    date in sentence

    Are the sentences correct? "Forever yours since 1.11.2014" and "1.11.2014 started my only future".
    Thank you!

    Re: date in sentence

    Welcome to the forum.

    The first is OK. The second doesn't make any sense.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: date in sentence

    The way it is written, I can't tell if it is January 11 or November 1.

    Re: date in sentence

    Thank you for the answer. I read that "since" with the date mean "from that date till today", so I was confused. I wanted to say that from the 1st November I'll be forever his - but have just limited amount of words for using.

    Re: date in sentence

    The sentiment in your first was clear. It is just not a sentence; but it may not have had to be.

    Yes, it's not supossed to be real sentence - it's just a sign on bracelet. But I still want it to be right.

    Re: date in sentence

    I assume the first was to be written in a card or at the end of a love letter or similar, so I didn't expect it to be a full sentence. To this day, I still forget that AmE reverses the date so to me, that only meant the 1st of November 2014.
