Dear Alma,
I'm a 29-years-old female, never married. My wonderful guy and I recently celebrated the first anniversary of our first date. He sent me flowers, and I gave him a ticket to see one of his favorite comedians. I bought only one ticket because my cousin is getting married that same weekend, so I knew I wouldn’t be going. Now he's miffed and says he probably won’t go alone. I tried to do something special, but I think maybe it wasn’t such a great idea. He knows I don’t make much money, which is why I didn't spring for a second ticket. Perhaps I simply don’t understand men. What do you think he was feeling? Signed, "Hoping to keep a good thing going."

Girl, you have absolutely no clue. You wanna know what he thinks? I’m sure he’s wondering why you bought him only one ticket. Period

You took the cheap route, and you know you did. Even though you couldn’t go, you still should have bought him two tickets so that he could have taken someone else. Tickets, especially when given as a gift, should be purchased in pairs. Giving him one ticket was like buying your man a single glove.

Despite the error, I see no reason why you can’t keep your good thing going. You simply have to make it up to him.

What do you think, Qcity readers? How can this woman make things right with her boo?
