Response to Flowers behind ear

Same as that wedding ring - left your spoken for - the right - free and available!

The flower behind the left ear means your heart is taken. This is because your heart is located to the left of your body. Behind the right ear means you are single and looking!!

It's left for Married,right for single and the center for confused or cheeting.

flower in your right ear means your single and flower in your left ear means your taken... if your wondering why it isn't the opoosite way this is why... having the flower in your left ear means taken because your left ear is closer to your heart...
