New boyfriend expects expensive gift
I have a new boyfriend of 2 months. He asked me tonight if I thought about exchanging gifts with him. And I said, you want to buy me a present? And he says that he would like a $500 set of Wireless speakers. I told him that I couldn't afford that type of a gift. He knows that I am getting a settlement from my exhusband next week and he mentioned that he knew I would have the money next week. I am using the settlement to put a down payment on a townhouse. I will also need a couch and a new bed as I do not have either. Also, I don't think it matters what I'm doing with the money because it is my money.
When I told him that even when my husband and I were married we had not exchanged such high ticket items, he basically said "I am not your ex husband."
I am questioning so much about this relationship as of this moment. How would you handle this situation?
