Cupid’s Advice:

Especially if you’re used to it being just you and your friends, adding a significant other to the midst of your social life can make things complicated. But, don’t worry, you don’t have to completely reorganize your schedule. Just incorporate some of our tips below!

1. Update your schedule: Figure out which days of the week you’re willing/available to spend time with your significant other. If your friends plan a weekly game night on Thursdays, don’t skip it just to hang out with your new flame. Make sure that the time you’re spending with your new boyfriend/girlfriend isn’t interfering with your friend time.

2. It’s the little things: It can be hard to stick to a schedule every week when so many things can pop up and throw us off our game. If this happens, make sure you’re inviting a friend for a quick lunch or dinner if you’ve been spending more time with your significant other this week/month and vise versa.

3. Integrate them into your friend group: The easiest way to spend equal time with both parties is to do it at the same time! Slowly introduce your new boyfriend/girlfriend to your friend group so that your friends want you to bring him/her to game night or on other outings.
