Well this is the second time I am writing on this subject as the first article that was written and met an overwhelmingly positive response. Ka-billions of folks read it. So without trying to rewrite the same article over again, I wanted to offer up a different perspective.
GUYS – your interest in a woman should be shown on many different levels. Women notice little things and they will catch not only your little mistakes but also the little things that you do right. So make your flower purchases part of what you do right. Blow her away with the unexpected!
Here are some ideas to think about (I called them “rules” and then changed to “ideas” because there really are no “rules”):
Don’t send flowers only on the typical flower holidays (birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s, etc.). If you limit your flower sending to just those types of days, you look predictable. You appear as though you only send flowers because you could not figure out what else to do. I am not saying NOT to send flowers on those occasions, but mix it up. “Just because” is the BEST reason to send flowers of all. If you do not have the budget to send flowers on the special days and on the non-special ones, then skip the birthday (do something else) and send flowers on one beautiful August morning with a note that says “I love you” or “Cannot stop thinking of you”! It will mean a lot more because it is so unexpected and who does not want to be surprised?
Secondly, FORGET the dozen roses! Again, roses make you look predictable (“ah just send her a dozen roses, all women love roses”… yada, yada). Be a flower connoisseur (or at least look like one). What is her favorite color? Purple? Then make her a bouquet of “everything purple” and so on. Spend time with your florist in person or on the phone. If your florist is unwilling to educate you and won’t spend time with you to share his love of flowers, then find a different florist. Certainly if you come to Starbright (www.starflor.com) we would love to share our passion with you and you will walk away with a Bachelor’s in Romance! Learn the names of flowers, learn how long they last, what is in season, and so on.
You want to keep things interesting. Imagine that if you send her peonies or hydrangea she will for the rest of her life remember only you when she sees this flower. If you send roses (I hate to say this) but how many men do you think will come to mind? Do you stand a chance of standing out? Send interesting and unusual flowers! There are enough varieties and colors for you to select from that you will never have to send the same flowers twice even if you send flowers ever week for an entire year. Invest a little bit of time and your education will more than pay off.
Lastly, all these e-romance websites can claim all they want about having the best track record for bringing people together, making the most compatible matches and so on… While I cannot statistically prove this, I will claim that the following is true:
Send flowers to someone you love and the scent of the flowers will remind them of you for a very long time. Flowers do keep romances alive, they make men sensitive and keep couples in love. Make flowers your secret weapon and the special person in your life will be there forever.
