I left my hairdresser yesterday and caught the tail end of a conversation he was having with a group of his employees. “Men don’t like getting flowers,” says one of his staff – a female. “Sure they do,” says my hairdresser. “My wife has given me flowers many times over the course of our marriage and I’ve loved it.” No sooner did this man say this than the three women employees’ mouths dropped open in disbelief.
Yes, men DO like to receive flowers – in any form. Whether they find a bouquet delivered to them at work or a single stem tucked under their windshield wiper, men totally appreciate this uncharacteristic romantic gesture.
If you’re a man, have you ever received flowers? How did it make you feel? Were you embarrassed or delighted? If you’re a woman, have you ever given flowers to a man? How did he accept them?
I have a theory that men get a kick out of getting flowers – to either confirm or dispute this theory, let me know what you think!
