This was especially high tech back in the day (given that we both had feature phones) and what I considered to be the most thoughtful gift ever (given that we are both nerds).To celebrate our six year anniversary, I decided to take his present to the next level.
We have been working in the international dating industry since 2002, we have helped hundreds of men from Europe, Australia, USA, Middle East, Canada, Japan and South America met their Ukrainian and Russian wives.We don’t offer you an email forwarding service or a website based mailing system.Our men members are able to get in direct contact and can access all the ladies personal contact details (emails, phone numbers, postal addresses, Skype).Way back in October 2008, my now husband and I went on our first date.On our one year anniversary, his gift to me was a Word doc of all of our text messages since our first date (what he likes to refer to as #thegiftofdata).Since the content of our text messages changed so much, I decided to look and see if the time of day we’d send text messages to each other changed as well.
I focused on the messages we sent each other during the month after our first date, our engagement and our wedding.
Since we were new in our relationship, we made sure the things we said were interesting and thoughtful.
As our relationship progressed, we spent more time together and got more comfortable with each other.
We’d often message the other person to see what they were doing or tell them that we were thinking of them.
As a married couple, since we’re together all the time, we set up date nights and say sweet things to each other in person, so texting is mostly used to confirm logistics or share random thoughts.
I took a look at all of our text messages from our first year of dating and compared them with our text messages from the past year as an engaged couple and then newlyweds.
