    I've been dating this gal for a year, and am planning a date to celebrate that fact. I think I'll take her to some swan boats at a local lake I can rent for a half hour and then we'll go to a nearby vegan cafe to eat. Lately, she's been complaining of pain in her back from boxing, and I give her a massage, but I'm no expert, so I was thinking about paying for her to go in for a massage session with a professional, and that would give me time to go pick up some food to make it a picnic instead. But that might be kind of weird, spa things are something I could see myself giving her if we were married and like, 50... Any girls here been given a professional massage from their boyfriends and thought it was sweet?

    Out of the blue it would be a tad weird, but if she has back pains it just seems like you listened to her and care :)

    It depends on the personality of the girl, but I've gifted a day at the spa, and it seemed really well received.

    It is a good gift. Most women love stuff like that

    It wouldn't be a day at the spa, it'd be a 30 minute back and neck deep tissue massage....

    I've got two options,
    Spa Type Place
    Medical Type Place

    Spa type place might be more romantic, but it'd be a 25 minute neck and shoulder massage.

    Medical type place might do a better job at the massage, it'd be a 30 minute deep tissue sports massage.

    I don't think she will mind. I, on the other hand, hate having my hair done or nails done. If I had a boyfriend and he got me a certificate for a massage I really would not enjoy it. So as long as your girlfriend is not like me I think you'll be fine.

    Buy her a iPhone 3GS.

    (you asked for relationship advice on a Apple forum, so that's the answer you got :p)

    I think a spa day would be a little better, but that's just my personal preference.

    Most women like that kind of stuff. If she doesn't like it you can give it to me. :D

    If she's anything like my wife then yes, it's a good idea :).

    I don't see why she won't like it. I love going to spas and I'm a guy. :D

    I'd vote for the "spa type place" over the "medical type place" though. :)
