A couple solutions: 1. Find a way to your girlfriend's house. 2. Invite your mom along. 3. Talk to your mom about how irrational she's being and hopefully find a way to peacefully continue your plans. Good luck, and happy birthday, OP!
You should've still went out with her. You're enabling your mother.
Maybe his mom wouldn't let him. Or maybe he would feel bad about taking sides. It's hard to pick between your mother and your girlfriend, regardless of who's being irrational. It would be better for him to stick up for his girlfriend because his mother is in the wrong, but you don't know what his mom might've said to him, so I feel like it's unfair to label him as an enabler. I think you would need to hear more from the OP to truly determine wether he's an enabler or not. The limited amount of characters on an FML can make it difficult to fully describe everything that happened.
Judging by the fact that he said he's spending his birthday in his room, it makes him sound like he's under 17, in which case I don't think he was allowed to leave the house. He may be spending his birthday in his room because he wanted to be alone after all that and not near his mom, but I also wondered if it was because he got grounded as well. Either way it sounds like he is too young to have been able to leave or to successfully stand up to his mom. Either way FYL op.
Welp, happy birthday, I suppose. I'm not your girlfriend, but I'm the next best thing
Seems like your mom was upset because she feels like your gf is keeping you away from her. She's probably used to spending your birthday with her. Sorry Op hope you can get it sorted out and go with both of them!
u should've invited ur gf home for dinner then went out with her later this way no one feels left on ur bd, Happy birthday OP
