BJ'S BLOG 12/11/12 "Tacky Gift"
Yesterday on the show, we read an email from a Rock-A-Holic named Kevin who isn’t sure whether to give his wife a gift he’s been saving a long time for or not.
Kevin’s been married to his wife for 8 years and throughout their whole marriage they’ve joked about her being flat chested. She’s thought about getting implants for a while but they didn’t have the money at the time. When they did talk about it, she was always hesitant because she was afraid of appearing phony and/or shallow.
About a year ago, Kevin got a promotion and has been putting away money in savings for a raining day or to finally give her the implants for Christmas.
Now that Christmas is approaching, Kevin isn’t sure if giving his wife breast implants for Christmas would be tacky and not a good idea.
This is a tough problem Kevin is going though because some women can be really challenging when it comes to direct communication. Some women have fantasies they dream about constantly, but that doesn’t necessarily they want it to come true. As a guy, if I have a fantasy, I will do anything in my power to make it a reality; most men are really black in white in the way we think.
All Kevin needs to remember is to respect whatever his wife chooses to do, to tell her that he loves her and that he just wants to provide her with the things she wants and if this is one of those things, he’s there to support her.
