My SO rarely emails me now, ever since we moved in together oh so long ago. The other day, he sends me this email asking if I would like this service as an anniversary gift.
Note: It will be our 4 year anniversary in a couple weeks.
I laughed when I opened it (he was in the same room), and said I might be into it, but not 100% sure. My guy’s a character, and loves to make me laugh, so I’m sure that’s what it was about… however, although he’s always been super affectionate, and makes me homemade cards on special days (which I absolutely adore, obviously!), when it comes to actually picking out a physical gift for me, its usually things you would get your sister lol. Practical gifts, books, etc. It’s always usually at the last minute as well, which kinda bugs me at times but I still appreciate the thought for sure. And I love that he puts a personal touch on the cards.
I told him I wouldn’t mind some small jewelery for our anniversary this year, he didn’t really say anything. It was a few days after I said that, the email came. I’ve decided to be sassy and surprise him with a reply to his email, saying I’d prefer he be the one to tell me I’m awesome every day, and plus a little romance for our anniversary would be a nice touch as well. 😉
What do you guys think of that wording? Should I not reply at all? I just want to nicely/subtley let him know that this anniversary is a big deal to me, I want some effort put in on both our sides. Sometimes a girl just wants some romance, you know? That service (if he was serious) doesn’t really scream romance to me. If he WAS serious, it makes me feel like just a friend, actually.
Especially since I’ve been wanting to get engaged and what not, and I know that isn’t happening, I’d love if he could show some romance. Surprise me, plan something. Part of me wondered if he was just goofing around and/or trying to throw me off in some way so he could surprise me with something else. I’m trying not to get my hopes up though, so far I’m doing well!
Am I being unreasonable? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Oh and I still have no clue what to get him hahaha he keeps telling me I don’t have to get him anything. I’m like mister, please. Obviously I will, I never let an occasion go by like that.
