A question in the forums today got me thinking about dating anniversaries. Drew and I have one — May 5th, which also happens to be my mom’s birthday. It’s the day we met and the day of our first date and first kiss and all of that (we have a few anniversaries, actually). Deciding on a dating anniversary is easy if you meet on a blind date and then date consistently from then on. But what about those of you who didn’t meet on blind dates or whose dating trajectories weren’t as linear? Do you celebrate an anniversary? And if so, how do you decide on a date?
