His attitude is ‘you know I love you, why would you need a stupid card? Your boyfriend’s failure to get you cards and flowers is probably all about his own relationship with his emotions; it has very little if anything to do with how he feels about you. Men are born with all the tender and vulnerable emotions that women have.Although it is romantic to be in a relationship during the holiday season, relationships can often come with a lot of stressful expectations.One of these expectations, of course, is gift-giving.When I see my girlfriends receiving flowers from their guys I feel that there is obviously something wrong with me – that maybe I don’t deserve to receive these things because I am not pretty/feminine enough etc.Then I tell myself not to be silly, that I do deserve these things but that this guy just doesn’t believe in it.Use our gorgeous flowchart to help you decide on the PERFECT Christmas gift for your love!
