In her post on Facebook, Mikaa shared her wisdom on keeping a relationship happy.

"It doesn't always have to be white linen tablecloths and candles," she wrote. "Women: BE appreciative. Men: BE consistent with staying consistent. If he brought me a rock every Friday, I'm starting a rock collection If he wants to sell ice cream, I'm scooping however he chooses to express his love, I'm accepting."
