My boyfriend of 6 months is great in many ways: kind, supportive, funny, etc. But (of course) there's one thing about him that's been bugging me, and I can't tell if I'm being unreasonable or not. The best way I can come up with to describe it is that he seems to feel... entitled. [more inside]

Is this low self-esteem, or plain lies, or what? And what the heck should I do about the whole thing?
