Five Valentine’s Day Flowers and What They Supposedly Mean
Giving red roses on Valentine’s Day is kind of ‘safe,’ so some guys like to branch out- but beware. The magazine Marie Claire says the flowers you get might be sending the wrong message. Clearly this is total nonsense and I say we thank Marie Claire for adding even more anxiety to a holiday that already has enough. Remember- getting any kind of flowers on Valentine’s Day is better than not getting any at all! But, if you’re curious, here’s the ‘secret’ meaning behind five popular types of flowers.
They mean he’s hopelessly in love with you, but he’s worried you’re not that too into him.
They supposedly represent “refined beauty”, but “Marie Claire” also says they make your man look pretentious. (I’m no expert, but I love orchids and my husband is anything but pretentious.)
If you’re thinking about picking up some of these, keep in mind that this flower represent “a mother’s love”, so they’re more appropriate for Mother’s Day than Valentine’s Day.
It’s actually an herb, but it’s used as filler in bouquets. And according to “Marie Claire”, it represents “lust”, and means he’s more interested in making out than in having a meaningful relationship.
They look kind of like carnations and represent “shame and bashfulness” so they might represent that your guy is having affair. Personally, I’d be pretty happy with some peonies. I think they’re gorgeous!
