Throwback Thursday: Fresh Prince Of Bel Air' Love Lessons
From hookups to relationships to family love, a few love lessons from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Now this is the story all about how/Our lives got flipped, turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there/I'll tell you what we learned about love from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air! 

Will was born and raised in West Philadelphia. When he moved in with his aunt and uncle in Bel Air, he wreaked havoc on the women of Los Angeles. From hookups to relationships to family love, here are a few love lessons we learned from the beloved 90s comedy: 

Lesson 1. This is how to get rejected by a girl almost immediately — even if you're as smooth as Will:

Lesson 2. This is the perfect way to freak out your significant other if he says you don't wear enough makeup. Go Lisa!

Lesson 3. Getting jiggy with someone? Here's what to do if her hulky man friend is about to walk through the front door:

Lesson 4. You love your mom, but you're also a man and stuff. So wipe that lipstick off your face the minute she walks away!

Lesson 5. Cooking for your significant other and the kitchen goes up in smoke? You should probably have a friend spotting you, or Geoffrey  if you can find him. Thank god for Geoffrey.

Lesson 6. When your cousin is trying to get girls and also dances like this, maybe gently try to intervene.

Lesson 7. When you're stuck in a basement with your girlfriend after an earthquake and find out that she wears a weave, the best thing to do (if you're Will) is to make up humiliating songs about it and embarrass her.

Lesson 8. Don't use pick-up lines like this unless you want to get carried away by a T-Rex.

Lesson 9. She may be your little cousin and you care about her, but her sex life is still none of your business.
