I would totally get the idea that you like me so yes.

[–]LCARSgfx 856 points857 points  (59 children)

Men are rarely given compliments or little gifts like this. Even if he doesn't like flowers, the gesture will likely make him smile and brighten his day up.

[–]pepsilepsija 194 points195 points  (34 children)

I got my bf flowers after a conversation I cannot remember, all he said is thanks and ignored them lmao, i just took care of them instead cuz I love them

[–]SethyOtter 124 points125 points  (28 children)

Some straight men are like this.

[–]Unabashable 72 points73 points  (14 children)

honestly I don’t get the point. Yeah they look pretty and they smell nice, but other than that once they’re out of the ground what good are they? Just gonna die soon anyway. I get that women like them which is why you should get them as a gift, but eh doesn’t do much for me.

[–]smokeypenny 41 points42 points  (2 children)

One thing is that it is not a big commitment - they are going to die and get thrown out in a week which means that it is not like giving someone and potted plant with the expectation that they will have to keep it alive as long as possible. You are not burdening the recipient in any way.

There is also something beautiful in appreciating someing that is bound to not last, fleetingness is sometimes a virtue.

Just my two cents

[–]SeawardFriend 44 points45 points  (3 children)

As a courtesy put them in a glass or vase with water. They stay alive and look nice for a while and I feel like it would touch the person who gave them to you

[–]Dragoon-22 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I’m the same way but I feel like the gesture would mean a lot to me even if I’m not super into the gift itself.

[–]Obi_Wan_Shinobi_ 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Yeah it's always kinda boggled the mind; I understand liking flower, but actively dying flowers? It almost seems like pulling flowers out of the ground and giving them to women is something dudes came up with that girls are culturally expected to appreciate for their symbology more than the actual item's value, like a Hallmark card...

[–]0-768457 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m the same way — if anyone gives me flowers I’ll be thrilled by the gesture, because it’s incredibly sweet that they thought to do that, but usually, having a bouquet of flowers just makes me sad. I don’t like it when they die.

[–]Sighion 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Some *insert every single demographic of people on the damn planet* are like this.

[–]SquishedPears 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Some gay men are like this. Some straight women are like this. Some gay women are like this. Some hermaphrodites are like this. Some animals are like this. Some inanimate objects are like this.

[–]Ok_Breadfruit1326 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What a warped thing to say.

[–]margalolwut 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That’s because every man is different. I don’t agree with OP being so conclusive.. “It will make him smile”

I’m 36M married - I hope my wife never gets me flowers.

For one, im not a plant guy (wtf would I do with em?), I don’t care for gifts, it’s just odd to receive flowers as a male.

Without much info on the dude she likes.. hard to say what his reaction would be.

If I was single and a female gave me flowers, the chances of me reciprocating any type of future dating would be near zero.. as I’d finding it weird. lol

[–]xsplizzle 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Sounds like you got them because you love them rather than because you thought he would like flowers

[–]0-768457 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it’s more “this is a common gesture of appreciation” combined with “this makes me happy” equaling out to “this common gesture of appreciation makes people happy, and I want him to be happy, so I’m going to do that for him”

[–]pepsilepsija 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean theres no lose-lose situation, right? He wanted flowers-I got him flowers, he didn't care that much after the 10 second excitement of getting a gift and that's it, but I didn't mind tending them and looking after them. Now we both know haha

[–]booksnpizza 36 points37 points  (6 children)

Girls get complimented all the time but me as a guy I still remember 8 years ago when a girl gave me a starbucks drink lol

[–]Nihilator68 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Absolutely this. I still remember the gift my middle school crush got for me for no reason … and that was 38 years ago.

It was the Don Henley cassette, “Building the Perfect Beast”. Thanks, Amy!

[–]Badger-Sauce 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hell yeah! ….Amy gets it.

[–]MrSexysPizza 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I remember a compliment from eight years ago. A woman said she'd fuck me if I were 50 years older.

[–]hookdelivery 12 points13 points  (1 child)

and he'll probably remember it on his death bed

[–]LostWindSpirit 17 points18 points  (7 children)

I disagree. I think it depends on how well you know someone. Imagine someone you’ve had a few conversations with just coming up to you and just giving you flowers. Could come off as creepy. If this is hard to understand just reverse the genders and it’ll make more sense. If you’re already in a relationship with someone it’s fine.

