    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.

    I never understood why guys give girls flowers.

    Like what does he expect me to do with flowers? Hang them in a vase and stare at them as if I have nothing better to do with my life? Give me chocolate instead, now that's something I could actually put to use to.

    Nope. There is nothing wrong with roses,

    they are beautiful flowers but it's so cliche, so done! I would love a hand full of wild flowers, maybe some lavender or even daisies. I don't enjoy diamonds either, it looks too flashy on me and I'm a pretty plain and simple giiiirl.

    a box of chicken nuggets do me just fine.

    I don't need the finer things to know how you feel I don't like fancy dates, I want movies at home with animal crackers in our PJ's. I actually feel quite awkward when someone spends so much on me.

    The most romantic thing you could ever do is

    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.

    I don't believe in romance.

    I do believe in love however. Frankly I think the best type of love is the kind with a lot of trials and with minimal bells and whistles. Love that conquers and grows and sometimes hurts-I'd much rather hope for that.
