Is she going to buy me something?
She didn’t last year but we’ve seen more of each other during the last few months and become closer.
Suppose she buys me something and I don’t have anything for her?
I’ll buy a gift for her.
But suppose she doesn’t buy me anything and I give her a present?
She’ll be embarrassed and I’ll feel awkward.
Which is worse?
If I buy for her and she doesn’t buy for me?
Or the other way around?
It’ll be awkward whatever happens.
I thought this was supposed to be a joyous time of year?
