Some are simple, some are more involved, and the prices and effort required vary—but all are decidedly not-lame.Because you guys are #relationshipgoals, and deserve to be celebrated.
My boyfriend, Jeremiah, and I celebrated our one year (dating) anniversary on November 10th. Different schedules, and long spans of time apart due to travel, and different ideas about the best way to spend time together can be deal-breakers. Go as long as you can without breaking the barrier. If she says it’s fine, because she’s not one of those “high-maintenance girls”, but you can see her eye twitching as she talks, don’t take the bait.

It's very coincidental that I felt this way around this year marker, but since I said no to the anniversary celebration, and I feel like keeping my word is more beneficial to our relationship over back pedaling, I'm not putting any emphasis on the 1 year thing.
She hit me up sometime in August and asked me what are my thoughts on going out and celebrating it.
I thought not, and the biggest reason I think not is because we are only dating. I don't see any significance in celebrating the fact that we've been dating a year.