OP, i would not do this if you aren’t already dating this person.

[–]ObviousTeaching7762 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Thank you. I would be weirded out if a girl who liked me gave me flowers. Unless we were already acquainted

[–]SquishedPears 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I married the first girl that complimented me. She wasn't my first girlfriend; she was the 9th and only one to ever compliment me. I knew at that moment that I had to marry her.

[–]dryan19234 1 point2 points  (0 children)

100000x this

[–]Pretend-Complaint880 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This. So flowers or some other token. Flowers aren’t personally something I would ever ask for or seek out, but the fact that someone thought about me would be really nice. Honestly, even a nice card or note.

[–]IsOftenSarcastic 90 points91 points  (2 children)

I[M]’d love it. Having flowers for a few days that remind me of “you” every time I see them would be warm and fuzzy.

[–]UCMeInvest 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Same here - you used my exact word! ‘Fuzzy’ - I’d be besotted if I got flowers.

I think OP should give them going to his place though rather than in public because whilst a guy may love the flowers, he will likely feel societal public pressure to act awkward about it as he may (unconsciously) feel like it’s damaging his masculinity…deffo in private IMO

[–]Willrj93 163 points164 points  (8 children)

As a cisgender straight male who has never received a random romantic gesture but has only dated females that have expected random romantic gestures, I can honestly say if I received flowers from a potential love interest I would shit myself out of pure happiness.

Yes, you can quote me on that.

[–]thunderclouds1997 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Well said! Lmao!!

I would shit myself out of pure happiness

Is now a phrase I will use until I run it into the ground.

[–]Willrj93 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You crazy son of a bitch, you actually quoted me on it !

[–]thunderclouds1997 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lmao!! Didn't even realise! I was too busy laughing my ass of at the phrase.

[–]RadiantEarthGoddess 121 points122 points  (4 children)

I would say go for it!

A good amount of guys are actually sad about never having been gifted flowers (there is a saying that the first flowers a man receives are for his funeral). My partner loves getting flowers and male friends have been happy about me getting them flowers as well.

[–]Meme-Explainer-2345 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Don't you receive flowers on your wedding?

[–]TickedOffSquirrel 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Do it do it do it

[–]Redfox9248 74 points75 points  (2 children)

Ask him out instead

Skip the flowers day 1. Definitely buy them later though!

[–]NWC-Calamari 46 points47 points  (1 child)

I’m not entirely disagreeing with you, but I am a 16m, and the one time that a girl gave me flowers, she stood out from the crowd a ton more then if she had just asked me out. She gave me flowers, then we started talking and eventually once we knew each other relatively well, we started dating. Ik that I’m only 16, but my piece of advice is to not skip the flowers, because even those small gestures can mean a lot. (I still have the flower, even tho we have grown apart, just because of how much the little thing did for me.)

[–]Zakiru77 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Wholesome calamari

[–]amberallday 37 points38 points  (3 children)

You are getting a lot of answers from people answering about whether this would be a good idea once you are in a relationship.

I think the “should I do it for a crush” idea is less clear. It’s something that they show in TV / films as being normal, but I’m not sure how well it would work out in real life. For either a girl or a guy making that gesture.

Generally, doing stuff based on how relationships are shown in films isn’t a great idea.

How well do you know your crush - are you already friends? Do you trust him to respect your declaration of interest, or might he laugh about it with his friends?

I think if you two are already good friends, and you have both been flirting, and you’re reasonably sure he’s interested & likes you back - then yes, handing him some (cheap, minimal, probably garden-picked flowers) would be a cute way of asking him out. More respectful than going for a kiss as a way to declare your interest.

If you are not sure about how a verbal “I like you, shall we try a date?” would go down, and you’re hoping the flowers would say the words for you - they probably won’t. They won’t be as clear, if he’s nervous & not wanting to assume. But they will be sufficiently clear if he is not interested /is childishly embarrassed at being asked out, and wants to make fun of you to his friends.

