People always tend to over-think or over-analyze everything when it comes to their romantic relationship, especially during the early stages.  Here is one over-thought, anxious move that many women will be making this weekend:  searching the meaning of different colored roses online.

I'll admit, I've fallen victim to this game of trying to look beyond what "he" actually says into his actions.  Men are generally pretty straight-forward, if they're into you, they'll let you know.  If they're not into you, they're probably not buying you a dozen roses, or any flowers for that matter.  Last year for Valentine's Day, my man sent me a dozen white roses to work.  He even did all of the dirty work himself, no delivery man.  He went to the florist, picked out the arrangement, drove the flowers to my office and found a co-worker of mine in the lobby to have her deliver them to me.  Amazing gesture.  What did I do?  Well, I searched "meaning of white roses" online.  I was so worried because they weren't red.  Red roses mean "I love you."  I asked a bunch of co-workers if white roses meant friendship.  Google told me that they meant eternal love and that white roses meant the deepest love, deeper than red roses.  Dummy.  I'm done over-analyzing everything.  This year for Valentine's Day, I'm receiving a remote car starter.  Let's not try to analyze that.
