Jeff--I have no idea what timberlake song you refer.. why do you even know who he is?



I know who he is because someone sent me this link once:

You could modify it for birthdays.

My best idea so far is to write her a song. Do you play any instruments?

The single greatest success I ever had at melting a girl's heart was when I picked up the guitar out of the back seat of the car and sang a song that I had written for her.

It was cool. And we were parked at some kind playground just behind a gothic church, and the moonlight was just over the spire.

Great moment of my life.

Later I taught her how to smoke a pipe. Filled with cherry tobacco. We walked in the garden around the church and I taught her how to gently puff to keep the thing lit.

That night when I was trying to go to sleep, all I could smell was a mix of cherry pipe tobacco and Giorgio.

What a memory!

I have to agree. Not only is it good general advice, it fits your profile perfectly. Go forth and be sweet!

Give her a photo of me in a speedo. She'll be so happy to be with you that she'll want nothing else.

You can get her one rose, 1 piece of chocolate (some expensive stores will sell one piece for 2 dollars, and a poem/photo of you both added to the list. She doesn't need a bouquet of roses or an entire box of chocolates to feel like you took the time and effort for her birthday. Taking the time to wrap the gift and even a hand made card will make it special.

A dollar store is a great place to find all sorts of trinkets, like picture frames, soaps,small teddy bear, ect. Each one individually wrapped and placed in a bigger box will also show you put a lot of thought and effort in the gift.

Having dated you since Aug she probably is aware of your limited funds and will know your gift comes from the heart and the price is not important.

Good luck and hurry up as you have to get this done before tomorrow! RUN!!

Don't get her pregnant as the average parent spends 250,000 to raise a child from birth to adulthood ...so in the end it'll cost you more. Smile If you go that route - let Josh step in for you as he suggested.

Nice point, Chrystal. A beautiful presentation can show a lot of care and attention.

It went well. she was happy with what she got, I gave her (among other things) the "coupon book". It worked, she still likes me.

Met her parents, it also went well. She mentioned that I did some "tricks", so they forced me. I screwed up triumph, I used older cards and messed up the strip-out-I was nervous under their gaze... But got them with red hot mama/chicago opener.


Thanks again for all the comments!!!!
