GF Complains tooooooooo much

I swear, every time I buy a new part for my car my GF knaws my ear off about how I shouldnt be wasting money on my car and I should be spending money on her. I got so tired of it, that I would buy things and install them really quickly before she noticed I had them sitting in my room, or just have the parts shipped directly to my shop.

Do any of you guys have GFs who think you like your car more than them?

My GF is the same. She calls my car "the other girlfriend". Its all good though. I do the same thing as you, I just put my new parts on and hope she doesn't notice. If she does notice it, I just play it low key. "Oh yeah, I got those from wherever and they were on clearance." But anymore, she just lets me do my own thing. I just make sure I take care of her as well as my car.

Is that how she put it, basically putting herself "in competition" with your car? How do you see it; is your car "in competition" with her for your attention?

I don't think money's the issue; you spend your money on what you see as important, but just spending money to help a relationship (i.e. gifts, etc) doesn't necessarily make it any better.

If she's important to you, and you love her, be sure to give her the time and attention she deserves, and make her feel special. But make sure she knows the car is important to you too, and that she needs to honor the things that are important to you.

Believe me I do love her. She has been with me since before I had the Celica. (Back in the 93 Ranger days of my life...) She knows that I love my car and its something I love to do. She also knows that I love her and that the car doesn't even compare. Just when I first got the celi she would give me a hard time about it and call it my "other girlfriend". Its all good she just loves to give me a hard time. Its not like I don't do that with her as well.

my girlfriend is supportive of me and my car...she says its my money, and if need be, she has her own...its awesome...I don't spend money on myself that often, and she encourages me to indulge every now and then...I pay my part of the bills, my own personal bills, and am still saving money for an engagement ring...if a girlfriend thinks your car is competition then she's insecure, and needs the boot...

man that sucks but like everyone else says its your money and your car. personally if you complained everyday and didn't respect my rights i'd break it off. But if you truly love her and shes worth it buy her something very nice for chistmas, should keep her quiet for a while.

kinda funny how you hide parts and install them though. whip

yea...my car is less then what I give her, if I spent the loney I do with her than I would have a show ride lol. But whatever brings the happiness(in bed *cough cough*) is better. I mean...are you gonna get married to your car, have sex with the tailpipe and have a bunch of baby celihumans or humelica's? So I'd pick which means more to you in your life and put your devotion there...but yea the GF does complain about the stuff I buy

I think most* GFs will complain to some extent. We just gotta have our priorities. And who says we can't love both? I love my celica, but its in a "work on it in my spare time" kinda way, not I'm gunna make celihumans ( thumbsup) with it. Seriously, I love my car, but not more than my GF. In fact, gonna get engaged in the near future.

No I alreay got some saved up for it. I went and priced rings this weekend. Damn, I keep thinking, 1 ring = 1 exhaust + 1 Power FC + 1 XM MiFi system and 1 year subscription for it.

No just kidding I wasn't really thinking that. Just since the way this thread is going...

My wife loves to ride in my car, because she says "it's sporty and nice". She drives a nice Nissan Altima, but she wants something sporty too. She can't drive mine, because she doesn't know how to drive manual and she gets frustrated when trying to teach her, so I just drive my car (more driving for me)...lol

Yeah her idea of a good christmas/birthday/anytime gift for me is something for my car. I don't complain. She gets me the little things that I want but aren't on the top of my list (cosmetic stuff). Its a pretty good deal. I get her shirts and flowers and dinners and all that good boyfriend stuff. Its a give an take. I'm happy, she's happy, its all good.

Well even if you're married you should still be able to spend, just make sure the bills are paid first...lol
I just tell my wife, "Cars is considered a hobby and cars is my hobby, that's what I love to do".

My gf gets so frustrated when i try to teach her manual. If were even on like a 1% incline and the car moves, she freaks and shes like "OMFG the car is drifting! what do i do!!" I'm like...um...its called the brakes...and then when she manages to get the car moving, first second she stalls, its ebrake and shes changing posts, instead of restarting and trying again

Yeah ac lighting! I was f**king with mine a while back and lost one of the bulbs that goes behind the ac. So now i've only got one side lit up. I've gotta dig around the shift boot area down there and see if I can find it. It pisses me off. You can't just buy the bulb from a dealer. You've gotta buy that whole little pannel with the ac lights on it. Bastards. Its like $70 for it. Just for the little light off of it.

Yeah, I told my girlfriend (politely) that this was my hobby and that if she didn't want to participate in buying stuff for my car, she should find her own hobby to do. And she did. She has her dancing and I have my car. Works pretty good.
