    right there's this girl who i really like and is on my course, however i hardly see her due to her staying somewhere else and i dont particularly know her that well, but we do still chat around lectures etc. i wanted to send her some flowers for valentines day (i wouldnt say its from me) but my friend thinks it'd just freak her out if she found out it was from me and if she directly asked me (cos iv kinda made it obvious i like her ) i was thinking id just tell her the truth.

    so presuming the likely hood is she doesnt fancy me, would she not speak to me again if i sent them and think that i was stalking her or whatever??

    How about just 1 rose?

    what something like this: http://www.netflora.co.uk/val06roseorchidvase.shtml

    also if she found out it was me and didnt fancy me, do you think she'd not speak to me again. Im also gona make the message in the card quite light-hearted.

    There's no harm at all in doing that! The worst thing that would happen is she asks you, you tell her and she says she doesn't feel the same. Sending someone flowers on Valentine's day is flattering. It's a day you're allowed to. Plus it'll make her the centre of attention as every other girls feels jealous that they don't have a secret admirer who likes them.

    It's romantic and it'll make her smile. However I would advise doing it anonymously, even if you're going to tell her.

    I have a Valentine's day habit, because I'm possibly the only person who *loves* tje idea of Valentine's. Every time I've ever done anything on Valentine's day like that it's had a good reaction, either I've dated them or (more likely ) they've turned into good friends. Sending someone flowers is one of the most romantic ways to tell someone you like them. It's hardly a bad thing. And on Valentine's day, it's perfectly allowed

    don't do the whole bouquet - that's only for stuff like when you win wimbledon or something.

    just stick to a single rose. they are relatively pricey for that (i think like 18.50 or so), but then again, L'OREAL - because she's worth it.

    Yeah just get her a small bunch of flowers, nothing big - I'd still do it though! That's so sweet, I've love it if someone (apart from another girl or mate, lol) did that for me and she's not gonna think bad of it, so you've nothing to lose IMO.

    Good luck!

    Naw... It'd be cool. I'd actually want her to find out if I was in your position... you never know.

    thanks for saying that, its reassured me it'd be ok, plus coming from a oxbridge economist it must be credible! And to One-Prophecy i do kinda want her to ask me, otherwise if she never did they'd be no point but at the same time am scared about how'll see react.

    this looks ok tho www.interflora.co.uk/catalog/product.xml?product_id=2039600;c ategory_id=1000333;pcid1=;pcid2= and price really isnt a issue when uv found the first person in 19 yrs who you truely like.

    :p: I would have thought going to Oxford makes me supremely unqualified to make any comments about matters relating to relationships. We do have the least sex in the country you know

    Nice The key to a good valentine's present is the personal part - the message. It just needs to be a sentance that makes her feel like shes admired, but not obsessed over. Ie. don't use the word love, you don't know her well enough yet. I know what I would (maybe will ) put, but it has to be personal.

    And when it comes to telling her, you have to be a little coy. Walking over and saying "they were from me" is neither particularly romantic, nor asking a question. Walking over and saying something that relates to the message with the flowers implies they're from you, and that you meant what you said. Don't make her ask you, but do send them anonymously. And do ask her out, even after sending her flowers and telling her you like her, she's a women, don't expect her to make a move.

    If it all goes wonderfully, it's a great story to tell people when the ask the "how did you meet" question

    if you wanna tell her that you fancy her, send her a single rose.
    if you wanna tell her that you wanna be closer friends or something, send her a yellow carnation.
    and all that jazzz...lol

    Definitely go for it. After all, you don't really have much to lose. If she says no, then that's that, if she says yes.. that'll be awesome. And I agree with going for the single rose, much more romantic than a whole bunch. Good luck!

    yeh thats what i thought about the message, but i havent got a clue what to say, something funny or serious, do u have any ideas?

    its also gona take some courage to ask her out, but if she asks if i sent them, would it not be ok to just say something like "...i do really like and think ur the most amazing person iv ever met, but realise you probably wont feel the same, and would be glad to just be friends with you....".

    hmmmm... interesting situation... would love a bunch of flowers myself this valentines day but thats about as likely as me winning the lottery!!! Anyways if I was writting the message I'd be totally cheesy about it like a roses are red poem or something coz that it could seem a joke and humour is the best way of defence from hurt right? but if i was recieveing I'd want something really prolific like a quote or something that is like personal to me maybe
