Happy Valentine's Day- Here's some unsolicited advice for you!

Folks, can I be honest? I could really care less about Valentine's Day. To me it's just another commercial holiday that preys on people's vulnerabilities. Look at how many businesses shove products and services geared towards this day in your face. Yep, I'm ma going ahead and say it: Valentine's Day sucks! I really don't need a day to help me celebrate my love with my beau. We do that 365 days of the year Honey!

But....if you celebrate the fourteenth of February please don't let me rain on your parade. So Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Since we are talking about love, I thought I would introduce 5 tips on love. I'm not an expert, but I've picked up a few things here and there that I'd like to share with you. Who doesn't love a little unsolicited advice?

1. No matter what you do never EVER chase the wedding instead of the marriage. This little nugget of info is pretty self explanatory. In the quest for love don't be in an frenzied rush to walk down the aisle that you neglect to fully understand what the concept of marriage really means. Single Ladies and Gents, I beg, take your time; date, court and woo each other and then decide whether or not you want to take the plunge.

2. Never be insecure in a relationship. If you find yourself checking cell phones, emails or incessantly questioning your mate, you may need to re-evaluate your relationship. Trust is the foundation of any sound and stable relationship. Without that extremely important component, trust me when I tell you that you have nothing.

3. Do keep things spicy and hot in a relationship. Never let your relationship get dull or boring. It's important to keep the romance alive by trying new things and telling your partner years into the union that they still tickle your fancy.

4. Keep your friends. I've seen many people in relationships make this fatal mistake. When your single you are the life of the party, but the minute you get boo'd up you are harder to find than Brad Pitt's manhood...lol OK that was a joke but you understand what I mean here. Just because you have that special someone it doesn't mean you alienate your friends. Life is all about balance.

5.Do love yourself first. I can honestly say that at one point or another everyone struggles with self love. In instances were people don't value themselves they can tend to end up in relationships that can turn out to be detrimental. Love yourself first and wholly. As Oprah said on her last show "Jerry Maguire' was just a movie. No one completes you" Oh Mama O, you are so wise!

What other tips on love do you have?
