Hello, I am dating my good guy friend, and he's from a really wealthy family, he's in med school etc and I study law but my family's nowhere as rich as he is and I feel intimidated because whenever it comes to special occasions like birthdays and Christmas I can only afford chocolate/homemade card/roses/electronics but he takes me on his private jet/surprise holidays overseas. I'm grateful but I feel like it's unfair for him and it's not realistic in the long term cos he will get bored of what I can't give him.
But we do have awesome times together, and share numerous hobbies/tell great jokes.
Just worried about the different background and if his parents will think less of me. Thanks :)

I think that a sincere gift by your lover, no matter how small, is the best gift1

Talk to him about it. He probably won't mind though, otherwise he wouldn't have bothered dating you in the first place.
Ever thought about it like this: he already has everything buyable he could wish for, he doesn't need any other fancy stuff. What he wants is love and companionship, the things you can't buy. He doesn't want you to be rich because it wouldn't improve his life anyways, he wants you to be you. I still understand how you feel intimidated though.0
