My boyfriend who is 33 told me I am his trophy girlfriend after I asked him why he always insists on buying me new expensive outfits everytime we have a function to attend. (I'm 20) At first it was nice but I've never been overly comfortable receiving stuff I didn't pay for. I told him I didn't need anything new and he said "You're like my trophy wife only my girlfriend. I want to show you off."
I wouldn't mind so much if I thought he and his friends who are at these functions thought any less of me. Like I'm using him. Should I be concerned now that he's just using me or just accept the gifts?

No... he's using you. I assume you're probably sleeping with him. Basically he is calling you an object, a cool accessory. He tell's his friends "I got this hot girl, you've gotta see her she's really hot"... He thinks that you are a symbol of his success in life because he believes that pretty women come with financial success. The problem is... that it's an emotionless relationship from his perspective. Of course I'm breaking 'guy code' by telling you this stuff, but you seem like a nice innocent girl. Get out of this relationship, unless you are just looking for a man that will provide. If that's the case, just make sure you stay hot and are always on point around him and you should have a problems. Girls don't start aging till 26, but you can start Botox then to prevent frown lines.2
