Study Links Romance with Flowers

because it’s merely traditional?

Well, according to a new study out of coming out of the University of South Brittany in France, Flowers absolutely do have a lasting affect on romance, and a powerful one at that!

The study shows that women are substantially more susceptible to the advances of men while in the presence of flowers, even if the flowers are not a focal point of the conversation or even a gift from him to her!

Men, instructed to approach women and attempt to get their phone number for eventual romantic contact were found to be far more efficient and successful at their task when the targeted women were located in the presence of flowers than anywhere else!

The test results yielded a 25% success rate when approaching women who were found purchasing flowers alone, as opposed to a mere 10% success rate when approaching women who were in the process of purchasing a nice new pair of shoes.

About Lesley Lowry

I love flowers! I enjoy growing them, learning about them and I love creating bouquets of freshly cut flowers. In our climate where it's winter most of the time, the growing season is way too short, so I have started this blog to get my fix all winter! I encourage you to post regularly on this blog, especially if you're lucky enough to live in a warm climate and can grow flowers all year long. I intend to post a lot of interesting facts and fun stuff about flowers, as well as info on many varieties of flowers.
