That his gifts aren’t good enough
If you, even in the slightest way, criticize or tease a gift he gives you, he instantly gets into defensive mode. He seems angry, he tells you you’re ungrateful, but what it really is is his insecurity. Men actually worry a lot about getting you a gift that you’ll enjoy—one that is romantic, thoughtful and useful. Do his poor ego a favor and gush over the frog earrings he bought you.
