What do you do for the best BF in the world?

  1. My totally wonderful, best boyfriend in the world, just got demoted at his job... sort of...

    My bf is a cop and landed his dream job in his dream city 2 years ago. This year, due to budget cuts, he got forcibly (sp?) transferred to a very boring job vs. getting laid off. Tomorrow is his first day at a new position which he is completely unexcited about. I want to do something special for him since we will both have tomorrow night off. I thought about cooking his favorite meal, renting his favorite movie, etc. to surprise him, but I want to do something MORE...

    Any suggestions? I feel so bad for him...

    Thank you!

    sorry to hear it , what a great girlfriend you are!

    sometimes its the little things that matter, you know , nice dinner, quality time with him , complimenting him on how well endowed he is , candlelight, dirty talk, poetry , strip tease,
    nah seriously , just wanted to make ya smile for a second there...
    you have to reinforce to him how fantastic he is , and that you love him ...
    hopefully it wont be as bad as he thinks
    and that over time he will be inspired by his work...
    keep us posted friend

    Thanks Wendy... I'm just at a loss for ideas! He didn't get much notice so I didn't get much time to prepare...

    Total body massage! Yep, that'll make him feel better! Don't forget to do the feet!! Buy some special oil for the occasion...soothing music...he'll be feeling better in no time.

    You must be a caring GF to be so empathetic.

    Good luck to you both...life just isn't fair sometimes is it?

    Now that's something special she could do for him. Lactate. Or at least pretend.

    There are areas that are actively recruiting cops.
    Why not compile a list of cities and towns that
    he could apply for a new cop-job at. Then the full body
    massage, strip tease, whatever...
    I think if he still wants to be a cop he would appreciate it.

    just offer yourself. be yourself. LISTEN and care. Take him out to eat and have a nice bottle of wine (or beer) and change the venue a bit for him. I think that would go a long way to his feeling better . You are indeed kind to care.

    They all sound great...do whatever you'd like to do...maybe you'd get a treat in return. Shag.

    Very thoughtful Rachel, I'm sure he'll appreciate any effort you make
