From another blog...

Today, CuteAZguy27 has a post asking we ladies how we feel about men bringing us flowers... I loved it, and responded to him, but would love to get y'all's take on it as well, plus a little spin... so here we go...

Ladies: Do you like to receive flowers from men? What kind? On what occasions? When are flowers special and when are they unappreciated and/or too much?

Men: Do you like to buy flowers for women? What kind? On what occasions? Do you like to receive flowers? And if so, should this be something done in private? How would you react if a lady sent flowers to you at work?

For me, I love flowers, but they mean more to me when they're given "for no reason." No special day, no big event, just flowers because he thought of me. I'mno big fan of roses, actually, though I like them and appreciate the spirit in which they are given. No, there is one kind of flower (and one color in particular) that is quite special to me. But I won't tell... that would be giving it away!

Okay... let me try... Ladies and flowers

I'm not a great 'flowers' guy, I prefer to offer something more permanent, lasting. If I do give flowers I prefer to hand them over in a pot.

Elysia2005: I LOVE To give flowers .. if I am sure she likes them. I dated a girl a few years ago and I wante dto give her flowers on our first date. I spoke to her GF and she told me which kind she liked so I rolled to the flower shop and bought a bouquet. When she picked me up her mouth just dropped when I asked her to come into the kitchen where I gave them to her. Needless to say she was speechless over what I did for her (of course she kissed me as well!) and the date went well. Sadly things didn't work for us for one reason or another but I will NEVER forget how her face lit up.

What kind were they? God, I wish I could remember!

Do I like flowers? Sure! My ex GF of almost three years sent me flowers for my borthday and Valentine's Day. She sent me roses both times. Needless to say each time they arrived my Dad or sister handled the flowers and I blushed when I saw them. I was very touched and talked to her the same day to thank her for the lovely flowers.

One of the kindest and sweetest things that ever happened to me!

Sometimes flowers are expected, and I send them. But I agree that giving flowers when they are not expected is truly the way to go...

...It is positively worth the effort when trying to show someone how much you care.

I dunno. FLowers I usually reserve for something beyond just friends. I'll buy you dinner I'll be there for you and basically take care of you as friend. Hell I take better care of my friends than most guys take care of their gfs.

I only think twice have I gotten flowers. Once was just cause and she hated them... a dozen dark red roses, beautiful and she hated them because she ... never mind. The other liked them as they were a get well gift, but wished next time I got her plants instead so they wouldn't die.
