    I know what you mean, I love it when my husband does nice things for me!  Usually it’s something like cooking for me or bringing me a pastry or something.  I have terrible allergies so bringing me flowers wouldn’t quite be as nice as it sounds… Which is actually why I voted “never”–he’s never gotten me flowers, but out of kindness to my senses lol… But yeah, when I’m having a down day, all I want him to do sometimes is bring me a cookie.

    I hope you feel better soon–here’s to hoping for flowers in the near future!

    On Vday, Bday, and anniversary I get flowers.

    Otherwise, I buy my own flowers so I never get upset when he doesn’t lol

    Sometimes for Valentines or for a special performance I’m doing, but that’s about it.

    I voted 1-3 times a year, but we have been together for four years and he has bought me flowers exactly three times.  It’s just not something that occurs to him.

    He bought me some once around a week after I pointed out that we had been together 2/2.5 years and he had never bought me flowers; once like a year later when he was a total asshole and trying to make up for it, and then yesterday because he was so freakin’ happy that I gave him a BJ (sorry if TMI lol).  Boys are weird :-p

    He has bought me flowers occasionally but not very often. I’m not a huge flower fan so it doesn’t bother me.

    I actually do not like flowers. He has bought them in the past but would get a better reaction if he bought me a chocolate bar. 

    I do understand where you are coming from. I would love if my SO reaches and hold my hands in odd, secret situations. That would let me know that I’m on his mind or something.

    I usually get flowers for our anniversary and Valentines day. I love flowers, especially roses 🙂 I would love to get them more often.

    I get flowers every other month about, sometimes every month even, but I think a good part of why is because my grandmother owns a flower shop so the whole thing idea of flowers is never “out of sight, out of mind”. They also give him a discount every so often so I’m sure he likes that! They vary in size, sometimes it’s a single rose and others it’s a huge arrangement that I can barely carry, but they all mean so much to me.
