Okay…so he didn’t completely forget. He did wish me happy birthday today, but it wasn’t until I had been up for over an hour. I’m pretty sure he remembered when he looked at his facebook and saw everyone wishing me happy birthday.
He didn’t get me me a card or a present. I don’t expect anything expensive, but you would have thought at least a card. He is taking me out to dinner tonight, but I’m making all the plans for it. And no, I know he isn’t waiting until tonight, because he told me he forgot to get me a card.
So far…not a very good birthday.

Awww big hugs. I’m always prepared for a let down on my birthday. FH just isn’t into celebrating them like I am. Last year was my big 30th, and I was hoping for something. But I think we went to Lowe’s and to Buffalo Wild Wings. With my birthday rapidly approaching this year, I am hoping for a kiss and a happy birthday. I told him I wanted a birthday cake too. HAha….but happy birthday, try and do something today that makes you happy!

@Loribeth: Ouch…I’m sorry! I would be pretty upset if Darling Husband forgot to get me a card for my birthday and admitted it to me. At least try to play it off and get me something for later tonight! I hope you enjoy your birthday dinner, and he definitely has some butt kissing to do!

Thank you, everyone!
He did go out an buy me a card and also apologized in the card.
I told him he wouldn’t have forgotten my birthday if I were a football game. I could tell I hit home with that one.
I did go out shopping and bought myself a pair of shoes. I almost bought myself a Coach bag too, and I’m kind of regretting now that I didn’t!!!

I would be upset too… but then again we are the kind of people who talk about birthdays in advance.
If there was no mention of it in the weeks or days leading up to it I can see how it may have slipped his mind. MEN!! I swear!
Yell at him! Say ummm did you forget my birthday?! Shame on you!! ( In a playful way)

My Fiance didn’t get me a card or gift for my birthday on the holiday weekend. He did take me to dinner and woke me up to say happy birthday on his way out the door for work though.

Oh no! I’m so sorry. 🙁 Maybe it’s the child in me but I look forward to birthdays and holidays so much and I always get excited for my presents, especially from my SO. It’s just a habit that we have to put a lot of effort into those days so I would be beyond hurt if he ever did this.
For what it’s worth, HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! May you have many more that are filled with fun and laughter and happiness.
P.S. You should have gotten that Coach bag.
P.P.S. The day isn’t over yet. He may surprise you still.

I’m so sorry your feelings are hurt! Give him time to make it up to you. And buy yourself something nice. 🙂
Honestly, I’m TERRIBLE w/birthdays and anniversaries, even if reminded. So it is possible to really love someone and just plain forget somehow (despite constant remidners). I even forget my own birthday!! And I already got mixed up on my anniversay and I just got married six months ago!!
