I don't have a partner at present myself, but this is important to me nonetheless. I don't expect to be the centre of someone's universe, nor them of mine. It is important to me though that my schedule as a single parent is taken into consideration, that there is a willingness for my partner/partners to work with me to make plans. That I am not being forced to work around their schedules.
