    When I say that I'm not " A Roses

    and Diamonds type of girl" what I actually mean is that I don't dislike 'Roses and Diamonds' Because of course roses are pretty diamonds are lovely too what's more they are both gifts of Nature which I absolutely adore. No what I mean is that equally if not more often...

    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...

    Nope. Never have, never wanna be.

    I do like roses, especially red ones. But i would prefer something more lasting. I'm comfortable with just a beautiful stone my boyfriend found in a stream, because it meant he was thinking of me, and it's not expensive like diamonds or short lived like roses. A red rock, would...

    I could never understand

    why most women need diamonds or jewelry to feel loved! I don't care about those things I rather have a romantic time that is worth more than gold!

    I have always been the type of girl

    who likes to be outdoors. I would rather go somewhere fun and have an adventure then have a guy give me expensive gifts.

    Here are things you could buy me instead: - A

    small couch - A good TV - Some good horror movies And then we would sit cuddled up in that small couch looking at a horror movie and when it gets too scary I'll hide myself in your arms. Wouldn't that be nice to have such a soft, warm and physical contact than a hard, cold...

    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.

    I prefer things like: yarn,

    paint, canvas, cameras, and going on fun adventures. And if my fiancรฉ gets me flowers he knows roses aren't the thing. I love tulips and irises :)

    Don't get me wrong, I have a love

    for white roses. So when my boyfriend occasionally picks up a white rose, I couldn't be more thankful. But that's not what I'm full heartedly searching for in the relationship. I'm not looking for you to shower me in roses and diamonds, frankly, the only time I want you to give...

    I honestly think that roses are a waste

    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'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 do love flowers, and precious things,

    but I value the human heart more. A good person is defined by their fellow feeling, and their ability to absorb the complexities of life. A woman who desires more than her mate can provide doesn't truly love him, and love is the most important thing. I feel material things are...

    But if you want to buy me them I won't say no!

    Seriously though, I have never been 'high maintenance'. I am not particularly attached to material possessions and if a woman wanted to show her love to me, there are other, much more fun ways to do that.

    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.

    Not High Maintenance

    I totally agree with this group. When my husband and I were first together h used to give me little gifts because we could not afford bigger things. He seems to think that now that he is making more money I want diamonds and roses. I keep trying to tell him that is just not me. I...
