I think it's somewhat dumb that some guys spend a load on their girlfriend that they've been dating for like a week (when they barely know them). This one guy for example I used to have classes with was complaining about spending $100+ dollars on his girlfriend at the mall when they literally only dated for a week. I asked him why and he was just like "idk". She never asked him for anything either; he just decided to buy her something expensive. Idek if they dated a month, but I just wouldn't spend a lot of money on a relationship at the beginning.
it could be a cultural thing with him though I don't know but he's Bosnian and I'm pretty sure his fam has money.
tbh if a guy bought me something super expensive, I might not accept it. If I do, it'll only be bc I feel "guilty" for not appreciating it which I would appreciate it but not feel worthy of it. I would feel pressure to have to buy him a gift too. I just think any pricy or material gifts shouldn't be given at the beginning of relationships bc it creates expectations.

Because lots of guys believe that the girl is doing them a favor by going out with him, and they think they have to ply her with gifts just to make her like him. Mostly it comes from a combination of being a caring person and having low self-esteem.
