There are times when the line that you stand on in a relationship begins to look blurry and you begin to wonder if you are still as important to your partner as when you both first started.
You find yourself asking questions like “How important am I to you? Am I a priority in your life?”
It does not matter if you have not yet asked your partner these questions, the fact that you have thought about it is enough reason to consider the answer.
We have listed some signs to help you come to the conclusion of whether you are or are not a priority in your present relationship.
If your partner does some of the under listed points, then you can consider yourself a priority to them.
Appreciates And Protects Time Together
For any couple, spending time together is a way of bonding and cementing the relationship. If your partner is very zealous about protecting your time together, then they are letting you know that they value you. In an age where everyone is constantly claiming busy, a partner who wants to spend as much time as possible with you speaks of someone who thinks you are important to them. After all, no one is ever too busy for the ones they love.
Introduces You To Family And Friends
If you don’t have to work a sweat before your partner introduced you to their loved ones like family and friends, then count yourself as an important part of their life. You can be feast assured that you have special standing when your partner is eager for you to meet the important people in his/her life.
Includes You In Their Interests
What better way to show that you matter than inviting you to share in the things that excite them. If your partner wants you to take part in activities that interest/matter to them, then you can count yourself a lucky person.
Is Protective Of You
People tend to protect the things or people they love so if you find that your partner is one person you can count on to have your back no matter what, you can rest easy knowing that you are a priority to them. Someone who values you highly will always have your back, watching out for you and taking your side.
Puts Love Into Action
Love is shown and not just said and someone who values you will not be shy about expressing their love for you with not just words but also by their actions. It is one thing for a person to tell you that you are a priority, it is another thing for them to actually show it. If they are willing to make sacrifices for you among other things, their deeds will be enough to keep your mind at peace as to where you stand with them.
Always A Listening Ear/Shoulder To Lean On
Simeon who genuinely values you will always want to know what is going on for you. Like being protective of you, someone who makes you a priority will ensure that your problems are theirs. They make their ears available to listen even when they can’t provide the direct solution and make their shoulders one to lean on in times of distress.
Respects Your Beliefs And Opinions
The person who is serious about you is serious about your thoughts and convictions.
Nurtures Your Relationship Consistency
