Not Making Time for Each Other
We’re all busy. Everyone understands that. People today need an extra four hours in their days to get everything done that “needs” to be done. Making time for your partner should be a priority, though.
Now, just because your partner doesn’t want to go have a romantic dinner when they’ve worked a 70 hour week or isn’t up for a long walk through the park when they have a huge meeting the next day, doesn’t meet you are in a failing relationship. There will be those times where there just isn’t time. That shouldn’t be the norm, though.
If your partner never seems to have time to spend with you, there is a problem. When things are truly important to us, we find time for them, regardless of how busy we are. If your partner is invested in your relationship, they’ll make time for you. Even if it’s just a quick phone call to tell you they love you when they are traveling or taking an hour to help you prepare for a job interview.
If you are too busy to ever make time for your partner, it may be time to let them down gently. The relationship doesn’t really matter to you anymore. Conversely, if they never seem to have time to spend with you, brace yourself to hear “it’s not you, it’s me.”
