Someone needs to step up in the romance department. Although, she probably bought them herself.
If your girlfriend is that easy to persuade in her affection, perhaps you'd best look elsewhere. She should know you love her, roses or no. Sorry OP.
I agree. It doesn't have to be expensive items to show your affection for your love ones. My boyfriend will sometimes draw me an unexpected bath when I come home from a hard work day or even get me a box of Mike and Ike candies (my fav) to show that he thinks about my happiness. No one wants to feel unappreciated.
16 though its a two way street I agree. My partner and I both buy and make little things to let the other know we are thinking of them. Both of us have different talents in making things the other likes. I surprise him whenever I have time with a sketch or painting of his favorite subjects, he has made me several pieces of beautiful jewelry as he knows I love anything that is shiny or iridescent. I got a friend to help me do a private modeling shoot for him. It doesn't have to be expensive or fancy. Things that show you know the others tastes are far more meaningful. We also send each other thinking of you texts throughout the day. Just a nice reminder someone cares. Heck you can even leave cute notes for each other. If you know your partner loves coffee, a cup of coffee with a note "thinking of you, I love you" goes a long way. Far further than flowers. Nothing makes my day more than getting a midday text saying "I saw this and thought about you" and a photo of something in his day.
So if you didn't like flowers and your boyfriend bought them for you, you'd have the audacity to say "ew you know I hate flowers."? A gift is a gift and especially if it's a random occasion, should be gratefully taken. I definitely am not a chocolate and roses kind of girl but when my boyfriend comes to my doorstep with flowers I gladly accept.
