It has been many years, but I once received flowers at work from my wife.
To say it was an unusual experience is an understatement.Â But to say that it was not welcomed, is untrue.
Typically men will send flowers to their wives, girlfriends, lovers, etc… sometimes all three at the same time, though that is topic for another posting.Â But the reverse is not as common.Â You do not hear of a woman sending her Husband, boyfriend, lover, etc… (again, sometimes all three.) flowers.
I think, from the man’s point of view, there is a little bit of intimidation to the idea of a woman sending him flowers.Â It is a little more aggressive than some men are probably use to or want.Â I can even see how this might drive a wedge into a budding relationship.Â Face it, men like to feel like they are at the helm of the relationship.Â Receiving flowers, especially in someplace as public as work or in the presence of friends, can lead to a little embarrassment.
Speaking from the point of veiw of a guy who has gotten flowers at work.Â It is a little bit of a red faced moment, to be sure.Â But it is fun.Â You can let the minds of your fellow workers wander a little bit as to why you are getting them and from whom.Â You do not need to tell them all the facts.
So… for those few ladies that might read this blog… send your men (Husbands, Lovers, Boyfriends, or all three at the same time) flowers some time… just to see what happens.Â If you really want to mix things up put some little “naughty” note on the flowers.Â Â You know the co-workers will read it and they will start the rumors.
Love is meant to be fun and have fun… you just have to find the things that inspire you.
