Eight years ago, I was single and dating with internet sites like match and plenty of fish. When I met a lady for the first time, I would bring her a single yellow rose in a vase. The yellow rose symbolizes friendship. Of course, most of these dates did not result in a long term relationship. A male friend of mine thought that it was a corny, stupid thing to do and I was probably scaring women away. No woman ever told me that it was an "over the top" thing to do but I assume most women would be polite about it even if they thought it was stupid or scary. I am again single and have started internet dating and I am wondering if I should resume this practice. So. .. please vote and tell me what you think.

Honestly, I think it's sweet. I don't think many people speak Flower, nowadays, but the sentiment -that even if a romance never blossoms, a friendship is nice -is lovely. The vase seems a bit much, though -what does she do with it if you're not meeting at her place? Even a small one is awkward to carry around -and that's without a flower in it. I'd advise checking first to see if she has allergies -the sort of woman who'd give a date a second chance if he gave her breathing problems (even accidentally) is rare.2
