Aww, hunnie. He was a total jackalope. My birthday always ends up total crap, too. So I try to just not do anything for it, OR let anybody do anything for it. You should go out to dinner for Olive Garden by yourself this week.

That sucks! It sounds like he was being incredibly thoughtless. It was your bday and he should have taken you to the restaurant wantEd! And texting throughout dinner…sounds like he was being a total jackass

Sounds like you guys have a disconnect somewhere and are going through a rough patch.

Maybe you guys need a romantic weekend away or staycation to reignite the passion.

I will say to let him try and make it up to you. Give him the benefit of the doubt.

Oh Sweetie.  I hate birthdays too.  Do your best to be patient with Darling Husband and explain your feelings and how you would like things to go, how what he did made you feel like X, and try to come up with some solutions or ideas on how to address these things.  It really is hard when you feel like you are on someone else’s “turf” or kind of implanted in their life.  Also think about ways to meet people that are not just lifelong friends of his (local clubs? hobbies? community classes?) so that you can meet some people of your own.  Hugs.

I don’t know. I think this is a classic case of unrealistic expectations after poor communication and a dash of immaturity.

If you didn’t make concrete plans with him to redo the birthday celebration, he can’t read your mind, and of course he said yes to whomever offered up something interesting to do. He probably figured that Sunday would be a less than optimal night to do it up. Ask him when you guys should do a do-over. And then stop assuming communication has happened in your relationship. Communication is the most important part of a marriage….better get some practice in now.

This is why I hate birthdays.  Mine is coming up in two weeks and I almost dread it.  My worst birthday was when I was 17.  I was living with my ex and the family in a different state (long story).  Anyways, no one bought me anything or acknowledged it was my birthday.  Not even my ex.  I went out to buy my own ice cream birthday cake.  It was heartbreaking. 

I’ve always had bad ones, but that was definitely worst.
