"Let's spend tonight apart!”
Horoscopefriends is here to give you some ideas about how to have fun when your significant other is not around - and they're all based on their star sign!
You may be madly in love with your squeeze, but spending some time apart every once in a while can never be a bad thing. In fact, it can actually benefit your relationship by helping you steer clear of some of the most common pitfalls that can spell its demise, namely possessiveness and over-attachment. No-one can deny that the right amount of jealousy goes a long way towards keeping desire alive. But overly possessive or controlling behaviour is never a sign of a healthy relationship. And the same holds true for over-attachment; being joined at the hip with one's other half will more often than not lead to one or both partners feeling stifled and bored. So, no matter how much you may love your partner or enjoy spending time with them, you can still have fun without them! Besides, no star sign is flawless, so chances are that neither of you will mind taking a short break from each other. Here's a list of the things you can enjoy when your significant other is not around based on their star sign!
Five reasons to be happy when your other half is not around…based on their Star-Sign!
