What To Do if My Boyfriend Forgot My Birthday?

You have the right to be really angry with your boyfriend for forgetting your birthday. Guys are not good with dates many donít even remember their own birthdays, then there are other guys who really donít place a lot of significance on celebrating birthdays in general. Whatever be the case, itís definitely extremely careless of him to forget his girlfriendís birthday.

Most girls are quite enthusiastic about their birthday unlike majority of guys who mostly donít care much for theirs. But guys and girls alike like to be wished on their birthday and feel happy if they are given a present or a party. So unless heís extremely forgetful there is no excuse for not remembering your birthday. It can be really hurtful when someone close to you forgets your birthday.

It can be equally hurting if your boyfriend does not get you a birthday gift. It could well mean that heís either too busy with his own life and is losing out on "attraction" towards you or he is just too miserly, itís usually the former.

What Should You Do?

So what should you do if your boyfriend forgets your birthday?

Let him know that you are really hurt

You donít have to hide your feelings about him forgetting your birthday. Let him know how bad you felt about him not remembering to wish you on a day which is special for you. Itís important that he realizes what this means to you or else he would repeat the same next year.

Give him "cold" treatment for a week

This may sound really harsh but such carelessness deserves a slightly tough punishment. Ground him for a week, no calls and definitely no physical intimacy. He is sure to remember your birthday the next time on once he sees the treatment you meted out for his forgetfulness. You donít have to do this if you donít want to after all you have to go through a tough time too if you miss him.

Ask him to make it up to you

Well he forgot your birthday so now he has to make amends. You can make him do anything that you wish under the pretext that he needs to make up for his mistake. Ask him to cook for you or take you out to a holiday spot or anything else that your heart desires.

Go on a birthday party without him

This is again something you donít have to do if it ends up spoiling your day, but if you want to show him your anger you can keep him out of your birthday party and celebrate it with your friends and family. This can have a few repercussions on your relationship, so take a calculated decision on this. Remember that some guys are really forgetful of dates, so it may be a bit harsh on him.

Re-evaluate your relationship

If he has been acting distant and cold lately and forgetting your birthday is just one of the many instances where he has failed to show up for you, then you might want to take a closer look at your relationship. The fact remains that when a guy really digs his girl his is quite unlikely to forget her birthday. If heís forgotten your birthday or if he fails to get you a birthday gift, these could well be indications of a failing relationship.

Relationship takes effort and dedication to maintain. Small acts of carelessness can leave the other person feeling hurt and pained especially because the relationship means so much to them. You can avoid yourself a lot of hurt by reminding your boyfriend of your birthday a day before, just so you donít feel let down if he has forgotten it, this is especially required if your boyfriend has a problem with remembering dates.
