coconut5 Posted July 19, 2017 Share Posted July 19, 2017 Next couple of months we will be one year together. We rarely argue. Relationship is great in general, but yesterday something happened and I felt hurt. I must say my boyfriend is financially stable, he makes 600k+/year, own a couple million dollar house and multiple luxurious cars. So money was never an issue in the relationship. He does not support me financially and in my meanings I too do things to show him appreciation (like a few hundred dollar gift he will be getting in the mail next week for his birthday). So What I mean by showing numbers is that usually what is considered much to others, may not be much to him. Yesterday he called to tell me he was getting out of work early and invited me for lunch. Soon after we went to Olive Garden and we were talking about some ideas when the waitress asked what we would like. I order something out of the regular menu ($7 more expensive than the lunch menu, since it was meat), after she left he turns to me and asked if I did not order something from the lunch menu, knowing it was cheaper because I knew he was the one paying. I answered: "no, babe... this is what I want, but no big deal, I pay for lunch today" He kept on going saying how I was spoiled like my nephew (He always orders the most expensive for my sister to pay, his bill can easily be a couple hundred dollars for him alone). I apologized and asked him to stop and he just could not to the point I told him I was not hungry anymore and would like to go home immediately. He has being apologizing since, saying how stupid he acted, it was a though day at work, etc... But it made me wonder because even though I do fine financially, seeing my partner spending thousand of dollars on pretty much anything he wants (his money), but offending and crushing me over a $15 dish is not what I look for in my life. I feel I'm done, he feels like he made a mistake, but I should forgive because he learns from his mistakes and it's the first time he ever did it. PS make it clear. No purse was ever bought to me, or shoes or expensive jewelry. He pays for our trips which is his idea. . I would like some input. Link to comment
