Would This Bother Anyone Out There?
My boyfriend has some good qualities, but this cheap thing is a real sore spot for me. I grew up in a family where my dad would make a face if I asked him for a dime for a candy bar, my brother would give me flowers for my b-day that he had taken from the altar after a wedding, and my other brother would give me a piece of jewelry for Christmas - that he had taken out of my drawer that had been given to me years before from someone else!
So...given my past history, I don't think I'm expecting too much to try to find a generous man. Back to my boyfriend...several times he has given me something, and I thank him, and then, under his breath, he will say, "That's $10 please". He came to my mom's house to celebrate her b-day with me and brought flowers. I thanked him. Once again, he said, "$10, please." I know he is kidding....or is he? I don't think so. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
