We actually really love it when our "special man friend" gives us flowers, but our brother site Asylum's resident lady*, Emily McCombs, says that girls don't actually like getting that FTD bear-and-a-mug-full-of-daisies combo jam.

Em thinks giving flowers is "the equivalent of giving that chick you don't know very well a scented candle in Secret Santa." She wants dudes to know that if they really want to impress a girl, they should get her a gift that shows you actually know something about her. (We'll take a mini-pony, thank you very much.)

We say, screw it, flowers are so preeeeeeeeeeeety! But here are Emily's thoughts. Enjoy! (And, by the way, in the comments, tell us where you stand on the debate.)
