    ..... it could have gone either way though - she could have thought you were being tight and come valentines day she will be wondering who you blagged the flowers off. :o

    Still, i dont spose it will do any harm to start as you mean to go on i spose.:confused:

    ...but Martin's GF has read The Money Diet and she's already bagged discounts etc so they may compete against one another with regards money saving, so... :think:

    Most extravagant Valentine's gift I ever received was a Tissot watch from Kass-Jentgen Jewellers in Luxembourg. Lovely gift, pretty overwhelmed. Valentines Day really gets me but I'm just soft hearted. I remember a couple who were so great together, they had been married for years and they acted towards one another like it was the first day they'd ever met. It's really nice to see.

    MrJudi bought me an engagement ring on our first valentines day. Engaged on February, married by March. I did have the sense to wait 12 months though before i got pregnant with our first child.:o

    ...I didn't quite get that far, but what the heck, I'm happy. :-)

    Impressing the women while out shopping.... carrying their shopping is good, but that depends on the woman. If she is fiercely independent type then she'll probably want to carry her own, if she is the soft hearted, gentle type then carry her bags, she'll love you for it. If she loves to shop then just make sure you have the number of a good chiropractor. ;)

  • Martin, don't take this the wrong way, because as a gay man I consider it a compliment, but I was a bit taken aback to read that you even have a girlfriend. I guess you can't tell these days!

    Wishing the two of you all the best.
