It's been said that men don't always feel comfortable sharing their feelings or expressing their emotions. However, there is one language men can use to their advantage when stealing a woman's heart. The secret language of flowers.
The Victorian era is when flower language really became popular. A bouquet of flowers could contain a whole message for a love interest to interpret. Even though the language is not well known today, one can achieve nearly the same affect. Without saying a word, flowers can convey deep affection, honor, devotion, or friendship – the possibilities are endless.
One underrated way to give flowers is by giving a corsage. This small arrangement of flowers is typically worn on a band around the wrist or pinned on a woman's dress. Usually reserved for school proms and weddings, corsages could also be given on Mother's Day, birthdays, anniversaries, or other meaningful dates. Giving a corsage to someone indicates they are a guest of honor or having a special occasion worthy of recognition.
According to a study done by researcher Jeannette Haviland-Jones of Rutgers University, flowers bring universal delight and excited gratitude in all age groups. There is no easier way to boost happy emotions and lower stress than to receive flowers.
