You may want to clarify exactly how you are going to measure your dating anniversaries.
Since there is no “official date” that a dating relationship begins some couples celebrate their anniversary on the based on the day they first met and others on the date of their first date.
The year has been exciting, emotional, challenging, frustrating, enchanting, surprising, and about 45 other adjectives that range from great to gosh-awful. And it has been one of the greatest learning experiences of my life. Don’t put your phone on the table while you’re eating.
During our anniversary dinner, I asked Jeremiah what a few things were that he learned throughout the year. Don’t answer every call and text that comes in while you’re together.
The lists of symbols and gifts for wedding anniversaries is often written and talked about. Dating anniversaries tend to be celebrated in months rather than years.
There does not appear to be a similar universally accepted gift guide or suggested list for dating anniversaries.
Some are simple, some are more involved, and the prices and effort required vary—but all are decidedly not-lame.
Because you guys are #relationshipgoals, and deserve to be celebrated.
Whether it’s a bar or the beach, head back to the scene where you two first met.
Some gift stores and websites have created their own lists of suggestions but nothing as widely recognized as the wedding anniversary symbol list first created by Emily Post in 1922.
However if you have a good thing going, it is important to let your partner in the relationship know that you appreciate them.
I, myself, still have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I’ve actually been in a relationship for over a year. And it doesn’t mean you have to smother them in expensive gifts or elaborate dates. Women just want to feel like they still make you nervous and that you are thinking about them in unique ways and wanting to make a good impression on them. It levels the playing field and brings you both back to neutral.
No cheating, no “breaks”, not even too many silent treatments. From the first date, when I walked up in a navy shirt and black shorts, the look on her face said enough. Sure, some guys are able to blend the colors and pull it off in the magazines. It can be as simple as opening the car door, or spending time with her family when she’s gone, or not farting in her car. Making yourself vulnerable makes you so much stronger in her eyes.
