anniversary expectations

Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
ive been dating this guy for almost a year now... i am happy and contented on what we currently have as far as the relationship is concern... now that our 1st yr anniversary is coming up, i cant help myself to get excited and ask my bf about any plans that he has for that special day... i am not expecting anything expensive... i just want to feel special that day... but so far with only 3 weeks away, he doesnt have any idea fact when i asked him what are we gonna do that day, he said he has a lot of things in mind and i should help him think on what to do... i was disappointed already coz i feel like i have to make myself happy... if i dont help him think, we might end up doing nothing and me feeling sad and disappointed.. this is going to be the first time for both of us to reach one year in a relationship.. should i expect something, even just a card? do i have the right to be mad if i dont feel somehow special that day.. i feel like he is not excited.. Advice
Tell him what you want. Then he will be clear on what he has to do and won't be confused by it all. Suggestions: tell him you want a card, some flowers, and dinner at a nice restaurant. Also you want something that he thinks of on his own, whatever it might be.

Anniversaries, of course, are two-way streets. You need to figure out what to do to make him feel special too. If money is tight, you could make his favorite home cooked meal and save on money that way. Don't do too much or his efforts might look too little.

Good luck! George
