There may be times where you saw yourself feeling ignored and neglected in a relationship. That is perfectly normal. You just have to tell your partner that somehow you are feeling it. You have to talk things out. You need to decide what the best things are for you as a couple and as individuals. If you are willing to make some adjustments, then that is great. If not, well, the rest is up to you. So how would you know that you are not being prioritized by your partner in life? Here are the few signs that can actually help you out:

If the not being punctual for dates and appointments has become regular, then perhaps your time is not valuable to your partner.
They don’t put much meaning to your special moments
If your anniversaries and birthdays don’t seem to become special anymore, then there is definitely something wrong. There aren’t much really celebrations about your important occasions and your partner treats it as any other day because maybe, you’re not that important to them. You are not a priority to these dates so you are not their priority as well.
You don’t feel much different when you were still single
If you are already in a relationship and yet you still feel that you are alone and single, then that is a big problem. What is the point of being in a relationship that makes you feel still alone? It only means that your partner doesn’t value whatever expectation that you have for the relationship you are in.
You are continuously feeling disappointed

If your partner is continuously disappointing you that only mean your wants and needs in a relationship are not being satisfied. Your partner doesn’t really hold your feelings and relationship to a high standard. It means that your partner is just fine in the fact that you are hurting even once.
They don’t actually make an effort to make you happy
Happiness is what people look for in life. If your partner fails to make you happy, then you will begin to ask yourself if this relationship is even worth fighting for. People who prioritize their partner will actually willing to do everything just to make them happy. They would do everything, even the impossible ones just to see their happy faces. If your partner doesn’t seem to put much work and effort to make you happy, then maybe your happiness is not that important for them.
They don’t find time for you

Your partner would rather watch TV than to talk to you. These are the signs of a person that is not being the prioritized.
You don’t have couple fights
Couples who usually fight are the ones who really care about each other. They are the kinds of couples who want to see conflicts and disagreements at the end of the day. They fight because they want to understand each other better. So if you are not fighting and just chooses to suppress fights and disagreements, then there is a huge problem in your relationship. It only means that you are not willing to hear them out.
You constantly feel objectified
If your partner is only using you for your body, then that is an objectification at its finest. You are more than just your body. You have emotions, feelings, goals, dreams, future and opinions. So if your partner doesn’t recognize your worth, then maybe you are not that important as you think you are in their eyes.
