The only challenge: finding anniversary date ideas that aren’t lame and an absolute cliché.So to help you out, we’ve created a list of activities that are fun, romantic, and classic.Did her hair the way that I like it most and trotted around the house for the night in underwear. Put them in a envelope with some pictures of the 2 of us from that year and mailed it to her. I took her out dinner to the restaurant where we went on our first real date, made her a nice card with an original (and admittedly mediocre) poem and some flowers...and I believe a necklace (this was over 7 years ago now, so it's getting a little hazy).2015 will be the first year we'll eschew celebrating our dating anniversary, since a couple weeks later we'll be celebrating out first wedding anniversary. I have to take the train every time I want to see my SO, so I saved every train ticket and stuck it in with a diary entry of that day, photos, sketches, copies of cards we'd sent to each other, gig tickets, menus from new places etc.Some are simple, some are more involved, and the prices and effort required vary, but all are worth it—because you guys are #relationshipgoals and deserve to be celebrated.A night at the theater, a museum, a dance show, the opera—find what you’re into, and splurge for a night! Check here first for unique, remarkable wedding anniversary ideas.
And internally I celebrated the fact that this amazing dude actually wanted to be with me for a whole year!
See, I don't have a lot of money, and she's aware of that, so I did what I could with what I had.
Got her a necklace that I could afford and she wears that thing like it's a 500 year old family heirloom, makes me feel like I made a damn fine decision.
It took a while but it was worth it, he loved it to pieces.
It's been a great tool for his depression - when he's down and I'm far away, he has that to flick through to help remember how good things can be.
The last time I managed to reach a one year mark, the conversation went like this."Oh yeah, did you know last month was like our 1 year mark."And she said, "Yeah, you forgot it.""Oh.""You're not going to apologize? Generally I agree, and with previous gfs I would generally do something to celebrate, but with this one, neither of us know what day we started dating, so we can not have an official anniversary date. We actually went to his best friends wedding on our one year, he was a groomsman.
