    I told my Fiance once near the begining of our relationship that I think cut flowers are the worst gift ever, so never, lol. Well he did once, but it was before that, and it was just a few cool-looking stems from a street vendor who walked through our resteraunt.

    He would if I liked receiving them as gifts, but I don’t. I love flowers, but I would rather have a rose plant to grow in the garden. Bouquets don’t live very long.

    My Fiance brings me lovely bouquets on special days like birthdays and anniversaries and on milestone days when I’ve done something super awesome, lol, plus on days when I feel down (which is not often) and the flowers usually come with a block of chocolate or a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.

    Never, but not because he doesn’t think about it or something. I feel really bad about getting flowers. After a few days they start to die and I get really sad.

    Fiance gets me good chocolate instead 🙂

    @S_loves_C:  I hate flowers and I end up yelling at him when he buys them. You would think that would cause me to vote “never” but he doesn’t listen very well. I still get them at least once per quarter. Such a waste. They just die! Le sigh.

    I’m not at all into flowers as a gift. Don’t get me wrong, they’re beautiful! I love looking at them when I pass by a display at the store. But they just always seem to die so quickly. Or I’m never home enough to enjoy them. It’s a lovely thought, but I’d rather my SO spend the time and energy elsewhere. (I also don’t endorse celebrating Valentine’s Day or dating anniversaries. And I don’t care for celebrating my own birthday. He should consider himself lucky!)

    @S_loves_C:  my dh never buys me flowers.  that’s because i never want them.  he bought me some when we first started dating but i told him it wasn’t necessary.  if we see some nice flowers when we are out, he always asks me if i want them, i say no.

    I hate flowers for a few reasons: I’m allergic to them (they clog up my sinuses and if I touch them I get a rash), they are expensive, and I think they are an unoriginal way to show your love for somebody – EVERYBODY gives flowers. It’s wayyyy overdone, in my opinion.

    FH has given me maybe 5 bouquets of flowers in the 4 years we have been together. He prefers to give me other gifts that I will enjoy more or actually use.
