Don't tell him his mistake,he's doing nice stuff for you for absolutely no reason,enjoy it
:( It was a simple slip of the mind. At least he still did something really nice and sweet for you! :)
Wow, no need to say she's bitching. Whether or not he was trying to be nice isn't the point, it's the fact that he mixed up his current GF with his ex GF - never good no matter which way you look at it. If the FML was "Today, my girlfriend told me that I mixed up her and my ex GFs birthdays when I spent £100 on her last week. Her REAL birthday is a month. Guess I'm going to have to do it again. FML" a hell of a lot of people would be complaining that OP is a greedy bitch for not telling him.
My ex and my fiancé's birthdays are 1 year and 1 day apart. Just my luck! But hey, sorry about your luck OP. Initially I'd be upset too, but I'm sure he doesn't feel any better about the situation! At least he didn't mix up your anniversary! Look at it this way, it may be some other girls birthday, but he genuinely thought it was yours and was thinking about how to make YOU happy. Obviously his ex didn't even cross his mind or else he would have scratched his plans and wouldn't have gone all out for you. This is just a funny story to tell the grandchildren. ;)
Shut up and enjoy it. Next week, tell him about his error and you'll get double dinners, double flowers, etc. this year. Sounds like a plan, doesn't it?
i never thought possible that dr.marnish can do miracles, like restoring broken relationship! At first everything felt dreamy and unbelievable, I was scared a little cos I heard read and heard lots of stories of fake spell casters,scams and i never really believed in magic but I played along with a little hope and and faith and after everything, the love spell worked like a magic This love spells casted by [email protected] com made my man who broke my heart 4 months ago to come back to me, this is unbelievable, Only 3 days after the love spell was casted, my lover said that he wants us to come back together. to my surprise, he came back the next morning he was all on me kissing and rubbing me telling me how much he missed me and how much he loves me , that he wants me back. i was happy and i gladly took him back, thanks to dr.marnish for helping me to bring my lover back Jewels Allegro from USA
I set reminders on my online calendar for stuff like this and have them repeat every year -- but sometimes I'm too vague. I could see something like "Plan romantic birthday dinner!" popping up and me not realizing it was still set for the ex's birthday. Regardless, his heart was in the right place, even if his date-association wasn't. I'd certainly point out the error (I'm guessing the OP may have already done so, as she knows it was his ex's birthday and not just him somehow getting the date wrong), and yeah, he'll probably come through on her actual birthday, too... and maybe even in just a few days, as well, by way of apology.
I could ask my boyfriend, brother and dad when my bday is. Only my boyfriend would remember. That's just how guys are; they usually have trouble with dates- which is why women always remember because we have a steel trap for those things... And mistakes you made that we can hold against you ;)
#38, I don't want to bust your chops because you are not the only one, but it's remarkable how people can make stereotypical generalizations about men and they get away with it. Can you imagine the reaction if you said that black people can't remember dates? I am excellent with birthdays and anniversaries, so your sexist remark about my gender doesn't hold water. I don't expect anyone to rush to my aid, though.
#63, I'm a guy and terrible with dates. It's generally true that men get dates confused. She wasn't saying all men are bad with dates and I'm not either, but many men are. I forget my own birthday all the time. Now quit being so damn sensitive, put on your big girl panties, and STFU.
Perdix, I'm willing to rush to your aid! It's not fair to zero in on males in particular. From my experience, it's not uncommon to mix up/forget people's birthdays. Same goes with phone numbers. Speaking of forgetting birthdays, tomorrow's my birthday guys, I expect you all to remember! Hehe
#63 just because you are one of the few men out there that have excellent retention for dates, doesn't mean that facts and stats on men not remembering dates is sexist. Saying one gender has better retention for one thing over the other isn't sexist. Saying men are statistically better at math while women usually languages isn't sexist. Its fact. We aren't saying every single man out there is bad with this, just the general male population has a harder time retaining dates then the female population.
Boys rarely remember things like that! Just enjoy it anyways and appreciate the gesture. One day your birthday will forever be burned into his memory.
