Ex­pe­ri­ence teaches wis­dom

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - TWOCENTS -

I don’t think any­thing is wrong with a man who learns how to send gifts to his beloved from his pre­vi­ous dates. Isn’t it a bonus from the ex­pe­ri­ence of dat­ing? ( Is there a per­fect gift? Fe­bru­ary 22).

My first boyfriend had sev­eral girl­friends be­fore me. I bet that is the rea­son he al­ways knew what kind of gifts made me happy. I never blamed him for uti­liz­ing his pre­vi­ous dat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Also, I don’t think a girl should judge a gift she re­ceives from her boyfriend. It is his in­ten­tion, not the gift that mat­ters. Many girls would think that send­ing flow­ers is kind of clichéd and shows that the man is not cre­ative.

But frankly speak­ing, I was re­ally moved when I re­ceived a rose bou­quet from my now hus­band on our sec­ond date af­ter meet­ing.

He is a shy per­son and con­fessed to me that it was the first time he was giv­ing flow­ers to a girl he loves be­cause he would of­ten feel bash­ful when send­ing flow­ers.

In my opin­ion, it is a big step for­ward for a man who is not ro­man­tic. Even if you don’t like the gift he gives, you should show your ap­pre­ci­a­tion and en­cour­age him. Why be picky with the man you like? Han Ying, by e-mail
