Why does he think I'm high maintainence?

I like expensive things (certain brands of shoes, purses, etc.) so, I buy these things for myself. I'm 24 years old and have a nice marketing job. I pay for everything I have. I don't expect my boyfriend to buy these things for me, and I make that clear. I enjoy having the money to by myself things. So why does my boyfriend always act like I'm high maintenance when I don't ask him for anything?

I'm confused. I thought "high maintainence" meant that I demanded all of these things from SOMEONE else, not provided them for myself.
