    Yikes

    If I was you I'd give up trying to make your birthday special and instead just ring a couple of mates up on the day and go out for a drink.

    Good luck with next years though.

    my birthday is april 25th.

    On april 24th 2009, a good friend died because his spleen had ruptured and his condition was misdiagnosed by the EMTs.

    On april 25th 2009, my grandmother who basically raised me died.

    Well, you know what? In spite of the birthday mishaps, (each of us had our share of them) we'd like to give your's a happier spin, so...



    HAPPY BIRTHDAY PURE_MOTION!!


    There is a young guy named pure_motion,
    Who lives pretty close to the ocean,
    His birthday's were mean,
    On his friends he did lean,
    And for him they made happy commotion.



    Here's some happy commotion!

    MAN I dread my birthday! one year I invited a lot of people to my house and my mom bought so much stuff and spent a lot of money and the only person that was there was a friend that spent the night; so we went to the movies after I realized that no one was coming, and after we took him home I was really upset and I cried and my mom said not to worry about it and not to let the kids at school know that it bothered me. So monday comes around and I told me friend that after we dropped him off there were like 20 people there waiting for me and that it was a lot of fun. but yeah just one of many shitty b-days I actually try to keep my b-day on the DL as possible because I just don't want something to go wrong.

    You should 1) Go out and have a very merry Un Birthday. 2) Since your profile says you can't have extra partners- neither should your bf. I'd dropkick him to the curb.

    Sorry about the gratuitous bad luck.

    Next one go away and celebrate!


    Many more to come!

    Well first, Happy Birthday!

    To begin with, its your day and it should be yours to celebrate the way you want... just don't expect others to share the same view. My suggestion is that you have a small party and only invite those you know well and are really friends. What is it about huge birthdays? I remember a friend of mine who spent $5,000 on a buffet at his home in August, 2008.

    The bottom line is... do it yourself and in a meaningful way. Sorry to hear about your mother, however. That would have been pretty rough.

    I'm sorry to hear your birthdays have sucked.

    I'm going to Toronto for mine to see the Tut exhibit. I don't want any kind of party, but it's unavoidable with my family so we'll do cake and stuff on Easter.

    Mine was last Wednesday, and it sucked. The 20 people I invited out after work? Well, one of my housemates came for a round but had to go back to work (which was much appreciated), and two of my colleagues came because they'd each dumped their boyfriends in the previous fortnight & didn't want to go home. I went home at 8, because I figured at least my cat would be happy to see me.

    Take II, Saturday night: the first person who had accepted the invitation and said "Oh definitely, can't wait, I haven't seen you since Hallowe'en!" didn't show because he made plans with the "new boyfriend" he'd met one week earlier. One of my best friends was on holiday in Mexico on my birthday and told me he was looking forward to going out on Saturday night---but then cancelled on me "because I've got a birthday party to go to." It wasn't until that night that I realised he wasn't kidding: he'd forgot it was my birthday and had gone to his roommate's friend's birthday party instead.

    Next year is a milestone birthday and it happens to fall the Thursday before Mardi Gras. I'm planning a trip to New Orleans, a city I've always wanted to go to, and have invited about a dozen friends from both sides of the Atlantic. Even if I end up going by myself, I will have a good time.

    Sorry to hear about your bad birthday. You really need to reevaluate your relationship with your BF. He should have been the one person that would turn it all around for you, instead of being a jerk-ass and having someone else over on your birthday. Had it been me, I would have broken up with him on the phone and basically given myself a great birthday present.....freedom!

    It sounds like you deserve far better. I also think when others are having health scares during what should be a festive holiday, is a good reminder of what is really important. Yes my birthdays suck too, but any year that someone I love doesn't die or isn't in the hospital is a good year and consequently a good birthday too.

    Next year, have a new boyfriend and stay in on your birthday.

    This is good advice---I have to say that despite the Hell on Earth my ex has put me through over the past 18 months, on my birthday last week is the first time in a long time that I missed him.

    Oooh, except maybe my birthday in Vegas 2 yrs ago when he left me in our suite by myself while he gambled.

    That is a very serious run of shitty luck pure_motion. Not sure why your boyfriend wasn't AT your birthday party, but I'm sure there's more to it I don't know.

    I hope it doesn't bode ill for my upcoming birthday party on Saturday. It's okay if a handful of people who have confirmed (but not yet reconfirmed) don't show, but if my closest friends in the city don't make it, I'll be pretty pissed off.

    And I don't bother with trying to be coy or subtle. I make it very clear it's my birthday, it's a party and I'll be doing a lot of preparation to make it fun for all of us. People seem to understand that this means I expect a certain degree of respectful treatment in return - including timely cancellations, etc. And my circle of friends and acquaintances is a bit older than yours - perhaps age makes a difference. Not sure, though.
