The fashion for red roses symbolising love started with the Robbie Burns poem, which begins "My love is like a red, red rose". Burns was an 18th century Scottish poet, and red roses have been the symbol of love every since.

It is believed that Red Rose signifies LOVE. Yellow is for friendship. Since Rose is cheap and best, they prefer it. Giving Rose is the best way to propose, if your proposal is rejected, not much of your money will be lost. Don't ever risk giving costlier gifts while you propose, you'll have to buy many more afterwards if she accepts you.....LOL.

Thanks for responding the discussion. You are right that red rose is a symbol of love. Have you ever offer the red rose to any girl? If yes, what was her reaction?

I read in a book that roses symbolize love. Red roses mean love triumphant, so it seems appropriate.

There are all different ways to propose. I love red roses, but not because of what they are supposed to symbolize, I love them bcause I love the colour. I love white roses too. I love the two colours together because of my Danis and Canadian flags.

Rose is considered to be very romantic due to its construction and sweet smell. And red colour indicated the intensity of love.

Simply because red roses signifies love and women wants to be loved. When you give red roses to a woman, it means that you offer her true love.

some people think red roses symbolizes love..but for me i only gave red ones to my friends and family member..i gave white roses to my special someone because i think white is more appropriate to give because white symbolizes purity and my love is so pure to my gf...

red rose  - red rose
O my Luve's like a red, red rose, That's newly sprung in June: O my Luve's like the melodie That's sweetly play'd in tune. As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, So deep in luve am I;And I will luve thee still, my Dear, Till a' the seas gang dry. Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear, And the rocks melt wi' the sun: And I will luve thee still, my Dear, While the sands o' life shall run. And fare thee weel, my only Luve! And fare thee weel, awhile! And I will come again, my Luve, Tho' it were ten thousand mile!
