Birthday on Sunday, should my boyfriend be buying me a sexy new outfit for the bedroom?

irishlove irishlove
I went out out today to buy a new outfit from frederick's for my upcoming birthday weekend. I did the same thing a few months ago for my boyfriend's birthday. I'm just curious what everyone else thinks, should the woman be buying her lingerie herself or should her man give her some extra money for special occasions (such as her birthday) to buy something to make her feel sexy?

No person "should" do anything. It would be nice of him to buy you lingerie if you like that, but I think that you'd need to tell your partner that you would like it if he did. Some people are afraid to do such things because some individuals do not like to have lingerie or clothing purchased for them.

I don't have anything against the woman buying lingerie on her birthday... If that's supposed to be your birthday present, it would be a bit odd for you to use your money. But if he's getting something else instead, I don't see the problem.

I buy my own lingerie all the time...

Depends on the dynamic of the relationship! No one "should" do anything...In my relationships it would be very insulting if my guys gave me money to buy lingerie on my birthday but that is our dynamic. I buy lingerie for myself and they are ok with that, both would prefer to skip the lingerie and just get nekkid anyhow...

I probably shouldn't have used "should." I like dressing up and I buy lingerie just because I feel like it. It makes me feel sexy. When I posted this I didn't mean that my boyfriend going out & picking something for me and bringing it home for me to wear. I'm curious is other feel it appropriate for the man to maybe offer to take his girlfriend out and get her something sexy for her birthday or just giving her some extra cash for her to pick something out and surprise him with something he'll just want to rip off!

I don't expect my partner (I don't date men.) to do anything for me that she is disinclined to do. If she wants to buy me roses, she should buy me roses. If she wants to buy me high heels, she should buy me heels. If she doesn't have the inclination to buy me anything, that's what she ought to get.


See, the thing is... I don't want my partner to do anything for me because she thinks there'll be a repercussion for her not doing it: that's manipulation. I want her to do it because it makes her happy to do so, not because she thinks I'll be unhappy if she doesn't.

It depends. My man has (from time to time) asked me if I would be willing to wear a certain, specific costume. If I'm game, he'll get it for me. But if I'm out and see something pretty that catches my eye, I'll buy it to wear for him.

I think this is one of the dangers of putting too much emphasis on certain days, like birthdays or holidays. Then there's worry about who should buy what for whom. However, if you feel like you would like him to get you something sexy for your birthday, just tell him. If he's anything like my man he's just waiting for you to tell him what you like/want so he can do it for you! And that way there's no wondering or worrying. Otherwise, buy what you want when you want, and rock it!

This is pretty much exactly how I feel with my husband, that he should do it because it makes him happy to do so, not because he think's I'll be unhappy if he doesn't. Sometimes I think you and I share a brain, DS.

I'm not the type of person who would date someone who's into lingerie. LOL. I have nice underwear but I buy it myself, and not for special occasions. just for daily wearing, for myself. I find the whole concept very unfamiliar.

That's more for him unless it is one you really want.

I love lingerie so if you're like me and it's something you want then it is nice, but otherwise if you're doing it for him then you shouldn't do that it's your birthday. Is that what you want to be buying for your birthday?

I think lingerie is a great gift, but like others have said it really depends on your specific relationship and what you both like and want.

I think people have said this already, but it is up to you and your boyfriend to figure out together.

If there's something specific he wants to see you in, I think he should treat you. Or you could do the thing I've offered my partner: here's $$, now go to this website and pick out things you'd like to see me wear. But he's so lazy sometimes!

Usually, if my boyfriend really wants me to wear something, he'll buy it for me. If it's something I want, I'll buy it.

I would think HE would give for your B-day. I mean if you're buying the lingerie because it makes you feel nice then you're giving yourself a b-day gift, which don't get me wrong, is perfectly fine, but if in order for it to be from him, I'd expect him to give.
