St Valentine Advice to any guy who is unsure…

Actually, we do give them a bon bon to taste, and this keeps them distracted long enough to get our job done with graceful efficiency.

These days, I include those are secretly smitten or want to be swept away by someone who is smittenish in their twittering or texting while buying bon bons.

The message of chocolate portrayed in it’s most fundamental nature – is LOVE

My only advice is this-
