Just a bit of a weird question which has probably been answered before. (sorry). I'm going to my girlfriend’s house sometime this week and I was thinking about getting her some flowers (No special reason by the way).
so girls, do you like receiving flowers? And what do you think when you get given them?
Well I always immediately think "what has he done" because in the four years we've been together he's only ever got me flowers when he's done something wrong, or when he thinks I'm annoyed about something.
I would like to have some delivered from time to time, a nice arrangement, as I feel they're different to guilt flowers.
I don't understand what it is about flowers specifically. A few years ago I used to say "what the hell does a person do with flowers, I'd just throw them away". Nowadays I'm a plant enthusiast so I'd keep them.
It's more to do with the gesture than anything else though.
Hell no, they are pointless and die anyway. if they were fake and looked really nice than maybe. Similarly to teddy bears, wth would I do with that? I'd prefer getting gifts I can do something with e.g. books, taking me out to dinner, DVD, new video game, a card, love letter, jewellry, clothes. Something productive or entertaining. I do not find flowers romantic in the slightest. Only if there were rose petals in a bath tub, with candles all round as I'm taking a bath with my lover....

As with most girls....But I don't think I count as a normal girl
So.... most girls don't count as normal?
OP, if it were for a Birthday present or something it'd be a bit of a cop-out present, but still quite a nice gesture. As a totally random gift though, I'd be delighted =P I suppose because it shows you've been thinking about her and wanted to do something to make her happy
I think it'd be lovely as a random little gesture! I wouldn't be impressed if I got flowers every birthday or something though. I'm never expecting presents, but I just think constantly being given flowers is a bit crappy really. As someone above said, it does seem like a bit of a cop-out gift!
