The girlfriend shared the incident on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum. She got her boyfriend a couple of presents for his 21st birthday. But when he received them, he immediately lashed out and accused her of being manipulative.
“My boyfriend turned 21 last week, and I bought him a new video game he had been wanting and a T-shirt,” she said. “He started ignoring me and leaving me on read after that. I asked him what was wrong, and he finally said it was unfair that I got him birthday presents because now he’s going to have to get me something for my birthday and that I am being manipulative.”
The boyfriend continued to give her the cold shoulder no matter what she said.
“I told him no, you don’t have to get me anything for my birthday, but I’d like to spend some time with you that day, but he said that it was a ‘d*** move’ that I got him gifts,” she explained. “He says I was trying to make him feel obligated. I told him it is the thought that counts and that he doesn’t have to get me anything but that if he does, I’d be happy with just a card, but he keeps saying he is unsure he can deal with a materialistic girlfriend.”
Reddit users thought the boyfriend was not exactly a keeper.
“That’s a huge red flag,” one user commented.
“His behavior is raising some red flags,” another wrote.
“Ask for the gifts back or dump the guy. Or both,” a person said.
