๐Ÿ™ I know how you feel!  I actually told my bf not to get me anything for my birthday last May.  Despite my best efforts, I *always* get my hopes up.  So, I just told him I wanted him to use his money on something for our house instead of spending it on me.  We went out to dinner and had a few drinks then rented a movie, so it was still a really great day ๐Ÿ™‚

I know how you feel and this is the perfect place to vent! My SO and I had a talk like this last night where I cried. I hated I cried, but it just came out of nowhere. We got through it all and I feel a lot better and positive. Maybe because I got it out instead of hiding it. *shrugs*

I’m very sorry about your grandfather’s illness.

I’m tired of waiting, I’m tired of wondering what the hell the hold up is, I tired of being patient and reasonable.”

Man oh man… I think that Every. Single. Day. Eventually you just break down and cry. It’s hard not to! It’s great having websites like this to vent on. Men like to have things spelled out for them… Seriously. If you want a ring for your birthday, then tell him that you want a ring for your birthday! He can’t get mad… After all, he asked what you wanted, right? Never ask a guy to surprise you because 9 times out of 10 you will be disappointed. Take my b-day last year for example: My b/f asked me what I wanted and I said: “I don’t know… Surprise me!” You know what I got? Nothing. He got me one of those cards that play music and we went for dinner. We ALWAYS go out for dinner so it was no big deal at all. But he got me NOTHING. No gift card to a store, no flowers… NOTHING. I balled my eyes out! He didn’t even buy me a drink when we went out with friends later that night.

So! My point is: If you want something, tell him exactly what you want. That way he can’t turn around and say that you never said anything. You know what you want, and if you can’t get it here, then move onto someone who CAN. Sorry for the harsh advice… I’m just trying to help out and be honest ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck! Have a good trip! We’ll miss you….

I’m glad you got it out as well, we need to vent.

@Gwen von D: You are absolutely right, you’ve gotta tell them what you want!

I’m stupid, I told my Boyfriend or Best Friend I wanted these concert tix for my birthday, and he got them, and flights, and arranged a nice weekend for my birthday. I should have asked for a ring! Dammit.
