TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese women are fed up with a longstanding
Valentine’s Day custom requiring them to give chocolates to men without getting any in return.
According to an Internet survey, 70 percent of working women said they would be happy if there was no tradition of giving “obligatory chocolates” to their boyfriends or colleagues.
Now they know how Western men feel on Valentines Day! Apart from us free and single ones of course.
In fact giving without receiving is like pretty much every single day in a relationship with a Western Woman.
