Why did I stop counting “monthsaries” (tangina, is there even a word?) and “anniversaries”? First, (Kidding aside), I’ve never had any relationship longer than 1 year and 8 months since 2010 so I think that’s a good mark to stop. Second, I think it’s unnecessary— I did realize tht at some point, it’s a cause of argument when you forget it (I guess this is where the “I’m getting old” part starts— “why the fuck are you even mad? Arent you more concerned of the idea of me having poor memory at 25 than not receiving a mushy 3 page text message or a badly done scrapbook summary of what had happened for the past 15 months and thanking you for it even if you cheated 10 times? Not to mention having to bring up the bad times we had, agaaaaain and agaaaaain and agaaaaaain.” You get the point.
I never fail to remind my girlfriend how much I love her and how thankful I am to have her, every God given day that I am with her.
There’s nothing wrong in celebrating it every month or every year— it’s just that some people tend to appreciate their partners only on these days.
That’s my opinion, and I still respect people’s view on this, and if that’s what makes them happy, then good for them.
I stopped counting months and years cause I choose to celebrate my relationship EVERYDAY; my girl deserves the appreciation, mainly for putting up with my temper and my insecurities.
