Have I Told You I Love You Lately?: 5 Great Relationship Tips From TGT

Call us crazy, but we’re swept up in all things TGT.

As we patiently wait for the group’s debut effort (and their Centric takeover this weekend), let’s take a look back at a few of Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank’s best love lessons through lyrics. Are you up to par?

"Have I told you I love you (lately)/Have I told you, you still mean the world to me…" (Tyrese – “Lately”)

There’s no quicker way to kill the passion in your relationship than to get lax with your love. Let your partner know on a daily basis that you care and appreciate them through words and actions. Sweet sentiments shouldn’t be reserved for the “honeymoon” phase; keep the fire alive by consistently showing him/her that they play an important role in your life.  

"Don’t wanna fuss and fight no more/Don’t give a damn about the score…" (Ginuwine – “Last Chance”)

During times of conflict, we often get distracted by who’s right, who’s wrong or the dreaded “score.” Take the time to step outside of the fight and analyze exactly what is causing a rift between you and your partner. Does it really matter? Will it change the course of your relationship? If the answer is no, let it go.

"I can’t make you love me, if you don’t/You can’t make your heart feel something it won’t…" (Tank – “I Can’t Make You Love Me”)

Prolonging a relationship that has reached its expiration date is never healthy. If the feelings are gone and the love is lost, don’t force what isn’t meant to be. Sure, it’s easier said than done when dealing with longtime lovers, but would you rather be "just okay" or "blissfully happy?"

"What’s on my mind/Just clear out your schedule/’Cause I need some time…" (TGT – “Sex Never Felt Better”)

We’ll keep this one PG. Carve out the time to cater to your partner—however you see fit.

"Now I know, it ain’t ever worth your heart/And it ain’t ever worth your tears…" (TGT – “I Need”)

Let’s face it: relationships are never easy, but the great ones are always worth it. Don’t taint a one-of-a-kind love with lies, cheating, foolish pride or anything that could compromise a strong connection with your partner.
