Splitting Bills in a Relationship

Group Therapy: I Feel Like My Boyfriend Owes Me

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

Back when he didn't have a job and I did, I spent all kinds of money on him. He lives about 40 mins away, so I would spend so much on gas to go see him, take us out to eat, buy him cigarettes, etc. I would spend all the money in our relationship for about the first 8 months.

Now the roles are switched and I don't have a job while he does. I'm still spending every bit of money I come across on gas to go see him, he never gives me gas money or anything. We sometimes go out to eat but only to fast food restaurants. I really don't want him to be spending money, because we're trying to save for an apt and he needs to pay his insurance, but is it bad to feel like he owes me?
