So I have my birthday coming up on Sunday and the guy I've been dating for 5 months now told me that he can't decide what to get me for my birthday. Last weekend he surprised me with out-of-town vacation to hotel & spa which was so amazing, since he isn't that type of guy who buys gifts and he has also told me that he hasn't get a gift for anyone for like 2 years. So I told him that the last weekend vacation was so good that I don't really expect anything from him for my birthday, because he paid for all of it + our dinner there cost almost 100€ and although I asked him to split it, he insisted that he'll pay. Which was also unusual, because we go to restaurants a lot and he has never offered to pay for me before. Why all this sudden change? I mean it's all good that he's like that but I'm just wondering... Anyways, then he told me that he still wants to get me something and I told him that if he really wants to buy me something so much, then the gift should involve me & him doing smth together, 'cause I prefer being together with the loved ones more on my birthday than getting gifts. He just said OK. Was it okay from me to answer to his question like this? I don't want him to think that I'm after his money because the last weekend's vacay really cost a lot for him and now I was basically referring that I would like something like this again for my birthday?

Perfectly okay and a good answer at that us guys say OK all the time don't over think it I would imagine he is happy to get you whatever you want and if that means doing something together instead of a gift then that is just fine. We just want to make you girls happy and money means nothing to us when compared to making our girls smile.0

You weren't specific when it came to how much money he should spend, only that you want to do something together. That could be anything, from renting a movie together, to going on a similar spa + dinner thing. So it all depends on how he interpreted the answer and what he decides to do with it. If he spent a lot last weekend, it's probably likely that he won't spend as much again, and will probably go for something a bit more low-key. If you were a gold digger, you would have been more specific about what you want and what it should cost, so I doubt that he thinks you're only after his money (unless he's a dumbass). Also taking into consideration how this was basically the first time he treated you to something, I preeetty much doubt he thinks much of it, money-wise. You worry too much.0
