When A Man Asks What I Want

When a man asks what I want

I always respond with “nothing materialistic.”

I don’t want to be in debt of a man.

Besides, I am not the type to want material things like LV or Gucci handbags or Jimmy Choos.

I am not high maintenance to want those things.

Why do men think a woman only thinks of handbags or shoes?

There are other women who want other things besides those.

All I want is “communication, loyalty, unlimited laughter, understanding, patience, and a heap of precious memories that will last a lifetime.
