However if you have a good thing going, it is important to let your partner in the relationship know that you appreciate them.
Anniversaries, dating or otherwise were invented for this reason.
I suppose Birthdays, Christmas, Valentines Day, Thanksgiving, etc are all bad ideas too?
If you are in a long term relationship and wish to express 'I love you,' consider jewelry, roses, heart-shaped keepsakes or an item personalized with a loving sentiment.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. kinda sounds like alcoholics anonymous (not that I would know). I got thrown a "happy anniversary" on the WEEK of our first phone call... lol You meet someone and date for a month and instead of saying "You know what? Lets call the days I just go out and buy you a something, "Gift days".
Send your friends some heartwarming wedding anniversary messages on their special day. So, as they celebrate the day of their union, join with them by expressing your anniversary wishes and messages which will encourage and inspire them.
These wedding anniversary messages are best included in your anniversary gift or card.
An anniversary should be a day when you conveniently forget about the rest of the world, and focus on each other.
