Now that Valentine’s Day is upon us and plenty of guys exist who need some Valentine’s schooling, it’s necessary to go over the reasons women like flowers.
And guys, don't try to fool yourselves into believing we don’t really like flowers, since they die anyway and all. We like them despite that — trust me. Some of us may drop hints that allude to gifts being no huge deal, but here’s a tip: the hints are an act. We care.
Yes, we do like to be spoiled sometimes and no, the gifts don’t always need to be tangible. But seriously, aside from the I-don’t-need-these-things-to-feel-beautiful women, one cannot deny the role that flowers play in the picture. Here’s why:
1. We like that they’re “pointless.”
Some guys think that giving flowers is pointless because the flowers will eventually die. Well, guess what? That’s actually the part that we love.
Though we love the idea of a forever kind of love, we still like the idea that you can give us something ephemeral and exciting. Even if it seems that your money is being put to waste, it’s nice to know you spent it on something that will yield a guaranteed smile from us.
2. We think they reflect who we are.
Call it shallow, but many women believe that flowers reflect who we are. If you buy obviously cheap flowers, then we may believe you believe we’re cheap. We don’t need to receive flowers daily, so on the special occasions when you take the floral plunge, buy the best, freshest, most fragrant arrangement. It’s a really great way to flatter your lady.
3. We like how they stop time for a moment.
I know it may seem unproductive to you, but many of us like looking at the flowers on our bedside table, on our work desk or in the living room. We can actually spend a minute or two admiring them and smelling their fragrance. Really — they can stop time. Wouldn’t you like to be the reason behind this moment of bliss?
4. We like remembering how we received them.
The presence of your flowers sparks the memory of you when gave them, what words you used and the general loveliness of the moment. Flowers are a surefire way to grab a woman’s attention and make her continuously think of you whenever she glances at the bouquet.
5. We deserve them. Period.
We don’t care how much or little they cost. We don’t care if it you bought them from the mall or went to the fields to gather the freshest roses. It doesn’t matter. The point is that every woman deserves to be delighted by flowers — despite the fact that they die, they make us feel special — which is hopefully, what you want.
