Tamsen: Hey everybody, Matt and Tamsen here with askmattandtamsen.com answering your questions about love 24/7. Matt: Where is that English boy? Nigel! Nigel: Here I am. Today we have a question from Tiffany in New York, New York. Tiffany writes, “My boyfriend took me to McDonalds for my birthday this year. I think he saw that sort of a joke but I wasn’t laughing in fact I was sort of insulted. How can I prevent this from happening again?” Tamsen: Is there McDonalds in New York? Matt: I don’t know what's wrong with this guys, I mean I've never taken Thomson to McDonalds, I don’t even think we discuss McDonalds. If that would have come up in the sentence. Tamsen: I do like their French Fries I have to tell you. Matt: Yeah I know. So not to be high brought out that’s not what we’re talking about but it is somebody’s birthday. So for your birthday you know, you need to take a woman to special place—that’s not cute that’s like, that’s terrible. Tamsen: It’s not really cute actually. Okay, so that’s not cute. I think you need to let him know what you expected, it doesn’t mean it has to be a high brow restaurant or some trendy expensive place but I think it has to be respectful in terms of what you want and some people might have thought it was funny but it’s not something that you think is funny I'm assuming by now that your boyfriend you know there's— Matt: He’s not creative that’s an ordinary place McDonalds is cool on a day to day basis but not for a birthday. I mean I would be upset, I would sit down and say, “Listen, I mean if you want more shot you got a year to redeem yourself when my birthday comes along next— Tamsen: Probably some times. Matt: Yeah, right half a year. When my birthday comes around next year I better not even see the gold artist or you’re done. Tamsen: All right, this Matt and Temsen until next time.
