I've been with my boyfriend for 6 months now. we've been long distance for 3 of the months. [yes, it's crazy but I truely love him]. I sent him a box of goodies for valentines day & a present for his birthday. He's never sent me anything... not for anniversaries or anything. 5 months back he got me a bracelet for my birthday & then a scrapbook & stuff for christmas. I don't want to sound snobby or anything... I would love a ring from a 25 cent machine... just something to show he's thinking about me. Any ideas on how to do it wihout sounding rude? thanks!
Additional info, added Monday April 30 2007, 3:13 pm: He is not poor.
correction: HE'S LOADED. He works and never pays for anything, he's getting a full ride for college... i don't care if its a $1 ring or 35 cent post card... just anythingggg to show he thinks of me. no, i'm not just into money or anything....

I think you should talk to your boyfriend. Tell him how much you love and appreciate him, but that you love receiving little trinkets to let you know he's thinking of you. Make sure you tell him that it doesn't have to be expensive, just that you'd love to get little packages from him. You can even say, "I'll make you a deal. I'll send you a little package every time you send me one. That way we always know that we're thinking about each other."

(then giggle)" Just do something like that and I'm sure he'll get the hint. If not just tell him you don't think he's showing you he's still into you and that it's hard because of the distance.
