I've been knowen to bring a man a flower on the first date. Why should women be the only one who enjoys this?
And yes it usally the same thing.. "jeezes this has never happened to me before".

I don't know anymore...

Some women like them, and some women don't - and they don't wear signs telling you which side they are on.

Grrrrrrrrrr.................

I used to do it all the time, until I read some posts here about women that said they didn't like it - which frankly surprised me.

The first time I got a woman flowers, she slapped me. Accused me of trying to "buy her" with "materialistic shit" ... not sure how to finish that ....

(Picking myself up off the floor from shock here....AHEM)

Would a man actually do that?

I think it is a very sweet gesture.

My last relationship, he was not even remotely romantic, affectionate, or thoughtful (unless he was thinking of himself), the TWO times he actually did buy me beautiful Roses (the most gorgeous bouquets I had ever seen) his mean side came through the next day and he THREW them away, just to hurt my feelers :(

So much for chivalry.

I received 2 dozen amazing different coloured roses (delivered) , before meeting him. It absolutely blew me away... but, I had to cancel our date.

Flowers are cool on a first date, second date and always. I would rather have them now, instead of when I am dead.

Although I think that is such a sweet thought, I think a nice bouquet for about the same price and they usually last forever. Roses are so over rated.

I can relate to that CarolinaNoelle.. I would feel like a used car salesman bringing flowers or a gift on a first date... Sort of puts the mark, er, I mean, date on the spot...

However, I just had a first date this weekend, and after the date I ordered a dozen red roses to be sent to her work Monday... It doesn't put her on the spot, plus I figure she'll enjoy receiving them in front of her friends/co-workers... Maybe coming on too strong? I do want her to know that I enjoyed the date and really like her...

Hmmmmmmmmmm...gotta think about this a moment. Ya know, being ex-military, we're always taught to 'think outside the box'...so here goes:

First date...buy her a flower shop, a chocolate candy store, a car dealership, a housing development and a clothing boutique. That way, you've all the bases covered, she goes nutszoid on ya...with the choices endless.

hit by women you bought flowers for? I hope you ran as fast as she hit you. most women love flowers and to get them on the first date shows such good jester and manners.

Nice but a bit corny....

The first date...is more like a meeting. (to sniff each other out...uh...I mean to check each other out) Not very romantic in my opinion.

On the next one (if it happens) maybe..then it would be lovely.

Korny and cheesy. BUT... it depends on how it's done. If you are picking her up at her house or just going to her house, you can give it to her then. But if you are meeting her for coffee or for dinner, she probably isn't going to want to have to have those flowers with her for the whole date, but who knows. At least if you meet her at her crib, she can place them on the table before you two go out somewhere.

Most definitely something I would appreciate, it's very rare to come by.

Ok... a single flower for the first date. I'll have to keep that in my mental rolodex

Call me weird.... but a single red rose reminds me of 2 things...
a plastic bucket outside of the corner store where they sell them for a buck... and those slimy guys that wander the bars trying to sell single roses to drunk men, so they can try to lure a woman back to their place. Its kind of tacky.

To me... good conversation and picking up the tab at dinner is more than enough.

If I have a great date with someone, receiving flowers after, as a gift for an enjoyable evening, is more appropriate and quite flattering.

NO WAY.

I think it's a bad move...In my opinion.... I would rather wait to get them, it freaks me out and I don't like it. Maybe I am weird, but I had a guy bring me a dozen red roses on a first date-for some reason I didn't like it..I really didn't..I thought it was too much too soon. I had to carry them around all night and it was a royal pain in the ass. Not to mention at dinner he tried to give me an Egyptian golden eye charm.. (I happen to mention in passing that I always liked ancient cultures.) But this wasn't an online meeting-I had met him a few months before and the flowers still threw me off.

No to the flowers-call me a whatever-but I think it's a weird move. :/ Just how I feel though...it puts too much pressure on the girl for reciprocation. It was a nice gesture, but I think that should be reserved for someone u really like..and if you're going out on a first date-you can't know these things.

It is a nice idea, although if we're meeting up somewhere and going to more than one place, it would be a little awkward to carry it around.

A dozen roses on a first date = NO. That's TOO awkward.

One rose or a bunch of roses or even great big bunches of whatever happens to be on display in the cemetery as I pass through it on the way to the date. Value is of no consequence......

Flowers of a first date??? I wouldn't do that... What they really want is a nice cold sholder the first date. Nothing says 'you look stunning' like the reflection of herself off the bald spot on the back of your head as you turn to another lady at the bar, or gawk at the waitress that walks by.
haha... no, it's a sweet thought but I think you may have to analyze the person a little bit and maybe bring it to the table on the second date. Some may find it a little over the top.
