I Love Getting Flowers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,226 People

    Years ago I landed a job

    as a floral assistant for a flower shop. It was great! Seeing the different flowers, going with the owner to San Francisco at 3am to haggle with ship owners for first choice of flowers, working events. I eventually rose the ranks to being a florist myself by the time I was 18...

    Romantic thinking I guess.

    .. I've never had a guy surprise me at work with flowers. Are there men out there that think of doing this? Or is it just movie material?

    I love it when someone sends me flowers on

    special occasions. My language of love is receiving gifts because I grew up with nothing and I had never experienced receiving flowers and gifts since then. So, when I receive or get flowers, I'm happiest. Small joy but means a lot to a poor soul. โค๏ธ

    My boyfriend always slyly picks off a flower

    wherever he finds one and gives it to me. I never even see him pick it up. they're always so pretty. Even more charming is the boyish expression on his face when he presents it. I love him.

    Finally Got Flowers

    I love flowers and actually got them for the first time this week, only took about three decades. A friend gave me flowers just because I was having a bad day. My heart melted a little (and I have a relatively icy heart). Of course this friend has also professed his love...

    I think that every woman enjoys getting flowers

    but I think I appreciate them even more if they happen to be my favorite. To know what kind you would have had to be paying attention to conversations.

    I don't mind the generic roses,

    but it's nice for someone to actually take the time to know what kind of flowers you like. I personally love hydrangeas and peonies. Just sayin' :D

    Ungrateful...

    My sister-in-law was indignant when her husband bought her some flowers that she apparently didn't like. She made a point to let him know immediately after receiving them. Seriously?! I don't care if they were poison ivy. It was a gift! Just say thank you, shut the hell up and...

    Especially when you receive them

    for no reason. But I don't really like roses, daisies or carnations. How about light purple and cream tulips? Or a fragrant gardenia plant? Or a white orchid (that I can't kill)? Or some blue and purple hydrangeas? Sometimes I will buy some flowers at trader joes just because...

    I grew up in a florist,

    so the flowers are not the beauty to me. The most beautiful thing about the gift is the intentions behind the flowers.

    Anything But Red Roses

    I've only gotten flowers a counted number of times from the ex and boyfriends, but I LOVE to receive flowers and I'm especially fond of carnations because they last long, they come in lots of colors, and they smell good. I don't see them as filler flowers at all. I'm not a...
