I thought about that, but I'm not sure how he'd take it. I don't know him very well, or at all, really. It's a risky move, so I don't think it would be worth it. If it comes down to that, I might have to.How could it hurt to try?
I don't get along with girls' boyfriends. Ever. They just don't trust me. Normally, it's justified, but I'm genuinely not interested in this one.

You're getting cake? For free?
I know, I shouldn't complain.
Just tell her to stop sending you things you can't eat, like that backpack and those books. I did just that to my gf, and now we just bake things together. And it's delicious.
That's a pretty good idea, actually. Thanks very much.

My brother was like that. He used to spend all his money on other people, buying them gifts and things. He wasn't discriminant about it either. Half the time people wouldn't even ask him but once people started catching wind than all his friends started expecting him to buy them shit... and when he couldn't they'd get pissed at him.
I've heard that story from her, too. People like that run into a real dilemma: The people who like the gifts come to expect them, and become high-maintenance, and the friends who don't want them, don't want them.
It's pretty dumb to try to make everyone happy. It's something you can't succeed at.
Agreed. Everyone should just try to make themselves happy, that's all. Sometimes that entails making others happy, and so that's what keeps the world turning. But when your primary source of happiness is the happiness of others, you'll require a LOT of resources to be happy.
