To many, purchasing flowers is cliché or corny or tacky. And to others, it’s an outdated ritual in our modern era of gender equality.
Flowers should not apologize; they should symbolize some wonderful thoughts about the woman.
Those days are in the past, of course. Flowers do not resolve conflicts, nor do they anesthetize.
Buying a gift for that special person is just a way of saying “I’m thinking about you when you’re not here.”
And that’s what flowers are, just a simple, easy way of letting someone know they were in your thoughts. That’s it. It’s not complicated. Flowers announce: out of sight, still in my mind and heart. It is unerringly human to want to know that someone is thinking about you when you are not around.
Bottom line? – real men buy flowers, it’s not stupid or a waste of money or cheesy. It’s a way of a man showing I’ve thought of you and I want you to know that. That for me shows true strength!
