    So our one year anniversary is coming up. We got to know each other in January 2011 and then started fooling around in early June 2011 but things weren't official until beginning of July 2011. He's a real great guy and things just get better over time. I think that I couldn't have been more lucky.

    Anyways, this Friday we are going out for nice seafood dinner in town to celebrate. Then in mid July we are spending three days in New York City! Can't wait.

    What did you guys do for your anniversaries?

    Well Congratulations icon_smile.gif

    As a start, I asked my partner if i can send him gifts to his office and he was cool with it. I sent flowers, balloons and a chocolate cake to his office icon_smile.gif

    He was happy. I was happy icon_smile.gif

    Well I'll have to admit, we've explored interesting stuff over the years, but never fucking a dinner. icon_lol.gif

    I'm guessing lasagna cooled off enough would be an option? icon_lol.gif

    Wait, one year? Oh. Gay couples never last a year, so this is one of those trick questions, right? no, most gay men celebrate all anniversaries, day/week/month like the above baboon said, by fucking, because that's the only way gay men can express love, right?
    Thus, long term relationships last just a little longer than a decent rash.

    Is this a form of satire? Or is your own post a trick question?

    I'm not sure how you explain guys being together 30 and 40 years, even longer. Our best friends are at 30 even, and an RJer here is at 42, I've had dinner with him and his partner a couple of times. My partner & I are the shortest among our friends, having only met a little over 5 years ago.

    So your statement confuses me, as it's factually untrue. Is it meant to discourage the OP? Because most of us would tell him the opposite, and congratulate him and his BF.

    Big ups to OP and your bf. Long may you run.

    Having celebrated 36 anniversaries with my husband, nice dinner followed by nice love-making is still the favorite celebration.

    I recommend. icon_smile.gif

    Not trying to impose but man I sure hope I can do that long when I'm older. Much props to 36 years.

    Why so cynical??? Tell us your story. We are hear to listen, discuss and resolve. Shine a light if you will on the problem with hopes of resolving. Online group therapy.

    ahhh, just kidding but maybe a little truth.

    CrankySpice saidArt, you're going to have to develop some sechel. Really.

    No, I was taught that in interpersonal communications the responsibility for comprehension rests primarily with the sender of the message, not the receiver. And my concern is for the OP, anyway, not for me. Maybe he's the one who needs sechel? Because with or without sechel, I still find smartmoney's post obtuse, to say the least. And I did allow for a more benign explanation of it, than what some others here have drawn from it. Perhaps you can instruct us all in sechel.

    Congratulations to the OP!

    As others have mentioned, a nice dinner and a nice roll in the hay (not necessarily in that order) are a great way to celebrate an anniversary. Go someplace or have something or do something a little out of the ordinary; it's a special occasion, after all, though you don't need to go overboard.

    Congratulations to you and ur man!

    My bf and I both knew our (4th) anniversary was coming up, but didn't pinpoint it to the exact date until it has passed.. So, we didn't really celebrate at all.

    Congratulations on the one year mark - I hope you have a wonderful anniversary.

    To reach the 36 year mark on a relationship is really impressive. One day hopefully me too. icon_biggrin.gif

    We're coming right up on our 2nd anniversary of living together, but we've known each other for a few years longer (having met here in Forums). To celebrate this anniversary we'll head up to the Napa Valley (or the other direction to Carmel/Pebble Beach - - - whichever he might like best).

    You don't know what you're missing out on.


    "American Pie" got it all wrong... they skipped right to dessert. You have to start with the salad... an oily vinaigrette serves as lube for everything else. icon_lol.gif
