Dating Tips Advice Column:
What do Rose Colors Mean?

 

Dear Dating Tips,
I want to get my girlfriend a dozen roses and I've heard that the color of the rose has different meanings. What do they mean? ~Rose Color Curious


Dear Rose Color Curious,

Yes, it is indeed true that each rose color has its own unique meaning. This presents a great opportunity to send a message along with your thoughtful gift. Here are the color meanings:

Red Rose
This one is the most obvious. It means "I love you." It represents romance and love.

Deep Pink
This simply means "thank you". If someone you know does something nice for you, a deep pink rose is a good way of saying "thank you".

Regular Pink
A pink rose represents happiness. It's great to give a pink rose to a partner to say, "I'm very happy with our relationship."

Light Pink
A light pink rose means "sympathy". When someone has had a loss then light pink roses is a very nice way of expressing your condolences.

White Rose
A white rose symbolizes innocence and purity. When combined with red roses (see further down), it represents "unity".

Yellow Rose
A yellow rose symbolizes friendship and caring. It's the perfect innocent gift to give to a friend or give to a loved one when you simply want to say "I care". When given to a friend it also means "I'm happy with our friendship."

Lavender Rose
A lavender rose is a symbol of "falling in love". When you give it to a person you are saying "I have fallen in love with you and am enchanted by you."

Orange Rose
An orange rose is a symbol of desire. "I desire you" or "I desire to get to know you better" is the message that orange roses send.

Black Rose
Never ever give a woman a black rose, because Hollywood has, unfortunately, made out the meaning to be "death". These aren't easy to find and some maintain that they don't actually "exist".

Blue Rose
A blue rose is very hard to reproduce or find, although some floral companies are trying to do it naturally. Others just dye them. To some a blue rose symbolizes "mystery" and to others "attaining the impossible". A blue rose given can symbolize the rarity of your partner. You have attained the impossible.

Mixture of White and Red Roses
When you deliver white and red roses together to someone, it is a symbol of unification and unity. "May we always be together as one."

If you want to be creative, you can combine some of the above roses to send several messages at once. For example, send lavender and orange roses to say that you are falling in love with the person and desire to know them even more. Provide yellow and pink roses combined to let a grieving friend know you care and are sorry for their hardship and loss.

Another tip - and this one is from DateGifts.com - buy 11 roses of one color and then 1 of a contrasting color. Provide them to your girlfriend and let her know that she is unique and that's one of the many reasons you love her. She stands out amongst all women and you are honored to have her in your life.

Here's an example: Get her 11 deep pink colored roses and one red rose. Deep pink means "thank you". You can then say, "thank you for being unique. I love you." Or give her 11 pink roses and one blue rose to say, "I am very happy with our relationship and thankful that I have attained such a rare gem as you."

The best part about this is that women know how much thought is put into a gift and the way you present your roses will have an amazing impact.

I highly commend you for the thought you are giving in delivering your roses to a very special woman. ~ The Dating Tipster
