Should I allow my GF to buy me a XBOX One?

#1DVentPosted 2/6/2014 6:40:16 PM
So my girlfriend is pretty cool, we've been together for about 3 years and she wants to buy me and XBOX One tomorrow. I am on the fence about this because I have a severe problem with depression and PTSD and feel I am undeserving of that type of gift from someone.

I am looking forward to getting one to play Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3 and Forza but beyond that I just can't justify it to myself. For her, simply she said it would make her happy but I would rather have her spend the money on herself.

Because of my problems I make no income at this time, I hope to change that down the road but it is a real battle for me because I also have IBS and Chronic Pain. Keep moving forward though in hopes I get better.

I figured I would ask here, what would you do?

Well you said you would rather her spend the money on herself. She is. It makes her happy.

Believe me I handed that card in a long time ago. My situation is complicated and a complete life screw job for me. I guess the question should be how do I talk her out of it because I have told her not to and I think she will regardless.

That is her biggest selling point to me, it will make her happy. Depression sucks.

Dude, if you are asking GFAQs how you should communicate with your girl, the relationship is already doomed.
