... or do other men feel this way?
Me and the fiance, who is my three-year-old daughter's father, were watching TV last night, and he asks me when Mother's Day is. So I tell him, and jokingly say "Why, you gonna plan something special?" He says "Well, I've got to get my mom a gift". Well, that changed the mood completely; I just about burst into tears, and instantly remembered Mother's Day last year: he didn't so much as pick me a flower, much less get me a card or anything else, because I'm "not his mother". WTF??? I was getting cards from girlfriends who don't even have children, and he can't be bothered to do one nice thing for me, the mother of his daughter, because I'm "not his mother"???
Please tell me I'm not engaged to the biggest jerk on the planet, and that there really are other men out there who are this heartless and this is just a fact of life in dealing with the less sensitive male sex ...

My ex was this way. He never gave a damn about mothers day. He called it a "hallmark" holiday, though he still got something for his mom because if he didn't he said it would hurt HER feelings. Well what about mine??? HELLO!!!!!! My now fiance is NOT the father of my daughter & always gets me flowers for mothers day, because he says I'm a wonderful mother. So, i guess yeah....some guys are that way, but not all of them. I would write him a note & tell him why you think you should be appreciated more on mothers day. don't get in an argument, just let him know how you feel, he may change once he understand how you feel about it. he may not know.
