Very cheap boyfriend

Default profile image
My boyfriend is incredibly cheap. If he ever pays for anything for me in the company of other people he expects me to pay him back the next day. He never takes me out on dates. He always uses the same excuse when we're out: "I don't have enough cash on me"... Then use your card?! He'd never do anything as simple as buy me a drink let alone a dinner or a movie ticket. If he ever on the off chance does buy anything he makes sure I know the exact value of it so it's rude. On Valentines Day he bought me like a $2 fake rose and expected me to be happy and we didn't go out anywhere. I'm doing Honours and he's working so he doesn't really have any excuse. I really need to feel more appreciated by him but his cheapness annoys me to no end. How do I let him know he needs to stop being so effing cheap? He doesn't seem to get it even when I've mentioned it.

He's never going to "get it." This (generosity) is something that can't be taught. It's in his character to be overly frugal.

I hope he is not borrowing money from you! If you decide to spend your Life with him, your entire Life will go maintaining accounts of every cent you spend!

Find yourself an alpha male who instinctively puts his woman on a pedestal. Forget guys who are cheap and lousy with their generosity because they'll be cheap and lousy in all departments of life and this includes their relationships.
