I'm 23 years old and out of the 4 guys I've been in relationships with, I've only had special things done for me twice...all by my first boyfriend who I dated on & off for 3 years. I just don't understand it. Once I'm their "girlfriend" they all start slacking and stop saying sweet things to me or even talking to me. None of them ever even gave me a gift or took me out or anything for my birthday! I know this may sound kind of spoiled of me to think they should spend money on me, but it's not even that.. Even if they just made something or even just said happy birthday. I've never even gotten that and I do not get it. I always see my friends getting gifts or special activities planned for them on holidays and sometimes just because, and I can't help but wonder what I'm doing wrong to never have a guy that will do that for me. I always cook meals and plan special things for the guys I date and it's never reciprocated. The guy I'm dating now (we've been together 7 months) is really good to me and takes me out to eat and to the movies a lot, but I'm wondering if he will do anything special for my birthday in 2 months.. Is it stupid that I want to feel special so badly? Am I making a big deal out of nothing?

No it's not stupid. You have every right to want to feel wanted esepcially on your birthday. Sure guys slack after you go out with them but they should hav enough common sense not to get complacent and not wish you Happy Birthday.0
