I don't expect them and wouldn't want my husband spending his money on flowers on Valentine's Day when their prices have been inflated so much. It always seems like the cost of bouquets doubles on that day of the year. I'm a romantic but I think that is a waste of money. Plus it's hot in Australia in February so flowers would just die.
I'm not in a relationship, and even if I was I would not expect to get flowers. I wouldn't expect to celebrate Valentine's day at all. Anyway, not everyone like flowers, so if you got them, then that might be a sign that your partner does not know you very well.
No, I don't expect them automatically. My husband and I usually do something for Valentines Day but it's not necessarily an exchange of gifts. I'm not sure we'll do anything at all this year because we'll be right in the middle of moving house. Maybe a nice bottle of bubbly to share.
Flowers are definitely a bit exxier around Valentine's Day, and it might be more fun and interesting to think outside the box a bit if you want to do something romantic.
No. The price goes up on Valentines Day and we'd rather spend the money on other things. Also, I like roses but not commercially produced ones because they tend not to have much of a fragrance. I would rather a freshly picked rose from my garden that has a lovely fragrance than a whole bouquet of shop bought ones which have zero.
There is nothing I hate worse than cut flowers. I never understood the point of cutting them off and watching them slowly die inside your house. Would rather plant a tree or a bush or a punnett of flowers in the garden to enjoy for a very long time.
No, I can buy flowers any time I want them, so I don't want them for Valentine's Day. Roses are not the right flowers to give on Valentine's Day anyway, as they don't last very long, in our summer heat! My husband & I have always just exchanged a Valentine's Day card, & we've been married nearly 47 years now! I just love being with him on V.day! (And every other day, come to that!)
