  valentine choco
by cheesecake17

In Japan, the custom is for women to give chocolate to their lovers or men that they want to date..

There is also a thing called Girichoco(obligation chocolate). On Valentine's day, women are not just expected to give chocolate to their significant other but
to all of their co-workers as well, and any man who is given Girichoco on Valentine's day, is expected to reciprocate on White Day. but that never happen..:)))
