He doesn't get it and it's so frustrating! **edit**
Thank you ladies. I didn't think I was going to get these awesome replies. I will make myself a cake. I'll have my boys help me and I'm going to rethink our relationship. I'll keep you guys updated. Tonight I'll be talking to him when he gets home from work.
My birthday is on monday. The 25th of November. My entire life all o can remember is getting only ONE cake for my birthday. ONE. From my grandpa and I was around 13. That's the only time I remember.
I asked my bf what we were going to do and he said nothing besides Going to see the Hunger Games movie. I asked if that was it he said yes. I was upset and left it alone.
so while we're talking about his next paycheck and where it's going he brought up the movie and we added the price for it into our budget. I then changed my mind and said I didn't want to go and I wanted a cake instead.
He got mad and sad why do I want a cake. I told him it's my birthday and they do cakes for birthdays. He says why am I making a big Damn deal about a cake. I didn't say anything and I start crying.
He turns to me and says you're really crying over a Damn cake.
It's not about that cake I said!
It's the fact that i feel like no one ever cared about me growing up. The fact that i only remember one Damn time I've ever gotten a cake. I want to feel like someone at least cares.
I don't know how to explain it. I'm upset because he just doesn't understand and I feel like I'm sounding crazy because of it.
Sorry I just needed to vent..