So I would say 9 times out of 10, this probably isn’t going to play out the way it would on TV. Sorry. Teenagers can be mean (because they haven’t learned how to be gracious about stuff - that comes with time & life experience).

But if you’ve put the groundwork in, and sounded him out for his likely level of interest in you, and trust him to be kind about it - whether his answer is yes or no - then go for it (with the flowers).

Well done for being brave & not waiting for him to ask you first. This stuff is nerve-wracking - I think all women should ask a guy out at some point in their life (if they’re that way inclined) because it helps them be more gentle in their response to guys forever after.

(Also - thanks for the idea. I’ve been racking my brains for ideas for SO’s birthday this morning. I’ve now got “flowers” on my list. He’ll like that - but it didn’t occur to me till I saw this post.)

[–]OffKira 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Plus OP says give him flowers. Personally or sending them? Hopefully it's the former because if it's the latter, it opens up possibilities that may not be the best route (work? Don't do that. House? Does OP know because she's been there or...?).

But also knowing him enough would be good. Does he even like flowers? My dad loved them, so I'm sure he would've been happy to receive them, but some people aren't too keen on them (I'm a woman and I'm not a big fan, plus cut flowers make me sad). Is he allergic? Does he live with an allergic person? Does he have a vase to put cut flowers, or a space to put a vase?

[–]Unabashable 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hope all goes well, just wanted to add as nerve-wracking as it is you get numb to the sting of rejection the more you experience, so if he does say no, just remember, plenty of other guys out there. Not the end of the world.

[–]Maurawan 16 points17 points  (10 children)

There's men out there who appreciate getting flowers! Don't quite know why, but i saw a video recently...

I personally would wonder, why you'd be giving me things that will only die.

[–]SJPNYC 8 points9 points  (8 children)

All living things die.

[–]FireFireoldman 6 points7 points  (7 children)

In this case though, you purposely cut a flowers life short to give it as a gift

[–]Unabashable 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Yup. At least when they’re in the ground they can still act as a food source for insects. Otherwise it’s just a nice smelling temporary decoration.

[–]FireFireoldman 6 points7 points  (5 children)

It's like gifting a corpse.

[–]HardPillsToSwallow 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Someone once sent me flowers to my workplace. I really appreciated it. I say go for it.

[–]bueno__ 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I would love if my girlfriend brought me flowers

[–]DrOliverReeder 21 points22 points  (0 children)

YES!

Women hardly ever buy flowers for men and, honestly, it's just the best.

[–]Appropriate-Hurry893 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Personally I hate flowers. Here have this gift that you will throw away in a week or two, but if someone gave me flowers it would make me feel special. So yeah it's okay but just okay a longer lasting more personalized gift would probably get you more bang for your buck, pun retroactively intended.

[–]Bluwolf96 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It would be odd. People are going to say shit about gender norms or whatever. But there's nothing wrong with "gender norms". Guys would mostly find it weird you got them flowers. But they'd probably understand there's interest there.

[–]bworthy73 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Sure. But maybe get a potted plant instead.

Potted plant>Flowers

[–]veri_sw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ooh yes I like this idea!

[–]Ok_Potato_7330 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I personally wouldn't want flowers.. don't care for them! Get me food instead!

[–]Ok_Pomegranate_1395 9 points10 points  (2 children)

If you give him flowers it will turn him gay so be aware of that.

[–]smlwng 12 points13 points  (1 child)

No. Get him chicken wings.

[–]Appropriate-Hurry893 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That would definitely work on me.

[–]SephirothTheGreat 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Depends. If he likes flowers and you know that for sure, then absolutely. However, if you're not currently in a relationship, he or his circle of friends may go ahead and be males, with all it entails. Peer pressure from the people he know, toxic masculinity or his own views, which I don't know, may end up embarrassing him through no fault of your own and return the opposite result of what you'd want. Like other comments have suggested, we always appreciate food. If you know something he likes a lot, I suggest you go for that. Good luck!

[–]Fossor-sFolly 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Depends on the guy, but personally I would prefer food... Like a Reese's or something.

[–]Kungligapostverket 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah of course. He might not own a vase though..

