20 ways to blow your declaration of love in Japan


goo Ranking looked this time at how to muck up a declaration of love.


goo Rankings asked iBRIDGE’s Research Plus to conduct this survey, where between the 1st and 3rd of June 2015 500 members, 50:50 male and female, of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire.

I think my own declaration of love went well, although the flowers I gave her died horribly in a far too hot car.
