Alright, I'm looking for some opinions from the male portion of our JWD audience.
I'm in a long-distance relationship, like I've said here a million times before, so doing special things for my guy is kinda hard. Not only is it long-distance, it's international, too. We're 3500 miles apart and I'm a starving student, so I can't just swing by for a visit to do something special for him on the fly.
Last semester, I sent him a bunch of flowers in his favourite colour, a special "I miss you" bouquet from a local florist that I found online. Everything went perfectly, the florist delivered same-day, the price wasn't too horrible and the bouquet turned out nice, but I had a hard time reading my guy's reaction to it. Granted, I had the flowers sent on a day when he was in bed because he had to work that night, but that was the only time I knew he'd be around for sure - I didn't want the delivery guy to show up when he wasn't and then have to call him and let the cat out of the bag, it was supposed to be a surprise for him.
And it was, he was surprised, but I don't know if it was a good "surprise" or not. Sure, he thanked me for them and all of that, and he told his parents about it (his mom was very impressed, by the way), then he proceeded to tell me about how the guys at work thought it was really weird that his girlfriend has sent him some flowers.
I'm not the only nutcase that gives her guy flowers on occasion - one of my roommates has her long-distance boyfriend visiting her this week and she showed up at the airport to pick him up with a big bouquet of flowers, and I think he was happy about it.
I want to send him flowers again this semester, just because I miss him... and his apartment could really use some colour. I've found the perfect bouquet to send him, nothing too frilly and girly - it's just a clear vase with 10 purple tulips (purple is his favourite colour), no ribbons or bows or anything like that. Just a plain vase with some tulips, that's all.
So, gentlemen of JWD, how would you feel about your girlfriend/wife giving you flowers?? Would you think that it's too girly for you?? Would you feel like that giving flowers was your job, not hers?? What do you think of girls sending flowers to guys??
I remember reading once that a lot of guys would really appreciate having their girlfriends/wives send them flowers, but I don't know how accurate that is.
So guys, whadda ya think??
