I realize this is kind of lame as I write this, but just wanna make sure I'm not overlooking any important ones. Yesterday marked the seventh anniversary of the first time I went out with my now husband.It’s the day we met and the day of our first date and first kiss and all of that (we have a few anniversaries, actually).Deciding on a dating anniversary is easy if you meet on a blind date and then date consistently from then on.
He dropped me off—without a goodnight kiss—and called me a day or two later. Ladies and gentlemen, I have a very serious, pertinent issue I need for us to discuss. Namely, what sort of anniversaries do you celebrate with your significant other and do you have names for those anniversaries? We don’t stop at just our dating and wedding anniversaries; we celebrate the anniversary of the day he proposed (2/6), the first time we talked on the phone (4/20), and the day I moved to New York to be with him (9/30).For example, my husband and I were set up by a mutual friend and met in person for the first time on a blind date. We’ve always gone out for a nice dinner and we reminisce about that first meeting and how awkward it was for the first hour or so until that second glass of wine started working its magic on both of us. I told Drew a couple days ago that May 5th could be our “dating anniversary” and July 24th could be our “wedding anniversary.” That makes sense, right? We don’t exchange gifts or anything — we hardly even do gifts for holidays or birthdays; we made an agreement long ago that we’d rather spend money on experiences together than stuff for each other.Now do you see why this is such a serious issue here? May 5th also happens to be my mom’s birthday and I like the idea of having two things to celebrate on this special day. — Editor Amelia] So, as you can see, this can’t not be our anniversary. Actually, I hope we always enjoy that kind of stuff, but I know how life can sometimes get in the way of our best intentions. I guess my point is: life can be hard; celebrate the good stuff. I know, I know; I shouldn’t worry about what other people do. Speaking of things that work for us, I should give my full disclosure here: Drew and I are suckers for anything worth celebrating.We wouldn't do cards and presents though and we would only do it yearly not monthly. got to hold hands the whole time.) Then I took her out to lunch, then to a movie, then to a jewelry store to buy her a bracelet she liked - then to dinner, then took her back to my place and we made love several times, then took her home and left her with some roses and a kiss.
