Photo please. It'll help me help you.
2003-10-10 12:32:27 PM  
I would if I could, but don't have one online. kinda looks like a smaller, younger, non-pregnant version of Catherine Zeta-Jones
2003-10-10 12:34:11 PM  
oh, yeah...she must be from Canada, I wouldn't her.
2003-10-10 12:35:40 PM  
How about a ring with a small diamond?
2003-10-10 12:36:03 PM  
You should probably ask Colomboy, I'll bet he knows.
2003-10-10 12:36:10 PM  
nope, not canadian, half mexican half white. Got best from both worlds.
2003-10-10 12:39:08 PM  
edible undies, 2 pairs

Since she's a Libra, I suggest a bunch of bath chit...salts and soap and bubble bath and stuff. Maybe some candles too...if you're lucky she'll invite you in the tub with her. Get her some flowers too, I know it's cliche but chicks really dig 'em. They can't help it, it's hardwired into their brains.
2003-10-10 12:48:34 PM  
Start with NOT taking her to Rainbow-Lodge. It's over priced, the food is mediocre and there's nothing romantic about dining in a room full of blue hairs surrounded by stuffed hunting trophies. Go to somewhere like Backstreet Cafe instead.

Flowers are good- have them sent to her at work though.
2003-10-10 12:52:12 PM  
Mandrax. I just fapped to the picture of you in the red Mini. Thanks.
2003-10-10 12:56:43 PM  
Mandrax. Thanks. I haven't been to the rainbow-lodge me-self, but I've heard awesome things. Will drive by backstreet later on to see how it's like.
2003-10-10 1:02:53 PM  
Flowers are nice, but they only last a week or so. Ditto with wine or chocolates: you drink/eat them, and they're gone. (Plus there's the "Are you trying to make me fat?" factor.) Jewelry's always good; you can get a nice necklace or pair of earrings with semiprecious stones for under $100. (Blue topaz and amethyst are very attractive and remarkably inexpensive, at least if the jeweler's not trying to rip you off.) Freshwater pearls are also not-too-expensive but look luxurious. A small, decorative jewelry or keepsake box is nice too - maybe something with carved or inlaid wood, or with a silk or velvet covering. (Extra credit if there's jewelry in it!)

No chance that the Life Size Blow-Up Antonio Banderas doll is a good idea, is there?
2003-10-10 1:23:48 PM  
How 'bout a nice ice cream sandwich?
2003-10-10 1:34:50 PM  
vibrator with the little bunny ears, chicks dig it
2003-10-10 1:48:24 PM  
Cook a nice dinner. The effort counts more than the money spent, believe me.
2003-10-10 1:51:07 PM  
Get her a really nice bathrobe so everytime she puts it on she thinks of you!

/I'm such a girl.
2003-10-10 2:09:13 PM  
A large column Candle with a unique plate holder (or a cast iron (hanging type) candle lamp). Scented/unscented your choice, but the candlelight along with the phalicness of the column candle will get her subconscious working...if it is the right color/scent/size to match the room she would put it in, it would last for weeks, if not months, and remind her of you everytime she lit it...oh, and put it in one of those fancy gift bags with alot of tissue paper and a (truly) thoughtful price under 30 bucks...

This is a great (one time) gift without being jewelry.

I think I am growing a V, so I will stop now...

Multiple Orgasms.

cheap, romatic, and very unforgettable.
2003-10-10 2:31:47 PM

Green Discharge.

that's every time. you're not helping Mister.
2003-10-10 2:50:13 PM  
Dump her cause she's cheatin' on you.
2003-10-10 2:52:42 PM  
I find anything from Pier 1 makes them happy.
2003-10-10 3:22:17 PM  
colomboy, I am not a MAN man... see the thread about Farker's friend who is losing facial hair.

but I still stand behind multiple orgasms.
2003-10-10 3:27:00 PM  
whoops, sorry guy... I mean ma'am... i thought only d00ds said that, I was wrong...
2003-10-10 4:05:47 PM  
Hm, depends what kind of gal she is. My all-time favorite present from my husband was a cordless drill.
2003-10-10 4:22:28 PM  
I think you both deserve new boyfriends.
2003-10-10 5:06:01 PM  
How about a nice evening at Marfreless? Donw behind the River Oaks theater if I remember. Great place, low lights pretty romantic...

Or you could just take her to the Richmond Arms for opening night of World Cup Rugby!

Wife and I had dinner down at Denis...Westheimer at Kirkwood. Food was great and reasonable.

/really miising Houston right now...
2003-10-10 5:16:39 PM  
Denis? do you mean denny's? hopefully not....
2003-10-10 5:21:50 PM  
2003-10-10 5:27:47 PM  
And while I'm at it, I used to love Pinos (?) on Westheimer and Hilcroft for Italian. Knew the owners daughter and never had a bad meal there.

/REALLY missing Houston
2003-10-10 5:35:00 PM  
hey, what do y'all know about La Colombe D'or?
2003-10-10 7:23:39 PM  
Tee-shirt that says "I'm with stupid"
2003-10-10 8:00:12 PM  
A completely "no-strings attached" full body massage by yourself. It's free and she'll appreciate it.
2003-10-10 9:28:10 PM  
Leave an extra C-note on your "girlfriend's" dresser when you're done.
2003-10-10 10:02:36 PM  
Give her the gift of confidence in her boyfriend's independent decisions.

no, wait, that won't work.

/gimme a break, this is FARK, dammit!

TotalFark membership.

A gigolo.

And lucky for you, this week my rates are $99.99. Of course, she must present the coupon before the business is conducted.

2003-10-11 1:13:05 AM  
Well, what does she *like*?
2003-10-11 1:15:20 AM  
Marfreless is great... the "Blue Door Bar" Its under new management now and they've renovated it. No more nasty couches, they've got all new nice leather ones and new higher prices!

still a great little lounge to take a date!
2003-10-11 1:15:37 AM  
Something about the same price as what she spent for you on your Birthday.
2003-10-11 1:15:48 AM  
Drive to Port Aransas and go to the Crazy Cajun. Nothing says romance like whackin' seafood with a mallet.
2003-10-11 1:16:46 AM  
A completely "no-strings attached" full body massage by yourself.

I think she'll be pissed if he gets a massage by himself. But you're right; if it's "no strings attached/happy ending" he should probably go by himself. But she'll probably still be pissed.

"kinda looks like a smaller, younger, non-pregnant version of Catherine Zeta-Jones"
ahhhhh I've got the perfect thing.

pick up some really nice scented candlesget some really REALLY nice scented body oil

draw her a nice warm bath and place candles around the tubcarry her to the tub, lay her back and wash her entire body...DON'T LET HER DO A DAMN THING!

when you're done washing, pick her up to her feet and dry her off with a new very soft cotton towel, again not letting her do a thing!

carry her to the bedroom and lay her down on the bed (must have a few more candles lit around the room, and window open for a nice gentle breeze to come through)

spread the oil around on her rubbing and soothing her muscles, EVERYWHERE!

walk to the open window and yell HEY VEGASJ !! SHE'S READY !!!

2003-10-11 1:18:14 AM  
Show her you really care, buy her a one way ticket out of H-town.
2003-10-11 1:18:17 AM  
A weedeater, a live chicken and some peach preserves.
2003-10-11 1:18:42 AM  
Get her a cheap tattoo. Check here for suggestions.
