I am having a debate with a friend of mine. A guy brought her a bouquet of roses (not red) on their 2nd date. I say that's too early, and lame. She thought it was nice and sweet.

I already told her if she liked it, then cool, good for her. However, she's turning it into this thing to prove I'm wrong (cause I'm rarely ever wrong ;)).

So... now turning to the Planet.

How early is too early to bring a girl roses?

(There will be no pics of the girl)

I bought my girlfriend a single yellow rose on our third date and she went gaga for it. Every woman is different but roses are a great indicator of how into you she is. If she's ho hum about it then she's not into you just yet but if she thinks its sweet then you're pretty much golden. Is say third date, but you don't have to go full bouquet.

I've been married more than seven years and I've never bought my wife a bouquet of roses. A single yellow rose on the firmer date, and that's basically it.

Of course, my wife doesn't really like flowers that much since they die.... She would rather have something more useful, more "forever".

my wife has told me the same thing before, but her eyes still light up when i bring flowers home for her.

sure, they're impractical, and yes, they die fairly quickly, but i would bet that she would still dig it.

I've bought flowers a few times over the years, just never a full bouquet of roses. Surprisingly, her response has always been, "Oh, thanks. Put 'em in a vase or something."

You must be buying the supermarket flowers. My wife would give me the same ho-hum response for those but really likes the full bouquet.

this, if you have to there is a discount roses place in OP. Wore that place out, before I realized it was a waste of time, but if you have to go half price they die quickly, so does the thought.

You mean the day that they triple the price? If you're only going to do it one day, and one day only, go anniversary. The flower shop won't know when that is so they can't gouge you.

Flowers are for when you are an old married couple. Every girl I bought flowers for went to hell in a hand basket. Its too approval seeking or needy, like taking them to fancy places to eat.

I'm sorry, what?

I've been married for 24 years, and I don't buy flowers.

And, no, I don't buy her a vacuum cleaner as a gift, either.

It's a good idea as a surprise every now and again. For no reason is best. Helps add a spark and some interest to the hohum stage of a relationship.

I don't give a fuck about the girl or the flowers, but you are wrong far more than you know, or want to admit. :thumb:

A bouquet? Second date? Looks and sounds needy. Waaaaaaaaay to early!

On an anniversary, in a serious relationship for a bouquet. Or a birthday, only if you've dated awhile.

I just called my daughter at FSU to ask, and she wanted to know what it cost first. When she heard that, she thought it was retarded, because it was a poor investment as a waste of money that early.

I asked her to ask other girls she lives with.

I always sent flowers after the first date. If, that is, the girl was cool and I liked her. Sometimes roses, sometimes not. I sent them even if I didn't expect to call her back.

I didn't start buying my wife flowers until we were engaged. Been married 17 years, and buy the wife a dozen roses ever couple months or so. Sometimes just out of the blue, because I love her, and she loves getting flowers.

To each his own. Second date is probably a bit soon, unless you work for a florist.

One or two roses is a sweet gesture. An entire bouquet? Awkward.

Nope. The few times I've bought her flowers, they've been nice stuff from a real florist. Why is it hard to believe that some women just aren't into flowers? She honestly responds a lot better when I show up with something she commented about something she wanted out of the blue a couple months earlier. That shows that not only do I listen, but I remember and was thinking about her. Flowers are a no-thought gift and a waste, IMO.

They are a great way to make her see you as a nice guy, then it's game over for you.

Pshaw (sp?).

Sure, there's a chance that the recipient might consider flowers "lame". However, I often didn't know if I was going to call the girl again ... or even be in the same town again. Then again, you never know. A simple, symbolic gift was a way of demonstrating respect and acknowledging that I enjoyed the date.

Plus, if I were to ever call her again, the odds of removing her undergarments with my teeth improved dramatically.

Sometimes in life you gotta roll the dice, he did...and she liked it

Props to him if he really likes her...maybe they are right for each other?

Showing up 15 minutes late with lipstick on my neck has gotten me tail more often than flowers (or any gift THAT early in a relationship) ever have.

Which is, in my opinion, completely backwards. I don't create the rules though, I just play by them.

Yup! Smacks of desperation. But it's okay to be a nice guy, just not too nice.
