Hey everyone,

How do you strike a balance between friendships and relationships or does one always come out on top?

Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    I’ve always found it quite easy to balance, I think it’s really important to maintain friendships as well as romantic relationships (there are certain things I’d rather talk to one of my female friends about lol) and find people who abandon all their friends for a partner very strange (and extremely annoying).

    I just arrange times to see my friends as well as dates with my boyfriend (can’t really explain how though lol).

    Heya @Aife

    I dont because im not in relationship & barely have any friends so hopefully still okay to answer these sort of questions?

    But can remmeber times when lost friends as soon as they got into relationships. Where they didnt make any effort to spend any time or make plans. Which i think is the most imporant thing. Cause friends are important to keep too. 

    But other than the obvious of making plans with friends ect- im not sure
    Stop imagining fake scenarios and hurting your own feelings
