Does your girlfriend hate flowers?

I remember my ex gf really hates it when I give her flowers... actually it was only once that I attempted to do so... it was our first Valentine's Day together... that was my biggest surprise that I had put a lot of effort just to be able to get it... I know she doesn't like flowers but on that day something within me felt like I should still do it maybe just this once she'll appreaciate it... It was my tradition to give flowers to all of the girls that are close to me on V-day but on that day I chose to spend all my money on my bouquet for her... it wasn't too expensive or too big either in fact it was a very simple bouquet... I hid it under my jacket and casually gave it to her because she doesn't like too mushy moments... I can still remember her reaction it's as if she wants to throw it right in front of me... then I remember I had to lend her my jacket for the whole day just so she can hide it from other people's notice... while our friends were teasing me why they didn't receive one from me... I was offended by her reaction... it crushed me because I felt like she didn't even appreciate my effort and what I've gone through just to be able to get that for her... she was so embarrassed instead of being proud that she's one of those few who actually receives flowers on V-day... but I blamed myself for that... I told myself that it was all my fault and I didn't have the right to get hurt... but I can't lie to myself... it's like I stabbed my own chest... it was V-day couldn't she at least pretend to appreciate it... why was she so embarrassed when so many girls dreamed of receiving such gift specially on V-day... so what do you think? do you have the same story? share your views and stories...

I love all types of flowers and love them as gifts , or I used to when I had the money pick some up once a week . I love being surprised with them , oh such a good feeling . That is rare that someone wont like flowers.

There are some people who doesn't like or embarassed to receive gifts or flowers. I myself don't like to receive flowers because it will die eventually. Yes maybe if its given in a pot i would appreciate it. We all have different preferences on gifts but what's important is we must appreciate every little gift a person gives us.

yeah that's right... you know though my ex made me feel a little hurt at first when she didn't seem to appreciate the flowers I later on found out that she did keep it in her room for quite some time... =)