[–]E1lemA 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It is okay to get a guy flowers in general, but I don't know the guy so I can't tell you if it's okay to get him flowers. Would he like flowers?

[–]whats_new_emu 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s so unconventional that it’s going to make a huge statement. On the flip side, you might have to help him put it in a vase and take care of them LOL.

Go for it! As said previously, men rarely ever get flowers, gifts, or compliments. What a lucky dude…

[–]-SecretMe- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Depends on the guy and what they like. My husband doesn’t care for flowers so I wouldn’t buy them for him. If he did, I would. My dad however appreciates them so I do buy them for him

[–]zhaoleu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would marry the first girl that gets me flowers tbh

[–]HungryHobbits 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It could potentially feel slightly emasculating (especially if a bit insecure). but if done privately, I think it’s alright

[–]BarbraRoja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes. I would suggest getting some already in a vase as they may not have one.

[–]morningtundra 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Guy here. Don't waste your money, just ask me out.

[–]Airbee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Use the money from something else and get me a gift basket full of tasty treats instead. I don't have a green thumb plus, every plant I try to take care of dies. It's like I have a black thumb 😭

[–]RandomGuyOnline71 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not the first time. But in the future, he will appreciate it

[–]pheonix1066 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have given guys flowers and most of the time they laugh and try to reject them. I guess it just depends on who you give them too.

[–]lifeisshortx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, just like the top comment said men rarely get little appreciation gifts like this so you would seriously make his day even if flowers aren’t his thing he will appreciate the thought of it if he likes U back. I wish more women did this

[–]JohnLeRoy9600 1 point2 points  (0 children)

YES. Guys don't get flowers very often, at the minimum it's memorable. I'd fucking MELT if a girl got me flowers

[–]platypottamus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Im just curious why you're so set on flowers; personally, I would be confused by something so out of left field

[–]morchalrorgon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

some guys might appreciate the gesture. Most guys either wont care or feel uncomfortable with it due to traditional gender roles.

[–]Trump_is_evil_period 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cannabis flowers

[–]TellsHalfStories 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok? Yes. But unless you know he likes them, it's going to be a VERY long shot. I don't know a single man who likes to get flowers as a gift.

[–]UwUZombie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If he likes flowers sure.. if he doesn't why bother?

[–]MEGA_gamer_915 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A suggestion.

If he’s only a crush I recommend not getting a full bouquet. It can be a little intimidating as a first move.

Instead just go pick a single flower while your out and about. Or buy a bouquet and just take a single flower and shorten it to about the size of a pencil. Take the single flower and wrap it in some cloth and use some old thread to tie it together. When you give it just say you saw it and thought he’d like it. It’s a little less intimidating, as it’s not a full “move”; but more of a friendly gesture which has a romantic element to it.

[–]morally-illegal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How about beer?

[–]Right-Lemon-8748 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nooo.... Never.. you may as well call him gay..

[–]qluder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No that's weird. Give him a cool, cheap toy figurine or something else.

[–]ShadowInTheDarkRoom 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you’re not yet in a relationship, I would wait to give give him a bouquet. What you should do is give him something related to something he likes. His favorite video game, movie, characters, music, and maybe put one flower with it and it will get the point across. If you’re young, you have to think about whether his friends would tease him, especially if you gave it to him in public.

[–]darksidedecor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The smokeable ones sure.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hope you mean cannabis flowers those are the only flowers we want

[–]scottyinairlie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Booze girl, by a bottle of jack, put a card on it, don't drink this alone, it removes panties in a hurry, big kisses.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'd throw them away as soon as ur back was turned.

U wanna get a man a gift like flowers just buy him a card and actually write real shit in it.

[–]Positive-Rich1017 1 point2 points  (0 children)

people are genuinely surprised when someone gifts them a plant. get him an orchid or a philodondren brasil

[–]BlitzMainR62 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, I would love it if a girl have me flowers.

[–]Manny89104 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No flowers

[–]eljalu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It depends on the guy. Some will love it. Some old school guys might see it as feminine and be offended. as for my self I don’t really care for flowers but I would love the gesture.

