Why are ladies told to watch how a guy tips?/why do you pay attention to it?

Adam_INTJ
I've always heard that parents and friends will advise ladies to pay attention to if and how much guys tip servers and staff when on a date. As far as I can tell, this has been and remains a common piece of advise.

So, why do you personally pay attention to how much a guy tips, or advise ladies to watch how well a guy tips servers and staff? I'm not just asking why people give this advise, but also, if you do it yourself, why? I'm also curious if it's more of a question of if a guy tips, or if it also matters how much he tips. Does a 15% tip send the same message as a 20% tip?

There are lots of potential logical reasons, so the options I've listed are just the few that I can imagine. If I haven't listed your #1 reason for why give or take this advise, please comment!
Please comment also if you can't decide on a #1 reason--or if you want to rank multiple reasons!

It shows if he has much extra money. Broke guys are bad choices.
Vote A
It shows how generous he is. Cheapskates are bad choices.
Vote B
It shows how much he values other people. Guys who don't care enough about others to tip are bad choices.
Vote C
It shows how much he genuinely appreciates that people serve/help. Ungrateful guys are bad choices.
Vote D
It's just tradition. I or other do this or advise ladies to do this for the sake of the tradition.

I have never heard of or thought about this before.
