It is customary  that a girl gives chocolates to a boy who she likes as a implicit connfession of falling love with him on the Saitnt Valentine’s Day falling on Feb,14th in Japan. However,  nowadays young people have ideas different from such conventional idea.  A lot of  female Japanese now have “various types for dofferent purposes” of  chocolates that they give to others, such as, “tomo-choco”(chocolates for their friends), “Kazoku-choco”(chocolates for their families), and kind of toraditional “Giri-choco”‘(obigatory chocolates for their bosses or coworkers and so forth).Acording to a certain survey,  90.2 % of the chocolates that female junior or senior-high school  students have gived this year were “tomo-chico”.   That may mean young females may tend to make much of  firendships between or among girls’ community sometimes rather than love relationships with males..?