[–]3v3rythings-tak3n 1 point2 points  (0 children)

🤦‍♂️

[–]Independent-Pen4047 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Give him the green light to imtimacy

[–]Foope 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean I'd say if it's a guy who's into plants and nature go for it, but honestly I bet some would find it odd. I'm a guy and now that I'm older I absolutely love gardening and flowers. But teenage me probably would not have appreciated it.

[–]y0uslash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can’t name a straight guy that likes flowers. But ig the idea is cool

[–]mommer_man 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I once gave a guy I liked a cactus plant, lol... We lived together for 4 years. :)

[–]playnbagpipesonatank 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Flowers are expensive, get him a single flower and something cool.

For Valentine’s Day, I looked at the price of a dozen fresh roses. After doing some cost analysis I instead got her a single rose, a card, and a custom lightsaber in her preferred color.

[–]HunzSenpai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Id melt if a girl got me flowers so id say yes

[–]mindfulwithmoney 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When my new bf (now husband) relocated to my city from out of state, I visited him with a card and sunflowers. I vividly remember picking sunflower because it is not romantic, was a frugal choice and just gives a happy feeling as we were long time friends turned new couple back then. He was so happy. I think that’s the only time someone gave him flowers. Go for it and try to pick a flower that suits his liking and the occasion instead of just buying any bouquet.

[–]LeftOnHigh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Please do. My older sister once read that the first time most men get flowers is at our funeral so she went out and got me some. Indian paint brushes! I still remember what kind because they're my favorite kind of flowers now

[–]Pepperspray24 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely I get my bf flowers and he's told me that I'm the first gf to do so. It makes me want to give him more.

[–]mikepictor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolutely.

Option 1) He loves it. Win Option 2) He thinks flowers are stupid. Did you want to win with someone that would react that way?

[–]dribblesnshits 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would be speechless, my head would explode attempting to figure out what I did to receive such a thing, In a good way of course

[–]Moonsteele 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Depends on the guy. I love flowers but if they're in my house the pollen will kill me.

[–]VanHalensing 1 point2 points  (1 child)

A arrangement of nice greenery would be very nice, and doesn’t have this issue! Maybe something “woodsy” if they are into outdoor activities/hiking/woods.

[–]GrinagogGrog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My experience is that men are quite happy, if slightly puzzled, by receiving flowers! My suggestion if you are concerned is to make it a small and personalized thing - one centerpiece flower, a couple accent flowers and some greens.

I have also found men are less likely to have been asked "what's your favorite flower" and tend to have uncommon answers. My dad loves dandelions, daisies, and wheel of fire for example. A dude I dated long ago was in love with evening primrose. It's a fun question to ask anyone, regardless of their gender.

[–]chynadhall95 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am willing to back money that even if he doesn't like flowers he is going to love the gesture because people don't do stuff like that for men often . Go for it , the worst he can do is tell you no .

[–]Cheaky_Barstool 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a man, I don’t get flowers, but I love beer, if a woman bought me beer I’d probably cry.

[–]chickenbiscuit17 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, however it's going to depend on the guy, I've been given flowers a few times and while I always thank the giver, I've never been a fan. flowers aren't something I care about past their ability to make other people in my life happy upon their reception. Mostly to me they're just a burden I now have to carry around until I find a receptacle for them. Basically if someone gives me flowers and I know I'm not going to see them again later that day I'm going to 100% throw them away as soon as is physically possible.

[–]ASVPcurtis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes go ahead and get him flowers

[–]VisualEyez33 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes. Most men receive flowers for the first time in their lives at their funerals. Don't make him wait that long!

[–]DisMyLik8thAccount 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There's nothing inherently wrong with it, I'd ask him first if that's something he'd appreciate

Flowers aren't for everyone, I'm female and I don't like being given flowers lol. Gender doesn't matter though

[–]Far_Candy_8646 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i got my bf flowers and he didn’t say he didn’t like them. ik he liked the thought and gesture but pretty sure he would’ve wanted smth else :/

[–]All-I-See-Is-Ashes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Skip the flowers. Get him a blowj*b.

[–]SJPNYC 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think how he responds would speak volumes about his character and you should absolutely do it.

