    @MissCountryGirl727:  Not at all.  Our 10 year dating anniversary is next year, and I was thinking I should mark it down on my calendar to not forget.  But once you’ve got a wedding anniversary, it takes precedence!

    We aren’t married yet–but we talked about this. Our dating anniversary is close to Valentine’s day, so we probably will celebrate it–but it’ll be a dating anniversary/Valentines celebration, so we can do something more special (everything on V-day is so overpriced).

    Our wedding anniversary will be the bigger one though. πŸ™‚

    DH and I met on a Friday the 13th, so rather than celebrating the day we met, we try to do something fun/cheesy every time there’s a Fri. the 13th.

    ours is only two weeks before our wedding anniversary, and we were apart for the last one. normally we just try to make some sort of an effort with dinner. we had a weekend away for our 5th year of dating. we haven’t had a wedding anniversary yet!

    also valentines day is a week before our dating anniversary so it’s like love month for us.

    MissCountryGirl727      i dont think we will. i think we will start back at 1 year in may 10. but we started dating in oct 10. last oct was our 7 year too:) I wanted to do something special. we ended up going on a boat ride to see and hike some old WWII bunkers, got drunk, ate, and later went to a friends place for a hot tub. ill be honest we got totally drunk!! It wasnt really planned, our friends had asked us and i thought what the hell im calling in sick. actually the day after i called in. We never really celerated our anniversary. We remembered but never got each other anything. Had our own dinner at home usually. Chill like.  So You guys should do something different! If something comes up take it. Let us know what you guys did do:):)

    We hated our dating aniversary being between Thanksgiving & Christmas. We got married in Summer to avoid doing everything (Halloween, thanksgiving, dating aniversary, Christmas, New Year, his bday, and Valentines day) in winter and nothing in summer!

    You know, we don’t celebrate our dating anniversary, mainly because it’s about 2 weeks after our wedding anniversary.  BUT this thread got me thinking, as of this September, we’ll reach the 10 year dating anniversary mark! So maybe we really shoud celebrate! πŸ˜€

    We don’t really have a dating anniversary (we were best friends for a long time, and then it sort of morphed into dating and it’s hard to say when exactly that happened), but we do kind of acknowledge the anniversary of the day we first said “I love you” (which I guess was when it was really, really obvious that we weren’t just friends anymore. Haha!). 

    We don’t do anything special, but we always say “you know what today is?” and “x years!” and he usually gives me flowers (just from the grocery store, nothing too fancy).

    Our dating anniversary was this past weekend!  The only reason I remembered is because I had it saved on my calendar to repeat every year.  We definitely didn’t to anything to celebrate and won’t in the future.  It’s so much easier just having the one wedding anniversary!

    Wellll, our dating anniversary is also our wedding anniversary so I’m not much help πŸ˜‰ But if it wasn’t on the same day, I don’t think we would “celebrate” it, but I think we would acknowledge it at least. Maybe cook a nice dinner, but definitely not go out and spend money for it.
