So I clicked on "see friensdhip' for some of my Facebook friends and I seriously have wished some friends a happy birthday on their birthday for the past nine years, and they have never once wished me a happy birthday on mine? Or commented on a post, or anything for that matter. MOst of these were real life friends from college or a neighbor etc.

Hmmm........ do you keep track????

Should I stop  wishing them a happy birthday?????

I don’t sweat it. I wish people a happy birthday to be kind, not because I expect one back.

It’s nice when it’s reciprocated. It I’ve accidentally missed bdays on Facebook. It happens.

Maybe you have your birthday set to private so they don't get the notification?

But you know, although an old “friend” born in October ignored my September birthday, I dropped the pettiness and wished her a HB. She didn’t bother to thank me though

I rarely wish people happy birthday on Facebook. I'm not a fan of the attention on my birthday so I just ignore birthdays altogether.

The world is too electronic when you can keep track of who remembered your birthday. they may just not be big Facebook users. Maybe they just don't wish people happy birthday unless they see them in person. everyone is different.

Don't wish them a happy birthday so that they will owe you a happy birthday back. Wish them a happy birthday if it brings you a small piece of joy to do so. Accept the birthday wishes you get with joy. Try to infuse your life with joy.
