    Nah, hate those kinds of gifts.

    .. Well if a guy buys me video games (Dynasty Warriors, Warriors Orochi, GTA, WoW, LoL, The Elder Scrolls and etc.) I'd love him till the end. Plus I hate those matching t-shirts (ex. This guy loves πŸ‘‰ and this girl loves πŸ‘ˆ) If we'd have matching band shirts (Evanescence...

    Don't get me wrong; they are pretty.

    But roses die fast, especially in my house, and diamonds cost too much.

    In a relationship I enjoy being surprised with

    things I would least expect. like maybe a bacon wrap designed like a rose , or different chocolates from different parts of the world. Just something unoriginal and well thought out. is anyone else like this ?

    Roses are cute and diamonds are fancy.

    But I would much rather snuggle up on a couch with my boyfriend with a pizza and a good movie. Expensive presents and nights out are always loved and appreciated but sometimes unnecessary. It's not about the gifts it's about the love :)

    This would be an appropriate time to quote The

    Beatles."Money can't buy me love" haha I'd rather have a guy take me out on an inexpensive and memorable date rather than splurge on such painfully materialistic and orthodox tokens of love.

    I suppose you could sell the diamond

    and get something better but it doesn't show much thought or imagination and I'll never understand how giving someone a dead plant is supposed to be romantic.

    Eh, fancy stuff just sort of bores me.

    I don't wear jewelry often, unless it's a friendship bracelet or something handmade. I like flowers, but daisies are much cooler than roses, and I could do without anyway. A great gift would be a book or even just having a movie night together.

    I HATE the fact that some women seem to EXPECT

    gifts and roses and jewels from their SO. And if they don't receive them, they get upset and think their SO is thoughtless. A guy can go out and buy you roses, but that doesn't solidify your relationship or make it stronger. Valentine's Day annoys me so much because I see people...

    I enjoy deep intelligent conversation

    but for the longest I was so naive. Some men will buy you flowers and diamonds while others will blow you hot air with their words. I am older and wiser now. Fooled me once boys, don't be mad when our conversation ends as just that, conversation.

    Honestly, I never do ask people to buy me stuff.

    And I don't get why girls would ever drag along their boyfriends to the shopping mall. It's only fun if both parties enjoy their time. All I really need is a person to care for me and can hold really, really long conversations with me.

    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 feel different that way.

    Well, while everyone enjoys getting roses, jewelery, chocolate and all that stuff...I don't need them. If someone does something nice for me, then I'll be happy for the rest of the day. No one really needs me anyway, to be honest. I'm weird and different from everyone else.
