    We all getting older, so it's not something we look forward to celebrate. But still, would you get mad if he forgot your birthday?

    I've never been big on making a huge deal out of birthdays, but I wouldn't be happy if he forgot. It's not something I'd forget, so I'd expect the same from him.

    I would think a death sentence appropriate for this offense.

    Is it something that is important to you?

    I guess it would depend on how long you have been together and if he ever really knew when your birthday was. If you've been together for more than a year...yeah I'd be a little upset and let him know it too! If it has been less than a year...I think I would not be too upset, but let hin know in a more subtle way....maybe something along the lines of ..." Thanks for not making a big deal out of my birthday on Saturday. I have always wanted to not have it be such a "big day".... or what ever your spin might be. Something subtle, but enought to make the point. By the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (belated)

    Honestly I forget my own birthday so I will probably forget everyone else's, it really is not a prevalent factor in my life so I would say no. Honestly if anyone should be celebrated on that day it should be your mother not you. I mean yes it was the day we popped out of the womb but we didn't do anything special except not die. If anything should be remembered it is your anniversary, that is a day the celebrated the love between two people and is mile marker for you. I would much rather count the years I have been happy with my bf, than watch the years as a countdown to my death. Just my opinion though

    Yes..I would be mad because this is the one person who should remember it and want to do something special on that day...Have had that happen to me once and felt bad for a week when everyone said they didn't have the time ...Like I said I would be more hurt than mad that they did not have the time to remember....

    It would be an indicator to me. I would be upset, but more about the fact it indicated he did't feel it a priority to remember. Since its an important day in my life... I'd probably think he doesn't hold me very high on his list.

    Now if he were asked the question, he'd say "no" it wouldn't be a big deal.. but I know different. I'd never forget his birthday.

    Yes it would be a big deal, even more so for my partner then me. I remember he got mad at me when we were first together that I took him to a restaurant that we had been to before for his birthday. He wanted something new and special.

    I made it clear to my better half that if he was to ever mention my birthday again, I'd cut his head off.

    Well, at the very least I would say it's NOT a particularly good sign. But some people are just scattered and their mind doesn't click to something like a birthday or other special date until it's past. My brother once forgot my Mom's birthday -- not good.

    I think birthdays are a bigger deal than silly things like Valentine's Day.

    Eh, if he were a genuinely forgetful or absentminded guy, it'd be okay. But if it were part of a larger pattern of self-centeredness, then I'd be pissed.

    Cut him!!! JUST kidding!

    Even if it's not important to you, a simple acknowledgment of the day never hurt anyone! I make a HUGE deal about bdays, mine as well as others, so it's a BIG deal for me.

    It would make me sad.

    But I have to admit, I could not keep his birthday straight for years. I always wanted to think it was 12/4, when it's really 12/3.

    I thought about this a little more and think that if your BF continues to forget things that are important to you that would be a problem.

    I have had a BF that would remember EVERYTHING and would make a big celebration out of everything. He was really sweet and it felt good for him to give me so much attention. The opposite is a BF that just likes you around but kinda treats you like a fixture like a table lamp or something.

    My last BF had it easy 'cause we have the same birth date! oh well. For me though, I just mainly use special days as an excuse to have a dinner or get together with friends, but don't really care about the days themselves.

    I don't think I'd be mad - more hurt than angry. I also know that he would feel pretty wretched once he realized the day had passed.

    Once I tried to pretend that I'd not remembered his - saving his present for the evening ~~ but it didn't work. He knows me too well.
