Aw hun HUGS.  I know you really put a lot of thought into it, but I’ve had nights like this. Balancing, really trying hard to make things special, but them just not working out as planned. Maybe just go tell him… sweetie, it’s your birthday, and you’re not feeling well, but I really wanted to make sure you had a special day… it is important to me. Maybe he can come up with an idea, given the circumstances, that will make his day a bit brighter and make you feel like you accomplished your mission. Not real great advice, but just know we all have these days, and while they are not the highlight of our relationships, we have to learn how to manage them so that they don’t ruin our day/night/week or build up frustrations. If there’s nothing you can do, go do something fun for you. I like  wandering around Target, it always makes may day a bit brighter ๐Ÿ˜€

Hey, my guy does this roughly 1/3 of the time I try to do something special for him.  Put his pie aside, go give him a back rub (or foot rub), and enjoy his company.  My guy likes it when I’m playing computer games in the same room.  *shrugs*  Maybe grab some pepto-bismol or saltines and 7up, depending on the stomach upset…

This sucks. It is disappointing to have great plans for a special night that don’t work out. Maybe you can have a re-do on his Birthday on Sunday or next Monday. I hope both of you are feeling better tomorrow. 

It sounds like you’re a great girlfriend who really cares a lot about him- he’s lucky to have you!

Oh god I know exactly how you feel… Nearly the excat thing happened to me at my bf’s birthday in april… Birthdays are a really big deal to me and I was so upset!

I think you should just do what I did. Grab a glass of wine and eat a large slice of delicious cake yourself! I think you are allowed to be upset but don;t take it out on him, cos it’s obviously not his fault (I know you know that, but sometimes it’s hard to remember). In the end, I explained to my bf why I was upset and we re-planned a birthday evening later when he felt better and it was more of a nice date-night for both of us.

You’re a great Girlfriend, why didn’t you say anything? Communication is key. It sounds like you felt unappreciated, like when we wear the sexy lingerie get our hair and feet done on a special night and the bf doesn’t even notice. Just talk to him and I am sure you will feel better.
