@Galang_Gyal:  Vent, cry, kick, scream, do whatever it takes on days like these (we all have them).  It sucks that your friends aren’t so great about your birthday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself to something nice.  Unfortunately, it seems like bad luck doesn’t ever come in small doses, but I’m really hoping that next week is much better for you.  Plus you can always come on WB to get a little love and vent your heart out.  Happy Birthday *HUGS*

You need some new friends!!!! Stop investing in these other girls. I’m not saying stop being friends with them….. You can totally stay friends with them, but if you have other friends too you won’t rely on them. 🙂 …

Just get new BETTER friends. 1 GOOD friend is better than 10 shitty ones.

@Galang_Gyal:  Right there with you!  I absolutely DREAD my birthday every year and it is usually the most depressing day of the year for me. I have the same issues with my “friends” — they are always better friends with eachother than they are with me. They have extravagant bday plans that I feel entitled to go to and buy them something, but when it comes to mine, its a hassle to even get them to come out or even CALL me.

 I am so sorry you are having a bad week and crappy birthday. I really hope things get better for you… It helps me to think that itll be over in less then 24 hours…. 🙂

@Galang_Gyal:  Happy Birthday!

I don’t think you are wrong to feel that way. I won’t bore you with details but when I was in college I was friends with girls who were very much like this (although they were always very generous w/gifts in the beginning, I must say). But for everyone else’s birthday, especially theirs, it would be let’s do a trip, let’s go on a cruise, let’s do this. I asked them to come out for dinner and they wouldn’t have the money – for a burger, at a Friendlys. Okay…

Somewhat one sided friendships are hard and you may eventually, like me, decide you are better off without them. You don’t deserve to have friends that treat you less than wonderful. You deserve friends who respect you, want you to be happy, and are genuine. I didn’t read your other threads, so I don’t want to speak out of place, but it doesn’t sound like they are as considerate of your feelings as you are of theirs. And from experience, that is their loss.

I wish you a happy birthday. Treat yourself to things that make you happy. And in time, think about getting out there in new social settings and making some new girlfriends who let you shine.
