No, you date someone because you enjoy their company and like them ... not because you expect them to buy you gifts.

No. I don't celebrate Christmas. If the person I was dating was upset that I didn't give a gift, I would move on.

No, agree with the others you don't date someone for gifts.  In 29 years of marriage I got gifts for anniversaries probably 5 times.  I didn't marry for gifts either.  The other person may want to move on if they are so important to you.

There's been some research done that has a  little validity in proving that single guys avoid serious dating and dating at all between the Christmas season and Valentines Day because they don't know how to handle gift-giving to someone they don't know well.

On the other hand, women always want to give a man something. That would be something trivial if they just met the guy, but she wants to give him something.

I don't believe The Woman's Movement has figured out how to tackle this problem yet, . ROFL!

Not necessarily. There are too many factors to consider first.

I was dating a guy a month before Christmas..He bought me a gift but I didn't know we were exchanging gifts..I felt bad that he surprised me with a gift but made it up by paying for dinner our next date..

Yes, because it's kind of thoughtless on their part.  Even if it was a box of chocolates it would show thought and effort in getting it.
