23. Have Outside Interests
It's unfair to make your partner the go-to person for all your needs — that's a lot of responsibility! Make sure you have your own separate world filled with interests, hobbies, and friends, so you don't solely rely on them for your happiness. That feeling should come from the inside, not from another person, and your relationship will be stronger if you follow that rule of thumb.

Find your hobbies, earmark a few hours a week to break away and focus on your passion projects, an meet up with other people who share your own interests, whether that's a book club, sports club, or meetup group. That way you will have something new to talk about each week rather than staying in each other's pockets.
