When to bring flowers? 1st, 2nd, ... date?Page 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Never give flowers until AFTER yo uhave had sex.

Use them as a reward, not an incentive



that almost makes sense!!! lol Guys will do anything to get what they want the question is will they do anything once there is no incentive to gain something anymore.
OTB I bet it was not your intention but your line made a lot of sense.

I say before AND after...but then again I LOOOVE flowers... ;-)

Bring one rose first date, seems the respectful thing to do, whilst not going overboard.

Save the two dozen special for the second date if the first turns out ok.

Since I had a boyfriend for many years who had no idea what flowers were, I was flattered the first time someone brought me flowers on a date. However, I would go out on first dates and it seemed so planned that every guy started bringing flowers. It's not that I am ungrateful and it is a nice gesture, but I think it's better and would be appreciated more if you wait a few dates, see how the things are going and then give them to her when she least expects it.

I knew a guy who planned a spectacular first date, limo, 4 star restaurant. After that she expected such royal treatment on every date and he couldn't keep up with that. He aimed so high in the beginning he left himself no where to go.

The nicest first date/meeting gesture I have experienced is being given not flowers but a teddy bear...

I don't give dead flowers. If you want,,,,ya can come on over for a visit and take a stroll into the backyard and view as many as your heart's content. If I give flowers at all, they will be in a pot so that you can enjoy them(and what they will bring) for years to come.

I love fresh flowers any time and I always have 2 vases of fresh flowers, in my house, of which I buy for myself.
A few guys have brought a Rose or 2 for a first time meeting, which I appreciated. I am not really into roses, but I appreciate flowers.
There was one guy, who brough me a big beautiful bouquet of my favorite flower and he didn't know they were my favorite flower . This was a first time meeting, with this guy from POF.
Impressed, I was, that he brought a big beautiful bouquet of flowers for the 1st meeting. On our 3rd date, Valentine's day, he did not bring me any flowers, but it was the 3rd date and I invited him into my house. He ROBBED $200. from me on Valentine's day.
Moral of this true story, a man can be a major thief, and still bring you a big beautiful bouquet of flowers on your 1st meeting. BEWARE, this man is on POF. BEWARE, he does heating and air conditioning for a job, so he could come in anyone's house and steal. I am not allowed to state his name here. He is from Albania and lives in the Philadephia area, with his parents.

The important question to be asked from all this is....


Did he have a 30" waist??
