Flowers??

The guy I have been seeing (he has been a friend for a couple of years while we were both in bad relationships, and in the last 5-6 months we have become more). This guy is really important to me.

He is having hernia surgery Wednesday and will be home out of work for 2 weeks (we work for the same company and the last couple of weeks have been rough for him, including an argument with the owner.) So I kinda wanted to do something to make him feel special and amybe brighten his day. So I was thinking of sending him (to his house on thursday) a vase of flowers (ftd) with a get well soon ballon. What do guys feel about getting flowers? (ftd thinks it is great idea) Has anyone done it and what was your guys reaction? I can't decide whether to do it or not any and all input is appreciated.

Title: I LOVE flowers...

I LOVE flowers, and even if he doesn't, what difference will it make? He certainly will appreciate that you were thinking about him, and the gesture itself.

You're over analyzing dear. Send the flowers...they will be a hit, no matter what.

I have only given flowers to a man unprompted once... but I definitely recall they were a hit. When ill, I think most people, regardless of gender, appreciate a gesture that sends warm thoughts and shows they are being thought of.

If the flowers scare you a bit, maybe a bouquet of balloons or a basket of his favorite treats and a CD will do. But, I like the flowers. :o)

Hope his recovery is speedy-

Okay thats what I needed to hear and oh yes do I over analyze. I like to blame it on the fact that work is slow so I have all day to sit and think LOL That is when I am not on Ebay buying something I don't need LOL. And where is the 10 step program for ebay addicts!!!

A bit late to the game here...

I agree. Go with flowers. I've had them sent to me twice in my life. Both times, I was really touched by the gesture, regardless if I liked the flowers or not.

I think flowers are just fine. Flowers and beer is even better. Flowers, beer, and bratwursts is even better than that. Flowers, beer, bratwursts, and porn...well, you just can't get any better than that.

okay, I was playing...flowers are great. They are quite unexpected for a guy to receive them from a girl...which makes it nice.
