Additionally, a few others came up with some great ways for this woman and her boyfriend to reciprocate!

“Omg as someone who loves to bake I’d ask what his favorite treats are and use those eggs to bake him a sweet treat,” said one commenter.

Another added, “Maybe invite him over for dinner or a cookout sometimes. Maybe he’s doing this bc he is lonely trying to make friends and enjoys getting out and talking to everyone.”

These are excellent suggestions!
