Romantic-ish Valentine's Day Advice According to the Johnsons

Valentine's Day is coming up, and whether you are single and looking or happily married, the Johnson family has some pretty useful advice when it comes to attracting the opposite sex. Before you attempt to get (or keep!) a Valentine's date, check out these clips from black-ish for a little lesson in love.


When approaching a potential mate, be confident, compliment them, and then make them jealous. Also, chew on a toothpick – hey, it worked for Ryan Gosling! (From Season 1, Episode 8 of black-ish, "Oedipal Triangle.") 

Pick the most busted-looking wingman. It will help you look like "Denzel Clooney Kodjoe Chestnut." Also, when it comes to movie dates, never pick a movie that makes you cry. (From Season 1, Episode 2 of black-ish, "The Talk.") 


You can only have one #1 at a time. Don't pull a Dre (Anthony Anderson) and try to make two of your loves (i.e. your mother and your wife) your number one at the same time. (From Season 1, Episode 8 of black-ish, "Oedipal Triangle.") 

Don't try to get credit for doing something minor. And if you do, stop right there and avoid an argument. (From Season 1, Episode 4 of black-ish, "Crazy Mom.")
