    It's the middle of Winter.

    Sometime in December while the warmth of loved ones for the holidays settles it's way into your heart, you grab yourself some hot cocoa and sit on your couch next to your love. They have the T.V. on playing one of your favorite, yet childish or cheesy movies. Wearing pajama...

    I like teddy bears, and having fun.

    If I was to get a gift from a guy it would be just spending time with him. I mean its not all about the items he gets you. Like I said with the teddy bear thing if I was wanting to receive something it would have to be a teddy bear. I don't know why so don't ask xD

    I'm a simple girl I like simple things.

    Cliches like roses and diamonds don't excite me. I just want a guy who is going to be there for me no matter what. That's a real gift.

    Roses And Diamonds

     I don't mean at all to say that i wouldn't appreciate the gifts;what I'm saying is a carnation and a crackerjack ring could hold just as much feeling for me. It's not the gifts. I have had the gifts. Big arrangements sent to me.  Diamonds for each finger and...

    I don't want the typical diamond. they're way too expensive, & i don't even think they're pretty :S I'd be completely fine with a nice turquoise ring instead haha. I'm sure my husband would be happy with that. and I wouldn't want roses for special occasions, they're just gonna...

    No True. Who does not like to get Roses

    and Diamonds? I admire when a man when they give Roses and Diamonds to their woman, if they could effort it.

    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 have never been in a relationship yet

    but I think about it a lot. Roses would be cool, so would diamonds, but flowers die and I'm not into jewelry, except for stud earrings. If someone were to give me a romantic present, I would like a nice dinner, or a night out somewhere. But since I'm slightly too young for...

    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.

    I Am. Much To My Surprise!

    My husband brought flowers home.  Roses. They're  absolutely beautiful and give me so much pleasure every time I look at them.  Now, he's done this before, maybe three times since we've been married.  I don't wonder why he's done it now...

    I love roses, but my preference would be they

    stay on the bush, where others can also enjoy them, and they bloom longer... I love to see them bloom in the garden... The smell is divine :0) As for diamonds yes I have them in my engagement ring, but I don't like all the stuff that goes on to get them, there for I don't...

    It's just that simple. I don't want diamonds or gold, I don't want expensive clothing or accessories, I don't want roses every single day, I don't want extravagant dinners. Although these things would be nice, I don't care for them because you could have the most lavish...

    I'd much rather have something

    that took thought. Something that tells me you listen wen I talk. I don't wear jewelry and I'm not a fan of roses, take me to see a band or give me something nerdy and it's much more touching for me.
