I have been with my boyfriend for almost 2 years. I do love him, but I have a problem with his money handling sometimes.
He has a job that pays well ( I have been going to school lately and am a casual worker).
In the two years he has been making payments on a brand new car, a new laptop, and a new 60" TV. He has also bought a brand new 3DS.
I do not ask for gifts, and we go out for a dinner once every couple months. He does cook dinners regularly, but I drive over to his place most of the time, so I find this to be a fair trade (gas money and all).
For V-Day he said that we will get each other gifts that are under $20. I have no problem with this, but then he turns around and says, 'The dinner I am taking you out to to my present to you actually, because I am spending more'. I was just kind of taken back by his comment as I sit surrounded by all these nice things he has.
I don't want to seem like a brat, but I kind of feel like one when I think about it.
Does anyone have experience or advice?

Can I have your boyfriends address? I would like to overnight him his trophy for doucebag of the year award. Let me tell you, there was a lot of contestants but he won with flying colors. He also beat out people for cheap ass of the year, dumb ass of the year and he was nominated for worst boy friend of the year but loss out to Chris Brown.
Alright, so he's not as bad as girl friend beater but he's still pretty sucky. Even if he didn't have all these nice things around him it would still be pretty messed up what he is doing but because he does have these expensive things it's that much more disgusting. You're his girl friend, and you've been his girl friend from two years...what he is saying when he buys all this stuff and doesn't spend money on you is that he cares about himself more than he does you. I real man would buy less stuff or lesser versions of things he wants (he could have gotten 50inch TV instead and brought you a nice necklace for V-DAY).
He's jerk and I think you should put your foot down. You deserve better than that, all girls do...in fact all people do. If you were a guy, I'd tell you the same thing.0
