I just had a date with a guy I met online. We’d been texting for a couple of weeks and we just seem to click.
So the other night we went out on a date. He picked me up at my house and insisted we go out to Embargo. When he opened the door for me, there were a half a dozen red roses on the passenger seat.
It kind of caught me off guard. I barely know this guy and he’s bringing me roses? We’d never even spoken on the phone. The date went well and everything, but it felt like he was trying too hard.
I can’t decide whether I think this guy is cheesy for buying me roses. What do you think?

Whether this guy was trying too hard or not…he is a gentleman. He thought enough of you to go out of his way to get the flowers and plan a date at a nice restaurant.
There will be a time when he probably won’t do these things on a consistent basis…you’ll probably miss it. Enjoy it now!
Make no mistake though…flowers or not…you have to get to know him and to see if you’re compatible and to see if you like this man and his other traits and qualities.
Good luck. Keep in touch…I would love to know how it all works out.
