I have a boyfriend, we have been together a year now, and I love him very much, but there is just something I am not sure about, this is a problem, let me explain, Everytime that I have money, I like to buy myself something nice, but when he knows this he asks for something too, he will pick something like a child in a candy store, I tell him I was going to buy me something with it, he says"It is only $50, besides I gave you money last time to spend, and I'm taking you to dinner. But for some reason I always have to give money. I hate this, what can I do??? Any help will be appreciated.

Your boyfriends seems to be using guilt as a weapon of choice here. He is manipulating you into giving him YOUR money! You should not have to hand over YOUR money to him. Just because he may have given you money before, gives him no right to take yours!! My suggestion to you would be that the next time he asks you for YOUR money, refuse him, but stand firm in your refusal! He may get upset, but you need to put an end to this!! You should be able to buy yourself something nice with a little extra money. I'm sure he would do the same if the situation was reversed! I hope this helps a bit, and please let me know if I can help any more!! Good luck!!
