    Question Apology flowers

    Advertisements
    So what do you think about getting flowers as an apology (like from your SO)? Does it usually make you feel better? Why or why not?


    I really dislike getting flowers as a "Sorry I messed up!" When I look at them all I see is the thing that originally upset me.. not sure how most people feel about it

    Love getting flowers as a romantic gesture though, or "just because" flowers.

    I'd rather an apology than a present- kind of seems like the easy way out, you know?

    Depends on the severity.

    "Sorry I forgot to call," "Sorry I started a fight over somethin stupid,"/"Sorry I am stupid." Sure.

    "Sorry I banged your sister." Uhhhhh nuh.

    be cool.

    I don't like flowers for specific things such as valentines or anniv or bday or I'm sorry too cliche. I only like them as a random gesture of affection.

    It depends on the situation. Usually, most of the time they make me feel better...but there has been a situation where all it did was make me upset to look at the flowers that he had given me...everytime I looked at them it reminded me of what happened...it almost made it harder. It was a sweet gesture to get the flowers...but they really must upset me more than anything.

    ....But other than that...they usually put a smile on my face

    I can honestly say I have never received flowers for this reason so I truly don't know how I would feel about it!

    I've never gotten apology flowers, but I'm not a big fan of the idea.

    I'd raither get them "just because", not because he feels like he messed up or feels like he has to for a particular holiday
