  • think of it like this, LOL, your facebook friends aren't actually remembering... facebook sends out notification if a friend's birthday is coming up.

  • Maybe they will call you on that day? Or maybe since you're grown people just don't think it's as important considering there is no party. I don't expect people other then my DH and maybe my parents to do anything for me. If others say something that is thoughtful and kind but not expected.

  • So? Mine's never acknowledged in the days/week before, just ON my birthday. Chill out. IMO you're overreacting.

  • I understand it is important to others but I just plan what I want to do for my birthday. I love to go to restaurants, but don't do it often, so that's what I usually do for my birthday. Dh does at least remember that it's coming up. Really, once I passed 29 I wasn't advertising my birthday ;o)
