ON GIVING âœI go a little overboard rather than risk giving something small. A past girlfriend suggested we not make a big deal with Christmas gifts, so I agreed and got her something really small.
And then she got me a microphone I’d always wanted. Not cool. Now I think really hard about her passions and how I can support them in some way. You can’t go wrong with that!â
ON GETTING âœI’m like a kidâ”if there is something in front of me that I get to rip open, I’m happy. But I get a little self-conscious about showing a reaction right in front of a girl.
I’m really laid-back, so I worry that she’ll think I’m not excited about my gift. But I always am because it really is the thought that counts.â
