Talking Ok guys... why is getting flowers from a chick considered "gay"?

Had a conversation at work today with a group of co-workers (guys and girls)... 1/2 the guys think getting flowers from a girl is gay while the others think it's more of a thought that counts thing and doesn't mind them.

So boys, help me learn more about your train of thought. Are the ones that think it's gay, looking at it from a more traditionalist POV or do they just don't like flowers???

Jamie (looking to learn more about the male psyche).

Thumbs up

There's NOTHING wrong with getting flowers. The best time was when I ran the LA Marathon. Somehow my GF found me in the mass of runners at the finish line. It was an awesome experience to begin with, the flowers was something I completely didn't expect and really put it over the top!

that way both win

guy will get some, and girl will feel special

Getting flowers is way cool, especially when my girlfriend aranges them in that Japansese style of arangement....I forget what its called though, becuase I don't listen very well....just ask her

If someone was going to go to all the trouble of giving me flowers, I would just as soon they spend the money on a case of Mobil1 or something like that.

I guess it depends on the person. A guy at my office just got a big, expensive looking boquet (exotic looking flowers) delivered to him and he was proud.

I've had flowers sent a few times by an old girlfriend, and frankly, I felt a bit odd when the delivery boy brought them by. I'm with Stu, I'd rather my wife spend the money on something else (or not at all) than on flowers for me.

As for it being gay ... not.

Having a woman that even considers sending something seems to me to be a big plus. From my experience most expect to be on the recieving end... As for flowers, I'm not sure that they would be at the top of my list.

Ultimatly, it is the thought that counts, and if the girl knows the guy well enough, she should know already if he will appreciate flowers. Personally, I am a bit practicle, so I see flowers a waste of time and money. When I do break down and get them for my wife, they are extra special, and she has grown to know that (Been together for 8 years, given flowers 5 times). She knows me well enough to know that a good steak will be received much better than some flowers.

I have a co worker whose husband wheels with me. He just turned 40. She asked a bunch of the other guys in our office (and not me!!) what she should get him. She decided upon a leather recliner. It shows up, he says great, but for that, I could have gotten fuel injection on my CJ. She is ****ed, but chair goes back and he gets fuel injection. She should have known him well enough and not listened to a bunch of uptight engineers (or asked me!).

It all depends on the couple.......

Lightbulb A obvoius point you guys are missing

A man getting flowers from a woman- niiiice!

A man getting flowers from another man- now that is gay!

I suppose you homophobes also demonstrate your manhood by refusing to dance with women too, huh?

Dance with a woman and you have reached full blown gayness ( Not that anything is wrong with that )

Yes. You are a fruit, married to a beautiful, smart woman.

From my experience most expect to be on the receiving end...

You suppose you want to be on the receiving end?

She should have known him well enough and not listened to a bunch of uptight engineers (or asked me!).

I think he should have been considerate enough to gratefully accept the chair, and not whine about how he wanted an injection instead.

I suppose you homophobes also demonstrate your manhood by refusing to dance with women too, huh?

I never motivated my refuses to dance like that, but thank you for the idea!

"Would you like to dance with me?"
"I don't dance, it's gay!"


An emerging breed of man, the metrosexual, shows his soft, sensitive, feminine side.

Oh boy. I think I know one metrosexual. He just bought a blue bus...

Let's realy get to the bottom of this!! How many of you sit down to pee

I am so straight, I even go number two standing up straight.

That's it!

No she's not Japanese, she taught english in Japan for over a year and took classes while she was there. She's really really good at it too.

Hmmm.... well this is interesting, some don't mind, some want or would rather have more practical stuff, and others just find it very homosexual.

Could it be the ones that find it very homosexual just have never been given flowers so they could decided if they like getting them or decide that they would rather have more practical things???

HMMMMMMMMMMM.....

Getting flowers from a girl is cool. Now, if those flowers came from a guy, then I agree: it's about as gay as you can get (not that there's anything wrong with that )

For the record, in my case the flowers came from a girl

I'm secure enough in my sexuality that I don't care! My wife teaches at a major university, has many gay friends. They are just like any other people (I don't worry about what they do at home) except most of the men dress better than I do and shave more often.
My wife expects a certain amount of sensativity from me, help choosing clothes and honest (and sometimes dishonest) opinions of her figure/looks. For that, I expect a kitchen pass for periodic weekends in order to tear up (I mean wheel) my Jeep.
Every once in a while, skinny-dipping in the pool after dark (when the kids are gone) helps a lot!
If I were to make a long story short: Giving/receiving flowers being gay is all in the eye of the beholder!
Of course my wife knows that a fresh-baked bread or nice bottle of wine are my soft spots!

I don't recall receiving flowers by a lady, but this story of mine comes to mind & kind of sounds like a chapter from a romance novel.

While dating a girl who sometimes stayed at my house while I went to work, I arrived home & when I went upstaires to my bedroom, I noticed lots of red rose petals scattered along the staircase leading to my room. As I opened the door, the trail led to the bed & she was awaiting my arrival correctly dressed, or should I say undressed?

As for the source of the roses; while I was at work she did some yardwork for me.
