    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
