Happy Nothing

Today, it’s my birthday. My boyfriend didn’t get me a present, or do anything special for me, because, “The rent’s paid, you have a fridge full of groceries… What more do you want?” Later on, he asked me why did I, “look so sad?” FML

It sounds like he pays for all the rent, utilities and food. If so, what more do you want? If you're splitting the expenses, cake.

Yeah, this won't last long. I left mine of 5 years because, in response to asking him to take me on a date, he said I should be thankful that he kept around my preferred liquor in the house. As if I couldn't do that on my own. Well! Now I take myself on dates and I definitely don't gaslight or marginalize my needs.

He doesn't deserve the title of Boyfriend.

Dump his ass and go find someone that appreciate you & makes you feel loved. Don’t settle

Wait until you're married for awhile. My wife's birthday present to me was letting me not have to get a birthday present for her. Christmas is so much easier now too.

Does his family celebrate birthdays? My ex’s family made a big deal about them and mine didn’t. Communicate with him and tell him how you feel.
