    • I believe it's not necessary to prioritize relationship unless you are engaged/married. Saying from personal experience, this makes heartbreaks less painful.

    • But @Asker... You're under 18?

    • I want to know the asker's age now.

      And I did say 'until you are engaged or married' so I obviously meant unless you are grown up. You didn't read it yet?

  • My boyfriend because I love him and he lives far anyway so I really miss him, I like my friends especially my bestie and I wouldn't hurt them by prioritizing them over my boyfriend anyway, so I avoid to let that happen, like...
    For this Valentine's day I don't know if me and my boyfriend can meet, so I'm not making any plans with my friends to disappoint them but anyway my bestie already told me she will give me all her support in case I need, happy friends happy boyfriend 🤗
    Maybe not happy me but that's my fault...

  • I have so many friends but when they get married or get a girlfriend I never see them anymore. That is really unfair and selfish really. Yes, spend time with your spouse or significant other but don't disappear completely. I shared my time between friends and girlfriends.

  • Both. The person you commit to should be important, but friends were there before and will be there after if it doesn't work out. The only time a significant other should be a priority over friends is if you make a commitment for life, like marriage.

  • I believe that your partner should be just as much of a friend as she/he is your partner. and in some cases your best friend. but even so i would try not to prioritize one over the other because certain situations call for more prioritization then others

  • Basically who comes first. If I have plans with my partner, my friends get a no; and If I have plans with my friends my partner gets a no. but in other hand the importance of what I have to do with them or I want from them is a matter too.

    • Both, because it doesn't matter how long you've known each other and putting your significant other last isn't right just because it's only been 2 weeks.

  • Kind of both, like my girlfriend is close to all of my friends so its slightly her then my friends. Like I can't imagine losing any of them.

  • I would prioritize my partner if we were in a serious relationship and my friends if I was single. I just think it's important to have your partner's back always if you plan on sharing your life and being intimate with them.

    That being said, I would never abandon my friends <3

  • To me it’s friends but I’ve never been in a serious long term commitment (life long sort of thing) so I don’t know how I’d feel then. Friends are going to be there for you all the time though so...

  • My friends are very important to me, but my relationship with my boyfriend is pretty serious at this point so he is my priority. If our relationship was more casual, friends would be more of a priority.

  • I prioritize both because let's be honest friendships and relationships come and go and if all I did was put my boyfriend first then I would be neglecting my friends and if I put my friends first then I'd be neglecting my boyfriend. I don't believe in those sayings about putting your friends before your significant other because it's just wrong.

  • My ex used to tell me to cut ties with my friends especially the guys. One day he was so furious that a guy friend of mine tagged me and called me a tomboy! They knew that he was possessive and would sometimes even tell me stuff like it's ok if you don't talk to us if things are really getting so bad. I'm glad I did otherwise, cause when my ex broke up with me and I was going through one hell of a heartbreak, it's those same guy friends who gave me so much emotional support and time.

    So no. I'm not prioritizing a guy before marriage.

  • This is a huge deal for me. They will always take equal priority for me. So many people abandon their friends for significant others. So many people get jealous of their SO's friends. And its silly. You can't have just one person in your life, and they all need to feel like they are important to you.
    I feel as though too often, friends are taken advantage of and taken for granted. They are left behind for a girlfriend or boyfriend, and come crawling back if it doesn't work out. Friends should not only be important when you're single.
    They are often the people you confide in the most, that get you through the hardest times, and are there for you when you need them.
    A life without a romantic partner might be disappointing. But a life without friends would be near impossible to live.

    • I'm really lucky to have tons of friends. And we're all really close. And they're so important to me that I know my life would be a hundred times more difficult without them.
      And I don't want children. That isn't why I would have a significant other.

    • Me and my friends are so close in fact, that 4-5 of us HAVE discussed moving places together.
