Secret Meanings Behind 5 Types Of Flowers:
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 pick might send the wrong message.
#1.) Yellow Tulips.
They mean you're hopelessly in love with her, but you're worried she's not that into you.
#2.) Orchids. They supposedly represent "refined beauty", but "Marie Claire" also says they make you look pretentious.
#3.) Pink Carnations. They represent "a mother's love", so they're more appropriate for Mother's Day than Valentine's Day.
#4.) Coriander. It's actually an herb, but it's used as filler in bouquets. And according to "Marie Claire", it represents "lust".
#5.) Peonies. They look kind of like carnations and represent "shame and bashfulness" . . . so your woman might think you're having an affair. (???)
Anyway . . . let's thank "Marie Claire" for adding even more anxiety to a 'holiday' that already has enough. And remember: Buying ANY kind of flowers on Valentine's Day is better than not buying them at all.
