I had met someone on Tinder and we weren't on the same page of where we wanted this relationship to go. He was talking about forever after only two dates... and I definitely was not. Chatting on the phone with my best friend, he suggested say I decided to go with someone else. "I can't lie to him." There was a pause on the phone. "Okay, just say yes." "Say yes?" He mhm-ed. "Okay... yes." I said, confused. "Great! I'm glad you've agreed to be my girlfriend." I laughed - typical of my best friend. But I realised we had both been talking about how much we both cared for one another (being best friends for almost a decade) and just hadn't done anything about it. I had no idea I was starting a relationship with my future husband.
I think we can all feel a little lost when shopping for a guy, as they typically don’t ask for too much. All the men in my life are quite simple, so I try to just upgrade their basics! They would never want to upgrade tennis shoes, running jackets or travel kits so I like to do that for them. Whereas I’m over here picking up milk at Target staring longingly at makeup bags thinking, “Oh well I probably need a sixth makeup bag. Don’t we all?“ Here are a few upgraded basics and splurges for the dads in your life.
