Ladies, What do you think of your boyfriend or husband buying you underwear?

I'm a guy and I have given underwear as a present to two girlfriends and one wife. Each time it did not go over very well. The first time, my girlfriend got really mad about it. The second time, my girlfriend was just so so but really was not happy. My wife, now ex-wife, did not appreciate it at all. So is it that they just considered it to be that I was really giving them something that was for me and not for them? I have had many presents from women that were really for them and not for me and I never got mad or upset and I always showed appreciation. So ladies how do you feel about it?

well, that is sweet. i would appreciate it very much. going into that length of buying (some are embarrassed to be in women's section of the store how much more choosing an female underwear!) is showing his effort to make u happy. so, for me, not a problem really!

Hey stealthy! I think you answered your own question! I know that anytime a boyfriend bought me underwear I felt exactly like you described! That it was more a present for him and not for me! I had one boyfriend that used to buy me underwear and sexy lingerie and I would get so angry every time and he would still keep buying me more even after I threw the boxes at him and told him straight out that I didn't want that because it wasn't a gift for me it was a gift for him! You would think that after buying those gifts for 2 girlfriends and your wife and not getting a good response that you too would get the message! Buy something that she would like!

Maybe you should have stopped after the first time, you know, learn from the mistake haha. I suppose giving underwear as a gift is not a bad thing, if it is just a random gift, not the main gift for their birthday or Christmas. If you get them underwear for a holiday, and underwear only, you may be seen as selfish and even cheap. If you really really want to get them underwear, at least get them something else that you absolutely know they would appreciate, and do it tastefully. There are times when things are sexy, and other times when they are just perverted or unattractive. You just have to know what type of person you are dating too, all women have different preferences and toleration for that kind of stuff. Lingerie might be a step up from underwear though, but even that alone as a gift is not really sufficient for a holiday, anniversary, or any other special occasion... On a random day out of the year they are more appreciated.
