Keep your outside #interests and #relationships alive.

Young, naïve lovers tend to let everything else in their lives go when they are in love. Older people need to learn better. Due to the exciting love hormones, the initial passion you feel may last for two to three years, and it’s natural that while it does, you’ll want to spend as much time as possible with your new love interest. But just like anything you pursue in life without properly pacing yourself, over-indulging carries the risk of leading to burnout.

Other facets of your life are meant to keep you whole and balanced. Only when two complete individuals join together can they have something real. If you are seeking your other half, you need to be balanced and well-rounded yourself.
