Today is a special day for myself and my boyfriend; it’s our 4 month anniversary! But many people say an anniversary isn’t something to celebrate until its been 1 year+… I was wondering, should a ‘socially acceptable’ time limit to celebrate certain occasions be followed by everyone, even if they don’t want to. In my opinion, if you want to celebrate 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 1 year etc, you should be able to do so without the snide comments from those who chose not to celebrate something they are very well able to do if they so wish to.
Also, how do you know when you’re fully in love? I’m certain I am, but then there are the people, older and wiser, as well as those who have been in relationships for longer, who say that young love never lasts, which in most cases are true… But surely if you want a relationship to work because you love the person, the relationship will work.
4 months doesn’t seem like such a long time to some, but if you compare it to 4 months on your own, it will feel like forever. Personally, it’s a good thing that it feels like 4 months have gone by so quickly and easily, because then hopefully all of the other months and years will go by even faster. Even though it sounds like a bad thing to want time to pass quickly, the way I view it is that the amount of experiences and happiness had in those ‘supposedly’ quick months show how quickly time does fly when you’re happy and having fun! Which will hopefully continue into the future.
Memories and experiences are also something that are fun to collect with the person you love. From random nights in with a camera and a few funny settings, as well as deep conversations about anything and everything to celebrating occasions with your families from both sides of the couple. All moments that occur when you’re in a relationship with the person you love both strengthen your relationship (depending on the occasion that occurred) with them as well
as helping you learn something about each
other in the process. Such as learning new things about them as well as gaining knowledge from their past experiences and things they witnessed.
Learning new things about your partner can be fun and helpful, but it can also be upsetting at the time depending on their past… Even though that might be the case, everything you learn about your lover is something that helps create an emotional bond shared between the two of you that will help keep your relationship at the strength at which it is. I know this because through the 4 months that we’ve been dating, we’ve declared things that aren’t always the best of things in the world to happen or thought of as right. Despite this, we are still able to love each other the way we do because those experiences made us the people we are today and the people we fell in love with.
To many more weeks, months and years…
