flowers on a first date?Page 1 of 1    
I am an old fashioned type of guy. I have given flowers to women on the first date, but I am wondering now if that is such a good idea or not. Most of the women claim that they have never received flowers before. I am not sure if this make me appear unique or needy. Some advice would be much appreciated.

Two problems with giving flowers on a first date.

1) You're probably NOT going to be going to her home to pick her up, so she'll have to carry the flowers around all night while they wilt.

2) An over-the-top expensive arrangement can give the feeling that you expect more from the date than just a date.

Hey, to the women who like to get flowers on the first date, what do you DO with them for the rest of the evening? You have to carry them around all night in the cellophane, right? Find a place at the table or next to you somewhere?

If I had a good solution to this, I might change my answer about receiving flowers on the first date, but I still wouldn't want them to be a huge expensive bouquet of roses or anything.

First MEET - a no-no.
First DATE - it's nice if it's not a dozen roses. Keep it understated.
