It's been eighteen years since we started dating, and now we're married, we have a house, we have two kids . . . it's been good and bad, fun times and hard times, but I'm glad I picked you and you picked me. You are still my best friend, my closest confidant, the person who knows almost all of my secrets. I still like talking to you on the phone. The smell of Juicy Fruit gum will always remind me of you. I love you. Happy Anniversary!
(OK, so the 'dating anniversary' may not be important in your relationship, but when you date for five years before you get married, it's darn important. Besides, it's my blog.)
