But you can always find ways to repay them, like my sister's boyfriend who left money hidden at my Aunt and Uncle's house to repay them for meals and everything before they left...that way they'd find the money and couldn't make him take it back because they'd be gone haha. So instead of feeling guilty (which you shouldn't be feeling anyway; it is their own choice to do these things), just plot how you'll pay 'em back!

Gibson Twist wrote:That kind of thing is actually quite insulting in response to a generous act. Besides, if the relationship is one that you want to turn into a kind of forever thing, keeping a tally of who pays for what can cause problems...in fact, this thread proves it already is for you. As long as one person isn't paying for everything and the other pays for nothing, then the best way to look at it is that you both pay what you can to have what you need.
