We aren’t married yet and don’t celebrate our dating anniversary.  I honestly have no idea what day we started dating.  Sometime in March of 2007 is all I got, haha.

I was dating two other guys when i first began dating my Fiance.  It was very casual and obviously progressed into something more serious.  We did eventually think back to approximately when our exclusive “start” date would be so we could celebrate an anniversary while we dated.

I’m sure we won’t celebrate after we get married particularly since our wedding date will be about a month before the “dating anniversary”.

We had a “arbitrary” dating anniversary since neither of us really knew exactly when it started since we were friends/coworkers for years before we got together.  We both kind of mentioned it on the day that it passed, and had an awwww moment, but that was about it.

we semi-celebrated this year because it was our 5 year anniversary. we didn’t do much–on the actual day, we had friends visiting us from out of town, but we went out to dinner a few days later. we decided we’d only celebrate the big dating anniversaries from now on since we have our wedding anniversary instead, so i guess we won’t really celebrate again until our 10 year dating anniversary. thoguh realistically, we’re big foodies so it’s a good excuse to go out to dinner, so maybe we’ll keep it up anyway 😉

eta: we met on a blind date so it’s easy to know when exactly our anniversary is

We celebrated this past April for our 1 year anniversary =) I think we’ll most likely only celebrate our wedding after next year though… but I’ll bring it up every year. Next year our wedding shower will be on that day!

We do celebrate our dating anniversary! We met online and met for the first time in person on our first date, and so it is also the anniversary of our first meeting. Now it is the anniversary of our engagement because he proposed on our 3 year first date anniversary. It is alway going to be a special date for us!

We gave up the dating anniversary when we got a wedding anniversary. Ours was fairly distinct because we had “the talk” about being boyfriend and girlfriend.

We celebrate it every year. It’s also our wedding date. We will have been together for 4 years that day.

We aren’t married yet, but we did have a discussion about whether we’d celebrate it or not.  What we decided?  Up until we’re married, we’re still gonna celebrate the dating anniversary.  Then, once we’re married, on our dating anniversary we’re gonna celebrate by buying each other raunchy stuff.  It’s a way to build up some sexy clothes as well as keep the romance spicy while we’re married 😛

Good topic.  I actually asked my Fiance about this, and he says we will have a new anniversary after our wedding.  I will miss that date, since we have been celebrating it for 11 years.  I am sure we will still give each other a speacial look every year on that day.

We’ve been together for over 9 years and married for a few months.  Our dating anniversary still feels like our “real” one to me since we were very committed from the start.

Mr. Hedgie wont let us. He says that isn’t important anymore… I kinda disagree but I get his point.
