Traditional relationship or modern relationship?
Grandmas didn’t play mind games
For a start, don’t expect him to read your mind, if there is anything men are hopeless at, it’s knowing what a woman is thinking. To make life easier for both of you, tell him exactly what you want for your birthday for instance, where you want it from and what brand and colour you desire. Not exactly romantic but it takes away the misery of feeling that he doesn’t really love you because he doesn’t know your preferences. Besides, when he sees the thrill on your face when you open your present, his mind chooses to forget that you had actually requested it. Result! Both parties are happy and the juice maker stays un-ordered from Ikea’s catalogue.
