All the world loves a lover.
And when there's a lovers' tiff, everyone wants to jump in with words of wisdom.
Sometimes, the advice works.
Sometimes, it doesn't.
We invite you, dear readers, to share the best and worst relationship advice you have received.
Love can be easy, difficult, infuriating, romantic, sustaining, impossible... The list of adjectives, when it comes to matters of the heart, can be endless.
And while every story comes with its fuzzy, warm tales that make you go Awww!, they also come with seemingly unbearable struggles and roadblocks.
And these begin when the initial rose-tinted honeymoon period fades and the practicalities of life take the front seat.
It could be that you belong to two different castes, communities, states and everyone you love is against your relationship.
It could be that you come from two very different economic strata.
It could be that, when the first flush of romance fades, you realise you are very different from each other... but you still love each other.
A jealous ex may be trying to burst your bliss.
Your best buddies may not like your partner, and vice versa.
Or your families may just not be willing to accept her/him.
As your priorities change, there will be disagreements and uncomfortable moments.
But true love, as they say in the movies and the books, always finds a way. And miracles come in the form of unforgettable advice that you received as you tackled the obstacles to your relationship, and leaped over the roadblocks.
There's also advice you've received that may have worked against you and your relationship.
With Valentine's Day around the corner, we are asking you, dear readers, to share the best and worst relationship advice you've received.
Who gave you the advice and what did you learn from it?
