What To Do For 3 Year Anniversary?

Not sure if you'd call it an anniversary, but yea haha.

I've been with the same girl for 3 years this friday. For some reason, I'm drawing blanks this year on what to do (I'm usually creative, but with school and everything going on, it's hard to think straight and come up with good ideas). I'm trying to run with the numbers 3 and/or 36 (years/months), but I'm not coming up with anything good.

What have you guys done in the past?

Thanks!

you gotta do you man. i don't think you would want your girl to find out that you went on soompi forums to get anniversary ideas. sometimes ideas will just come to you when you least expect it. g'luck

Get her a yorkie or maltese. I think it's cute.

3 years is big, infact every year is big, and every month in the first year of dating is big, at least for me. :D

To make the experience more memorable and meaningful, it is best that you do something that comes from you, not from anyone else. :)

How about renewing the warranty on her car?

it doesnt have to just be related to 3 or 36 months. do her a scrapbook! its creative, unless she's totally not into memories/those sort of things... otherwise it might be a great idea. get creative, put yourself in the mind of a happy go lucky girl, and cut n paste and stick and build a prettyyyyyyyy page for her haha. and then add some writing in relating tot hat picture or whatever it is on that page so that when she reads it she can be reminded of that day /picture's memory.

Aww.. it's okay for him to get advice online... (: I think you should make dinner on Friday. Well, that's what I would want. My bf doesn't do anything special for me. I'm the one that sets up a reservation to eat out somewhere. :/ But he does give me roses. Last year was our 2nd anniversary and he gave me 2 roses to represent how long we've been dating. Maybe this year he'll give me 3. Oh, he better!

Actually, that is such a great idea. I would like that. Totally creative, special, and personal for you guys. (:

Hahah.. aww.. like I'm sure he put much thought into a rose. Well if he gives me any roses this year, it will be special to me no matter what, b/c he didnt get me anything for Valentines! (He gave me a box of chocolate a week later and told me b/c it was on sale!) LOL

:lol:

I was actually thinking of tinting her car (because I think she wants this more than ANYTHING now), but that's more of a bday/christmas gift... Unless I can go to her house early in the morning, grab her keys, get it tinted, and as we walk out to her car to go out to eat, tell her "Sorry I didn't really get you anything this year". :)

This is my back up plan, but I've got to decide tonight, otherwise the tinting place near my house will be booked.

And yea, I know I shouldn't rely on Soompi, I never have for this kind of thing, but I've really been busy with other things and kept putting off "thinking about what to do" lol.

*edit: that collage thing is interesting, I think it's a bit childish PERSONALLY, but it's not about me. I think she might like something like that. Problem is she has all the pictures of us.

Ultimately the best idea is gonna come from yourself based on your knowledge of her as a person and your intimacy with her, inside jokes, etc. Try to be personal, rather than getting something that you can buy in a store. Cause really, it isn't like she can't just go and buy it herself.

Or how about order 3 pepperoni pizzas, I know that I'd be floored by that gesture.

But that's just only me.

Well, 3 years is a long time. Why not get her a ring and pop the question? Hahah. Jk. :)

Go on a trip! Or take her to places where you guys have good memories or something. I think 3 years or any years should be spent reminiscing and reminding eachother how much you love eachother. I don't mean saying I love you every single second but really making her feel you love her.

yeah what someone said about you knowing her personally, and the extent to her inside jokes, personality does play bearing. THe scrapbook idea is just base don a general idea/picture of girls, and most who are attached who would be :blush: to see all your memories creatively scrapbooked onto a page. Its more breathtaking because of the creativity and the lack of social norm to see a "guy" do something like this.. cause face it how many guys scrapbook normally? Not many.. not that I see anything wrong with it.

But yeah I agree 3 years seems like ages. I would love to have hit that figure with my gf... she's my first and we're already running bumpy roads with our first yr coming up... so yeah 3 yrs is a long time. Its not a gift/idea, but just advice... to always cherish and never take her for granted... 3 years is a long time.. some of us struggling to make it there are so envious you have no idea =)

that said if we do end up surviving 3 yrs as well despite our current turmoil, I'll tint her car just like you... haha jk :D although only you know your gf the best and if tinting gets the job done yeah sure.. but for my understandign of most girly girls i didnt think tinting was too personalised or romantic etc tbh? just my 5 cents. Just make sure you do somethign that shows effort, thought, or best still caters to what you know abotu her because it reinforces that you pay attention to her.
