Girls Don’t Want Everything, They Just Want To Be Loved


Over the weekend someone said to me, “He can buy you whatever you want. You should go for him.” The first thought that came through my head was that is not at all what most girls want, and that is definitely not what I want.

I wasn’t interested in him and him having money didn’t make me any more interested. What good is a hallow relationship without love and passion?

In the same night I also over heard someone say, “I give her whatever she wants and I buy her everything she asks for. I don’t know what else she wants.”

Expensive gifts and dinners aren’t everything. Money doesn’t replace love, money doesn’t fill in the gaps of being lonely in a relationship and money surely doesn’t keep you warm at night. Money doesn’t make you soup when you’re sick, money doesn’t hold the umbrella over your head in the rain and money doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy inside from passion.

I don’t want a relationship that is flooded with gifts that are trying to replace love because love can’t be replaced.

Love can’t be covered up or over powered by anything. Love is love and there is nothing more dominant than it.

Love is like magic, sometimes it’s impossible to understand or figure out, but no one has to truly understand it other than the ones who are creating the show, as they as they can make it work nothing else matters.

Love makes you feel more alive than anything. It gives you butterflies and makes your heart skip a beat. It makes you nervous, jittery, excited and passionate. Love makes your heart race and your knees tremble. Love is filling and honest, it is not something that can be replaced or bought.

I want passion. I don’t want comfort.

I want to kiss someone like they are the air that fills my lungs, like their kiss is the only thing keeping me alive.

I don’t want gifts from someone; I’ve never wanted gifts. I’ve never wanted to marry rich so I could live a luxurious lifestyle. I would take being poor and happily in love over being with someone just because they can spoil me. That’s not love, and that is not a relationship I’m interested in because money can’t buy happiness.

I don’t need diamonds and pearls to make me happy, I just want your love. I don’t need you to be my hero; I just want you to be there for me. I don’t need you to show me off in front of your friends, I just want to feel special to you.

Money can’t create feelings that aren’t there and sometimes as humans we think that fancy gifts can make up for mistakes or lack of attention, but in all reality, they can’t. All women really want is love, attention and to be appreciated.

There is no price tag on giving someone your heart.

Every girl just wants mean something to someone, to feel a burning passion of love. She wants to give her love and receive it back. She doesn’t want to be bought and surrounded by meaningless gifts, she wants to enfolded in your arms and have you reciprocate the nice things she does for you.

Money can’t help you solve your problems together, money can’t wipe away your tears and money can’t build a solid, happy relationship, but true love can and it always does. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
