Remember a while back when I bought my Grand Prix GT and jokingly said it was a "babe magnet"? Turns out it really is! I'm dating a real sweetheart of a lady now. This is the first real relationship for me in years. I'm now glad I waited, even if I was pretty lonely at times. Life is good! Sorry Batmobile (my V8 Fiero)... I still love ya, even if the ladies didn't.

So, how's it going, Batboy? With the love-life, I mean. Is Robyn still your trusty sidekick? We're all still tuned to the same Bat-channel to find out when it will be time to tie some cans on strings behind the Batmobile (okay the Grand Prix).
My dad's boss had the Gran Prix GTP (supercharged) he is bald and well the girls might be just loooking at the car but they turn there heads.... oh yeah my dad has it on the weekends so well i get to drive it
About the present, you could still give it to her but don't get your hopes up that it will increase your chances of getting her back. Women apparantly don't like to be pushed. Give her room, be her friend (if that's really what she wants). She'll respect you for that. Who knows, maybe one day that respect might grow into love again. If not, you'll at least end up with a good friend.

Bummer. And I thought all the bad luck was mine during the holidays. Go out and beg the Batmobile for forgiveness, she will always be there for you- especially if it is like most of my cars, it can't even leave the yard! Merry Christmas anyway

hahaha... looks like the grand prix babe magnet didn't work too well.
just kidding sorry to hear that. and what a time too. 3 days till christmas. about the present, personally, i would go ahead and give it to her, unless the breakup thing didn't go too smoothly. i don't know much advice to give you cuz i'm not much of a lady's man. only have had 1 girlfriend. we broke up after 10 months...well newayz, you have my sympathy (sp?), not that it's worth anything. hope the rest of your holiday goes better for ya.

I recently broke up with the love of my life (i thought) and it's a very difficult thing. But it wakes you up to everything else in the world. Christmas is a great time, no matter what. Just remember, life's to short to be pi$$ed off or scared or worried about lttle things.
Take it easy man Todd

"I'm moving away and I don't want a long-distance relationship." "I have 23 credit hours. I don't have time for social engagements." "My life is complicated enough. I don't need to make it more complicated." "Dude, I have three majors. I don't date anyone." "I don't want a boyfirend." (Ouch!)
I feel your pain.

Batboy, I don't really think that the new ride was the babe magnet, so much as it was you, finding a new air of confidence with the new car. YOU, my friend, are the "babe magnet"! All this positive energy was just manifesting itself in the Grand Prix. I'm really sorry that things didn't work out with your lady friend but I would definately stay friends with her. You have nothing to lose by doing so and you have plenty to gain in the process. If anything, you'll be broadening your horizons by adding a good friend and ya never know, she may have other girl friends that she may feel would be suitable for your personality. I can see that you are indeed a Gentleman, so act upon your instincts when it comes to her gift. I know you'll make the right decision! All I can say batboy is, you're on the right track, widen the social circles and most importantly, be true to WHO YOU ARE!! We all luv ya here for WHO you are, keep that confidence up and the babes will pick up that self-assuredness from a mile away! Once they get to know you, some may like you, some may "just want to be friends"(that's cool too!) and there will be some that love you, whatever way the ball plays, believe me Amigo......THEY WILL TAKE NOTE!
Thanks for all the moral support guys. The GP being a babe magnet stuff was all just a joke. I know it didn't really have anything to do with the situation. I think her saying that she just wanted to be friends was a joke too, because she won't return my calls or emails, except the one where I offered to bring her gift over to her, she wrote me back and told me she don't want me ever coming over to her house again.
What started all this was the last time I was over, the phone kept ringing. She'd go over, look at the caller ID, and then not answer it. The answering machine volume was turned down so low I couldn't hear what was being said, but I could tell it was a male voice. I finally asked about it and she flat out told me it was the other guy she was dating. When I explained I was kind of an old fashioned guy that preferred not sharing his girlfriend with other guys, she went ballistic and accused me of being a freaked out, possessive, jealous guy. Then came the just wanting to be friends speech. Of course, earlier we had been making out like crazy, so I asked if she kissed and cuddled with all her male friends too. That's when I got shown the door. Looks like it's over to me.

forget her, keep the gift, move on with your life. You have just described the conduct of about 70% of the single female population. They use what they have, to get what they want, until something beter comes along.
She does NOT deserve the gift, no no NO! If you give it to her, I will personally be mad at you Anyway how many other Christmas gifts do you think shes getting from her "other male friends" Why would she deserve one more?
