So, I have been talking withy crush recently and she said that she would like said vinyl for Christmas. I am thinking about buying an original copy, which is around £90, instead of a new one that costs around £20. Is it a good idea?

If you have the money, go for it. Are you close with her?

Well, we text/snap 4/5 times a week for a total of around 4-5 hours a week.

I personally think that’s too much money to be spent on a crush.

Well, tbh the title is a bit misleading, we talked about long-term perspectives and stuff, we may possibly get official if things to go well in the next 2-3 months. Plus, she said she would like to be with someone who is a 'gift giver'.

First :they want to be with someone who is a “gift-giver” - either that’s code for they’re a gold digger or what they mean is people who buy thoughtful presents, not throw money and hope it sticks.

But it’s your money-if you have it to spend.
Like I said, I think that’s too much for someone you’re not in a relationship with or similar.

Well, I can see your point of view. Thanks for your opinion.

Is that really a good thing, though? Somebody who wants a ‘gift giver’- are you sure they aren’t a gold digger? Obviously I don’t know either of you personally, of course I am probably wrong!

I’d say start with the cheaper option and see how it goes. If you get closer to each other, then maybe start increasing your price limit? Up to you, though ^^

Id find it really weird for someone I barely knew to spend $90 on me for Christmas..
The 'gift giver' comment just sounds like shes using you.

To be fair, I have to admit that I had never saw it in this way. Having said that, I am not 100% sure I would actually like to find this out.

Thanks for your opinion. I may actually go for an another vinyl, perhaps in the £50 bracket.

Can I ask roughly how old you two are?

Okay- it just gives a bit of perspective too. Spending £50-£100 when you’re 15/16 is an entirely different ballgame to spending that when your say 30/40

As university students and not going out I personally wouldn’t go above £50 tops.
I don’t know if it was a specific vinyl she was talking about or if she was meaning for you to get it for her-but if it was then that price bracket is where you should stay roughly -the £20 you first mentioned.

Fair enough. But I think it’s worth consideration. If things did become serious between you two it’s a good question to start asking- you will seriously regret the relationship if she’s in love with your money rather than you as a person.

But yeah, I think the £50 bracket is slightly better than the £90. Hope it goes well with you and the crush :laugh:
