Valentine’s Day is now just two weeks away. If you don’t win our Frame the Date giveaway, don’t despair. Here’s another chance to win something for your sweetheart that will have you smelling like roses. Quite literally.

Whether you’ve been dating for a month or married for ten years, your lady love will be expecting flowers on V-day. It’s the minimum romantic standard, and thus, will not even bear mentioning by her. This is part of the secret Valentine’s Day Code.

Since giving flowers is so de rigeur, it’s hard to do it in a way that stands out. Enter Flowers for Cancer. Flowers for Cancer is like other flower delivery services-they deliver anywhere in the nation–but here’s the twist: 7% of every purchase goes to cancer research. So your sweetheart will think you are romantic and compassionate! She gets flowers and the world get a bit closer to a cure. The founders of Flowers for Cancer have been personally impacted by cancer and started the company to make a difference. Very cool.

The Giveaway

Flowers for Cancer is giving away two, dozen rose bouquets, arranged in a vase, to two lucky AoM readers.

To enter, just leave a comment sharing the quality you like best about your main squeeze. We’ll randomly draw two comments to win.

Everyone who enters will be emailed a discount code for 5% off any order with Flowers for Cancer at the conclusion of the giveaway.

Giveaway ends Saturday, Feb. 5, 2010 at 10:00 pm CST. Winner will be announced on the AoM Trunk.

My girl and I have been together for two years, we have only spent about five months, here and there, together. We have made it through me going to China, her going to the UK, and now I’m interning in Florida. I’m still in school in Mass and she just graduated from WVU and now works in DC. On average we see each other about every 4-6 weeks for a weekend. She deserves the world, which is more than I can give, but she loves me all the same and for that I am so grateful and I love her.

Her nice child bearing hips :) actually it’s how loving and caring she is.

My Babe has put up with me for 21 years. I say that because for many years…up until recently I haven’t been much of a man for her; more of a big boy than a man. Through all the garbage I’ve dished out, even the worst selfish behavior, she’s remained faithful and true. I’m still only beginning to se her true value…God has truly blessed me with a fantastic woman and mother to our 12 children.

There’s a lot to choose from and my favorite changes all the time, but right now it’s how cute she is when she’s in the process of waking up.

My girl’s empathy has taught me a lot about being a caring, considerate person – two qualities every man should have.

And on the lighter side of things, she is a phenomenal chef and we make dinner together almost every night; learning new recipes with her as a partner is incredible!

Caring and Loving

She’s strong-willed, but ridiculously cute at the same time, and a good conversationalist.

308 John Taylor February 5, 2011 at 11:05 am

She’s kept me alive for almost 34 years — an accomplishment that transcends flowers or any other mundane gift!

I don’t know any man who can say that patience isn’t the quality they love most about his better half. I know that I’m a bonehead on my best days, and the infinite patience my fiancee shows in dealing with that is truly a godsend. Above everything else, her ability to deal with no matter what comes our way not only keeps us going as a couple, but keeps me going as a man as well.

I appreciate the fact that she doesn’t laugh at all my jokes and tells me when I’ve missed the mark…

311 Ron February 5, 2011 at 5:27 pm

My wife has a lot of qualities that I like about her. Her sense of humor is on of the first things that I loved about her. She has a big heart and that has been passed on to our young children. We are preparing for our 4th arrival any day now.

312 Paul McCracken February 6, 2011 at 2:41 am

My wife has seen me at my absolute worst yet still loved me and that is the most humbling thing ever. She is committed to helping me be the best husband and father I can be and she is so patient with me through that process.

313 Heidi C February 6, 2011 at 8:18 pm

I must admit, that I would have liked to have won the flowers for myself!

314 Wei February 8, 2011 at 3:12 am

Being with my girl makes me push myself to become a better person for her.

315 Mark February 8, 2011 at 4:29 am

I would like to win these not for my girlfriend, but for my best friend whom I feel deserves them. Now you may ask why? I have a simple answer, last week her fiance of five years broke up with her. She’s been my best friend for years and I’ve been there with as much support as I can give her, but I would like to give her something special on Valentine’s Day. I would gladly spend the cash, but unfortunately the school I used to work for had cutbacks and had to let me go so money has been tight. Help me out AoM!

316 Marilyn Wons February 8, 2011 at 1:03 pm

What I like best about my husband is his caring and sensitivity toward people.

317 Tyler February 9, 2011 at 12:19 am

Wei said it best! Great post.

318 Mitch MCFadden February 9, 2011 at 11:23 am

My girl is compassionate and caring. She treats me well, at times when no one else would.

319 Terry February 9, 2011 at 1:15 pm

My wife and I have been together for over 11 years and married for 8; the thing that still astounds me is how smart she is.

320 Carl February 13, 2011 at 7:42 am

Do I have to say more, 41 years of love to the same adorable person.
