Once I needed advice on an unrelated situation and I asked him to see things from my point of view rather than from an older persons point of view.
He replied that he can do that for his daughter but not for me.
He is a great cook and he cooks for me often but he makes me feel very uncomfortable asking him for things that cost money.

It is give and take, and time for you to understand that he is older, probably does care for you, but in a different headspace, and for you to grow up and be supportive, not tear him down.
I think that it is great that he provides for his daughter. He is uncomfortable with me living in his house with him, yet he has no problems paying the mortgage for the house that his ex-wife and child lives in.I am not with him for money but I think that a man should buy his girlfriend things every now and then. Sometimes I wonder if he doesn't do these things for me because he used to do it for his wife and the relationship didn't work, so he feel disenchanted, like there is no need to invest that much into a woman.
