Are they really your friends if they forget your birthday?

Anonymous
i spent fifty dollars each on my two best friends birthdays this year. And they're both like 3 economic statuses above me. Then my birthday rolls around. And the girl friend doesn't even wish me a happy birthday. And the guy does -after i mention it's my birthday- but that's it. I put a lot of thought into their gifts and money i didn't really have to spare. And neither of them reciprocated. Is it juvenile for me to feel hurt by this and not really want to be friends with them anymore? I'm always putting extra effort into both of them that isn't hardly reciprocated. The girl specifically. She'll blow me off for plans every time and if i message her it'll be a full couple days till she responds. I mentioned it once to her that it bothered me she wasn't reliable and she called me needy. I haven't had a lot of friends so it's hard to tell what's normal treatment.
