It's a similar concept of women not accepting expensive gifts from men that they're not engaged to. You don't want to take any resources from a person that you're not married to as it could bind them up; for men financially and for women usually emotionally. The idea is to treat the other person with the utmost respect and to make sure that person isn't devalued in any way because of your relationship. Women shouldn't leave men financially drained and men shouldn't sleep with another man's future wife.

Yea during my dating years I remember feeling very uncomfortable with any gifts from any guy that went above a couple hours' worth of work. It indicated a level of seriousness that I wasn't interested in, and I would refuse said gift while feeling bad at the same time. I still remember the first Valentine's day I had with my husband while we were just dating, I was nervous as fuck because I wasn't ready to commit and I didn't want any jewelry, chocolates were just fine! Anything that was too much would 've meant I had to give it back and it would be over. Luckily for me he read me right and knew it was too soon :).

These days, it's all about the gibs, it seems. Poor taste. Guys think they're showing how serious they are, girls are just taking without even considering where it's coming from.
