Many couples celebrate every anniversary of their relationships with a usual candlelight dinner and traditional gifts. Of course, there is no shame in doing this, but why not trying something unusual?
They give you the impression that you had it anger, yelling, assault coming and deserved the anger, violence, pouting, or physical display of aggression. You need privacy to think alone about all these innovations, and it is quite natural. Obviously, you are not obliged to buy gifts and if your significant other forces you to, maybe your relationship requires some kind of revision. You will also hear of violence in their life. You really, really, really know each other now. However, often in order to understand that, you need to have maturity and experience in the relationship. You can pay for the scuba-diving or horse riding lessons, buy a musical instrument and so on.
When breaking traditional rules you can break the uniformity of your relationships and get more unforgettable memories to think back about when celebrating every new anniversary. Impress your partner by celebrating the next anniversary not with gifts, but with a shared experience that the two of you will remember for the rest of your lives.
Alternatively, you can visit 2 different places in 2 days. Try to fill these days not only with love and romance, but also with exciting adventures that none of you will ever forget.
This is a good opportunity to try something new, something that you have never dared to do before. These new emotions will tie you together for many years to come. When planning a celebration, make number 2 the chief player. Is she a morning person?
Where was he born? These basic questions are key to truly knowing this person you spend so much time with.
You likely know by now if your partner enjoys a three-course meal on date night or prefers to drive thru at Taco Bell, but by now, you should also know most of the fun things about your loved one. Does she have any unique hobbies? Does he still have a major crush on Britney Spears?
These fun tidbits will make you feel like you truly know your boo, inside and out. You know better than anyone how hard a relationship can be. But, you made it work!
Now, go have some celebratory sex. Because you totally can. The cover and theme for my newest book was inspired by the concept of kintsugi. All that is dark or cracked within us has the capacity to be fixed, to be filled with light.
We are never broken. We are always becoming.
