As I reflect on my past experiences in dating, I can’t help but think that there are so many nuances, expectations, and traditions that people seem to be unaware of. That’s why I’ve decided to start writing blog posts about these lessons that I’ve learned over the years. One such lesson is the importance of bringing flowers to someone you are dating when they are performing on stage. While it may seem like a small gesture, it can mean so much to the person you are dating. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of this tradition, and I’ve personally experienced feeling left out when my dates didn’t bring me flowers while other performers received them. While it may seem silly or shallow, it’s a tradition that can make someone feel special and appreciated, and it’s worth sharing.
It’s not about the material value of the flowers themselves, but rather the thoughtfulness and support behind them. It can be a small gesture that goes a long way in making someone feel loved and appreciated. Whether it’s a dance recital, theater performance, or music gig, a bouquet of flowers can be a wonderful way to show your support and admiration.
Here are some tips on how to do it right:
- Choose the right flowers: Consider the occasion, the person’s favorite colors, and the type of performance they are giving when choosing flowers. Avoid anything too strong-smelling or distracting, as it may interfere with the performance. Roses, lilies, and daisies are popular choices that are both beautiful and appropriate.
- Timing is key: Make sure to arrive early enough to catch your date before the show starts. If you can’t, you can always arrange to leave the flowers with the box office or stage manager to be delivered backstage. Just make sure to include a note with your name and a message of encouragement. You can also give the flowers at the end of the show because it might be distracting for the performer.
- Be discreet: While it’s a lovely gesture to bring flowers, it’s important not to make a spectacle of yourself. Keep your interaction brief and don’t disrupt the show. After the performance, you can give your date a big hug and congratulate them on a job well done.
- Consider other ways to show support: If bringing flowers isn’t practical or appropriate, consider other ways to show your support. A thoughtful text message or a small gift can be just as meaningful.
Remember, the most important thing is to show your date that you are proud of them and excited to see them perform. With a little thought and consideration, bringing flowers can be a beautiful way to express your feelings.
Hope that helps! ^_^
