Wow. No one’s ever sent me flowers. I’m not sure how I would react to that. I would probably think that somebody had died. Sorry. But once I called all my relatives and realized everything was fine, I would think it was totally sweet! As long as it came from my girlfriend, or someone I was interested in dating, and not my creepy neighbor who sunbathes in the nude. Dude, everyone can see you. Put on a towel.
I don’t know though…flowers don’t really seem like a guy thing. I hate indulging in gender stereotypes, but, uh, this time the stereotype sort of makes sense. Don’t get me wrong, I like flowers. I like sending them, and I like looking at them. But as a gift or a thoughtful gesture, it might make him feel a bit weird. If he’s into floral arrangements, or gardening, it might be nice. But I wouldn’t send it to his office or anything. (Particularly if it’s a new relationship.)
How about one of those Edible Arrangement bouquets that look like flowers, but are actually fruit dipped in chocolate? Cause I would eat the heck out of one of those things with zero shame. I’d be like Hurley from Lost on the Dharma brand peanut butter (Just kidding, Hurley! Don’t cry! You are the best!) if someone sent me a basket of various fruits arranged like flowers and dipped in rich milk chocolate. Whoever invented that should be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for awesomeness.
If you guys are married or living together, he might appreciate flowers as a way to brighten up your place. Otherwise, maybe make him a nice card or a mix CD. Something homemade and personal. Let him send you flowers.
Am I being too old-school? Do guys get sent flowers these days? Let me know.
