    Im engaged now but our one year dating anniversary passed before we got engaged. To celebrate it, he took me out to dinner to a really, really romantic restaurant and we had a gorgeous meal together. We also surprised each other with some rather long poems that we had written for each other (neither of us knew the other was writing a poem so it was a really lovely surprise when we exchanged them). To this day when I read his poem I get tears in my eyes at the amount of thought and effort he put into crafting those words.

    Of course you should celebrate it - why on Earth not?

    I hope you arent the type who doesnt "buy into" advertising when it comes to spending money on your partner - but are happy to "buy into" advertising when it comes to spending money on yourself.

    Women don't love flowers and jewelry because they are advertised - we love them cause their beautiful to look at and we feel good around flowers or wearing jewelry.

    I feel really sad for women with partners who don't appreciate that.

    I mean for gods sake - if they launched a decade long add campaigne which saw gorgeous looking handsome men try to romance their partners with giant and expensive cockroaches - I don't think we'd all be hoping our men would buy us similar cockroaches.

    It's not all about the advertising - advertising caters to what we want just as much as our wants are fueled by advertising. Its not fair to ignore half of that equation
