Giphy A broke man isn't the best boyfriend fit, because how can he devote the effort needed to be a great partner if he has to focus on the struggles and irritations of not making ends meet? So you deserve someone better too. And if he doesn't mean it and only pays your way because he can't go or do or have otherwise, then that's worth talking through, too. I sit on the sides of stages and it sounds amazing. There was a time when she made a lot more than I. Not unless you know it works for the guy and he likes it. Sure the person making more is paying more dollar wise - but their remaining splurge money is also more.
Even wives can make a living if they want. He'll fuss about how you spend way too much money at the mall. I really do get it. I wouldn't have a problem splitting the cost if we made the same amount of money, but we don't! I'm not even sure he's the father. But this relationship has made me question what exactly people like Peter are supposed to do with their privilege. Please let me know what you choose to do.
Then, It may be too late. Last Christmas, he gave me a wireless printer…. All I did was say yes. He pays for date perhaps only twice a year, but we do go out on date more than 100 times a year. He gives me gifts in boxes from MaxMara, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton, but the items inside are not from those stores and have no tags. He's just not the type of guy that wants to take care of a girl financially. If what you want is to feel and look the part of a society couple, tell your boyfriend exactly that.
If the prospect of losing you makes him want to consider trying to make changes, cool. Both scenarios almost always end poorly. I'll bet he does, but he does not think to offer you the same courtesy in your case. Some of the time he made lots more money than I did and some of the time I did. That leaves you wondering what gives? I never understand how women can rob husband of money, its like they have any entitlement to it?? There's this guy, he's my ex boyfriend and we dated off and on for two years. Do I wear all his cheap things when we see his friends, hoping to embarrass him? It should be enjoyed by both parties if they both truly love or care about each other. He's also not planning on getting a car once he leaves the city, so I'd have the only car which of course he would use yet not pay a dime for!

They started going out and went out for a while. He's still living with his parents but has stated that he isn't saving up for any major life goal a house, a car, college, etc. I have been dating my boyfriend for 4+ years.

Ideally, he'll want you to have your needs met -- and you'll want her needs met, too. Also not giving you gifts is not right, I'm sure he expects something on those days. Your problem sounds vain and it is hard to articulate the problem. In ten years, I have never thrown it in his face. The way your circumstances are he should be giving at least 70% percent.
