I Am Not a Roses and Diamonds Type of Girl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,730 People

    I prefer thoughtful gestures.

    Hand picked flowers are better, because they require time and effort. They show someone took the time to search for the prettiest ones. Yes, I appreciate store bought flowers, some of them are pretty. However, I do not feel that they are any better than picked ones because...

    Too many societies have been tricked into

    placing so much value - monetary & emotional - on something so essentially worthless to human existence. My husband knows never to buy me diamonds. I wear only artificial diamonds & don't even have a stone on my wedding band. I am proud of my stance & I am so happy that we have...

    I'm not a materialistic type of girl,

    I prefer sweet words, big hugs and passionate kisses. A cuddle counts to me more than a necklace, a kiss on my neck stands stronger than a diamond ring, true love is always better than money and the things you can buy with it.

    and lifelong supply of ice cream And I'm all good :) Who needs roses and diamonds anyway? I mean seriously... You can't eat diamonds and you certainly can't play roses!? 😩

    I've always joked about saying I'm not a hearts

    and flowers girl, I'm more of a Jack Daniels and xbox kinda girl! Sadly, the way I am and the way I act (far from girly girl!) means I tend to become one of the lads! Don't get me wrong, I love hanging around with my guy friends, but it seems that they sometimes forget I'm a...

    I don't think I ever was,

    roses can't compare to a night alone with you or a person just sitting with you and talking with you and having deep conversations. diamonds will never live up to the fact that you stayed with me through everything, I don't need material things for you to show me you like/love...

    Roses are nice, but I'd

    rather some other type of flower. If you're gonna give a girl flowers, how about a flowering plant? Something that lasts beyond the week or so that cut flowers survive. As far as diamonds go, I just feel bad for the lives of the people working to mine them. I'd love to...

    Don't get me wrong. Give me a plant

    that I can put in my garden I'll nurture it year after year. Diamonds are beautiful I won't deny that. What I really want more than anything are memories. It doesn't have to be expensive or outrageous. Life is so hectic that the most precious thing a man can give me is his time...

    I am not a person who will fall

    for items like once my friend was sad and I gave her something and she cheered up then I was upset and no item helped but a simple hug and the words everything will be all right and now I believe her when she tells me this because the first time she was alright

    two years ago for Christmas,

    every time my boyfriend asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told him to please not get me jewelery because I wouldn't wear it and it would be a waste of money. I literally said that like six times. So of course, he goes out and buys me a 250 dollar white gold diamond...

    I'm a cheesy pickup line,

    handwritten letters, jokes and book kind of girl. Smart, sweet guys are nonexistent where I live. If a guy buys me a book (or hell, even TALKS to me about one) we are getting married post-haste.

    who says "I'm not like the other girls." because I feel like that saying is dumb. But it's really true in this case, I really don't like flowers or jewelry. Picked flowers depress me, am I the only one? Like... I don't want to watch the gift you gave me slowly die! How sad! It...

    I don't need your roses,

    because they are going to die anyway so why not do something else for me like tell me you love or do the dishes!!

    I don't want roses or diamonds.

    I want you to speak words that touch my soul, do things that move my spirit, love me with depth and purity, and ultimately give me the things that money can't buy.
