The only way to be happy in a relationship is to be happy alone. Happiness cannot be a by-product of something. It has to be a state of being at an existential level. Once you are happy intrinsically, happiness with a person becomes a choice and not a necessity. Anyone who takes away or erodes your state of being happy should be treated just like you would a piece of furniture: they also exist and must serve some purpose. Whether you use it for that purpose is left to you.
