anticipation + date


You know when you don’t really give yourself enough time to miss someone, and seeing them becomes part of your routine, and it’s still really really lovely, but there’s no burning desire to see them?  This word is the opposite of that. … Sort of.  This word is when you have a date that’s far enough in the future that you can look forward to seeing a person.  The point of an anticidate is to prevent anxiety and obsession. Instead, it allows you to free your mind from the person until said date occurs.



  • How much time is necessary / optimal between anticidates?
  • Does that time decrease or increase as you’ve been dating someone longer?
  • Can this concept be applied to casual friendships too?
