Today, was my girlfriend's birthday. I planned it to perfection: we went shopping, bowling, had lunch in a nice Italian restaurant, watched a French comedy, walked by the river. She also got many presents. Tonight, I was exhausted but happy for her... until she told me her birthday is tomorrow. FML
frenchboyfriend tells us more :
The next day (on her actual birthday), I wished her a happy birthday again and luckily I still had a present for her (I had planned on giving her the nicest present right before bed the previous night but when she told me her birthday was the next day, I kept it for her real birthday!). :-)

It's the old trick with the International Date Line when you are dating internationally -- the people near the line try to get double presents from the rubes from Europe, Africa and the Americas.

Which means it's not too big an FML for OP. She probably thought it was really sweet and doesn't care that he got the date wrong.

OP- Should have played it off like you knew. For my (now ex)girlfriend's birthday, I planned it a week before(a whole romantic weekend) so that she could spend her birthday with other people as well.

But I think OP's girlfriend didn't mind. She would be a huge bitch if she made a big deal about it.
