It seems today that many men think they are something they are not

Too often before entering my 20's did I find many people I knew from high school having babies already, or had babies. While there is a slim chance some parents may be able to support a child before 20, it is a daunting task no matter how you look at it, and to make matters worse there are fathers out there that are completely non existent in their new child's lives. You might consider yourself a man automatically after you have a kid, but if you still have that boy mentality, you can't consider yourself shit.

Children need both their parents, it's a fact of life and fathers (men) can become legends. They will continue to be vital in this world as long as there is life on this earth. We need more men, more than ever. Will you choose to be a man over a boy? Or do you consider yourself a man already? Here is one way to be a man and convey messages and feelings as a man, to a woman. Being able to show how you feel through beautiful objects is a miracle. No one wants to spend eternity alone. You can't beat an eternity spent with your best friend can you? Make sure that person is your wife. But can it all start from a flower? You tell me.

Love is the flower you've got to let grow.

A truthful quote from none other than John Lennon.

The following flowers convey different messages and meanings, which I will write in the caption. All of the flowers and meanings are from the excellent book called The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man. I highly recommend this book as it is very helpful and will definitely make you laugh. You can get it on Amazon at the bottom of this article.

Want more?

The book has many other flowers and their meanings, I just wanted to give you a sampling of some. You'll also find out when to give flowers. Think Valentine's day and your anniversary are the only times flowers are mandatory? I think not!
