bzbride2277:  Personally, I totally get where you’re coming from. My SO lacks in the romance department sometimes and while he’s never forgotten my birthday/anniversary/etc, he has, occasionally, slacked. I’ve never lost my socks over it but I’ve always let him know I wasn’t happy! 

You made a sacrifice for your trip/anniversary. Oktoberfest is by no definition romantic. I would also argue it was more of your gift to him if you did the planning/booking. You sound like you tried to communicate your expectations to him but just didn’t get through? I’ve had this problem. You say you expressed dissapointment when he didn’t get you a card or anything and he said he would make it up to you but didn’t. Then he puked on you.

I also understand how him forgetting about the letters would just really push you over the edge at that point. I think I would be really upset if I were you. My only thoughts would be to try and express as calmly as you can to him how hurt you felt that he didn’t make more of an effort and try to make him understand this situation from your viewpoint (ie, the trip was more for him than you). Hope you feel better!
