8. You think a million times before asking them to go somewhere with you
That concert you can’t ask your friends to go with, or that romance flick you’ve been meaning to watch, or any of the boring or lame things you’d want to do just for the sake of doing them. They’re supposed to be your fail-safe person. When everyone else says no, you go to them. But if you can’t even go to them, then who else.
9. You constantly need to justify your partner’s behavior to your family and friends
Your friends and family always question the way your partner treats you, and you always end up making excuses. They worry that if your partner isn’t respectful or considerate of you around other people, they must be worse when it’s just the two of you. If they love you and care for you, their behavior should reflect it, and should never have to defend them in front of anyone.
10. You try to involve them in your life, while they make no such efforts
Despite how your family or friends feel about your partner, you still try to make them a part of your people. And instead of returning the favor, they don’t even act interested in any of your endeavors. They’d rather not know more about you than they already know. And they’re very private about their life as well. You don’t know much about their family or friends and they don’t make any efforts to change that. There’s always some sort of lack of connection between the two of you.
