When you are in a relationship, it can be extremely difficult to keep track of all the dates that you need to remember when you are going about your daily life. However, it can be upsetting for your partner if you forget a date that is important to you both. Therefore, to ensure that you can take every single opportunity available to make them feel special, here are some of the most important dates that you should remember when you are in a relationship.
One of the most important annual events for couples is Valentine’s Day, as this is a day where love is celebrated. Many couples choose to use this as an opportunity to go on a special date and swap gifts. Therefore, if you want to reaffirm your love for your partner this Valentine’s day, you should consider getting Valentines gifts for him or her, booking a table at your favorite restaurant, returning to the place that you first met, or heading to the theater. You might even decide to get away on a short vacation which can allow you to focus on romance away from the pressures of your work and family life.
Their birthday is an important day of the year as this is a day that is totally focused on them and is an opportunity to celebrate the person that you love. Therefore, if their birthday is coming up, you should consider hosting a party for them, even if this is not a surprise. If you are not sure what gift to get them, you might consider speaking to their family about the gifts that they would most like to receive. You should also consider investing in – or making- a cake for them, with an appropriate number of candles, and decorating the house with banners and balloons. Remember too that some people like a lot of fuss and others prefer a quieter time as a celebration.
Your First Date
Even if you are not married, you must remember the date of the first time that you met or the first time that you went on a date, as this was a key turning point in both of your lives and usually holds great meaning to you both. To celebrate this occasion, you might decide to re-enact your first date, make them a meal, enjoy a cheesy date idea, such as a picnic, or take part in a class together. This can then help you to re-experience the excitement and anticipation of the first time that you met.
Remembering dates is not always simple, even if you remember and find meaning in the occasion itself. This is especially difficult if these dates are personal to you, rather than commercial dates that are mentioned by everyone in the lead-up to them. Therefore, you should make sure that you keep a calendar filled with these dates and that you set reminders on your phone to alert you to the occasion in plenty of time to celebrate it properly.
