How Many Roses Should I Give Her?

Did you know that the exact number of roses you give a girl is sending a very specific message? Use this handy guide to make sure you send the right one!
Numbers and Meanings

A Single Rose

Giving a single rose can have two meanings depending on where you are in your relationship. If you just started seeing her, a single rose is an opening romantic gesture ... a way of saying “I love you” for the first time without actually using those words. If you are already in a well established romantic relationship, it is a special way of saying “I still love you” by recreating the first time you told her.

Two Roses

When you give two roses, one flower represents you and the other represents her. It is a symbol of mutual love and affection. Giving someone two roses early in your dating relationship could be a bit presumptuous however, so be sure the feeling is mutual before making this romantic gesture.

A Dozen Roses

When you’re ready to start dating that someone special exclusively, giving her 12 roses is a fitting accompaniment to your request. Alternatively, you could send them to her ahead of time as a precursor to what you’ll ask her later. Once you are seeing only each other, a dozen roses becomes the new baseline for your romantic gestures.

Eleven Roses

Chances are in favor of you finding occasion to give a single rose, or even a dozen roses, to more than one girl over the years. However, if you’re lucky, there will come a time when you find yourself with a girl where the word love begins to take on a different meaning than all those other times you said it. When this time comes, giving her eleven roses tells her that she is truly special to you: the treasure of your life.

Fifteen Roses

Let’s face it, when she’s mad it doesn’t really matter if you actually did anything wrong or not: You’re going to apologize for whatever you did or didn’t do because she is going to be angry until you apologize for whatever you did or didn’t do. Adding three roses to the standard dozen is for when you need to use the words “I am sorry.”
