    No True. Who does not like to get Roses and Diamonds? I admire when a man when they give Roses and Diamonds to their woman, if they could effort it.

    How about pizza and we can cuddle and watch a movie? Roses are best in nature for everyone to see. diamonds? I'm good without wasting money on something I don't need.

    I'm really not. I'd rather you give me a rock or a black, silver ring than roses and diamonds. Give me something that I can save: something that can't die or be broken. Something...

    I LOVE the smell of coffee. It's such a nice scent and very relaxing. Unfortunately I don't like the taste of it. Too bitter to my liking.

    I have always liked the smell of coffee. ESPECIALLY IN THE MORNING! I've never really enjoyed the taste. I like it iced with chocolate or something... but not that even much.
