So, I've been talking with a guy for about a month now. We've gone out a couple of times, first 'date' was at a coffee shop, we visited until they were closing. Went met again for lunch and had a great time. Neither of us are big phone talkers, but we communicate throughout the day via text and IM, and have every day. We are going out for dinner and drinks tomorrow before we go our separate ways for the holidays. I was thinking of buying a small gift for him, but don't know if it is appropriate. I am deliberately taking things slow; my last relationship we were nearly to the 'I love you' and spending most nights together by one month. That kind of freaked me out and I regretfully and painfully ended it. It is so much more fun to take things slow, so much more intrigue. We haven't even kissed yet, but he sends me at least five texts a day, every day. I don't think that is normal 'let's just be friends' behavior (which is fine, we have so much in common, and that is the ultimate goal), but more would be nice. Is it out of line to get a small gift for him (book or dvd, along those lines), or is that too much for a guy that you are hitting it off with yet sill haven't had any more affection with than a warm handshake? We are both grad students who have been very busy with school, has kept us from doing more until the semester has ended.
