Birthdays are very special for most of us. It’s the one day in the year when we get tons of (maybe undeserved) attention and respect from others, and sometimes with gifts! Even if you’re not the kind of person to make a big deal out of your birthday, you usually expect some kind of acknowledgement. It just shows that people care about your special day.
So HOW DARE he forget your birthday, right? Does he just not care about you at all? Are your feelings unimportant to him? While your thinking is completely valid and understandable, you might be able to calm your fury if you consider a few things first:
Your birthday means something different to you than it does to your boyfriend. This doesn’t mean that it’s meaningless to him, just that he sees it differently.
You may see his forgetfulness as a sign that he doesn’t think about you or care about you enough. He might see his forgetfulness as a sign that he just tends to forget what the date is on most days.
So what to do if he forget?
– Let him you know that you are disappointed
– Give him a “cold treatment” for the upcoming 3 days 😀
– Ask him to make it up for you, for example, ask him to cook for you the whole week 😀
