Everytime we have dinner at my place, I cover the costs (10-20$ every time). I pay 12$ for public transportation every single time I go to his house and I never ask a penny from him. So when we split for a 5$ meal, I feel insulted, as if he felt threatened that I would steal from him. And I'm pretty sure I spend more money than him on his presents (Christmas, birthday).

Does it really matter though tbh? I mean if you like the guy than it shouldn't really matter.
Whilst I'm not denying your point about who wouldn't want to be treated like a million bucks - I want to ask you something. Do you ever buy your boyfriend lunch or anything like that?
If the answers 'yes' - then I would say it's fine to feel that way. I mean I would like to be treated equally.
If the answer's 'no' - is it reasonable to expect your partner to pay for your sh*t when you haven't done the same for him? When in this day and age, you're most likely financially independent?
(It's blunt but I honestly didn't know any other way to put it)
Tbh I agree with the guy who said I would run if the girl expects me to buy her a lot of things xD
