Me and my boyfriend have been together for a little over 3 months now, and things are really good mostly. But I feel like he is really stingy with money when it comes to putting money into our relationship, like going on dates, buying me a gift for valentines day, or anything really. But he has no problem spending money on energy drinks for himself or an $80 video game.
I just don’t understand why he is like this. I understand he has been single for a long time, so maybe he’s just not used to the changes that happen when you’re in a relationship. Am I over reacting? Am I being silly? Should I try to talk to him about it? What should I do?

You sound like you have a difference in priorities. You should talk to each other about finances.
You should definitely mention it to him, honesty is the best policy in relationships.
Youve only been together a few months. I think its probably a bit early to be worrying about how much money hes spending on you. Let alone comparing it to how much he will spend on himself. Its HIS money. He is not really under any obligation to spend money on you simply because youve been dating for 90 days.
