Girlfriends present!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Look, I'm a poor guy but I need to get my priorities right. I either splash out on my girlfriend or I keep most of my money for PC upgrades. HELP!

Also if you have any present suggestions that would be great.

50/50. Maybe 60% for the GF. Or think of it like this - Girlfriend or computer? :/

 

If you already have a working computer you're alright

To be honest just putting some thought into something cheap can mean more than something that costs a fortune,  just get her some roses, a few candles, and make her a nice dinner.

I am poor myself. I'll never choose PC Upgrades over my Gf's happiness. However, my gf and I have been together 1 year and 9 months and are pretty serious about each others.

 

If you both just started up, then upgrade that PC and buy her a rose:P If not, you'd regret those new PC parts :P

 

Try to find a balance between a gift to her and a small upgrade to your PC.

 

EDIT:

 

You can also gift her something hand-made ? Something creative and meaningful ?

 

For my GF's birthday/ Valentine maybe not sure. I'm making her an App that has buttons to "tell her I love her in 3 different languages" and some other stuff like that :P..

1. Go buy stuff for your girl, like roses, a card, a nice dinner or something (Or do something she likes) 

2. Be lucky you have a girlfriend, i do not.  :(


Im so close to Top 100 in 3v3 :(

I just saw another post by you, judging by your age and the probability that your GF is about your age, she shouldn't require you to spend copious amounts of money on her. Otherwise you have the wrong girl :P 
But as a general tip I have a lot more fond memories of past GF's than I have of myself sitting in the dark blue light of my monitor.

Find a shoplifter or a fence that can get you some good gear for the missus (helps if there a druggie, it means you will get your gear cheaper) then you can spend the big bucks on pc gear! (Unless your fence can get that too, but if that is the case I'm gonna need his number too) xD

You don't need to buy her an expensive present. Cook dinner for her, or something like that.

^ this. Unless she's pretty gifts-oriented, odds are she'll care more about the thought you put into something than the dollar amount.
