Yes, you read that right. Always remember to live your life! You're your own person, and you need to also cater to your wants and needs. Find things to do for you. Is your partner allergic to seafood? Go out to a nice seafood restaurant with friends and experience things you can't always do when you are together. Is your significant other afraid of scary movies? Head to the local cinema to see what scary movies are playing and enjoy something for yourself. Being in love and being with someone sometimes causes us to lose track of ourselves, so take this time apart to learn something new about yourself and enjoy it to the fullest.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, so you should have fun and make the most of your own time. And respect them when they do the same. You'll be stronger individuals, and in turn a stronger couple, because of it.
