Am I asking too much from my bf?

My boyfriend revealed to me today that he might take me to watch a movie at the cinema on my birthday. But I felt kinda disappointed.

Not only did he ruin the surprise 2 weeks before my birthday but his present wasn't even really something special in my opinion. Don't get me wrong I think it's really cute. But it's on the same level as what I've done for him during normal occasions.

I don't need something expensive or even a physical thing, but at least surprise me with something special. Could be something free too. I just feel like watching a movie will just be us sitting quiet for 2h.

I told him I'd rather not get anything at all than him telling me what he's planned. Then he told me he was giving me a box of chocolate or something (which again is just ruining the surprise).

I really don't want to sound like I'm expecting a lot, but it feels like my birthday is just a normal date. I buy him candy and chocolate and invite him out to dinner without it being his birthday. He even expects us to split the bill when he eats or drinks more than me. It just feels so unfair...

We've been together for 3 years. I guess I expect more than a date by now :/
