I Need to Be Showered With Love and Not Gifts

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I hate this heavy grief of mine. Why can't I be happy with who I am? Nobody should ever feel the need to be loved. Still can't find what's so wrong with me.
