For our first Christmas my ex gave me stuff that his mum had bought for him to give me. Yes, she chose the things for him to give to me as if he was 13. It was one of those little ornaments that you hang necklaces off of (I don't wear jewellery) with the 50p price sticker still on and a pair of girly fluffy socks that I have never worn. His mum had also bought the card for me which was a sweet girlfriend card. The whole thing was weird, childish and tacky. I on the other hand had bought him and his best friend tickets to see his favourite band and chose the card myself. One of the many reasons why I've put that family behind me
Hahah! I mentioned this in the other thread too but after 4 years of being with someone I wanted a bit of commitment. He asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said something sparkly. I have no idea where he got fairy lights from in May..!
I had been with my ex for almost a year and it was our first Christmas together, he got me a car stereo. It wasn't boxed and was clearly used stolen, it was wrapped in plastic bag with my name scribbled on the packaging with marker pen.
Not weird as such but pretty shit none the less. We split not long after when I found out he cheated on me. Lucky escape!
I was given a yoghurt on a first date by a man from Bowden in Cheshire. For those not in the know, Bowden is to Cheshire what Esher is to Surrey so not short of a bob or two. He got dumped after an hour.
Also, same ex... I spent ages picking out really thoughtful presents that I knew he would love came to about £100. He bought me the cheapest lingerie set I have ever seen! Actually i call it a set but it wasn't matching in the slightest. It cost about £15. And that was my only present.
My ex once gave me a beautiful diamond and ruby ring. Family heirloom he said. But could I please not wear it when we went to his mothers house. Transpired he'd broken into his grandparents house when they were on holiday and stolen it. He thought I'd be touched.
