Chic's old pal Alan Cumming is back with the answers to life's greatest challenges.

Dear Alan,
What's the best gift to give my Valentine?

I have to say I think the whole Valentine's Day thing is a crock of commercialised shit. Shouldn't you be kind and considerate and loving to your partner all the time, and not just when the retail industry is in a mid-season slump and tells you to so it can screw you out of more cash for shitty chocolates and vomit-inducing sentiments on greetings cards?  Let's all be crazy and start a love revolution this year: don't buy any of that red crap and just tell your partner you love them every day, and make a little bit of time every day to remember why you wanted to be with them in the first place, or tell them why you can't remember. 

Dear Alan,
My boyfriend likes to collect all sorts of clutter and chotchkies, where as I like the minimalist look. How will we ever move in together?  

Honestly, it's not looking good.  Maybe your minimalist approach doesn't only apply to your decor taste?

Dear Alan,
Every time a boy shows genuine interests in me, I run for the hills. What's my problem? 

You get turned off by boys who are into you because you aren't into yourself.  You need to look at that, because until you do and begin to believe that you are worthy of others' genuine interest, you're going to f*ck with a lot of people's heads and you're going to be lonely.  Swim in lake you for a bit, the water's lovely.

Dear Alan,
My neighbor has a dog that barks all day long, and I work from home. I'm sick and tired of this! 

Of course you should say something if it is affecting your work!  The owners probably have no idea the dog is doing this, and I am sure after a quick chat with a dog trainer they could start the process to make it stop. Speak up, or people will stop listening!
