I Am Not a Roses and Diamonds Type of Girl

    a perfect time to me is staying at home

    and watching a movie, maybe go to a diner or frozen yogurt place. Fancy settings are a bit too much.

    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.

    Im a girl that enjoys the simple things in life

    when it comes to a relationship all I ask for is your Love and attention you dont have to buy me off with gifts that wont last forever only a memory of that will live on. I value loyalty and proving your worth more than materialistic crap..

    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.

    Waste of money in my opinion.

    I would rather spend that money having fun with my significant other. I don't mind roses but jewelry such as rings I can't stand.

    I would love someone a lot more

    if instead of giving me roses and diamonds they would order in pizza and we would watch Netflix for 5 straight hours. I still need romance just a different kind.

    I don't mind getting flowers now

    and then. It's sweet, but I always feel bad receiving jewelry due to it usually being expensive and I tend to feel bad accepting fancy or expensive gifts. I'm not a high maintenance girlfriend, lol. I prefer to get myself jewelry if I want it so bad. Instead of jewelry, I...

    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.

    Too many societies have been tricked into

    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 think I could be though.

    I wouldn't object to someone giving me either. It might take some getting used to at first....might shed a few tears and all But roses and diamonds are pretty.

    I'm really a food and video games kinda girl.

    Roses aren't impressive and diamonds are just expensive clumps of carbon. I'd just prefer to soend the day playing Diablo together and eating junk.

    The most romantic thing you could ever do is

    write me something a poem , a story, or even draw something . I think that's more romantic than flowers or jewelry that I'm not going to wear.

    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...

    when it comes to gifts. I really don't need any of that stuff. it's not something that appeals to me. I want more than just gifts. roses and diamonds seem so petty when there is so much else.
