I had a friend who left her long time partner. To folks on the outside he seemed loving and devoted and giving. He always remembered occasions and bought her nice things. The problem? He didn’t buy her things she wanted. Instead he bought her things that he wanted her to want.

To my friend the first seemed controlling. The latter seemed that she wasn’t important enough for him to take the time to choose something for her on his own and take the time to have it wrapped. It didn’t sweep her off her feet. It was far from the cool guys guide to romance.
