I Am Not a Roses and Diamonds Type of Girl

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 12,504 People

    We've all had those moments in our lives

    where we think we know what we want, and what we truly want and need is out of the question. I've never been a diamonds, roses & chocolates type of girl. I'd rather walk around the beach with my significant other, or go on a bike ride around a trail park. Ha Yes I am a nature...

    I've always joked about saying I'm not a hearts

    and flowers girl, I'm more of a Jack Daniels and xbox kinda girl! Sadly, the way I am and the way I act (far from girly girl!) means I tend to become one of the lads! Don't get me wrong, I love hanging around with my guy friends, but it seems that they sometimes forget I'm a...

    I don't wear dresses,

    skirts, or heels. Make up is complicated and I like to stay natural. I don't want jewelry as a gift because what am I supposed to do with it? Wear it? No-I have my band t shirts for that. (My skin is allergic to jewelry anyway) Roses are pretty but eh. Give me food, music, and...

    I do like flowers, yes.

    I can pawn off diamonds, yes. However, I'd be just fine with hiking boots and a good trail. I much prefer to be outside, down, and dirty, then prim and proper. It's just no fun to have to be contained all the time, and you can't really let lose while staying rose and diamond.

    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 prefer the wonderful gift of time

    and attention to anything else. To me a good conversation or a "hey how's your day?" is better than any materialistic item ever will be. My entire life I have struggled to find that guy. The one who will give me the time and attention I crave desperately. We live in a word where...

    I don't need roses, I don't need any flower.

    I don't need diamonds, I don't need any gem. Just show me that you care, and it'll be good enough for me.

    I'm the girl who prefers one rose instead of a

    dozen. I'm the girl who would rather stay in on a Friday night than go to a wild party with random strangers. I'm the girl who wouldn't make you wait on her hand and foot, but would do anything to make you happy. I'm the girl who would enjoy having a movie night rather than...

    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.

    why hand me a bouquet of flowers when they're gonna die soon. I think i would like flowers better if they were just seeds or in a pot so i could plant it??. As for diamonds, please don't. My boyfriend already knows I'm not that kinda girl. I don't really wear jewelry anyways. I...

    My family is always trying to get me to dress

    nicer. But I'm 15. The only places I usually go are school and home! It just bugs me because I work so hard with everything else, and they are constantly telling me I need to fix my hair and change clothes. I feel like they care more about the clothes than the person in them.

    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...

    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'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.
