    No you're not a horrible person.

    This Christmas I spent £100 on my girlfriend. We've been together a substantial amount of time, over 2 years, and as a debt ridden, poor student, it's the most I could afford.

    On her part, she spent roughly £10 on me.

    We are from similar financial backgrounds and are slightly supported by family, but her personal finances are sailing in calm black seas, while mine dress in tarty red and go flirting with the bank manager every month.

    I know it's the thought that counts, I know money doesn't mean much, love conquers all, but I can't help feeling just a slightest bit peeved that I scrapped my pennies off the floor to make her Christmas, yet she (seriously) spent as much on her cat's birthday last month than she has on me.

    I feel like I might be being taken for a ride, in which I merrily sit astride Santa's sleigh throwing out gifts, and in return **** Dastardly pulls up alongside for Muttley to crap in my sack.

    Immoral as it may be, I've decided to run a small experiment. Her birthday arrives in a couple of weeks, and unlike last year where she received a new necklace and matching ear rings, this year I'm getting her a single box of chocs and maybe some stationary, just to gauge her reaction, and admittedly, savour a small bitter sweet nugget flavoured with the mildest revenge. Mostly to see what happens though.

    Am I a horrible person?
    I am not going to judge you as a person, as I don't know you. Were I to be in your shoes, after the episode with the cat who apparently received more than you, I would start wondering where you are in her list of priorities. Said that, revenge may only trigger an escalation that I think neither of you really wants. I think that some honest talking about how you both truly feel about each other would do better than anything else.

    £100 is a lot, what kind of poor student are you exactly?

    I personally wouldn't spend this much money on my bf. My parents have been married for a long time and they don't spend this kind of money on each other cause there is no need.

    This experiment of yours is a good idea in general but you have raised her expectations so be well aware of that.

    Looking forward to results. I suggest skipping the stationary. Get her a 5 pound bunch of flowers and a card. Nothing else.

    It shouldn't really matter how much the gifts cost as long as they're well intentioned. :dontknow:

    OP you are such a ****, you won't even spend anything on your girlfriend? What the hell is wrong with you, you are so shallow, she doesn't need to spend anything on you, you are the man, she is the girl, girls deserve more than men.

    /extreme sarcasm

    In the big picture, gifts are a conspiracy made up by the retail industry to boost sales at christmas.

    In a long relationship get them something useful not something sparkly. Shallow *****es think all that glitters is gold.

    Although to be fair you sub-consciously thought you needed to keep paying rent to your GF to keep her around by spending this much on her, to impress her or whatever, so it could well be that she thinks exactly in an un-shallow fashion, spending only £10 as she believes gifts don't matter, whereas you spending 10x as much as her, means you are the shallow one, and think expensive gifts make a relationship.

    In theory, you are annoyed she spent less on you, and maybe she was doing the experiment on you, in which case, you failed her experiment

    If he actually went and checked the price of it then he really is the shallow one.

    Women <3 money.

    It's not a golddigger thing, it's evolutionary. Money, gifts etc shows that you can provide for her, which is sexy.

    Of course you do get some golddiggers, but generosity is sexy.

    An experiment that will result in her finishing with you but an experiment that should be done all the same. You are right, moral and just in your cause. Tally ho brother.
    If she leaves him for that, then she is loooow!

    That's the best post I've read all day! Made me look at the situation in a totally different way.

    Take note, OP.
