Some girls love roses, I don't..

It's always lovely getting flowers that are completely unexpected. So I don't understand why so many people insist on ruining the surprise.

Take this example:   This one individual decided to 'Surprise' me, and he may have been 17 at the time, but that's inconsequential.  Now if you know him, you will know that him and surprises are like oil and water.  From the moment he resolved to send me those roses, there was not a second in his life where he was not dropping hints about 'what was to come'.  

So if you are going to do the whole flower thing (and the girl is not your sister), here's how:

1. Don't buy red roses, they are cliche and if you don't know someone that well, they can be a bit intimidating and a little too "full on" if it's early days. Personally, I'm not crazy about roses but I ADORE hydrangeas.

2. If your giving her the flowers make the bouquet small- if your sending them, think big.

3. Don't forget to include a card- write whatever you want, as long as you mean it.

4. Don't imbue the gesture with any particular significance. It means more if we think you were casual/nonchalant about the whole thing.

5. And of course, make sure we get them when we least expect them
