In the age of social media, is Valentine’s Day getting a bad rap?
Social media was created to bring people together, but it seems that the use of non-verbal communication has created a world where texting or chatting online is the norm, while calling is used only to clear up what was said in a text.

People ‘instagram’ their feelings and ‘subtweet’ their loved ones these days to get their point across, and instead of arguing face to face, they do it online for an audience.

[FLASHBACK:?T.I. and Tiny + Other Couples Cover Ebony Magazine’s 2013 ‘Black Love’ Edition (PHOTOS)]
David and Tamela Mann, aka Mr. Brown & Cora from Tyler Perry’s ‘Meet The Browns,’ are my favorite of the three couples who cover this year’s ‘Black Love’ issue and I feel they deserve the top spot in this post after maintaining a 25 year marriage.
The cute couple revealed?how they maintain the passion in their relationship, stating:
Stay in love because when you?re in love, it covers a multitude of fault. Our relationship wasn?t based on good sex or having a lot of money. It was based on just straight friendship. That?s what has kept us.? ?David Mann
?I pray and ask God to keep my heart and my eyes burning only for David Mann. I speak his name in my prayers, because I want the desire to stay, so when he touches me, I get chills.? ?Tamela Mann
The other two couples covering the Ebony’s February 2014 ‘Black Love edition are Lala Vasquez and her hubby Carmelo Anthony and Mariah Carey and her hubby Nick Cannon.

[DISCLAIMER from ATLien: I just can’t seem to get it together today, so I called my friend Bob Whitfield and asked for a Valentine’s Day post. While I don’t necessary agree with much of Mr. Whitfield’s views about love & relationships, I can definitely appreciate that he has the guts to write about ’em considering his very public circumstances surrounding his ex.
That being said… on this day of L.O.V.E. and romance, I hope that someone around you cares enough to give you the very best… of whatever they have to offer.? So without further adieu, read Bob Whitfield’s most recent relationship rant and feel free to share your thoughts…]
Valentine’s Day is dedicated to those who give love and is not determined by what love will be returned to them. It is for those who are determined NOT to hate because surely only hate will return.

This day may come at the perfect time to reiterate what love can build yet be hated for the love that has been lost.
In relationships, Valentines Day can be Love and Hate at the same damn time…

Rumors of their demise have been greatly exaggerated!
While Keyshia Cole was talking ish online last week about Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child (click HERE if you missed that), the net was buzzing about Cole’s relationship with husband Daniel “Booby” Gibson being on the rocks.
Fast forward a few days and we find that Cole still doesn’t care much for Williams… but on a lighter note,? the rumor mill may have been wrong about Cole and Gibson’s impending separation.
Booby tweeted out a few photos of he and Keyshia appearing quite lovey dovey and offered clarification with the following statement:
