OP, It was a kind gesture gone wrong, but nothing to get upset over. At least now you know a little something else about her. Next year, maybe a homemade dinner and a movie on the couch? :)

Actually, I do. When you're in the midst of a panic attack, you don't always have the ability to process what's going on around you. Which means your mind likely tunes stuff out. Trust me, I've been through panic attacks.

Probably jealous nobody has ever gone through that much trouble for you.
His heart was in the right place. It was a nice thing to do. He couldn't have known she would have an anxiety attack from all the attention.

How does he Not know she has anxiety issues? People prone to panic attacks usually know. My s.o. Is well aware of my limits with my own issues and if I cross them it is because I am choosing to take the step out of my comfort zone.

Ever thought maybe she doesn't always have that issue? Or maybe she hasn't told him yet because she's embarrassed? Or thought he had few enough people that she would be ok with it?


Since they're a couple, it's likely he knows about her anxiety issues. Therefore, it was quite clearly NOT a 'smooth move' to have a crowd of people (that she didn't know) sing her happy birthday. You can't see the sarcasm there?

31, "smooth move" has to be one of the most used sarcastic phrases I've ever heard. It's hard not to get that one. Here, however, it just wasn't all that witty, hence the multitude of down votes.

Well, the literal meaning of the comment is the opposite of the intended meaning this making it sarcastic. You can conceptualize it as irony if it helps**.

**this post explains how the comment was sarcastic. Any perception of humour in said comment is entirely subjective and not necessarily the view of this commenter.

Seriously though, I have really severe social anxiety and would have done exactly the same thing in OP's girl's position. And because my boyfriend KNOWS me, he knows never to do anything like that to me. This definitely could have been avoided, unless OP just started dating this girl. Then it's just an accident and OP learned never to do something like that to her again.

if you have never experienced/seen anxiety you might not really understand what it is like, maybe he knew he was taking a chance but didn't know how bad it would turn out if she got an attack?
I suffers with anxiety but I do think it was a sweet thing he did and feels sorry for both of them

I know, I read it differently in my head... one of those comments where you get embarrased and hope that nobody remembers that you were the one who commented that dumb shit a while ago

#61: No, you don't need to delete your account. There's a learning curve here on FML, and even regular popular members get downvoted every once in a while. You shouldn't give up, especially after only two days. You'll get the hang of it eventually. Chin up! :)

You are joking right? Most girls I've met get pissed when they aren't getting the attention of everyone aroubd them. Abd before people start calling my sexist or whatever I said MOST not all and that I'm only speaking of ones I've met.

  Shadowbay  |  18

Mmm I'd say 3 out of 5 of the girls I know would love the attention... I however would hate it. It all depends on the person and i feel like op should've known she wouldn't like the attention but who knows how long they've been dating? She probably still loved the attempt though
