Anytime my boyfriend does something nice, he feels like I owe him...
...Is there a nice way to tell him to stop doing things for me, because I don't want to feel obligated to him? Like, if we go out with his friends, that's considered "normal," but if we go out with my friends, he thinks that I "owe" him. Same goes if he happens to buy me a gift that I didn't even ask for. It's frustrating.

Tell him flat out you don't owe him anything those are things couples normally do, sometimes you see something nice and think I should get this for my boyfriend and you get it for him. You don't have to buy him something just because he got you something

Is he vaguely saying you owe him, or are you always supposed to pay him back the same way?
hmm, sounds like he acts like it's a chore and not something he really wants to do unless it benefits himself. Sounds kinda selfish :\
Tell him to let you spoil him a bit... check out my question link

yeah... next time he makes you feel like that tell him you don't owe him sh*t and he does not owe you sh*t...u both are gf-bf... and such things are a natural part of relationships...make sure that the one gets your point.. he is your bf..u can be harsh with him once..not a big deal!
Well I guess it's unhealthy relationship. Better to broke with him and find someone.
Wow, he has a huge ego, not going to tell you to dump him because that's not the greatest advice but you need to have a serious talk with him about this.
