Okay ladies, I'd like to ask you to explain to me the concept and etiquette of giving flowers to women, because I haven't ever got it really figured out on my own. I've never been a flower giver, I think the only time I ever did was for the high school prom, and that was in the late 80s. I know women like flowers, but when is the right time and occassion to do it? I think showing up with flowers on a first date is kinda early, I think that shows the guy is trying too hard. Plus if you're meeting her somewhere instead of picking her up at her place, she'd have to carry it around all evening. Impractical. Then again, if you brought her one at home, she'd have a minute or 2 to see it then it's time to go out and leave it at home. I can see bringing flowers now and then once you've been going out with someone for a month or more, especially if you're going to spend an evening or weekend at her place, but doing it earlier in a relationship seems weird to me. Can anyone help me on this?
