He is not cheap. Setting up “tests” to trap him into shelling out hundreds to thousands of dollars on your material whims is manipulative, shallow, and immature. Your issue is not that you have a tightwad for a new boyfriend, but rather that the financial outlay that you demand of a new partner is completely outlandish.

Yeah, this is a tough situation.

I would never ask my partner of 3 years to even spend over $1000 or even $300 on a material item I wanted such as a bag or a watch. Don’t revolve your relationship around money. Just enjoy each other, that is worth a lot more then expensive items. My partner helps out in other ways with money, such as grocery shopping, spoiling me with nice dinners out on the town and even sometimes a nice bunch of flowers every now and again.

I hope this helps 🙂

Two months ‘and some change’ of dating, and you expect a gift of over $1000? I am agog.

Wow….you are an absolute gold digger. He is likely sick of wasting his money on a shallow immature “woman” who expects this out of him. What makes you think it’s ok to ask for a $1100 LV bag? He needs to kick your ass to the curb ASAP. Your a waste of his time.

Have at it mods.

You’re kidding right??  You’ve been dating this guys TWO months and he buys  you a $500 dollar watch and you think he might be cheap??  No.  That is more than generous along with paying for everything when you go out.  And just a little after spending $500 on a watch for you, you want a $1100 bag??  I’m sorry, but this post does make you sound more like a gold digger than him being cheap.  I think it’s pretty ridiculous to be expecting a $1100 gift and upset that you didnt get it.

I cannot believe your post. I’ve been with my husband for 8 years and have never once in my life ever even thought to ask for a gift over a few hundred dollars for an ocassion. I’m sorry, but your entire post makes you sound cheap… not him.

I think the $500 he spent on you for Valentine’s Day was inapropriate and excessive. The fact that you have the gall to suggest an $1100 purse for a birthday gift blows me away.

Not only should he not pay for your makeup, you are out of your mind to think he should offer. Do you offer to buy his toothpaste or razor blades?

Pay for your things yourself.

You may as well just go stand on the corner and shake it to get material items, because this to me is NO different. Most decent women would actually be semi put off by a $500 gift after 2 months of dating.

And why are you on a wedding site? With your entitled attitude you won’t be planning a wedding anytimg soon.

The fact that this is OP`s only post, and that the whole thing is so utterly ridiculous, I guess troll.

VeronicaZ:  Do you think it’s possible he’s wanting a relationship thats not all about money? There are ways to spoil someone that are not monetary. That may be news to you.

Did you ever think he may just be trying to impress you? It’s blatently obvious your all about money so maybe hes just trying to keep up. Lay off the material item emphasis and see what happens…
