Have An Opinion?
Nah. My birthday is coming up 12 days from now, and I know who is going to remember my birthday. Closest family, my best friend and one friend of my dad who for some reason has never missed it, so he'll stop by and have a beer or two with my dad. I removed my or set my birth date to private on all social media, and I now know who really cares. But I don't. I believe birthdays are totally unnecesarry and couldn't care less if anyone remembered it. Of course I aprecciate it if someone does, but I won't look at them differently or stop being friends with them if they don't.
Mines coming up next month but I doubt I'll get anything from anyone again. It's been years since I got a birthday gift. On my 40th almost 2 years ago I didn't even get so much as a single card from anyone and the of reason I got any last year was because I yelled at everyone for having the worst and shittiest attitude about it from the year before. Last year when Demi had her birthday I named a star after her and this past year I bought her a meteorite with a special message attached to it and every year I get her a birthday card because I know how shitty and lousy it is not to have one and I want to make sure she never has to experience that awful feeling ever.But this year I doubt or rather I highly doubt I'll get anything from anyone next month for mine :(
I actually prefer that people forget about it. It's fun when you're kids but now it's meaning isn't so important to me. But maybe that's just because my family doesn't take them so seriously anymore. Stopped getting birthdays gifts when I was a teen so that probably had some impact on why I feel this way. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I couldn't care less if anyone remembered or not we are all so fixated on our daily life's that we tend to forget stuff like that sometimes but if I want to celebrate my birthday I grab my friends and do so if not then I just don't that is my opinion at least
It's not a big deal for anyone else but if my parents forgot, it would kinda hurt. The thing that makes me sad is if your friend sees on social media for example that it's my birthday but they completely ignore it and make you feel like they don't care.
If people don't remember it means they are busy. If they are busy enough to forget your birthday, you are not on top of priority list that day or moment. When you are not in their priority list, you should not put them in priority list and spoil your birthday. Hope it makes sense
lol im the only person who has forgotten my birthday. i had a field trip out of town and my birthday was the day we return. it was a 10 hour trip and we left late so i only got home around 10:30 pm when everyone started singing Happy Birthday i was a bit confused and ask why they were singing my mom was like because your 12 today. i was like oh.
Yes. Though I went through about 5 or 6 birthdays in a row where nobody cared about it. I had one where my "friends" all agreed to come out, they forgot it was my birthday, only two turned up, and they both left after an hour. Now, I pretend I don't have a birthday.
Yeah. Mostly because I make it a point to call my close friends and family in theirs. I generally feel that if you really care someone then you remember them on birthday's, holidays etc
Well i love cake. So yah my birthday wish every year is forvsome one to bring me a birthday cake other wise i have to make one. But maybe 5 out of ten times i forget its my birthday not unless i have to write done the date or i hear the date or read it on my phone for me not that big of a deal
I appreciate it when people do remember but I really don’t care anymore. Basically if someone doesn’t wish me a happy birthday on my birthday then I don’t wish them a happy birthday on their birthday either and vice versa.
Lol. I used to believe in zodiac signs so I remembered the birthdays of all my surroundings and they thought that it’s because I was obsessed with them, while I just studied their zodiac signs for fun
After the first 30, it's just another day!! Some think it is a big deal, and I let them have their fun. No big deal to me, any more. . .
I don't tell people my birthdate and I don't celebrate it outside of immediate family so very few would know when my birth date is.
Definetly not. I'd love it if everyone would forget. Just don't see the point of celebrating birthdays past the age of 18.
I don't care about it but my birthday is remembered by most people I know because for some, the day is too special.
I don't care but, it would make me sad. But then, if they don't remember it means I'm nobody to them.
I mean it's nice if people remember because it shows they care enough to remember or pretend to remember. I think I'd be okay as long as one person remembers lol.
It would be a big deal to me, because it shows that they listen and that they care. I'd be a little hurt if they didn't remember because to me that shows that they don't really care enough to remember.
