How would you feel about a guy bringing you a single white rose on a first date? How do you feel about a guy bring you a flower arrangement or a dozen red roses on a first date?
- No flowers! That is just too clingy or desperate for me.
- If he brought me a simple, inexpensive arrangement of flowers - or a single white rose - I would be flattered. If he brings me a dozen roses, that is way too much too soon!
- If he brought me a dozen roses on a first date, I would think he is a romantic and classy guy and he would definitely have my attention.

A single flower or a small bouquet is flattering for sure, and appreciated. It's not a bad thing to do on a first date, and in many cultures (including Russian culture, which is my background), it's a requirement. But I feel like it would put me into an awkward position as I'm highly allergic to most flowers, and the reaction happens almost immediately.
I would just be upfront before the date and tell him I don't want any flowers, and it's because of bad allergies. And then hope he doesn't get offended, think I'm making it up, or cancel on me. If he still showed up with a flower, it's fine but it also kind of tells me he doesn't listen! 😊
All hypothetical though - I'm already married and I had fake flowers at my wedding.
