    I'm not sure how to feel about this. I mean, nothing against it, of course, but I already had a PayPal Mastercard debit card, so this is moot to me? I can see how this could be strategically employed, though...

    It all comes from the same account and my friends, she has ways of finding out, and will bring it up at a time when you least expect it to happen. I just heard about the lens I thought she knew nothing about. It is best just to tell her you did it, and it can't be returned, and then slink out to the couch for a couple of days leaving for work before she gets up and staying at work but calling home until she has gone to bed.

    Once she finds out there are little romantic things you can do to endear yourself again. Why can't guys ever figure out romantic gestures can do a lot more than slinking off? It's a given she will find out. Plan for it. Remember the best defense is a good offense.

    Clearly you haven't met my wife. Can never out plan her, and any attempts at a good offence are received with a quiet removal of all my ammunition and loss of any armour (not neccessarily in that order). Best give in first, besides the cat only glares for the first half an hour (on the couch).

    If you have kids, or animals make arrangements without her knowing for them to be taken care of for a weekend. If you have the budget, rent a limo. If she works arrange with her boss to surprise her at work and whisk her away for a nice little weekend someplace romantic. It is the surprise factor that does it. Just tell her about the lens or whatever in the AM before you do this. It is part of the budget over all when you purchase a new lens. Flowers, candy and such just don't cut it. It is the all out romance. If she works, aain do somethin like have a good friend play the part of a high brow waiter and you set up for her to have a nice little lunch where your friend waits on you. Have a few nice entrees from her favorite place. Or get creative and do it yourself. Think outside the box.
