    I wish to give a valentine's card to a lady who is a tuff nutt to crack (so to speak). Think she just needs softening up.

    Ordered and received card off t'internet. Front looks like a photo. It's of a small pile of red rose petals and next to it the person's name is spelt out in said petals too. . .very realistic, all done by 'puter you know. Her name is very unique and I doubt many guys will know how to spell it so she'll probably (hopefully) figure out its me.

    The thing is I dont want any mention of "love" in the card's text so was thinking of leaving it blank save for maybe a "X".

    I also had the daft idea of sticking a single freeze-dried rose petal inside as well stuck with a piece of dbl-sided tape.

    Now will this leave her with the impression that my feelings are too strong, and therefore should I forget that idea?
    The impression I want to leave is that I am there for her should she ever want to start something more serious over and above a friendship!?

    I'll allow a half dozen typical GC responses before seeking the truth. :D

    Ah bless..

    I don't get the Valentine's thing - why not just talk to her? ;)

    If you are betting on the card, I'd leave out the double sided sticky tape - let the petals fall on her lap when she opens the card. The tape will just 'lower the tone' and rip the petal when she tries to pick it up.

    Nah if i was going to do the petal it would be just the one as the cover is covered in them (figuratively). Methinks some falling out the card might be overkill? Ok will compromise with you and maybe just the one loose one then.;)

    Go to Clinton cards and get one of those massive 5ft tall ones with the padded silky finish, send it to her at work! If there's one which plays a tune when opened, go for it champ...remember, you're a TIGERRRR!!!

    This is pretty 'sweet' (Yuk!) - it could be kept on her desk at work meaning she'll always be thinking about you.

    Name a Rose


    An elegant, burgundy presentation box containing:

    * A packet of unique, unnamed rose seeds.
    * A registration card and Name a Rose certificate to make your new rose official.
    * A rose growing guide.
    * Rose fertiliser.
    * A written history of roses.
    * An introductory letter.
    * A rose marker and pen to identify your personalised rose.
    * With proper care you should be the proud owner of several healthy, beautiful roses.
    * Box size: 23.5 x 18.5 x 2.5cm.

    She does have incredibly beautiful eyes, so Iguess that could be a subject. Remember I can't/won't mention love.

    Needs to be very short though so as not to overdo it.

    How about

    ". . .For The Girl With The Most Beautiful Eyes. . ."


    :rolleyes:. . .or am i :suicide: myself

    I reckon you should put:

    "I'm here for you should you ever want to start something more serious over and above a friendship!?"

    ;)

    Leave it too subtle & the first you'll know of when she's ready for a relationship is when she starts [-]shagging[/-] seeing someone else!

    Keep it simple and truthful. Say what feel. No need for elaboration when it is not needed.

    P.S. As for flowers, interflora online have never let me down

    For The Girl With The Most Beautiful Eyes
    The first time i saw you, it took me by surprise
    My breath was short, my heart a flutter,
    I was so nervous...acting like a nutter.



    the last line needs some work :rolleyes::D

    Me, I'll take the laughter and her tears
    And make them all my souvenirs
    For where she goes I've got to be
    The meaning of my life is
    She


    Might be a bit strong though :D but i like the song.

    One thing that I always found went down rather well, was a nice hand made envelope.

    Try your local art supply shop for some medium weight paper that has a contrasting pattern printed on both sides (trust me, they'll have some) Then construct the envelope from this, ideally without using glue so it opens up like a flower. Perhaps even using wax as a seal - coloured candle wax is fine, but don't try and pour it directly from the candle, you'll end up with soot mixed in. Use a cleaner flame - from a lighter etc.

    For the inside, i'd try and keep it as simple as possible. :smashin:

    Worked for me, several times :smashin:

    Not to be awkward or anything but does this not make it seem like a...

    "I'll let you know that I like you... but it's down to you to make a move because it's easier for me that way"

    I agree, but I think with this you need to show it more so than say it, give her the impression that you like her and see if she gives you a hint back that she likes you etc...

    Not just put the ball in her court and see what she wants to do about it, personally I think it takes a bit more effort than that.

    I had a go at a poem for you, feel free to use it:

    Your eyes glimmer like the moon reflecting from a midnight lake,
    you illuminate my day with just the briefest glance,
    your mouth so soft and tender like the sweest rose,
    your words stay with me,

    Your rack is fantastic, like a big pair of melons,
    I think about your juggs in bed,
    Your arse is big and round like juicy pear,
    I think of it when I'm with my wife.
