Ok so we've been dating for a little over a month. When we first started talking I told him my birthday because we were both born in March and he asked the day. However this was a couple months ago and he forgets a lot of things, he's just forgetful. I don't wanna be like "hey my birthdays on Monday" because I don't actually expect a big to-do, but I mean, I want it to be acknowledged haha. So what do I say to sort of remind him? Without being annoying and just saying "hey Monday's my birthday btw". How do I bring it up?

I was wondering what have to do on monday? If your not busy would you like to come over and like celebrate my b day with me? and then if he's all like ah Sh*t I forgot its a way he can remember and then you can avoid the blow up if he forgot. Cause FYI guys can be just a sensitive as girls. (We deny it cause we want to be strong for you but saying hurtful stuff can actually really hurt us if we are actually trying to be as best of a boyfriend we can be.)2

In casual conversation with him you could mention your plans for the week and slip in "my parents are having a birthday dinner for me" or "my girlfriends are taking me out for my birthday" or "I'm not going to study on my birthday" I don't know your exact situation but just that there are ways of letting him know without actually TELLING him.1
