Im sure there are more bees then just me who wish their SO would buy them flowers more often..long story short I went to the dr today for the third time this month for more blood tests. (which he knows I hate) and they finally figured out why I’ve been sick, mono. Anyway I was really hoping he would buy me a small bouquet to make me feel better and cheer me up..but no :(. Hea told me several stories of how he would surprise his exes with flowers etc so it’s not like he’s “not that type of guy.” I don’t “expect” them often, big sickness like this, valentines, anniversary, my birthday, that’s it.. Maybe 6 times a year. And it doesn’t have to be roses, a 10 dollar bouquet makes my day. I know this May sound a little selfish, but I buy him his favorite treats etc all the time and even call them my substitute to flowers for him.. It’s not one sided, well right now it is a little. Any other stories share! 🙂

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

I just hinted to him about it because it’s like what do I have to do to “deserve” flowers? (no I didn’t say that part) I just said I was a little disappointed and because he came home a little late tonight I was hoping he might have stopped for flowers. He said “And i was going to get you flowers, but i missed the shit out of you and i wanted to see you as much as i could tonight . I was worried about you all day 🙁 i just needed quality time with my pooky.” Sweet, yes…a cop out? Also sadly yes..knowing him he might do something in a day or two to make it seem like “his idea” but then I’ll feel bad about forcing it :(. Ugh why can’t he be more romantic? We haven’t even been dating a year yet!

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.

Usually now just for special occasions, Valentine’s Day and my birthday.

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.
