    With Valentine's Day approaching, I'm curious to know what sort of gifts, experiences, or surprises are appropriate for a guy you just started dating? Any suggestions?

    If you just started dating then maybe you should cook dinner for him (as long as you have enough culinary skill not to poison him) or make something together.
    Find an activity you both like and do that.
    Take a class in something you both talked about learning.


    Traditional Valentine's Day is a day devoted to validating straight women's relationships or make them neurotic. They use the day to compare how their significant others compare to past relationships and those of their friends.

    He's a man and a new relationship. You don't need to buy him flowers, jewelry, or stuffed animals that sing.

    Something small that he'd feel guilty buying for himself. Inexpensive peripheral sports gear?

    Well valentine's day cards are often exchanged by people newly dating, so I'd just give him a humorous card, and then go grab a burger and a beer.

    One I saw that was funny - retro card. Had rows of 50s girls and among them one pic of a guy. The card said, 'If you are gay..."

    ..and on the inside it says

    "You noticed the guy's pic first! Now without looking, how many pics of girls were there?"

    edit - found it, lol!

    a heart-shaped frame with your picture in it (icon_lol.gif totally kidding, unless you want to be perceived as psychotic)

    just tickets to a game/show whatever he enjoys- it's casual yet meaningful

    Mega hairy muscle hugs and some candy hearts, ought to do it, for starters.

    If your dude is into leather, an arm band or a jock, would warm his heart.

    After that, you're on your own. WOOF

    I would just take him out for a nice supper. Probably want to decide on a place and make reservations in case it gets busy.

    Ermine's "cook him dinner" suggestion is excellent (provided, of course, that you can cook). Major BF points there.

    My husband had a lengthy chorus rehearsal that he couldn't get out of on our first Valentine's together. So I cooked, then packaged up the food and brought it to the rehearsal space. We had a pleasant but quick candlelit dinner together; once the rehearsal started, I cleaned up and went home.

    It wasn't difficult to cook him dinner - I spent more time and effort cleaning grit out of the leeks than I did doing anything else - but it was much more personal and intimate than a dinner out or take-out, and cheaper to boot.
