    Would someone please show my boyfriend this article? Heheh... he does the exact opposite, refuses to buy flowers, wants to spend his money on things with "real value" like dvds. I'd like flowers!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

      Flowers are awesome. So are nice dinners out from time to time. I agree with this article to some degree, but not 100% While women do enjoy gifts, I've found the best things in life often come free...A little time and attention from your honey goes a long way, regardless of what you do or where you go. A kind word or a hug at the right time can do wonders in securing a woman's affections, just as much as candlelit dinners, candy, or flowers.

          I think the giving of "worthless" gifts is part of that consideration. Giving a woman something just because it will please her, without regard to its actual functionality, shows a level of concern for her happiness that is quite attractive. Don't have to be expensive, just thoughtful. Like a $6 bouquet from Trader Joe's, or even a $3 rose. Hell, a rose cut from somebody's front garden.

            You know, I kinda went off on my boy on our first Valentine's Day because he sent me this beautiful bouquet of long stemmed roses. We were apart and he thought it would be nice. THey were pretty, but they cost a ridiculous ammount of money. I thanked him, but told him not to bother spending that much money on flowers in the future. It's really cute, though, becuase now he buys me the cheapy bouquets of carnations which I love and can live with.

            SO I guess the point of that story was to illustrate that the gifts don't necessarily need to be elaborate, just something out of the blue to prove that you remember us even if we're not standing right next to you.

              If you want to help guys out, there needs to be some kind of info on how to even GET to the first date. Once you clear that hurdle, everything else seems like a breeze!

                There is nothing like a pot of planted dasies to brighten a womans mood... That and a huge cardboard cut of a cow...

                Mooo! Moooo! Moo, I say! Moooo!

                  I would avoid cow imagery at all costs, unless you specifically know she collects them. Otherwise she'll think you're sending her a subtle message that she's fat. And that, my friend, will not go over well.

                  Tulips are wonderful.

                    Oh please, like you need it, you've got a gorgeous girlfriend already!

                    But okay, here's the secret: find the girls that look like they're trying to disappear. They're the ones who haven't been asked out in a long time and are embarrassed because they think they're unattractive. Make eye contact and smile but don't come over right away. Make sure she "catches" you checking her out a few times, then try to "accidentally" meet, such as, if you see her in a particular spot, have some business to attend to right near her so you have a chance to encounter her.

                    Make her feel special. Not in a creepy pervy way though. Get to know her a while before asking for her phone number. If you lack enough time for that, then try to get her to join you for coffee or something to extend the time you spend together before you get to the all-important phone number.

                    Call her the next day. Sound all cute and nervous. Women don't like to feel like they're being called only because no hotter chick could be found.

                        Wow.. very interesting. Thanks for sharing this DQ. I love those sort of things from time to time but I don't think they are neccesary.

                        Ah.. I went through the same thing with my boyfriend! I think distance makes them to silly things. But he finally got the hand of it. Last V-day he was in line at the Godiva chocolate place thinking why in the world was he going to spend $40 on 20 chocolates when I would love something cheaper more. So I got two boxes of Twix cookie bar things instead. Sooo yummy! :yea:

                        I'm guess I'm just a cheap chocolate whore.

                          Seems like common sense to me. If you spent money on fancy dinners out, then that means you're spending money, but you're WITH the lady in question.

                          Anyone want to use this principle and take me out to the Melting Pot? Please? :beg:

                            BPF, why do you insist on making it so easy for me to pick on you?

                            I'm not touching that one. :whistling

                              But sometimes a bouquet of roses costs more than three or so DVD's!
