Okay, so this one doesn't have to be about stuff that significant. Maybe it's more like what to have for dinner that night, or who gets to choose the movie you watch. It's the little things that add up to have a big impact on partner and relationship happiness.
Surround yourself with people who can offer you support. We lived in Connecticut when I was growing up, far from our biological family, who lived in the Midwest. But we lived on a street with several families who became our "Connecticut family," and with whom we shared holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions.

Tyreese is always willing to pitch in and help his friends, and unlike pain the ass Carl Grimes or basic bitch Beth Greene, he does a lot more than eat pudding or sit around singing "Kumbaya" like there isn't a zombie apocalypse happening.
You know how most millennial men supposedly can't change a tire or a lightbulb or fix a leaky faucet and other simple tasks around the house? Tyreese can do all of those things, then bash a walker's brains it with the same tool. It's almost like he was born in a Home Depot parking lot or something, but minus the potential complications and defects that are associated with giving birth in a wheelbarrow.
You know the lame stereotype that men never ask for directions? Tyreese never asks for directions because he is a master navigator and can even find his way around an unmarked forest. You'll never be late to your sister's wedding or niece's graduation if you have him at the helm.
