My boyfriend and I have been dating for a month, he lives in a different city (long distance sucks) so we text and call all the time. I forgot about our "one month anniversary" and it upset him, I apologised and we planned to watch a movie together whilst facetiming. He was being vague about the timing so when I told him I wasn't free for most of the evening that day he just got even more annoyed. I offered to make up for it or try and get out of the plans already made but he's still acting as if I've done something inexcusable and is being moody.
Am I being a bad girlfriend or is he overreacting? What should I do?

one month anniversary? seriously? I say this to girls but this time its to the guy... clingy much? i don't care how much he likes you but this... this is a red flag...6anniversaries start at at least 3 months.. the standard is 6 months but some desperados do the 3 month one. if someone wants to do a one month anniversary... you better watch out. Clingy.1

Sounds to me like he's taking the relationship way more seriously than he should at this point; and that's not a "sweet" thing, it's definitely a red flag for attachment issues. It's only been a month. It's probably cause for concern that you two aren't on the same page about your expectations for relationship milestones. I think your reaction is perfectly normal. His reaction just reminds me of shitty high school relationships when love is overbearing.1
