    Good idea/Bad idea. Flowers for a friend.

    Alright MMO-fos, here's the situation.

    Me and this girl tried to date awhile back, but it didn't work out due to time and other stuff (Not important). Anyways, we became friends again recently and I'm considering sending her some flowers for valentines day (Nothing red and heart throbbing) but just something as a nice gesture for her. I'll probably put a riddle for her so she has to figure out who actually sent them (she likes that kind of stuff).

    Thoughts? Stupid? Waste of time? Let me know what you think!

    P.S. Money isen't an issue and I was honestly just doing this to give her a good day at work.

    Nothing over the top. On Valentine's Day, I buy a single rose for several women.

    If you do it, do not be surprised if you have to knock her back later and tell her you just want to be friends. Something like that may end up doing more harm than good.

    Seems like it could go over poorly. She might think you are still interested. Even if you say you aren't, it's like, is he just saying that to save face?

    Yeah given the situation probably not wise, you'd be sending very mixed signals which could lead to awkwardness.

    If you know her well enough and you're close enough as friends, yeah.

    Just go with a single flower, not a rose and not red. Yellow flowers are usually associated with friendship.

    Nope, don't do it. You might see it as a nice gesture for her to get something nice while she's at work, however she will see it as this guy still likes likes me...hmmm. Unless, you know, that's what you actually want and you don't want to be just friends. Situations where flowers are useful = death, extremely sick in hospital, or let's have sex.

    I mean its one way to fuck up a friendship, somebody you say you are just friends with sending them flowers on Valentines day, a lovers holiday.

    I appreciate you giving woman more credit - dont - trade secret - we look into everything, I mean everything.

    We as a whole generally over analysis the bajesus out of any situation. Men tend to be straight and narrow, woman hence our curves we are all over the damn place.

    it can't be that bad , why would you have the need to investigate every little detail.
    Sending flowers doesn't mean ''' I know it didn't work-out between the two of us , but please give me one me try , i want is you''

    Sending flower in my perception is a sign of friendship and respect.

    Perhap it is different for everyone.

    Yellow is supposed to signify friendship if you want to go that route. I did buy a friend a yellow rose once, in High School. I think it made her boyfriend slightly uncomfortable, but she liked it.

    I will give to you that the date is not really appropriate , but in general it shouldn't , sending flower to someone shouldn't be a big deal.
    I don't understand how you can make thousand scenario out of such little thing o_0.

    Unless you WANT to be more now... don't send flowers, but if you insist, the above poster already stated it.

    Yellow flowers indicate friendship. Keep it simplistic and platonic and most women will get the message based on the colour and arrangement.

    This is true. but not all woman will know the color yellow.

    Believe it or not.

    Sounds like you're already firmly in the friend zone.

    Given that there are 3 billion+ other females on the planet I'd maybe send to someone who is a more likely candidate. Don't send them anonymously either unless you just want to waste money.
