As Valentine's Day is slowly approaching (Y-I-K-E-S), we begin to wonder how we are going to be celebrating this over-the-top, grossly romantic holiday honoring Saint Valentine himself. Are you going to have a "Galentine's Day" or a nice romantic dinner with a special someone?

One thing we can all agree on is that no matter what type of relationship you're in, you're going to be consuming mounds of mounds of chocolate. What differs from person to person, though, is what kind of chocolate they are eating. I don't know about you, but I've always wondered what the chocolate you exchange says about the relationship you are in.

Here's my take on how relationships can be defined by chocolate:

1. In a Relationship: Godiva Chocolate

As you and your special someone begin to celebrate your one year anniversary, grab some Godiva Chocolate to go. Making the best chocolate around the world, Godiva's many goodies never fail to impress that special person. From its delicately wrapped packages to its mouth watering chocolate, anyone in a relationship will find Godiva chocolate to be the perfect option.

2. Single and Bitter: Lindt Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate always knows how to cure you on Valentine's Day when you're alone and watching The Notebook on repeat for the twelfth time. Dark chocolate lovers from near and far can all agree that their is something SO satisfying when unwrapping the tinfoil off a piece of dark chocolate. Something surprising about dark chocolate is that it contains tryptophan, a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin that actually makes us happy while curling on a couch crying. As your heart breaks for your ex, just turn to your best friend, Lindt dark chocolate-- which can be bought at a nearby drug store-- for comfort.

3. "I don't know what to call it" Relationship: M&M Milk Chocolate

Have you ever been in a relationship that isn't official? This sounds confusing, but trust me I've encountered a fair share of these so far in my life. You and whoever you like can be considered dating, yet neither of you have made it official. Sounds like a friends with benefits situation, yet a little more complex. This type of relationship can be defined by M&M's. You have a variety of color selections to choose from like your relationship options. Yet, at the same time, there are too many colors where it can be hard to keep track, kind of like your current relationship status.

4. "We just met one month ago, but we're in love": La Maison Du Chocolat

**Rolling eyes**, this is the relationship that I envy the most. How do you find the "perfect someone" in a matter of a month or less? Those legendary, heart-stopping words "I love you" have already been said, yet your three-month anniversary is not even close. This relationship can be defined through the La Maison Du Chocolat brand. This chocolate brand is the true meaning of what this kind of love is all about. Over the top and sometimes--lets be real here-- expensive feeling.

5. The Late-Night:  Drug Store Chocolate

Think of Friends With Benefits, defined by chocolate. Both of you are obviously attracted to each other, yet want no part in a relationship. If this is the case, drug store chocolate is the perfect option. Drug store chocolate treats Valentines Day like every other day of the year with its generic chocolate brand options. For $1.00, your late-night hang out can be sealed with a chocolate like Twix or Reese's.

So wherever you are on Valentine's Day, just remember you can always count on chocolate to lift your spirits. If you're crying your eyes out or snuggling with a special someone, chocolate can be there for all of your ups and downs. Relationships can be a tricky obstacle to navigate, but chocolate makes it a little more bearable and heartwarming.
