agreed, start taking advantage of her offerings early on... there will come a time when stops offering.

If a girl is still in school, ie broke, then that does change things... a bit anyways... give her an opportunity to pay by not always going out for a 60 dollar steak. Keep it simple.

Where the hell are you taking her for dinners that USUALLY range from $60-120???? I've been with my girl for 5 years and I can probably count the number of times we've had dinners in that price range on two hands. I'd say our dinners average at right around $25 and she's more of a cheapskate than I am. Pretty sure my money goes further now that I'm with her than when I was single.

I'm not quoting everything in this thread even though I agree with all of it, but this will blow up in your face sooner rather than later and if it doesn't, well then kudos to you since you got lucky.

I had an ex get mad at me for not paying once and then blaming me that I "spoiled her too much" and she came to expect it (her words not mine). That was the end of that one and I haven't made the same mistake since. Take the advice on this forum for what it's worth to you, but the collective hive mind of E46OT has a lot of experience on just about everything.

I'm in Annapolis, there's a lot of nice (expensive) restaurants around here. My favorite being Cafe' Mezzanote' Plus its more reason for her to dress up....which is worth the money hahaha.

Ill have you all know, this thread inspired me last night. Made steak, bacon stuffed potatoes (yes i can count to potato) and some asparagus. Candle lit, roses, the whole nine yards. I asked her "You will always appreciate, not expect the things i do for you. Correct?"

She had a heart warming response of "When we get old and brittle, i will return the favor ten fold"

This girl is the goodness i tell you. She doesn't make much money, pays for her belongings herself. So for the time being, i am happy to treat.

I make more but she has more to her name do to family. It's about a 60/40 split when it comes to picking up the tab or treating the other to something nice. She is the 60. I am the 40.

No complaints.

dude you are something else. You are so over the top it's not even funny. You are the exact type of guy that gets his heart shattered because he is too nice. You need a little more edge to you. You are a dime a dozen and she will eventually get bored of it. You then go ahead and ask her if she will appreciate this? That screamed insecurity. Something tells me this is your first crack a really pretty girl and all you want to do is show her off and show her how much you care about her. Both are dangerous this soon into a relationship. I hope I'm wrong and I know damn well that there are plenty of relationships that workout like this one but the odds are against you. I'm not trying to scare you, I'm just letting you know I've been there with plenty of girls. My game at your age was very similar. Treat a girl like gold and she'll be yours forever. lol not even close.
