But if he is cheap, broke or has ego problems with giving a woman anything (this probably isn't the only time of year he winces over buying you something), then don't expect him to come through and do expect him to find an excuse to break up.Typically, this is an issue that comes up between young people who are dating, and should not be a factor in your relationship after both of you have reached real maturity. Well, that is kind of a cop-out because women usually appreciate the thought — as opposed to the price — of the gift (not all women, but most do). Also, have you ever given him anything, and if so, was he comfortable receiving it?

During the holidays, the most awkward position to be put in, other than being invited to meet your man’s family for the first time, would be the option of NOT being invited to meet his family.

Although, stories of his Aunt Lulu never sparked an interest in you before, the arrival of the holidays have you crossing your fingers and praying to shake the woman’s hand and drink her eggnog.

First of all, it usually isn't a problem for "real" men, because they are not worried about whether to buy you a gift.

If you have been dating for a while — and you have that kind of relationship — then he will want to get you something.

For most people, most of the time, dating is a lot of fun—especially if you’re dating someone new that you really like.

But it can also be stressful, what with wondering if this new person is your soul mate or just great in bed.

A guy that you don’t even care to be in your future, you side-eye him if you don’t see your name on his Christmas list and hasn’t yet invited you to Christmas dinner.

However, there’s no need to get your Christmas knickers in a twist because you’re just him, right? A gift or an invitation doesn’t make your relationship status any stronger. Personally, if a guy is inviting me to meet the family, I better be on the road to engagement and some “bling.” Other than that, you’re honestly just a girl he’s bringing home to the family (this year.) Hob-knobbing with the grandparents and the parents doesn’t bring you any closer to the “presidential status” of a relationship you’ve been vying for.

However, if you find that he still seems to get uneasy with your relationship during the holidays, you need to discuss it. Is it that he feels it's a statement of commitment to give you a gift? You can head off the whole "Gift-Giving Break-Up" (GGBU) thing by paying attention to how he has behaved at other times of the year. On the other side of the coin, if he has ever given you something small or inexpensive and it came from his heart, but you showed no appreciation for it, that may be an indicator that you are about to be a victim of the GGBU.

If he is not ready for commitment, he may feel that way.

Are you worried that if you buy too much of a gift, your dating partner might get spooked, and if you buy too small of a gift, he or she might feel slighted?