After 21, I stopped caring about my birthday. All the major thresholds were passed, so it doesn't really matter anymore. From here on out it's just getting older, more broken, and closer to death. I don't even really keep track of my age anymore.
Not really. Mine just went by a short while ago. Only like two people remembered. And they were my parents. So ya I was cool with just that.Since I don’t have a spouse currently. And my kids are to young to know what it is.
I wish people would not make a big deal of my birthday. I hate even being here so a birthday is not much of a celebration to me.
Don't care. I don't like celebrating special days anyway. As long as they remember who I am as a person, it's all good.
I say i dont but i doMy best friend of 6 years literally NEVER texts me to tell me happy birthday, and its one of the small things that builds up with her that pisses me off
Not much, although it does hurt. My birthday never really felt special to me, so it makes me very happy whenever someone tries to make it even somewhat special. Not many people do though.
Im hiding my birthday from social media everytime, there are still people that will remember but i hate when people are around me and wishing me happy birthday, they are always making big deal out of it.
No big deal at all. I mean, my parents and my brother wish me anyway and that's all I really need.
I often forget myself. More critical is that I forget others' birthdays.
The older I get the less they matter. Girls always seem to make a big deal about their birthdays, turn them into a whole two week thing.
I used to think I didn’t really care but I remember one birthday (for some reason) I had a load of people wish me a happy birthday, and it just felt so good, I’m not sure exactly why but it made me realise it is a really nice thing
yeah but i'd like it to not be a big deal, i wanna learn to be ok with being alone
After my 21st bday it kind of became just another day. Some people I know will refuse to work on that day, and still have to throw a party every year. I look at it as once I became an adult it was just lile any other day.
Tbh id really appreciate it but i dont even care much about my own birthday, i’d be a bit bummed but its not like id make it a big deal
I don't careProbably because i don't have any friends Most of my family remembers
Birthday wishes are nice from family and close friends but I don't really expect anything big
I stopped caring long ago, but people remember it for me.
Not really... after a time it actually gets annoying when people make a big deal of it.
Nope I don’t really careBecause I don’t remember others either
Care, not so much. I do appreciate it if people remember but I don't expect them to.
I don't really care, I forget people's birthdays, I don't expect them to remember mine.
Not a big deal. It just means you're getting closer to death had rather keep it to myself. Getting older sucks.
Nope, I actually hope that they forget. That way, I can get away with not buying a cake for everyone.
Nbd, as a kid it was, but as an adult over time you lose interest. However it does feel nice as a way of spending time with friends or family when people do remember.
I'd be upset if someone close forgot it. I like birthdays but he's still your own little day to be treated and it would feel like that's not important to them.
Im now 45 as of Thursday gone, i want low key, like a drink on that day, but thats it. I dont want to embrace old age, i want to fight it all the way!!!/!
I dont really care either. Its just a quite normal day for me. And If they dont remember its godd because I'll probably also not remember their birthday xD
Almost everyone in the world could even forget I was ever born, but every birthday I hope and pray just one person remembers. If just that one person does, that day is joyful.To be honnest, I know it's illogical, but, yeah. I'm not perfect.
Yes I do care. I like having attention when it’s necessary
I just care about my fam and girl remember it, others? Don't give a f
I never cared much about birthday parties or anything of the sort. It doesn't matter much to me.
No one remembers my birthday I don't mind, I dislike attention
Yes yes YES YES YES!!! No, no, no, Eat cake for breakfast have a birthday everyday! Only lite candles on the actual day.
Ehh sort of, people always act like you should remember theirs, but its fine to not remember yours. I dont really care about birthdays anyhow
When it makes me feel older.. not really a big deal.But it makes me feel blessed everytime when people I care about remember by birthday.
Sometimes I wish people would just forget about my birthday like they always do
I wish to forget mine every year. It’s everyone else that keeps reminding me. Bastards. 😜😝
Now a day's people are busy with their personal life & stuff so if someone forgot than it's ok
Hasn't been a big deal for some time, and been a shitty time for the past 4 years,
I don't expect people to. But if they do, I appreciate it.
If they forget I don't consider them as caring people.