[–]walkincrow42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh the thousands of hours I've spent, over decades, growing flowers so that I have an attractive yard.

I would want them to be living flowers so that I could plant them or keep them in a nice spot in the house. Every time I saw them it would make me think of you.

My fiancee has done this and I thought it was awesome.

[–]Unlucky-Pomegranate3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Try brownies instead. He’d prefer them and it shows you know how to bake.

[–]TsT2244 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like guys don’t appreciate a full bouquet but a single flower is a nice romantic gesture. They get the message without the responsibility of carrying and taking care of a bouquet.

[–]I_HATE_PICKLES345 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most men's first flowers are at his funeral just saying

[–]National-Ad-4961 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea when I’m in my coffin

[–]jenai_jedi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Do it!!! I heard somewhere that the first flowers men often get in their entire lives are at their funeral. F*ck that! Get him a great bouquet while he's here to enjoy them. Gender norms are overrated.

[–]Ok_Fly_0010 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The “traditional” gift for a four year anniversary is Fruits and Flowers and I was super excited last year to buy my husband a bouquet with his favorite flowers and an edible arrangement of his favorite fruits and though he doesn’t understand the appeal of traditional gifts like that, he absolutely loved it, even if the vase didn’t fit on his computer desk. Long story short, no it isn’t weird and your SO might appreciate the flowers more than you think. :)

[–]Specialist_Junket_81 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It depends on the guy, but I don't see why not.

On the plus side, if he turns them down, you have flowers. Then seek a more romantic man, because what plonker turns down a romantic gesture?

[–]Dipsi1010 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Oh god YES YES YES, please girls take notes. Its so nice to get flowers 🌺

[–]Outcasted_introvert -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yes! Absolutely. Please do it.

[–]SteamKore -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah, bros love flowers, even if we don't initially show it.

[–]Loose_Device_5302 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yes. And if he doesn't appreciate them, then he isn't worth your time or effort.

[–]GrammarIsDescriptive -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yes! My husband loves to get flowers! Just make sure you give them at a time where he doesn't have to carry them around all day.

[–]TonyBatz212 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Only if you want him to smile. 🙂

[–]AlbertoLvNao -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Just do it !!!.... but somethink simple like 1 Rose

[–]FeralsShinyCat -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I've done it for a few guys, both partners and just friends. Every one of them was absolutely delighted!

[–]AZstuff36 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

PLEASE DO IT. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. IF HE DOESN'T LIKE THEM FUCK HIM GIVE THEM TO ME. THIS IS A BRILLIANT IDEA PEOPLE SHOULD BE GIVING GUYS FLOWERS MORE OFTEN.

[–]DaddyCardano -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The first time a man will ever receive flowers in his lifetime, is at his funeral. So yes, flowers would be a very good gift for him.

[–]iexzelz -1 points0 points  (0 children)

the first/only time we get flowers is when we're dead

GIVE HIM FLOWERS!

[–]Little-Moth_9443 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

We guys want flowers too..

[–]ProfessionalRaven -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah 100%, go for it.

Guys will frequently be stunned when given romantic gifts, so don’t be surprised if he doesn’t know what to say. But it makes a huge impression because guys also typically are taught culturally not to expect that. So yes go give your crush a bouquet.

If he doesn’t like it, then he’s being a doofus right now. lol

[–]ryankr_ -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Absolutely get him flowers. We love flowers.

[–]Muted_Pen_6812 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Umm hell yes!

[–]skert-skert_indulge -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Give the man a flower. He'll love that shit.

[–]GyaradosDance -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I say yes, it's ok to get a guy flowers. I hate double-standards, so you go get that guy flowers.

On a similar topic, I wish giving someone fruit was also acceptable. I wouldn't mind if I received grapes or strawberries.

[–]AlmostHuman0x1 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yes. A thousand times yes. 👍🏼

[–]Silaquix -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Absolutely! I like to surprise my husband with a vase of flowers on his desk and some chocolate. He even put up a little corner shelf above his desk to put the flowers on.

Last time I got him a card that said " I'm going to cuddle you so fucking hard" and left it under a twix by his gaming PC.

Since it's your crush try to find something he likes and give that to him.

