Relationships work when each person in the couple puts the other one first. That means putting your partner before your social life or career or personal ambitions. It doesn’t mean neglecting your social life, career, or personal ambitions but it does mean always considering how your actions in any of those areas of life will affect your partner. If anything you want to do with your friends, job, or any other part of your life would leave your partner hurt or neglected, that’s something you seriously consider. And you do what you can to prevent other parts of your life from negatively affecting your relationship. When you’re not in a relationship like this, you can feel it around every corner. You wake up feeling anxious because you just know that somehow, your partner will let you down that day. Here are signs you aren’t your partner’s first priority.
He won’t put anything in his calendar
He will never physically open his calendar and write down an event you’d like him to make time for. That’s because he doesn’t want to be held accountable if he “forgets” and makes other plans. And that’s because he absolutely wants the freedom to “forget” and make other plans. He really only plans on going to your thing if, when that day roles around, he has nothing better to do (and he feels like it).
