What is a good kind of flower to give a girl on a first date(and a belated Valentines present)? I was thinking of getting her 1/2 dosen roses 2 red 2 white and 2 yellow. Or should I go with a different kind? or does it not matter at all?

Well...did you want to get her roses..or did you want to get her a different type of flower? Cause I've always advice my brother, whenever he goes on a first date, to get something light-like daisies or a gerber carnations. A bunch of those with some green leaves will look modern and beautiful! To me, roses come on a bit strong..ek ek ek. But it's all up to you . Now...if your mind is set on just getting her roses...I think the whole mixing and mashing is a good idea...red meaning passion, yelow meaning friendship, and i forgot what white means..hehee...But the best thing to do is go to the flower shop, have the lady pull out the different color of roses, bunch it up quickly, and show them to you, if it looks just too tackie, go for the original red roses. WHATEVER you do--DO NOT GET A DOZEN roses...they JUST looook WAAAAAY toooo BIG! (and ugly-eww) hehee...(BTW: my mom is a florist, so I know this stuff..hehee)

Personally, I find roses on a first date to be too scary. I'm with Karina in that I'd go for something lighter, like daisies, carnations, or some kind of lily (not Easter lily things; there are smaller ones). But maybe I'm just shy that way. If someone acts too serious towards me right away, I tend to run screaming. Anyhow, if you buy them at a florist you can ask for help and advice...usually they're good at that.

I think one white rose is nice for a first dat. A white rose symbolizes friendship...or it is pink? Snaps I forgot.

Those links are really interesting! I agree that something light like daisy's would be cool.
