3 Years On

Due to a friend's question about exactly when Matcha-kun and I started dating, I realized it has now been 3 years... give or take a bit.

That odd 'bit' is due to a couple reasons. The first being that I am terrible at remembering dates and anniversaries. Hence, my mental image and timeline of our dating is a biiiiit fuzzy.

The second is that, being two very different types, we have different concepts of when our relationship started.
Matcha-kun, in typical decisive Matcha-kun fashion, feels that we started our relationship on the first date. I, being more cautious and undecided, think that it was closer to the 7th or 8th. Not that it truly matters, but it does make for an amusing conversation.

My coworkers seem vaguely concerned about this. It is commonly thought that women are the ones that care about anniversaries, special holidays and other 'romantic' dates. But really, I don't mind. I much prefer daily kindness and care to a few expensive dates throughout the year.
And when does a relationship truly start anyway? First kiss? After an explicit agreement? After surviving the first fight? I think there are various stages in any long term relationship, and those transitions are equally worthy of being remembered...even if you can't pinpoint an exact date.


  1. The question when a relationship truly starts is not easy to answer, I guess. In my case, due to some reasons we "officially" started dating 4 months after our first date, but I still think our "relationship" started on that very first date. (Additionally, that date was on Christmas day, so like this we also have a good reason to go on an expensive Christmas dinner-date ;))

    1. Hey DD, just as well to choose a memorable date😜❤️

  2. Integrating 2 day-to-day lives in a setting is at very best difficult. Integrating 2 day-to-day lives which can be inside individual turmoil, in individual paths, sufficient reason for individual ideas in relation to lifetime doesn't a new like magic make a satisfied lifetime. Relationships tend to be regular function
