#033 Friends come first.
Every relationship needs balance. If you’re just starting a new relationship, you may become a little obsessed with spending time with your sweetie, but don’t neglect your friends. Your friends might only know your new beau as the one who keeps stealing you away or won’t allow you to have time to see them. That’s not the way you want them to think of your S.O. If they invite you out, don’t always ask if your S.O. can come along. Spend some alone time with just your friends—they’ll appreciate the one-on-one time. The same standards can go for your marriage too. If you push your friends away to be with your S.O. more, they may not be there to console you during your next breakup.
