    @KoiKove:  Awww. I think you need to start buying yourself flowers when you know he won’t be buying any. It will make your house feel nicer (well it does for me) AND he’ll literally see the flowers you love in person–maybe easier for him to remember.

    I hate Lillies, too, but I said suck it up. Darling Husband bought me some a few months ago, and he was amused by how I moved them around the house.

    I’d move them from the kitchen to the bathroom when I’d eat because the smell makes me gag if I’m eating, and sometimes they would wind up on his computer desk (I wonder how THAT happened… CERTAINLY wasn’t me… 😉 Then they’d go back to the kitchen when I’m showering or getting ready in the morning.

    At one point he said, “You know, these smell sweet and good but kind of disgusting at the same time.” Hahahahah omg. I was like eureka, “Exactly!!!” I doubt he’ll buy them for me again, but if he does, I shall move them around the house. 🙂

    Any chance you have a cat?  If so, he needs to cut it out with the lilies–they’re toxic to cats.  If not, I’m afraid you’ll have to suck it up or risk hurting his feelings and never getting flowers again.

    @thehoneybear:  LOL!! Maybe you can have him smell them? Or see what a mess they make!

    Personally, I wouldn’t say anything. I guess my Fiance kind of already knows my taste in flowers, though. If you’re truly upset that he’s spending so much money on something that you don’t like, why don’t you suggest that when he thinks about getting you flowers, why doesn’t he set the money aside for the two of you to go on a mini vacation, a weekend away or something?

    Honestly, I would suck it up. But, that’s because my Fiance NEVER gets me flowers so he could have me a bouquet of dandelions and grass and I would be happy. However, if I were in your situation, I would say something about the pollen messing with your allergies.
