Our dating anniversary is going away.  We only celebrated 1 dating anniversary before our engagement and I don’t think either of us is terribly attached to the date.

I was such a big “dating anniversary” girl with all my other boyfriends, that it seemed natural to not focus on our dating anniversary with “the one”.  I didn’t expect it–that’s just how it turned out!

I’m looking forward  to marriage anniversaries…then everyone celebrates with you! (i.e. friends and family aren’t likely to remember your dating anniversary)

How long have you been together?

I feel the same way, Bamboo, but I hadn’t thought of the logistics of it. We will celebrate our fifth dating anniversary this year. It seems kind of unfair to have to start all over from one, doesn’t it?

I’ve celebrated my dating anniversary (July 5) six times over already.  We’ll give up the dating anniversary after we get married, but I can definitely see myself telling people we’ve been together for XX years and married for XX years.

We are planning on celebrating both our wedding and dating anniversaries… forever.  🙂  Our dating anniversary is in September, and we got married in May, so there’s a little space between them.  Plus, it’s not like we do anything huge for our anniversary now: just nice dinner, champagne, maybe a show, etc…

We still sort of remember it. We’ll say “Happy Anniversary” to each other, but we don’t overly celebrate. Our dating anniversary is in November and we got married in September, so I usually say we’ve been dating for xx and married for xx…

I think I will probably mention it and say happy anniversary but it is Dec 23rd and has been a pain in the ass the last 5 years working anniversary plans into the holiday season!

Once we get married that dating anniversary is going bye-bye.  (Wow, don’t know why I was compelled to type that) I hope we will acknowledge the day and we won’t let it disappear from our memories, because it was the start of something big.  But I won’t expect more than a kiss and an “I love you.”

I figure we’ll probably just celebrate the one anniversary.  We’re not huge anniversary people and we knew each other for like 9 years before we started dating, so the first date wasn’t a particularly momentous date for us.  I figure it’s enough to expect us to remember one date, let alone multiple ones. 😉

We’ll likey grab a beer and toast our dating anniversary every year, but actually celebrate our W. Anniversary.

I think our dating anniversary will fall by the wayside. It does feel a little frustrating that all those years are sort of going to waste in that we are starting over with the counting….but I am enjoying counting up our new anniversaries!

I think the date of our first date will always be special for both of us. We are actually getting married before our first date anniversary (we started dating February 28th, got engaged June 18th, getting married December 5th). I’m not sure we’ll actually “celebrate” it…just remember it fondly. 🙂
