The NAACP red carpet was filled with great love advice (WATCH)

We may talk about love more in February than in any other month, but I think it's safe to say that healthy relationships should be part of our goals all year long — the relationship you have with yourself and the one you have with Ryan Gosling.

Oh, and not to mention, managing actual dates, first loves and breakups or the pressure to "spice things up" amidst screaming kids (confession: I have none), jobs and stress levels that could launch you to Mars (but I have plenty of that).

Point being: Life is hard, love can make it better, but that doesn't make it easy. So we took to the NAACP red carpet last week to ask successful, busy people what love advice has stuck with them over the years.
