You have to be able to talk things out. You have to decide what’s best for you as a couple and as individuals. If you are able to make adjustments, then that’s great.

If not, well, the rest is up to you. So how do you know that you aren’t being made a priority in the life of your partner? Well,

Here are a few signs that can help you out.


1. You constantly feel objectified.

If your partner is only using you for your body, then that is objectification at its finest. You are more than your body. You have feelings, emotions, goals, dreams, and opinions. If your partner doesn’t recognize these aspects of your personality, then maybe you just aren’t as important as you think you are in the eyes of your partner.

2. They never show up on time.

They don’t value your time as much as the value theirs. If you really prioritize someone, you would know that their time is important to them. You wouldn’t want to be wasting it whether deliberately or incidentally. If the tardiness for dates and appointments is a regular occurrence, then perhaps your time just really isn’t a priority to your partner.

3. They don’t put much meaning into your special occasions.

Anniversaries? Big deal. Birthdays? Oh, okay, here’s a cake. Yeah. There isn’t really much hoopla about your special occasions. Your partner treats it as any other day, because maybe, you’re probably just like any other person. You aren’t necessarily a priority so these dates shouldn’t be a priority either.

4. You don’t feel much different from when you were still single.

If you’re in a relationship and yet it still feels like you’re single, then that is a huge red flag right there. What’s the point of being in a relationship that still makes you feel like you’re alone in the world? It means that your partner just doesn’t value whatever expectations you have for the relationship in general.

5. You are constantly feeling disappointed.

Disappointment is a silent killer in even the strongest kinds of relationships. If your partner is constantly disappointing you, then that means your wants and needs in the relationships are never being met. It means that your partner just doesn’t hold your feelings about the relationship to a high regard. It means you’re partner is okay with the fact that you get hurt every once in a while.

6. They don’t make an effort to make you happy.

Happiness is what we all look for in life. If your partner fails to make you happy, is this really a relationship still worth fighting for? People who prioritize their partners would do whatever it takes to make their partners happy. They would go to the moon and back just to put a smile on their partners’ faces. If your partner doesn’t seem to be putting much work into making you happy, then maybe your happiness just isn’t a priority at the moment.
