    My now ex partner used to believe she could buy

    my love with gifts and not show me love. That's not how love works, I showered you with love and every gift I gave you I barely brought, instead I made your gifts with my creative mind and heart. As I believe in sentimental values. This whole relationship I might as well be her...

    Gifts Are Sweet

    They are very thoughtful trinkets. They have their "place" but I never ask for gifts. I would rather be "showered" with love of my guy or from my friends instead.

    Love Brings Tangible Gifts.

    I'd prefer to be showered with love, it's a much more satisfying and fulfilling gift  but any slightly more tangible gifts are welcome if love is not  forthcoming.

    And Not Even the Mush Mushy Kind ....

    I am not a huge fan of love, but sometimes I do crave touch, a hug, affection from the opposite sex. I am a firm believer that actions speak much louder than words - I always have, and I always will. I don't need diamonds, candy, toys, presents, I...

    What Do I Buy???!!!!

    I love my boyfriend to death.  But it's so hard finding a gift for him.  He just got a really great job... so he buys everything he wants and is still able to save! It's not fair. He's already bought me 2 Christmas gifts.  And he's making me a bunch of DVDs...

    Especially During The Depressing Winter Season

    The moments I spend with the people I love are way more significant to me than the amount of money they spend buying me gifts. My father sometimes comments on how my boyfriend rarely gets me presents on random occasions, and it always bothers me how he insinuates that that means...
