Sex & the Single Woman: Can’t Buy Me Love

Yesterday I was talking to one of my roommates and she mentioned a friend of hers who has started casually seeing a guy. The two are not official by any means, yet he has taken to buying her very lavish gifts. This, in turn, has made her very uncomfortable.

Is there a time when it is too soon to spring gifts on a girl? We all like a little attention and knowing that he cares, but I definitely think there is a limit, especially if a girl cannot reciprocate.

I think if a guy really wants to impress a girl, he can show her he cares by simply spending time with her or just letting her know he is there for her. Yes, gifts are nice, but in the end I want a guy who shows love through emotion, not just his credit card statement.
