Ladies, What do Flowers Mean To You?

I am the type of person who likes to pick at people’s brains. It’s a way for me to learn about things in the world, get to know different cultures, and helps me to understand humans better.

With that kind of curiosity in mind, I posted a question onto my facebook on November 16th, 2016:

Here are a few of the responses I received on that post:

This was one of the first comments given and I like the simplicity of it. I think this goes with a popular saying that women have when they feel appreciated: “It’s the little things.”

It can’t be more straight forward than that, right? Could there ever be a bad day to receive flowers from someone who loves you?

I have not heard of someone giving their significant other flowers once of every month. But I don’t think that is far fetch. I guess it depends on the two who are in the relationship. Getting a flower once a month may be excessive for a lady who does not get perked up by flowers. Maybe she is more like this friend of mine:

What’s better than a gift that says “I get you”? From my eyes, flowers seem to do the job pretty well, but that is not always the case.Fishing rods, tackle, and the presence of your loved one may be the better pick.

Now, I know that asking that question may make me look like I don’t have common sense, but I do. I know that for most ladies, they feel appreciated, happy, and valued, but I figured that actually asking them did a few things:

Reminds them that not all men are lazy-minded fools who don’t care to be romantic.


For the men who aren’t doing so well in the department of romance, they might be able to take a hint or two with looking at the comments, all 40+ of them.

Before I forget to mention it , I must say that needed to read these responses for myself as well! I wasn’t clueless about being romantic and showing care to someone I love, but I think it is a good thing for people to learn why important things are worth doing. Besides, a man should never assume that he knows all that there needs to be known on pleasing a woman, so a question like this(even if the answer could be common sense) is worth asking. I hope to never think like that. I am single now, but when I marry I hope to seek out different ways to show my appreciation to my lady.

So ladies, tell me. When you receive(d) flowers from someone you are in a relationship, how do you typically feel? What would be one piece of advice that you’ve wished men knew when it comes to presenting flowers to a lady?

  1. It’s special if they take the time to get to know her first. Ask her, “What are some of your favorite flowers?”, then wait for the right time to send them. The gentleman could spend a small fortune on a dozen roses and she may not even like roses. Stop and pick a handful of wildflowers in season on the way to her house and hand them to her at the door. That’ll do it. 🙂
