  • I would talk to him about it. Maybe there is a reason he doesn't like to celebrate holidays like that. Ex. he could have grown up JW and doesn't celebrate them for religious reasons, etc.
    The worse case senerio is that he's just they type of guy that is too selfish to want to go out of his way on a holiday. (I had one of those). But until you discuss this with him.. you won't know.
    Do you do something nice for them on the holidays? Sometimes a guy gets depressed because he wasn't shown enough love during the holidays. Remember as well.. that some guys don't like to spend money on holidays because they believe they are too commercial now adays. You can suggest some things to do for the holidays that are free while talking to him about this if that is the case. Like leaving a really sweet note for v-day telling you how he feels, and vise versa. If he knows it's not about the money he may participate too. Good luck.

  • unlucky? no! some guys are just insensitive like that. They dont realize how important those things are to women. My DH is considered insensitive.

  • I don't know. That seems to be a little insensitive to me. Have a long talk with him and let him know how it hurts you.
