She hit me up sometime in August and asked me what are my thoughts on going out and celebrating it.
I thought not, and the biggest reason I think not is because we are only dating. I don't see any significance in celebrating the fact that we've been dating a year.
During our anniversary dinner, I asked Jeremiah what a few things were that he learned throughout the year. Don’t answer every call and text that comes in while you’re together.

The Wedding Anniversary Table is well known, but what about couples who are dating?
It's common for couples to exchange gifts on the monthly and yearly anniversaries of when they first met, or when they had their first date.
No cheating, no “breaks”, not even too many silent treatments. From the first date, when I walked up in a navy shirt and black shorts, the look on her face said enough. Sure, some guys are able to blend the colors and pull it off in the magazines. It can be as simple as opening the car door, or spending time with her family when she’s gone, or not farting in her car. Making yourself vulnerable makes you so much stronger in her eyes.
The time flies when you are in a healthy, fun partnership. His answers were so random and awesome and honest, I had to share. It’s not okay, and it can’t be passed as fashion sense. No matter how close those shades are, she will notice. Worshipping together draws you out of the relationship valleys and sets both of your feet on solid ground. Calling on the King and learning how to make Him the center of your focus is, and will always be, the most important thing in any relationship.
Romance is both about the everyday little moment of spontaneity ( and well done you for going for thsoe) but markers are a symbol , just as marriage is a symbol. Just be sure you realize that the other party may also like to do things when they are moved to and dont dismiss their desire as alway fleeting. However since you see the relationship as long term, I see no harm in a nice dinner or glass of bubbly.

It's not like she is asking for you to take her around the world or buy her Diamonds is it ? I've know people that celebrate their 3 month, 6 month etc.
Relationships are about making the other person happy aren't they ? For goodness sake you can see yourself marrying her one day but you begrudge her one evening of Romance ?!?! The only thing that raises thought about what you said was : I like to do things when I am moved to do something, guaranteeing that both parties will enjoy the experience, over someone else's fleeting desire to consider every move we make 'special'.
The funny thing is when she asked me my thoughts on doing something for the one year, and I said "Not likely", she said "I knew that's what you would say". I'm not being mean, but really I don't see anything special about dating for a year.
