by on her dp behalf just buy something she likes and say it is from him. That's what she did to his mum.

Guiltypleasures I almost spat out my wine its been a shit day coz my kids were being jerks

Get your own back on Father's Day & buy something horrific & see if he gets the message 😂

Railgunner1 Mon 27-Mar-17 22:14:50

Maybe that was meant for his mother?

isupposeitsverynice Mon 27-Mar-17 22:15:10

It's not weird for a man to take his child to buy a card and/or gift for Mother's Day! Both my ex and my husband do and have done this for as long as I have been mother to their children.

If he wants her to wear a nightie for a shag so badly he can bring it up separately to Mother's Day like a normal human being (or get over himself since it's been 9 years and OP clearly isn't game).

Fauxgina Mon 27-Mar-17 22:16:53

Just to be clear is that all you got for Mother's Day? And it was a day late?

Guiltypleasures001 Mon 27-Mar-17 22:18:09

Give it to him on Father's Day, seeing as he likes it so much

PacificDogwod Mon 27-Mar-17 22:19:40

It was a present to himself.
And yes, it is a bit odd for a partner to buy you anything for Mothers' Day IMO.

I'd take it back, get a refund and buy a box of chocolates instead. Which I would eat all by myself grin

Not everyone is good at thinking of presents.

Present buying is a skill, it's not a sign of love.

Why not agree that for your next birthday/anniversary/Christmas etc you'll give him a few suggestions and he can pick something from the list?

Too many of my friends see these kind of occasions as a kind of extended test for their OHs and I hate it.

Go back to Asda to get a refund.

And spend your £8 on wine, cheese and olives.

EweAreHere Mon 27-Mar-17 22:26:02

9 years and he doesn't know how you like to sleep?

I'd be disappointed and sad, too, OP. He's out of line for being stroppy about it.

ArriettyClock1 Mon 27-Mar-17 22:26:34

Wow - hideous! My mum wears things like that.

Make him take it back - your reaction last year was not obvious enough.

Anycupcakes Mon 27-Mar-17 22:29:24

Probably worth explaining to him that it's not to your taste.

And that he is welcome to wear it when you are not.
