Ok, here is situation:
I am meeting a girl and a friend (a guy in his early 40’s with family and kids, whom I met online and we have been really close friends for past two year and hang out often together) in couple of days whom I met online. Since we all know eachother from online, we thought we’d get together over a cup of coffee. This is the first time both of us (my buddy and I) are meeting her, although he’s spoken with her few times over the phone.
I have spoken to the girl over the phone once, but we know each other from online for past couple of months. We have been flirting online, but don’t have anything solid going on. However, there is a potential.
Usually when I meet a girl over the net for a cup of coffee, I get her something nice just as a good social gesture. Nothing of romantic nature, but something that usually people like. Usually I get a music CD of the kind of the music she’s into. But the problem is, I don’t know what kinda music this particular girl likes (somehow never came up) and it’s a bit too late to try finding it out now. It won’t be subtle.
My questions are:
1- Do you think it’s a bad idea to get her something, like a CD? I don’t want to come off too overbearing but at the same time wanna leave a good impression.
2- If CD is ok then what do you think would make a good album? I don’t want too popular type of music that she might already have a CD of, but at the same time want to get something that’s good and listenable.
3- Are there any other small, neutral gifts that would fit the occasion? I’d appreciate the suggestions.
Thanks in advance.
