We were together for 3 years and then he dumped me because he got bored. He wanted to stay friends but I said no that I don't want to have any contact with him, that he can contact me only if he changes his mind about us. It's been 2 months. So it's my b-day and he texted me "Happy birthday :) " Do I reply or ignore?

Just because two people Break up doesn't mean they can't and don't Make up and that it's Good-bye forever, my love. And with an "EX" who still Marks an X in his own softie spot here, dear, there is usually motive in mind when it comes the time To-----Texted me "Happy birthday."
It's 'Been 2 months' and still counting, and with this special message he is sending your way on your day, he Obviously is Missing the Kissing and the history you both shared. However, it doesn't necessarily mean to that he wants to be these two birds again of a feather or hooked at the hip, but he could be letting you know that he does still want you in his life as a special friend and could be hoping... you change your mind.
You will never know unless you give this a reply with your own try. Be polite, civil, tell him "Thank you" and find out if perhaps there is more in store. You could find out that he hasn't had a change of heart but with a bit of thinking... maybe you will have a change of heart and it could lead to starting out slow this time, nursing and nurturing a friendship that could eventually turn better than ever into a Rolling Relationship.
On another note, if you find out that he wants to be friends and you still are sticking to your guns, then tell him "Thank you but I haven't changed my mind and call me when you have something different in mind."
Good luck. xx0
