They say no good deed goes unpunished, and that goes doubly for romantic gestures.
In concept, elaborately surprising a loved one is a sweet motion plucked straight out of a romantic movie. But in reality, not everyone loves surprises, and a partner's response to the cover-up can overshadow the eventual reveal.
TIFU by trying to surprise my wife for her birthday and almost getting divorced
I'll admit I haven't been the most attentive husband lately. My wife has told me I need to make more of an effort in our relationship or we would have problems. I've tried really hard to invest in our relationship ever since finding out my wife is not feeling as happy as she should be.
This f*ck up happened last week. My wife's birthday was coming up. I decided to go big. My wife absolutely loves surprises so I decided to surprise her with a romantic night and lots of flowers and presents. She had to go to work in the morning of her birthday and I had the day off. A lot of time to plan everything out.
