  3. Flowers make you sexier.  Yes:  Flowers make you sexier.  In a recent study,  men were shown paired with flowers, and the flowers made them significantly more attractive.
  4. Flowers speak a secret language.  In Victorian times, flowers were used as a secret code to show how a man felt about a woman.  One friend received flowers with a card explaining how the flowers related to how he felt about her.  Worked like a charm!
  5. Even an inexpensive bouquet of flowers earns you points.  Do you know anyone who doesn't appreciate flowers, large or small?

  8. Giving flowers makes you look good.  In addition to appearing sexier, flowers make you look good in other ways.  A study at Rutger University found that men who gave flowers are perceived as happy, achieving, strong, capable, and courageous.  How's that for advertising?!
  9. Flowers: the numbers are in your favor.  Here you go:  92% of women remember the last time they received flowers; 88% said a gift of flowers enhances their mood; 83% said they they like to receive flowers unexpectedly; 86% said receiving flowers makes them feel special; and 99% said that a person who give flowers is thoughtful.  What more can we say?!
  10. Women love flowers!  In yet another study, virtually 100% of women who were presented with flowers as a gift smile a true, heartfelt (or "Duchenne") smile.  Unless she's allergic, women love flowers.
