When you're in a relationship, wanting to be your partner's priority isn't a bad thing at all. After all, if someone is important, you're going to do the best you can to keep them in your life and show them how much you value them. The reality is, there will be times when you won't be your partner's priority and that's completely OK. But there is a difference between not being your partner's priority sometimes and not being a priority at all, and if you feel your circumstances may be the latter, it's important to look for s you aren't a priority in your relationship.
So how can you tell if your partner is truly treating you well and prioritizing you as they should? According to Rappaport, it's all about thinking about things from their perspective. Sometimes not being a priority in the moment is necessary, but if it becomes commonplace, then it's time to change the dynamic. So here are some ways to tell your partner really doesn't view you as a priority in their life, according to experts. As you know, communication is super important for relationships to work.
If your partner doesn't make the effort to communicate with you throughout the day or even the week, that's a they're not making time for you. At the end of the day people make time for what's important to them. Getting angry at your partner for not texting you all the time can push them away instead of bringing them closer.
Letting your partner know that you appreciate it when they check in with you throughout the week is one of the best ways to approach the subject, and let them know you'd like more frequent communication. For instance, if your partner brings up the fact that they're leaving to take on a six months-long project without consulting you first, your relationship might not have been on their mind when they decided to take the project on. Big decisions like that are something that should be discussed together, especially if it involves one partner being away for a period of time.
It's important to be a supportive partner, but it's just as important to keep each other in the loop. So make sure your partner knows you want to be taken into consideration when it comes to major decisions they need to make. So if meeting their family is important, let them know. If they think it's "too soon" or have any other reasons for not introducing you yet, having a conversation about it can clear the air and help you figure out what their reservations might be.
If special occasions are important to you, be sure to let your partner know that. If you know your partner constantly forgets important dates, setting a calendar reminder on their phone can be helpful. If your partner can plan vacations with friends but not with you, Stef Safran , matchmaking and dating expert, tells Bustle, you may not be a priority. If your partner can't make the effort to make plans with you in advance and keep them, then it's time to have a discussion about where they see this relationship going. If you've noticed that intimacy, either stops or slows way down, Alisha Powell, PhD, LCSW , therapist and relationship expert tells Bustle, that may be a your relationship is no longer a priority.
A lack of intimacy isn't limited to the bedroom. If there are no affectionate touches, hand holding, or random kisses, it's important to be aware. As Dr. Emily Morse, relationship expert and host of Sex with Emily tells Bustle, there's no need to worry just yet. Making time for sex and getting your partner to initiate it more is as simple as scheduling it. According to Morse, scheduling is a good way to make sure you're setting aside a time for sex that you're both comfortable with. If you feel like you're doing too much without getting anything in return, that's a good indicator that you probably aren't your partner's priority.
As Reardon says, "Communication is key for successful relationship. However, if you have to keep discussing the issue and nothing has changed, then it may be time to move on and find someone who will make you a priority. Life can get in the way of your relationship from time to time. It may seem like you're being unfair by expecting to be a priority. But there's nothing wrong with wanting to be your partner's one. So don't be afraid to bring it up. By Kristine Fellizar.Dont make someone a priority in your life
