yesterday morning we woke up and were rushing around to get ready for work, so I don't blame him for forgetting it was my birthday. he has so much on his mind in the morning. but as we said our goodbyes he said "have a great day today" and I said "oh I will, its my birthday". I was kind of a brat about it I realize now, I was just upset at the thought that he had no idea it was my birthday. he knew it was his mind was just somewhere else in the morning. it was an honest mistake and I feel bad about being a brat to him about it. so then I got in my car and drove to work and he texted me saying happy birthday. I told him I would have appreciated a phone call rather than a text. you know maybe like "im sorry it was an honest mistake I didn't mean to forget, happy birthday I hope you have a great day". but instead I just got a text message and then made me even more upset. then he told me to chill when I said "thanks for remembering, I would have preferred a phone call". so then after work I was expecting maybe like some flowers or something just to show that he's sorry and he cares, but instead he tells me he's going to go to the gym. I was like "are you serious, you can't take one day off from the gym?" and he didn't like that very much. we've been together for almost three years, he knows when my birthday is but yesterday I felt like he just didn't even really care. he didn't even get me a card, just presents (but a card is more important to me). he started a new job working long hours and he is stressed and under pressure from the new job, so sometimes I feel bad and I feel like I'm asking too much or overreacting, but I really can't help but feel like he just didn't care yesterday. do you think he just had other things on his mind (like work, etc) or does he really not care? he never makes a big deal about his birthday, but I always do. I spend the day with him, shower him with love and gifts and I just make sure he knows how special he is to me. I didn't get that feeling at all yesterday on my birthday. he actually got mad at me for making him feel bad that he didn't realize it was my birthday. I know he's under so much stress at work but that isn't an excuse to take it out on me. am I overreacting/being a princess?
