Hey all,

Like many of us, I am puzzled and amazed by the opposite sex. The curves...the...uh...lack of ugly manliness. Women are truly a thing of beauty. Now, a hot girl that I am interested in and work with (and am currently fairly good friends with) is having her birthday on Thursday, and will be coming to the movie theatre for our staff screening of XXX. And I convinced her to come. So...I must get her a present. I simply must. But what? WHAT? Now, I am almost definately getting her a card and some manner of flowers...but what else? I need that one coup de grace of the present to put it over the top and make me look like The King of Kings. My friends are all lazy and non-committal towards this...so, I TURN TO WIENERVILLE FOR HELP! Save me, Wienerville, you're my only hope!

I'd be careful with the card and flowers...it turns you from the "nice guy friend" to "guy that obviously likes me", and that could screw up your friendship with her. I'd just give her the most genuine happy birthday wish you can, and make sure she gets in and eats for free at the theatre. Cards and flowers could seem a little overbearing to a girl you're just "fairly good friends with". The cards and flowers should come after a SUCCESSFUL first or second date. Ask her to the theatre to see a movie you know she wants to see sometime. Inviting mutual friends might help alleviate the stress, but just make sure you sit next to her, and (before or after the movie) ask her more about herself, LISTEN to what she has to say, and come with some thoughtful follow up questions. Make sure you get the digits.

And the most important piece of advice is....be patient. Don't blow your load in one night with cards and flowers. Overbearing guys don't get the chicks. Try to make little bits of progress each week...(week one: a half hour phone chat, week two: two or three nights of phone chats, week 3: date on the weekend...and so on).

This is a tough call. Since you arent her boyfriend yet, buying her a present may scare her off, seriously. The flowers, the card and the date should be good enough. If you MUST buy her something maybe a CD would be good. But dont overdo it. And be careful that you dont end up in that black hole called the friend zone.

Since she ALREADY gave me her number (upon request a while ago), I think she already knows I like her...so we're past that stage. But I think I'll go for the card & CD (or gift certificate for CDs)...and then pay for whatever food & whatnot she'd like for the screening. And make sure I sit beside her. That's the key.

Sounds like a plan...you didn't need any help after all. Also, try to avoid exchanging notes with that guy who asked for advice a while back with "the Puerto Rican" handle. This, in turn, will avoid a restraining order. Go get 'er tiger!

My fellow Wieners should feel free to openly (but politely, heh heh) veto this idea... but what about hooking her up with two free movie passes and politely and subtly suggesting that she can take someone to another movie at another time? This might blow up in your face if she decides to take someone else using said movie passes... then again, there's also the possibility that she might get the hint and want to go see another movie with you sometime.

Also, it's a little too early to be buying her lingerie, methinks... ;)

Are we also supposed to discuss technique, like the old "buy a large popcorn and cut a hole in the bottom while keeping it in your lap" trick?

I wouldn't recommend that.

Hey Freeway:

If you're going to sit next to her... cool... but you have to do this all non-chalantly.

Then again, if she jumps on you and wants to ride you like a Bronco Billy... then that goes out the window.

I just want to know why you turned to this board for help. I mean, I'm sure there are a few of us out there who aren't pathetic losers, but I'm pretty sure they're in the minority. And that minority is probably filled with pervs.

Now, how to get myself out of those groups...

The best birthday present for ANY woman can be summed up in three words:


Handsome.

Eddie.

Famous.

Well, Famous got one out of three correct.

Eddie (me) is the best present for a woman.

I'll just keep telling myself that.

2 years ago, I had a third date with a hot girl. I had to get her a good gift. So, I got her a compilation CD made of her favorite songs. Relying on my knowledge of the type of music she likes. The gift is thoughtfull and looks more difficult to assemble than it really is. Now we are happily married.

I also married the girl of my dreams and offer this advice from a successful string of dates:

Don't get her anything. It's too obvious and it immediately puts you in a pussy-whipped position. Just tell her "happy birthday." You don't want to move from "cool guy and good friend" to "drooling putz who only wants my body" too quickly. That comes later. Flowers and CDs and all that just scream "trying too hard." Just be a dude. Use the Tao of RVD.

Take her to the movies, but don't yawn and put your arm around her or anything. Don't hold her hand. Don't be overbearing. Just be yourself for God's sake, open doors for her and buy her a box of Hot Tamales or something.

DON'T BE CHEESY CLICHE MOVIE DATE GUY. Be original, friendly, and above all, manly. Don't put yourself in a submissive position by kissing her ass and bringing her flowers.

Well, at least don't figuratively kiss her ass. Literally do it. But later!

Hope this helps. Just some friendly advice from an old married dude.

Please....no yawn and arm thing. There is nothing so transparently pathetic because for this to work correctly the girl would have to be so freaking oblivious that she wouldn't notice your arm go back there. And does anybody really want to date the a chick who is completely oblivious? I think not.

Parts Unknown has it right; just be a dude and whatever RVD thing(sans the wacky tobaccky)

Time for another old married guy to chime in.

I sure am glad I don't have to date anymore!!!!!!!!

Oh.....

I guess the big question for me would be... how old is the girl you're taking to the movie?

If she was 25 or more I'd say a small boquet of fresh cut flowers (not roses, but the colorful smelly kind). Even if you're at the friend stage, she'd be thrilled to get them and roses come on too strong at times.

If she was 21 - 24 I'd say a bottle of her favorite booze (if she likes to drink) and take her dancing.

If she is younger than 21, I'd say I have no clue, but I wouldn't go to a great deal of trouble and expense if she's in the "friends" stage. Some younger girls really get a thrill out of riding "friends with crushes" for as much they are willing to shell out $$$$$$$$$$. This would leave you with bad feelings and no pie in the end.
