    Default "Your soft place to fall"

    I believe your partner should have the capacity to be your A, but that they don't always have to be that person for you.

    A for sure.
    But it would differ for everyone depending on the people around them.
    My mum never got that kind of support from dad, so looked to family, kids & a couple of close friends.

    Great answer. I'm going with this too.

    This exactly is my DH. Sometimes I find it really frustrating.

    I'd still go with A though, I get nearly all my support from DH, way more than any of my family. I have a couple of close friends that are great supports but nothing like DH.

    Mostly A, but you can't rely on them for everything, and expect that all they're going to want to do is listen to you b*tch and moan whenever you feel like it. They have needs too.

    I think you should be able to rely on them MOST of the time, but certainly not always.

    This is how I would sum it up. Because sometimes I want to just talk about stuff with my mum/girlfriends.
    When it really matters though I think you should be able to rely on your partner.

    I think A, but DP is more a B. He is supportive and there for me but in his own way.

    A and B :-)
    I think my partner should be my main source of emotional support. He's my best friend and my life team partner so he deserves to know when I struggle.
    BUT I am not expecting him to provide me for all my needs. My friends, families, work and own interests are part of the balance.

    A bit of both. There for me when I really need his support and there to tell me to toughen up
