A girl I have been dating has had a rough time at work lately so I ordered some flowers for her and sent them :) She works under the flower shop lol. Do you think sending flowers to someone randomly is a good thing? I really have no reason why I did it other than the fact she said she was having a bad day :S<br><br>
Am I being creepy by doing that? I got the flowershop lady to write I hope your day gets better from my name on the card.<br><br>
I dunno Ive never sent anyone flowers before. The only time Ive ever given anyone a flower was when I stole a rose from my mothers garden because she said she had never been given a flower before. But that was a long time ago when I was younger I dunno :S<br><br>
I dunno is it creepy or a nice thought i dunno :S Im stressing over it now :S

If it were a random girl it might be creepy but since you've been dating her it should be fine. I think it's very considerate of you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I agree. As long as you are actually dating the girl and she isn't just a random stranger you are stalking then gifts and flowers and nice gestures are ALWAYS a good idea, that's very sweet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

I did it once, but it wasn't necessarily "random"...<br>
I really upset my closest friend in high school, and she happened to tell me a week before that she had a soft spot for flowers. So I bought her a bouquet at a flower stand, and walked it, like, over a mile to her house, and left it with her brother.<br>
Worked out well for me!<br><br>
As long as you didn't spend too much, it shouldn't come off as too weird.

Yes, it's a very sweet gesture. As everybody else said, as long as it's not a random stranger (although that could make their day), it's a very good move.

It is absolutely fine to send your significant other flowers for no reason. It would only be creepy to send random gifts to a girl who was not interested in you.

I suppose it would depend on the person and the level of comfort within the relationship. Was she weirded out by the gesture? It was very thoughtful for sure, hopefully she's enjoying them!

It's absolutely sweet to send a girl you're dating flowers for no reason at all, or in your case, because she was feeling bad! Sometimes it's even better then, than on holidays or birthdays when those things are more common. I'm sure you brightened her day! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Nothing to be paranoid about.

That was a lovely gesture <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
My boyfriend bought me some cheap flowers from the shop the other day, for no reason other than he didn't want them dying in the shop and they were cheap. Normally I don't go for cut flowers as i prefer to have a plant that will live, but I truly thought it was a nice sweet gesture <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yes. About two weeks later the flowers always die. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You did ok but I personally dont like real flowers for some reason and my husband knows it. I like virtual flowers or silk or fake flowers they last longer

I think it's so sweet!<br><br>
I would love to randomly get flowers, not even necessarily from a romantic partner either, even from friends it'd be so sweet. I've sent friends flowers in the past when they've been having a bad time just to let them know I'm thinking of them. And I've also sent them for other much sadder reasons of course.

What you should've done is gone to her flower shop for flowers, and said you need flowers for someone (a family member, etc), and asked her what flowers she liked. Then sent her those flowers. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
