I Am Not a Roses and Diamonds Type of Girl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,212 People

    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.

    What I would really love is a hemp wedding ring.

    .. No sparkles, no gems, just a simple, earthy band. :)

    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 :)

    Roses are cliche and frankly I dont care

    for jewelry. To me these are easy to give without any real thought attached to it. Its assumed that every woman wants to be wined dined and given roses and expensive jewelry so men just buy that because it's what 'they' say to buy her. If you know me then you'd know a better...

    Lets have adventures,

    travel the world together, have really meaningful conversations, dare to be crazy together, play in the rain, talk about cars&superheroes, play videogames, and overall be there for each other's backs not only as lovers but also as best friends :D

    Too many societies have been tricked into

    How about just holding hands

    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.

    Don't get me wrong; they are pretty.

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

    I'm not one to ask for much.

    Most definitely not diamonds. For God sake, please don't bring me flowers...(I'm allergic to them)... Instead of diamonds, just kiss me. Hug me tight. Love me all night. Wrap your arms around me... Roses are beautiful, but they don't last forever. I want memories to last that...

    Roses are lovely. Diamonds dazzle.

    I appreciate them for what they are. Neither will touch my heart or win my affection. I would sooner give my heart to the man who gives me his time and focus.

    While I definitely don't mind

    when my guy gives me flowers or buys me things, what really gets me is the way you treat me in general. While actions speak louder than words, I don't need you to buy me expensive things or go out of your way to get me things to prove to me that you love me; just be here with me...

    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'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.
