    Why only red roses are gifted to a girl you love?

    Is there a reason only red roses are gifted to a female friend you are in love with? Why not roses of other colors or different flowers for that matter?

    Traditionally, red represents love because of the heart.  Hearts are red.  But it doesn't matter what the rule books say.  Break away from that.  Be unique.  Breaking away from traditionalism in gift giving shows not only creativity but that thought and time went into finding something "different", just like the person who is accepting the gift.  smile

    Red roses are supposed to symbolize love and romance.  They are a way to say that you love the person you are giving them to.  White roses symbolize happiness.  Yellow roses symbolize friendship.

    Traditionally each flower is symbolic and those symbols seem to be firmly in place, even today.  In this "language of flowers", red roses can signify passionate love, which is why they are so often given by suitors to the women they are pursuing.

    To people who are very sensitive to these meanings, a "misread" can create a bit of havoc.  For instance, if you want to say "thank you" to a co-worker and  decide to send her a single red rose, you could have a new admirer...smile  (Probably better to stick to a nice arrangement of mixed flowers and play it safe.

    By the way, you can send the girl you love flowers other than roses.  Not many women would say no to a lovely bunch of spring flowers or a bouquet of fall flowers.  But when you want to say, "I love only you", nothing does it like red roses.