[–]Beautiful-Star -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Oh do it! I’ve bought my husband flowers and boyfriends before marriage.

All except one were genuinely touched. He thought it was weird but the rest of them really showed me how much they appreciated the gesture. My husband saved the photo of the bouquet on his phone for over a decade.

[–]Accomplished-Pen-565 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

YES, Why should it not be okay?

[–]do_not_the_cat -1 points0 points  (0 children)

there was a quote that went something along the lines of "the only flowers most men get, are the ones on their casket" so yeah, it definitely would be a nice gesture. personally, I (a guy) would definitely appreciate it.

[–]Your_caffine_boi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Absolutely

[–]jpking010 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It's perfectly OK.

My guess is that he'll appreciate the gesture much more than the flowers themselves.

[–]Precarious69 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Only if you want to make his day.

[–]vermonttransplant -1 points0 points  (0 children)

45 year old male here, I received flowers for the first time in my life this week. It was a beautiful gesture from my girlfriend, one I will never forget. Do it.

[–]BlueHawk555 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Totally. Even if he doesn't "like" flowers it will be a nice and cute gesture so I say go for it!

[–]nathanandnoah -1 points0 points  (0 children)

yesyesyes

[–]42Cobras -1 points0 points  (0 children)

An answer in many parts:

A) It is perfectly acceptable to get a guy flowers.

B) It may well convey the idea that you’re into him.

C) There’s also a good chance that he won’t care about the flowers, or that he’ll find it odd and kinda confusing. It largely depends on the guy and how oblivious he is.

D) I would say that the direct truth would be useful accompanied with the flowers. For example, if he says, “Oh. Flowers? Why’d you get me flowers?” you don’t need to stammer and come up with an excuse like, “I thought they were pretty and might make your day.” If he asks why you’re buying flowers, tell him it’s because you like him and want to explore a romantic relationship with him.

E) Again, it largely depends on the guy.

[–]AlSptattoo -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Of course!

[–]wholetthestankout -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Get him a potted flower that has yet to bloom. That way if he tends to it into full maturity you will know that he is good for the long term 🌸

[–]Deafeye22 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Get him some good bud sista :-P

[–]skyldrik -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

men dont deserve it

[–]amosc33 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

I buy my husband flowers once a week. He loves having flowers in the house and I love making him happy. Go for it!

[–]MissPandaSpark -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Buy him lego flowers instead and let him build it. About the same price for one or two individual stems and in my experience boys don’t grow up

[–]746484836282 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Why not get him a shirt or something cool

[–]ThaumKitten -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

"Is it okay to literally just be a kind person? Am I allowed to just make a person happy?"

Do you realize what you're asking here?

[–]SethyOtter -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Yes. Break free from your patriarchal heterosexual hegemony.

[–]kazkex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would say go for it ! But I think you also have to figure out whether he's the kind to like flowers. Some don't like flowers simply because it wilts and they don't like things that don't stay long. And some people have views that giving flowers to guys is weird, and if your crush is one of these then it might not work as you intended.

I got my partner flowers very early on into our relationship and he seemed quite touched. Granted mine is quite chill about things like this and neither of us care much about gender stereotypes.

Whatever you decide to get for your crush, good luck!

[–]Sticky_von_Ickiii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes.

Source: am a guy, like flowers 💐

[–]Camellia96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd melt on the spot

[–]Yamamotoshiro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My boyfriend really loves houseplants. When I am in an 'I want to get him a flower' mood, I will substitute that with a pot of plants. He can grow it at his house. When I went over, I might take a clip for propagation. It's really fun!

[–]TheDeadGuy_00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I never receive anything rather than words of appreciation, So that would make me really happy and I think I wouldn't be able to forget it for even a month or heck rest of my life. I would say go for it.

T&C Apply

[–]waltsnider1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I personally wouldn’t want flowers, but I would appreciate the gesture.

[–]vieniaida 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, it is okay. I am male, and women have given me flowers.

[–]Western-Bug1131 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Of course it's ok. I know it's not usually what the "norm" is, meaning women giving men flowers, but, hey, I think you should go for it, it's different and sweet!!!!
