Why Don’t More Women Buy Men Flowers?

Once upon a time I received flowers as a gift from a significant other. While the roommates I had then gave me hell about it, I thought it was a nice gesture. Yeah, I like motorcycles, loud muscle cars, cigars, and whiskey, but can't a guy appreciate flowers too? I mean, I'm not a total ignorant mouth breather. I personally only know of maybe two or three guys who have received flowers as a "just because" gift.
I will say that I don't generally like it when people buy me things, holidays and birthdays for example, I prefer if the gift is skipped because in the nicest way possible, I buy myself better things. I buy what I want because I know what I like, if someone wants to give me something, buy me food, or just have flowers delivered, sandwiches work well too and one other unmentionable because I want to keep my job. I won't scoff at flowers is my point in all of this, I won't be embarrassed, I'll be impressed and thankful. Plus, it's not like someone buying me clothes, I won't have a chore of returning it to get what I want.
In this day and age anyway, you can't judge me for liking or wanting flowers, if you do, you're a bigot according to the offended by everything internet millennials.
I write this because I received a rose yesterday and to me, it's a meaningful gesture that I won't soon forget. Maybe because it's a rare gesture to me, a not so common gift for a guy. I'm also a hang them upside down and dry them out kind of person so they are around a lot longer than a week. If you're a guy, has anyone bought you flowers? Ladies, do you ever buy them for your guy?
