A MAN who has only been with his girlfriend since January has admitted he thinks it is still too early to exchange Christmas gifts.
Advertising executive Steven Malley believes as he and Joanna Kramer have not even been together for a full year, buying presents for each other would be premature and could ruin their relationship.
He continued: “I don’t want to come across as too eager. We’re still early doors.
“Yes, we’ve met each other’s parents, been on a couple of holidays together and we’re talking about getting a flat, but I don’t think we’re really there with presents.
“Would I mind spaffing a hundred quid on a box of soaps that smell of bergamot, whatever the f**k that’s even meant to be, if we were in a serious place? Of course not. I’d pay it happily, and I’m sure she’d buy me presents of equal or greater value.
“But now? The time’s not right. And none of my previous girlfriends have ever minded not getting gifts, I know because they told me so while they were breaking up with me for unrelated reasons.”
Kramer said: “I don’t want to go over the top, so I’ve just got him a new jacket, a mini-break to Edinburgh and his favourite aftershave.”
