maxroswell tells me there’s still guys left in the world who buy girls flowers. Peeps, weigh in, is this true?
I feel oddly overworked this week. I mean sure, I’m still living my complete slacker lifestyle, but having to a place at a certain time is hard. Heee! Okay, that’s not true, but work is mind-numbingly boring in that way that you just STARE for a hour when you get home because work ate your ability to think coherently.
Having read all the Takeshi Kovacs books I have on hand I’m about to start re-reading the Weetzie Bat books. Even the thought of reading them again makes me both giddy and insanely melancholy. But since I have the tattoo, I hope the giddy wins out.
I had some other stuff to say, but as always, I’ve forgotten what must surely be the most important stuff.

I attract these boys. Sadly, I am not a flowers person so they are wasted on me. This is the way the world works, no?

I know some of these boys. Unfortunately, they buy these flowers for the girls in their lives. Which is not me. Bastards.

YES! Yes, I firmly believe such guys still exist — and they even cook and do the cleaning.
Sometimes they get wild animals as pets thou, i.e. boars. *pours drink* So there’s a downside to everything. *drinks up*

When I was in 8th grade I bought a rose and a box of chocolates and made a mix cd for this girl I like for her birthday and she totally wouldn’t go out with me because she said ‘she wasn’t dating’ and then like, four days later, she was dating some loser. Then I became gay.
In summary: those boys still exist. I am one of them.

The boything has not bought me flowers for years. He does, however, woo me with sneakers and hard drives, so he is forgiven 😉

I think our friends are married to them all…

My dad buys my mum flowers all the time – does that count? He’s not exactly a boy, though, and I’m pretty sure she had to train him.
AND i just remembered! When I made my communion, when I was about 8, i found a rose inside my little white purse at the end of the day. I can’t guarantee it was a boy, but hey, it looks like there are still romantics out there!

You can’t have it both ways. I buy women flowers all the time, yet I like boys. Doesn’t mean I don’t like grrls, I just buy them flowers 🙂

They exist, sure, and they aren’t all gay.
An ex of mine bought me flowers consistently on a sporadic “Surprise!” basis throughout our 4-year relationship. That was sweet.
My first college boyfriend bought me tulips to apologize whenever he cheated on me. That didn’t work out so good for him, but the flowers were lovely.
In general, IME it’s been typically guys with enough disposable income that they don’t cringe and clutch their wallet over the idea of giving spontaneous, transitory gifts like flowers. I’ve only ever had one starving-artist-type give me flowers (see also: Tulip Douchebag).

HAHAHAHAHA! Yes. Damn it.

Sneakers and hardware totally acceptable replacment for flowers later in a relationship.

THis don’t make any sense. Are you missing a word here?

My ex-husband once brought me flowers and then later confessed that they were actually condolence flowers sent to his work after his co-worker’s daughter’s death and that no one wanted them, so he brought them to me. Classy.

Yes, I sort of have this same trouble.
