We both are sentimental, we have kept the letters we sent each other early on in the relationship, as well as all the cards we have given each other over the years 🙂

Oh God no. Neither of us are remotely sentimental. But I am a dirty hypocrite, in that I want him to donate the suit that he married his ex wife in. So help me, that thing is never being worn in my presence. hahaha.

We are the opposite, he is SO freaking sentimental that he keeps everything.  He has a drawer full of cards, pics, letters, and token trinkets.  Shoot, he has his dads chainsaw in the shed and is even sentimental about that.

Me, I am not at all. I have a few things that I have kept over the years but for the most part, my feelings and memories are not in things they are in my head.  I throw everything away or give it away.  He is always shocked when I throw away the christmas cards in Jan.

He keeps every love letter, card, etc. that I write to him. I do the same. 🙂

We are both very sentimental. We actually have a scrapbook/photo album that he gave to me in our first summer of dating! We like to keep most of the cards in there. 

He has kept every single card, little post it notes, letters, pictures etc that I’ve ever given to him in our almost 7 years of being together. We’ve even kept receipts of special things, such as when we first went out to dinner when we were 17. I’m just the same as him.

He is a little. I wrote him a love letter on Post-It notes and he still has them in his safe box. He wore my class ring on a chain around his neck for a while, and has the birthday card I gave him on his wall. And he has a fortune from a cookie in his wallet that says something about a relationship about to flourish (that he got right before we got back together).

I have the poem he wrote me and the necklace he gave me in high school. And then of course everything he’s given me since then, including random little trinkets and now-dead flowers.

I am EXTREMELY sentimental, FI is not. I kind of wish he was sometimes, though!

I’m really really sentimental. I do a “Month in Review” thing where I write out like 15 highlights/lowlights/important moments from each month, add some pictures, keeping it all on the front of one sheet. Then I slip it in a page protector and slip any movie tickets, matchbooks from nice restaurants, etc behind the page.

SO can be, it’ll always come as a surprise.

The other day, I was thinking out loud trying to figure out what date we went and saw the movie we saw on our first date. He goes “Oh! I have the movie ticket stub in my wallet!”

That was over 4.5 years ago! Turns out he carries it around with him because of how important that night was to him. 🙂

Hm. We’re both sort of sentimental. I don’t keep movie tickets or anything. But our first v-day he got me the golden book (remember the card backed books we had as kids?) of the movie we went to go see on our first date.

He remembers the date we became offcial, I never get the actual date right. It was in september of 2010. I remember that much! I did keep the handkerchif he gave to me when my nose was running on our first date. We did get photobooth pictures done one time, We both still have those. He even took them to work and laminated them, he keeps his in his wallet, mine is on our memo board. 

Mostly he buys me jewelry to mark special occassions and I always wear all of it on date nights. When we go to conventions, he keeps all of our badges. At the state fair last week, he won me a big stuffed pikachu.

So yeah, not notes or love cards and flowers kind deal. But we are sentimental in our own ways.

I am way, way less sentimental than my FI. He gets upset when i throw away receipts from places we have been together… okay, that is a smidge exaggerative but he is much more sentimental.
