I met my boyfriend in college in the Fall and he graduated and moved back home to Maui in May. I am staying with him all of July , and leaving to go see him on June 25 (Friday! ) but...... yesterday was my birthday- and we talked plenty about it prior to it, (basically this whole trip was for my birthday), but guess who didnt call me and wish me a happy birthday- MY BOYFRIEND. I wasnt gonna sit there and call him on MY OWN birthday so I just didnt bother to get in touch with him. That night I couldnt sleep so i text messaged him "you alright?" because i was nervous something had happened.. this morning he text messaged back "hey baby im ok u ok?" and i was like "NO you forgot my birthday.." and he called and apologized and said he felt really bad. He said he was really busy this weekend- but then I had to get off the phone because I started to cry and i didnt want him to know I was crying over it. Whats your opinion on the situation? I want to forgive him but he is the most important thing to me and being "really busy" doesn't cut it for forgetting your girlfirends birthday. What should I do ? What should i say to him? Your opinions would be awesome, thanks...

I have been married 10 years to my wife and I am still taking special events classes that my wife holds once a month. She always has the class the day I have forgotten something. For a marrige to work it has to go both ways so she is taken the "please forgive me I am so stupid classes".

It does not mean he does not love you, he is just a man.
Hey everyone!! :wave:

Had to toss in my two pennies here. Let me duck, so I dont get flamed too bad, but.....birthdays are special days for us. Especially if you are not a Mother (Mother's Day), Father (Father's Day), Veteran (Veteran's Day), or President (hehe...had to throw that in :D )!

Anyway, would YOU have forgotten his birthday? Doubtful. Sorry guys, but my husband had already planned my birthday 6 months in advance. He's already made plans for our anniversary as well. Call me old-fashioned, superficial, whatever you want, but I think it is important to remember those dates!! Those times are to celebrate the day that the wonderful person known as YOU came to be!! Or the day that WE became US! They ARE important. Guys.....they have calendars for a reason. Geez...you check your email, right?? Put the date on the calendar through your email and EMAIL yourself a reminder. I don't care how you remember. But it's important. To forget is like saying "You were not important enough for me to remember."

So come on you men!! You can remember what channel the GAME is on!! If you got a personal invite to the Playboy mansion, you Certainly wouldn't forget when you were supposed to go!!! So this "Oh, I'm a man, I'm entitled to forget things that are important to you and should not be held responsible for any hurt feelings..." Pffffffffft! :nono:

Anyway, I'm gonna duck on out now....*grabs flame-retardant gear*
