I would love it if my husband bought me lingerie. He has a few times, (but I had a new baby at the time, and was NOT into it at the time) but hasn't recently. He's really bad at guessing my size, because I'm petite, he thinks I wear a "Small" in everything. I don't! I have fairly big boobs and have a big butt for a petite woman, and small clothes never fit me.
One year he bought me a tool kit. But, I wanted
it. I hate going out to the workshop to borrow his tools and I wanted my own. I like to be independent around the house, if something minor needs fixing or I need to put a nail in or use pliers for something.
Once, when we first started dating he did get me a bodice ripper romance novel. He isn't a reader, and said, "You like to read, right?" Uh, yes. But, not this crap. I HATE Romance novels. I tried to read it, but it was so badly written, I quit after a few pages.
I asked him to not do that again.
I also don't like when he gets "on sale jewelry." He buys these "real gold" or silver earrings, that he says "are really expensive, but they had a sale." This is cheap jewelry, and it's ALWAYS "on sale." It's the kind of earrings that have tiny backs that get lost and the posts bend. Or are so cheap that they fall apart before I can wear them much. I'd rather he go to Clairs or Target and get me medium quality costume jewelry that won't fall apart.
He says I'm hard to buy for. Last Christmas he got me a pair of blue sweat pants.... in Small. Not only could I not wear them, and he lost the receipt, but I HATE blue. They sit, not being work, and my ass is too big to put them on. He thought that the medium "was too long." He's lanky and thin and doesn't realize that women are... shaped differently and can't squeeze into... I don't know what he was thinking.
