he has a full time job and earns quite a bit of money where as I have a part time job
I always buy him little gifts like chocolate, sometimes dinner and little Nic nacs for his room
But he never does the same for me, I always tell him it would be nice for him to buy me flowers once in a while and I always stalk his ex girlfriends photos and I see photos of little gifts he bought her and everytime I tell him that he always says "that's the only thing i ever bought her ". For Valentine's Day which was yesterday I kept on telling him I would like some flowers just something little because I bought him something aswell but he bought me nothing
he did say that he tried too buy me flowers but everything was closed because he was working all day, which was nice because it shows me he put in effort and he told his parents he feels bad for not buying me anything. But I feel like it just wasn't enough
He did offer to take me to get ice cream but it felt like he asked me that because I was upset but than he took me to maccas to get a frappe to make up for it
Am I being to hard on him? I'm very appreciative of him and I always thank him, but sometimes I do get very upset

People have different expressions (Languages) of love. Some like spending time, some like gifts, some like favors, nothing wrong with any of them it's just how people see affection being displayed. So he speaks a different language and doesn't get it, you should explain that gifts make you think he cares, even if they're not expensive.
