Your question was: Is that Hilary Swank on the Match.com commercial?.
I don't really think you're over-analyzing this. He got you a present for your birthday a month before so naturally you think he's going to get you something for Christmas. I think it's logical to think that he'd get you something for Christmas. The thing I'm thinking of is... you gave him a present which he didn't open until later when you weren't around, I wonder why he didn't open it in front of you? Then you seen him the next day when he could have raced out and got you something..... anything....
Yet, instead, you got a bunch of apologies.
I think you're just confused because of the birthday present thing then no Christmas present. Now, what if you didn't get him anything and he got you something for Christmas, what would you have done? Valentines day is coming up. I don't think I'd get him anything except maybe a funny card, IF you want to. If he gets you flowers, cool, but I wouldn't get him anything. It's so hard to buy for a guy anyway..
I have been divorce for 7 years now and I remember how confusing that time was while I was going through it. I think I'd just let this go for now but I can understand your confusion. I'd let it go because when you or anyone is in the middle of a divorce, whether you're dating (online dating with Match.com) someone or not, you're on a roller coaster ride of your very own. Be kind to yourself and I'd just keep calm about dating (online dating with Match.com) that guy, keep things cool and you'll be able to see what's right in front of you when the time comes and you're ready...
I dont understand why he wouldnt buy you a Christmas present. That seems odd to me..
It also seems odd that he saw you the next day and didnt bring anything but some lame excuse about "not getting it". My thoughts would have been, "save it for your mommy"..
The way a guy handles things is either a huge turn on or a huge turn off for me. Who wants a guy you'll have to always mop up after for the rest of your life?..
That strikes me as so weird that he went on and on about how bad he felt when he could have just gotten you a gift and given it to you that night. It doesn't really make sense to me..
If he's otherwise considerate and thoughtful, however, I'd probably give him a pass on this one thing but keep it in the back of your mind as you're evaluating him going forward as a possible relationship (thru Match.com) partner..
And as for whether you're "wasting your time" or notI would have had a conversation about what each of you is looking for in a relationship (thru Match.com) (in a general sense, not specifically with each other) much sooner than 6 months into it so I would have an idea of whether we were on the same page. In other words, if I'm looking for a serious LTR, is the other person open to that, or not? If you haven't had such a conversation, better late than never..
Well six months isn't terrible long for some people, so he might not have thought it okay to buy a gift for the big holiday. You said yourself that you are taking things slow and the birthday gift was a small gift. Try not to over analyse this one. Watch to see if he respond well for the next little while and then make your decision to continue the relationship (thru Match.com) or not. .
Sounds like the wine was talking a little for him. I'd chalk up the continuing to go on about not getting a gift on the wine. He obviously feels bad. I bet he won't make the same mistake again..
I had a hard time with if I should get my boyfriend and his family (he's a single Dad) gifts. We had only been seeing each other for a short time. .
