    But I didn't know I had to make it clear it was an actual - why else would I have asked it? :confused:
    Silly, throwaway conversation. I think she really meant 'nothing in particular' and thought that that would result in you buying her a surprise- all she wanted was a surprise present, didn't matter what.

    I think it's probably best to take it as a lesson for the future- and maybe she'll learn that sometime in life you get taken at your word!

    Exactly. Considerably above the normal or average in quality. I support people who actually think and not just follow social conventions even if they disagree with them. It is a very well-known fact that you are expected to buy a gift to your melancholic and cryptic girlfriend for her birthday, but when she says no, she should get nothing according to her wish. It is not rocket science, is it?
    But I really quite liked her, and still don't understand how I effed it up. :confused:

    You were expected to know that she meant something like: "Buy me a ruddy expensive gift or I will not talk to you anymore. Treat me like a princess."

    I'm a woman, I'm that simple.

    Whenever I've asked people questions in the past, they've actually meant what they said - how was I to know this was different?

    Whenever a girl says "nothing", she doesn't actually mean it. Considering you haven't been together that long, you could have just got her something really small like flowers, which is still better than nothing.

    Wait a minute, are you a lesbian?

    (Some people are stubborn so I add that I do not find this fact unpleasant in any way.)

    I don't really have a definition for it. I wouldn't say I'm a lesbian, but on this occasion I was attracted to a woman.

    But how was I supposed to know that when she said nothing, she didn't actually mean nothing.

    Oh, I am a giddy goat. My definition of the word "girlfriend" automatically made me think that you were a male in an intimate relationship with a female. So she was your female friend, is that correct? If yes, accept my apologies, please and note that you are even more great because you are a rational female.

    It was a romantic relationship, although never really got very intimate - I'm asexual and she was new to dating, we were going slowly.

    All right then, now it is clear to me. I advise you to consult some other female friends next time. It helps because they might interpret the words and subtle signals of your female partner more accurately and provide you with the "translated version". It is just the way it is – love is considerably irrational and so is behaviour of some persons. Good luck to you.

    Thanks - I think I'll need it. Hopefully the next person I'm attracted to will be more straight talking.
