    I have been talking/dating this girl for about a month now and she recently became pretty sick and might be laid up for a couple of days. I don't have the time to go see her right now, but I thought about sending her a get well bouquet of flowers. Is it too soon for that? It seems like a nice thing to do, but also seems kinda creepy...

    if you guys have kissed, its never to early for flowers.

    Try a card with a little picture of the two of you or something.

    Flowers are lame and cliche.

    It might seem that way to you but from my experiences, ALL women love flowers.

    I'm not much of a flower person for holidays, birthdays, or anniversaries because they're not really something much thought is put into BUT nothing is better than receiving flowers when you're sick or going through a rough patch. Really makes you feel special and cared about.. :bigthumb:

    if you're having doubts about it, then don't. you're already concerned with how it will make you appear. it is a nice gesture and should be done as such, but not in order to make you appear nice. a genuinely nice gesture is hardly ever creepy. when you're trying to come off as a nice guy, then it becomes creepy.

    a phone call or get well soon card will suffice for now.

    I don't think that's creepy. I love to get flowers when I don't feel good or for no reason at all. Makes me feel kind of special. Besides, it's the thought that counts right?

    BTW, flowers are NOT lame and cliche!!!!!! They are sweet and thoughtful.

    If you're not sure, perhaps you could send some kind of non-blooming plant. That way it shows acknowledgement without getting too personal :dunno:

    Additionally, if she's sick, perhaps any fragrant plants might set her back a bit. You didn't say what was wrong, but I know when I am not feeling well I don't want to be around perfumes, flowers or other scents.

    A card, or one flower.

    Its the THOUGHT behind the gift, not the expense, that counts.:)

    Just NOT roses. For the love of god, not cliche roses. Get her a nice bouquet of wildflowers or something original.

    you don't even need flowers to get the same reaction.

    for instance, I showed up at my mom's place to pick my snowboard up and I saw that the kitchen was well.. dirty. I cleaned it up with enough time to make it to class and my mom called up and left a long voicemail telling me how impressed she was and how it clearly made her day.

    Be genuine and without a doubt, they'll appreciate anything you do for them.

    Came in to post this. For many, roses take away from the intention because they often feel forced, or the standard. They take no thought because people attach them to love.

    Unless theyre her favorite flower (happens) then by all means. But otherwise, pick your favorite flower (yes, guys are allowed to have them too) along with a card that mentions getting them for her because they always help you feel better.

    It will diffuse any possibility of 'too soon' as well as giving her more about you which should help you two stay connected while she is bedridden.

    Not creepy, send them, but choose a variety without strong scent, not something sentimental and romantic. Something along the lines of "Get well, thinkin' of you". Don't spend much money -- 10-15 bucks at most.

    It's NEVER to early to get flowers. Stay away from carnations though.
