Dating anniversaries should you celebrate
So me and my bf are coming up to 6 ish months together and I recently told two friends this to which both of them replied that we should do something (both of them are in relationships and both celebrated it).
To my friends and family who know my dating history, it was a miraculous occasion. You’ll think you guys are comfortable enough with each other and your relationship is “there”, but it’s not. It doesn’t matter if you have dated 1 month or 1 year or have been married 50 years. Worshipping brings you closer, it empowers you as a couple, it creates a heart-environment for you to work through your issues. You’ve had ups and downs, ins and outs and you know for sure that there’s no no one else you’d rather be with. Maybe its your 6 monthsary or the landmark of your first year together.Maybe it’s even your 10th or 20th year together and that beautiful day where you can celebrate all those years of love and devotion is arriving soon.John Gottman explains how couples’ memories of the past actually change over time, and can become tinted in either a positive or a negative light.
Over time, we literally brainwash ourselves to remember some memories, and forget others.
So today is the one year anniversary of our 1st date with my girlfriend, who I know has bought me a nice gift to celebrate. I'm thinking flowers, but am looking for more suggestions from my fellow Yelpers.
