Her Boyfriend Weaponizes His Gifts During Arguments. Should She Stop Accepting Them?
"My boyfriend and I have been together for three years now and we have started arguing a lot more than usual. During the arguments my boyfriend likes to throw in my face what he has purchased for me or what he has done for me over the years, and though I have done things for him I resist the urge to throw things back at him. I don't believe you do things for people just to speak on it later. However, after our arguments die down he has a habit of wanting to spend money and gift me. We recently got into an argument because I commented that prefer that he doesn't spend money on me and he acted offended. I explained to him how I am tired of having material things thrown in my face. I have never based for any of the gifts though I am always appreciative of the gestures. He tried making excuses saying that he only said that because he was upset and that I am acting immature because technically his words held much truth. Should I stand my ground and not accept any more gifts or am I overreacting?" -Candice.
