Other than on a special occasion, there were a few times I'd do something like that. One time I left a rose on the night stand when she (my ex, now) was sleeping because I woke up early to go get coffee, and when she woke up she was confused at first but smiling away afterward. I like surprise so I do things like this, lol. Creative-like, I guess.
I think that one "perfect" red rose is fine (not an old dried up one you got on the street for a dollar from some poor foreigner with no job). Giving more then one doesn't really show anything apart from that you want to show you are spending cash. One red rose is about the meaning. By giving a dozen you don't "increase" the meaning. But I had to adapt to my "target" and settled for a black rose instead.
yeah I did that b4. but like even though it wasnt a real rose or anything she still loved it because it was completely random of me and she didn't really think that I would do something like that for her so soon so she was surprised and she loved it.
I think that would be so sweet if that happened to me. It's a simple gesture, but a red rose has such a beautiful and powerful meaning behind it. I would think it would be very romantic. Sometimes I daydream about receiving one. I'm sure there are guys still like that out there somewhere. At least, that's what I want to think. ^-^
