France is a country where a conventional date is not in common like in other countries. However couples become lovers and are developing their relationships in a less formal way. A French cheese, wine and baguette under the Eiffel Tower is enough. That can be a great idea for Valentine's day, too!

2. Netherlands

3. Italy

Normally boys should open the door to let girls in the apartment or in the restaurant. Not in Italy! To protect the woman from any unexpected danger the man has to enter the room first.

4. India

Australian teenager do not date each other until they get 18 or 19 years old. It is also common that the girl is asking a boy for a date and not the other way around. Girls usually pay the bills when couples are going out. Normally Australians meet their crush on the beach or at a barbie (BBQ). Valentine gifts are steaks or sun cream. Just kidding!

A boy must at least spend twice the amount of money then the girl on "Valentine's Day".
