(And it’s funny because since dating him I have decided that I definitely with him. The typical one was when we “officially” started dating. Don’t get me wrong – dating is fun and can lead to serious relationships but perhaps the ‘serious’ relationships should be the ones celebrating anniversaries? My second boyfriend I remember it was the 14th…but I honestly cannot remember why. In a few we celebrated when we first met or kissed or something along those lines. boyfriends and girlfriends seem to come and go without much thought or memory so I think it might be best to reserve ‘anniversaries’ for more meaningful relationships. I'm the type of girl who seizes every occasion to celebrate something.
It makes senses that there are more cards for people who actually tied the knot and aren’t just calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend, but I started thinking about anniversary celebrations in general and realized they can create a lot of stress or annoyance, depending on the situation.These days, I'm all about honesty and being up front. I'd rather a guy show me his true colors early on. Guys think they "should" do something because we "expect" it. It’s tough to keep up with all of that even if you’re in it, but it does help maintain some sort of fire and excitement, and when work and life pressures build up, it’s nice to have something sweet to celebrate every month.It could very well cheapen the small milestones too, so I’d say selectively choosing which ones are significant is a good habit to have.
