He Doesn’t Make Me a Priority (The Ultimate Guide + Image Quotes)

“Why am I not a priority in my man's life?” is a question I am frequently asked. Continue reading if you don't believe he prioritizes you in your relationship. Shouldn't you be on his mind all the time, especially if he's always on yours? After all, if he truly loves you, you should be on his mind all the time, right? Isn't that how it's supposed to be?

  • If you feel like you're always waiting for him to text you back, which sometimes takes hours or doesn't happen at all
  • If it appears that he prioritizes everything else over you – family, friends, his job, even video games
  • If you don't want to leave him, but you're worried that you'll never be his top priority
  • If your efforts to entice him to spend more time with you only seem to push him further away
  • Then the solution isn't to try to persuade him to prioritize you more
  • That will only drive him further away from you, possibly causing your relationship to die. Instead, the best thing to do is

Why do you need to “feel” like you're a priority to him?

The truth is that wanting to “feel” like a priority with him isn't really about the relationship at all. It's about wanting to feel safe. Movies, TV, family, friends, books, magazines – all of these things instill in you an idea of how much time you're “supposed” to spend with your man.

And what if you don't spend a lot of time with him? It makes you feel unwelcome, unloved, and unimportant to him. It gives you the impression that something is wrong with your relationship and that you are drifting apart from him. (For more information, see this article.) This popular media idea of what a relationship is “supposed” to look like – it's just an idea. It comes from the outside, not the inside. The truth is that it doesn't mean much at all.

Pursuing the “outside idea” of what a relationship should look like

In a relationship, this type of expectation leads to more bickering, unhappiness, arguing, and, eventually, a breakup.
The truth is that you will never be your man's sole focus. This is due to the fact that no one in the world has only one priority. Your man has a lot on his plate. His priority at any given time could be concentrating on work, spending time with his family, seeing friends, or even relaxing and unwinding. You perform the same balancing act with your priorities, but here's the key distinction:

Women excel at multitasking and thinking about multiple things at once, whereas men prefer to focus on one thing at a time and give it their undivided attention.

That means he's (probably) not thinking about you while he's at work. He is concentrating entirely on his work. So, while you may be thinking about him all the time at work, that is not how his mind works. And expecting him to text you back, call you, or do anything other than prioritize his work while he's at work will lead to frustration for both of you.

It's a good thing he prioritizes work while at work – that's why he has a job! And his other priorities are equally important – they all work together to help him maintain a sense of balance in his life.

Getting his full attention

Supporting and respecting his other priorities is the best way to get him to give you his undivided attention (and spend more quality time with you). Giving him space to do the things he enjoys is the best thing a person can do for their partner – and he will notice.

Everyone has their own way of unwinding in their spare time, and everyone requires it

The most important thing to remember is that the more a man feels respected and supported by his partner, the more he will want to be with her. The more he feels she is “different” and someone he shouldn't let go of, the more he will want to hold on to her. The more he instinctively wants to care for her and give her everything he has, the more he will want to give her everything he has.

To begin an upward spiral of respect, happiness, and joy in your relationship, do not try to demand more attention and prioritization from your partner. It is to respect and support his priorities, as well as to give him the space to do the things he enjoys – so that he feels supported, respected, and loved by you, and in turn supports, respects, and loves you.
