    Someone once asked me

    if I ever wanted a promise ring from my boyfriend of 7 years now that he is in the Navy. I had never really thought of it much beforehand. I do not doubt his loyalty and nor does he distrust me. But I don't think I need such a materialistic thing. Something like that couldn...

    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.

    two years ago for Christmas,

    every time my boyfriend asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I told him to please not get me jewelery because I wouldn't wear it and it would be a waste of money. I literally said that like six times. So of course, he goes out and buys me a 250 dollar white gold diamond...

    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

    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 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...

    Too many societies have been tricked into

    I'm a cheesy pickup line,
