Today is my birthday, Im feel blessed for another year. I have a family member who birthday is the same as today also. We both have FB pages and pretty much the same friends on FB. Trust, it doesn't bother me that much, but today I wondered how come a lot of the same people who wished her a HBD didn't wish me one on FB or by phone? For those who have done that what is the reasoning? Just wondering....

Note: I know these people fairly well a lot of them or family or I grew up around. I don't have any drama with anyone, I am more of a homebody and not as out there or aggressive as my FM. If you could see our pages you would see the obvious difference. But I feel that shouldn't matter, right?

  • Maybe they didn't realize you were on FB enough to get the message.

    But.... Happy Birthday!

  • I had the same thing happen to me. A few people told me it was immature to feel upset, but it did hurt my feelings....i can't deny how i feel regardless how immature people thought it was.

    It's early though, i bet by tomorrow morning you will have tons of birthday wishes on your facebook page.

  • You may want to make sure that your birthdate is made available to your friends. I must confess that I only remember to wish FB friends Happy Birthday when the system reminds me it is their birthday. Also, I've noticed that my FB sometimes lists only one birthday and tells me to click for more. Is your friend's name before yours in the alphabet? Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
