Before I go deep into this topic, let me give you a short answer to this question.

 

Should your boyfriend pay for food? Your boyfriend should pay for food when you cannot pay for it, when he promised to treat you, when he asked you out on a date and when you have always been paying for food.

 

So, before I go far, let me elaborate on what you need to know about the points I just shared with you.

 

Your boyfriend should pay for your food when you are not capable of paying for it. If you are broke and you have no means to find money to pay for it then he should pay for it.

 

He should understand that you are not able to pay for the food and that is why you need him to do it for you.

 

Let him know that you have no money and you need him to pay for your food. That is if you haven’t been asking him to pay for your food.

 

Explaining yourself to him about your situation will make him understand why you need him to help you clear your bills.

So, when you are not able to pay for your food your boyfriend should pay for it.

 

The moment you have no money to pay for your food you should let your boyfriend know so that he can help you out.

 

That is on the side of you not being capable to pay for your food.

 

There are some cases whereby your boyfriend promises to treat you with your favourite meal as a gesture of being grateful for something that you did for him.

 

When your boyfriend promises to treat you with a pizza he should be the one paying for it. You should not pay for the pizza since he is the one who promised you that treat.

 

If you pay for the pizza that will not be a treat anymore.

 

He should pay for your food when he promised you to do it as a treat, and there is no shame in that. If he told you that he will buy you your favourite meal then he should pay for that.

 

Don’t take your money and pay for it yet he promised you that he will do it.

 

This is another situation that will force your boyfriend to pay for your food.

 

If your boyfriend asks you out on a date, he should pay for your food during that date.

 

As a dating rule, the one who asks the other out is the one supposed to pay for that date.

 

But if it’s your first date, you should let him pay for everything on that date, if you want to know why I recommend that check out the article below.

Your boyfriend should pay for your food if he asked you out. A guy will never ask you out on a date if he hasn’t prepared himself. It’s clear that he has budgeted for that date and everything is set up according to his means.

 

So, when he has asked you out on a date, he should pay for your food without any questions.

 

He has hosted the date and he should take care of all the things that you need.

 

But if you insist on paying for your food then there is nothing wrong with it.

 

You won’t be breaking any set customs, as long as it’s something that you want to do.

 

So, your boyfriend should pay for your food on a date. This is something that should stick with him. If he knows nothing about it then you should enlighten him.

 

Not all guys are aware of this.

 

If you have been the one paying for food now and then and your boyfriend rarely does that, he should pay for your food to make things even.

 

This shows that he is relying on you to pay for his food too.

 

Your boyfriend should pay for your food if you have always been paying every time. This is something you will have to remind him of if he has forgotten.

 

It can be that you have been paying for your food and he has never offered to pay, and he has forgotten that he also should pay for it.

 

Remind him to pay for your food if you have been always paying. If he will not pay for your food then know that he is using you and you should stop paying for food.

 

If he is a guy who doesn’t want to pay for your food then this is the kind of man who will lay all the financial responsibilities on you in the future.

 

Do you want someone like this?

 

A guy who is caring enough and understands how money issues can affect your relationship will never let you pay for food every time. He will understand that it’s his responsibility to take care of you and not the other way around.

 

So, can we talk about the actions that you should take when your boyfriend doesn’t want to pay for your food?

 

What to do when your boyfriend doesn’t pay for your food

1. Find out why he doesn’t do it.

If your boyfriend doesn’t pay for your food this is the first thing you should do.

 

You have to find out why your boyfriend doesn’t pay for your food so that you can reason with him.

 

Don’t just jump to conclusion that your boyfriend doesn’t want to pay for your food simply because he doesn’t care about you.

 

You have to know your boyfriend’s financial situation before you decide to pressure him to pay for your food or blame him for what he does.

 

You can find out why he doesn’t pay for your food by observing him first.

 

Is he in a situation he can pay for your food? Is he struggling to pay his bills? Does he have the money to pay for your food?

 

If your boyfriend doesn’t have the money simply because he is struggling financially then this is understandable. He can’t pay for your food simply because he is struggling financially.

 

So, if you know that he finds it hard to clear his bills, do you think it will be easier for him to pay your bills?

 

The next thing you should do if you can’t find out why he doesn’t pay for your food is to ask him.

 

Have a mature conversation with him and ask him why he doesn’t pay for your food.

 

The response that he will give you is what you should use to take your next action.

 

If there is anything that makes it harder for him to pay for your food then he will let you know about it.

 

2. Let him know how you feel about it.

The next thing you should do if your boyfriend doesn’t pay for your food is this; you have to let him know how you feel about what he does.

 

Talking to him before you take an action is something you should think of doing.

 

Your boyfriend is not an angel, it can be that he doesn’t know that you need him to pay for your food.

 

Also, he may be thinking that you don’t want him to pay for your food especially if you have never asked him to.

 

So, don’t just assume that your boyfriend knows it all and he is just testing you out.

 

Let him know how you feel about what he does, if it’s something that he wasn’t doing intentionally then he will understand that he was doing something wrong and he will promise to change.

 

But if he wasn’t paying for your food for a certain reason, he will let you know about it and this will give you the direction you should take.

 

Communication is essential when it comes to solving most relationship problems.

 

3. Take action according to his response.

If your boyfriend told you that he doesn’t pay for your food due to a certain issue that you did and you know you can fix it then you should do it.

 

For instance, if you did something to annoy him to the extent he gave up paying for your food then you should let him know that you are going to change that.

 

Let your boyfriend know that you will do everything you can to fix the mess you made.

 

You never know, it can be that you did something to irritate him without even knowing about it and that is why he is not paying for your food.

 

So, if there are any misunderstandings between the two of you, try your best to clear them up if you want your boyfriend to pay for your food.

 

But if you find out that your boyfriend doesn’t want to pay for your food because he is just selfish and stingy then you should let him know that you are not okay with it.

 

Tell him that you are not happy with what he is doing and he should change immediately.

 

You are dating, he should support you financially and also you do the same.

 

If your boyfriend doesn’t offer to pay for your food even when you ask him to then know that he is not a guy you should stick with.

 

This is someone who will not support you in the future and you should let him go.

 

On the other hand, if you have always been paying for food, you should stop doing it and let him do it.

 

If he won’t pay for food completely then you should just break up with him.

 

Lastly…

 

Your boyfriend should pay for your food when you aren’t able to do it, when has promised to treat you and when he asks you on a date.

 

Paying for your food is like supporting you financially. If you have no money your boyfriend should help you out with that.

 

If your boyfriend asked you out on a date, he should take the lead in paying for your food. Don’t pay for it if he offered to take you out on a date.

 

That is his budget and he should cover it.

 

Your boyfriend should pay for your food if he offered to treat you, it will not be a treat if you pay for the food. Let him pay for it.

 

Also, if you have been always paying for food for both of you, you should let him pay other times. If he doesn’t offer to pay you should ask him to pay for the food.

 

If your boyfriend doesn’t want to pay for the food and there is no solid reason as to why he doesn’t want to, you should let him know how you feel about what he does.

 

Break up with him if he doesn’t give you the right answer you want. The truth is that if he can’t pay for your food now, he will never support you financially in future.
