If you think someone was fat, why would you buy them anything anyway?

Unless you are into cute, chubby girls

Its not "fat" .. its just more body to Love!
A carrot stick maybe?

Good save saying cute, and more body to love

Re: Why Real Men Buy Women Flowers?

The only time my hubby gave me flowers was when he met me at the airport when I arrived.

I let them dry and still have them.


Meanwhile, if I want flowers in the house... I buy them myself.

Dont think its an issue with the Nationality or Race but poverty and frustration... people who do not have enough economic means and opportunities tend to be easily agitated and confrontational... often women and kids face the brunt.
I would think numbers in the Western countries are the same everywhere and slightly higher in the muslim countries. However I know a woman who regularly beats her boyfriend and she is Russian.

Hey, keep me out of your justifications. I was being sarcastic.

It's been proven in a study that women in general prefer "useless" gifts.

So flowers instead of a toaster, a day pass to a spa instead of a set of winter tires for the car.

It's funny, 8th May in Russia, hordes of men run around with huge bouquets of flowers and a bottle of vodka. Woe to the man who doesn't bring some...
You meant probably 8th March - the International Day of Women. 8th May is the Day before the Victory Day in the 2nd WW. And bottle of champagne/sparkling wine would do a better job then vodka which would have been taken offending by women. Vodka - it's more for men.

Re: Why Real Men Buy Women Flowers?

It reminds me of this "The Simpsons" dialog:

(Michael and Fat Tony invite the Simpson family over for dinner.)
Marge: We'd love to! You know, I've never met you wife.
Fat Tony: Sadly, my Anna Maria was whacked by natural causes.
Marge: Oh, you're a widower.
Fat Tony: I bring flowers to her grave every Sunday.
Marge: Ooh, flowers every week! I wish I was dead.

The flowers the guy in the article bought cost him ten bucks.

Not possible in London nor Zürich.

I like sending flowers for the simple reason that they're beautiful and they make the recipient happy.
Absolutely wrong - There is a market near Burkliplatz each week where a seller has flowers for 1CHF per flower!!

Skip the chrysantemums and carnations in general. I'm trying to think of a culture where they don't have to do with funerals.
Japan. Emperor's flower.
