  1. From the male prospective, most of these are a bit on the creepy side. Messing with your partner’s phone, leaving messages on bathroom mirrors, collecting miscellaneous knickknacks; it all strikes me as the makings of a bad horror movie, however good the intentions may be. Even the messages on the lunchbox angle doesn’t really fly. Most any child is going to find that more embarrassing than anything else.

    The candy bar in the coffee cup is the most workable of the lot. Guys like their chocolate every bit as much as the ladies do. Just have to be careful that he notices the gift before he pours his coffee in. Knowing how braindead we can be before our first cup, that’s hardly a guarantee.

  2. Clingy much? Excuse me while I hang out with my “friend”Candy while you’re pre-occupied with this.
