How to Have a Great Date/First Date


For a first date is it okay to give a flower or flowers?  I know not to give roses it's too strong of a message.  But I was thinking a single flower maybe a pink tulip, or lily.  I just don't know how to present it to her.  Do I just hand it to her should I put it in a vase.  I just want to make a good impression making her feel special.

Hello, Tom. That's a good question. I believe that giving flowers on a first date is an overkill, unless you already know that girl well before going out with her. Flowers should be reserved for someone who already likes you very much and not for a person that you are just starting to get to know.
