One big defference is that men do nothing!! What do you mean by that? Regularly, men do not give anything to their girl freinds or better half including letters. Ofcorse, then can, but few people do it so litterally, they do nothing? Then, you might think that when do men express their affection?? No worries. We have White Day on 3/14 instead? On the day, they give their lovers chocolates and tell them appriciation.

Hopefully, that custom is changing. And a new type of Valentine's day has been perminating society.
