My girlfriend was/is an attention whore, I've gotten her to settle down quite a bit since we first started dating about 8 months ago. I've learned from previous relationships and never gave her one bit of attention, and over time she came begging for me etc. We were off and on for about 8 months, but in the past 2-3 weeks we've been pretty close, I'm pretty confident that she isn't seeking outside attention anymore because she knows I will drop her like a bad habit. This past week she told me she loved me for the first time bla bla bla Anyways, she had always hinted at me getting her these earrings for the longest time, since I didn't want to be like every other guy she's had and put her on a pedestal and treat her like a princess I would always blow her off. Well the earrings are only $100 and now that I think about it I've never really boughten her anything. Either I've been caught up in playing this "bad boy I don't give a shit about you role", or something like that. Should I break and buy her the earrings? the cost was never an issue, it was the principal and showing her that I'm not like every other guy and can drop her and go get someone else and I don't need to buy my women etc., I'm just not sure when to drop the image and give in a little. Any advice is appreciated thanks.
