Tips On Celebrating Your Dating Anniversaries Thoughtfully

Aug 17, 2007
Celebrating dating anniversaries is not about a lavish party or any kind of expensive event. It's primarily about letting your partner know that you remembered the date, which means that the relationship is special to you. Of course, not every anniversary is as special or has equal weight as others. Let's take a look at the special dating anniversaries that you should be celebrating.

The first is the three month dating anniversary. If you've been together for three months the bloom is not off the rose of romance, but celebrating the event tells your mate that you want to continue the relationship even though you've now started to see some of her or his faults and foibles. A nice meal in a special place is a great way to celebrate this dating anniversary. You might want to go to a comedy club or dinner theatre, or to some place romantic like a ballet or opera.

And, oh, by the way, don't celebrate the first or second month of your dating. That's the time when you're still getting to know each other, you don't know that you want to go farther; you don't know that your partner does. Besides, most relationships last for one or two months. You could be spending time and money celebrating something that will end next week. You could have an empty wallet and a lonely heart.

Celebrating a one year dating anniversary is much more serious, and much more special. Now you really know a lot more about each other, good and bad. Yet you're still together. You're bound to be thinking long term as is he or she, and you need to make this incredibly special. Travel out of town - maybe a trip to San Francisco if you live in Sonoma County, or a day at the Indy 500 if you're from Fort Wayne. It doesn't have to be a week in Hawaii, but make it a very special treat, full of good wine, good food and loving attention showered on each others.

Celebrating a two year dating anniversary should be a trip alone together. You might do something you've always wanted to do - something that the two of you will remember forever. Perhaps begin a sport or tradition that will carry you into forever. You might start wilderness camping, or whitewater rafting, or mountain climbing. You might find a cabin at the lake that you return to each and every year after that. Once night has fallen on your first day's adventure is the time to pull out the gorgeous diamond or the great new watch, or the book of love poems - something that will have her or him remembering you each time she or he looks at it.

Once you've hit the five year dating anniversary one of you is probably getting anxious about when the question is going to get popped. That anniversary must deal with that. While you must shower each other with love and attention you must recommit as well, whether there's a diamond in the future or the present or not. Without this you might not be celebrating any more dating anniversaries.
