So, it is closing in on the day that my boyfriend and I first "met" online. We met through OKCupid, neither of us was really looking for a relationship, but we messaged eachother pretty much all day for a week, then arranged to meet in person, and almost immediately started dating.

While I think it's silly, I'm still sorta wanting to commemorate the occasion by doing something for him.

I went on the site and copy-pasted all of our messages back and forth so I would be sure to save them recently, and I thought about doing something with them, maybe take some memorable things that were said (like our conversation about the zombie novel I was working on at the time that never took off, or the minor flirting that went on, and put them on scraps of paper and...

I have no idea. There's a LOT of these messages (70+ from each of us, so about 130 or so) and I want to do something entertaining with it.

I have a bit of time, just looking for ideas.

He's REALLY into roleplay gaming and puzzles, and has recently mentioned he wants a wallet size photo of me for his wallet, so I'm thinking about adding some photos for him to have. Unfortunately I only have one of us.

Scrapbooks always seem to go down well. Why don't you make a mini scrapbook with quotes of some of the things you said to each other?

How about a picture frame? You could collage it with your conversation logs and put pictures of characters from RPGs you both enjoy on it too.

I made magnetic poetry from emails my boyfriend and I sent back and forth. All the words in the poetry came from the messages. That was pretty neat Smiley

Its easy, you can either get the magnetic printer paper or just glue sheets of paper you printed onto the magnets and cut them out Smiley
