Second date gift suggestions, or should I?

My first date with my local friend was exhilarating and totally wonderful. We went to the lakefront and had dinner. He is seven years my senior— but honestly he looks younger than me. By far the most handsome man I’ve ever dated, and the first one that wasn’t some online nonsense. We hope to go on a date mid-next week. We also had a wonderful time making out for an hour in his car after our dinner.

I genuinely am developing deep feelings for him and want to give him some kind of sentimental trinket for the hopeful start of our relationship. No, we’re not wanting to hop in bed right away— we genuinely enjoy each other’s company and complement each other so well. Any suggestions? Preferably something on Amazon or target, so I won’t have to go anywhere. Nothing silly, but some kind of pre-promise ring or bracelet. I’ve been looking for leather bracelets but nothing so far that screams ‘us’. And can’t get a single real red rose off Amazon unfortunately.

If this is real, which highly doubt, pass on a gift. If you are that similar and so romantic, you are both bottoms....so keep a double headed dildo in mind when gifts really do come up.

Enjoy the date and have no expectations about the future.

R9 So your last "relationship" was when you were 18 ? Let me guess,he was your best friend who's dick you started sucking at 15 then he went off to college and got a girlfriend.

by Anonymousreply 13November 27, 2021 1:17 AM

R6 and R7 are right. You need to adjust your expectations radically. You should not give this person any gift. And, for heaven's sake, listen to yourself. Do you know how common love at first sight is compared to how common people think it must be happening to them? You have a situation that exists right now that you can really enjoy. Just live in the moment.

And now I'm annoyed because I think you are going to take a perfectly wonderful situation and ruin it. I'd advise against whining on DL when this goes South because you are forcing your fantasy on him. You will be savaged.

I am going to take OP at their word and assume you are telling the truth.

Here’s the deal - dating in your 30s is a lot different than dating in your 20s. If he is a functional human being (none of you bitches are, btw), then he has probably been burned in the past and isn’t looking for some intense junior high school crap. He probably wants more stable and less drama. If you give him a “gift”, especially a sentimental one, it shows that you have so much drama you come with your own stage and orchestra. I’d say for date 2, offer to do an activity or go somewhere that he mentioned to you- it shows you paid attention when he talked last time.

I might’ve bit off more than I was thinking on the night I made this post. Tasteful Friends, I’ve had a hard 2021. He made me so happy; and I am extremely grateful. I am a dating novice, I don’t exactly know what to do. He’s a beautiful man with a big heart. I don’t care if he’s only a bottom, or a power bottom. I’m likely a vers top and I’m considerably hung. Our bedroom adventures will likely go well. He’s always told me I’m his type; if that makes it more sensical.

We met on an app over a year ago and we’ve constantly corresponded since that time. We did have a pause for a few months as my dad got cancer and my home got destroyed. It ain’t easy being me, and let me tell you; when the ugly responses started coming in, I lost so much trust in everything around me for days. I cried the whole night it started coming in. I was expecting an ‘aww’ type of response, not the blistering hate and bitchery I usually come on here for. I apologize for even considering that as something nice, I guess he’d like some dick more than anything.

He is very quiet, cool, and reserved. I like cats, he likes dogs. He has a dash of mystery in his personality, and that's something I love. He is an excellent kisser and embracer. This type of love was so peculiar to me on that night, but I'm like an addict looking for a fix since that night. That personal, deep affection made me happy. And basically, nothing makes me happy anymore. Hence I had such a huge desire to treat him right and asked if I should give him a gift.

[quote]R125 OP does a thread about wanting 2nd date gift suggestions then doesn't get a gift and says none was needed, thus wasting everyone's time.

I want to speak to a manager.

Our relationship ended. Sadly, you girls got it right. I have some rough days ahead of me. My heart is lost, and I can’t even cry. I’m sorry I wasn’t good enough for you, Crimm…

He doesn't deserve you.

R130, R131 — Thank you both. Just because I cared genuinely, he dumped me. His Grindr app was more important than me.

A book on a subject he’s discussed with you. A bio of fav performer or something like that. Shows you’re listening to him and will be something he enjoys.

Give him an IOU one Rim Job.

What a sham thread.

OP, nobody on DL saw this coming. Did we gurls?

If he had given me the right second date gift, I wouldn't have had to dump him.

You made out in his car for an hour - who does that?

A monogrammed tote bag from Land's End or L L Bean would make a delightful second date gift. Personal, but yet not overly intimate.

My mom was entertaining a gentleman caller that night so I really had no choice.

Sorry OP.

IF a date gave me a gift on the second date, I would consider it a huge red flag, unless it was lube and magnum condoms.
