    Today I'm 32. I guess birthdays wouldn't be so bad if I felt like I had friends in real life that actually gave a crap, But as of now aside from my husband and our families I have had 2 people I have never met in real life wish me happy birthday and that is it. I wished a girl I use to work with happy birthday yesterday on facebook. Out of that group of girls I use to work with another one has a birthday today also. She has been wished happy birthday by 2 of the old coworkers and me. I guess it just sucks to realize that people that you thought you had a small connection with don't care a FLIP about you.

    I haven't had a best friend since I was in middle school. For whatever reason people just don't seem to click with me. It really sucks. My husband is the same way.

    I could also just be emotional as I am 26 weeks pregnant with my first.

    Thanks for letting me rant.

    Happy Birthday!!! I really do hope you have a wonderful birthday, and I understand being more emotional. I am expecting our third child right now. If you need someone to talk to you can always PM me. [​IMG]

    Pretty soon you won't even remember your birthday! For my last one, my mother called me up the day before and asked me where I wanted to go out to dinner. I was busy thinking about the boy scout meeting we were having that night, and the dr appt my younger son had the next day, etc. When I said that great but lets not go fancy, she said, "Don't you want to do something special?" I was thinking, what the heck is she talking about, it's the middle of the week? I said if she wants to do something nice then maybe the next week would be good. She was silent for a moment, and said, "You do know it's your birthday tomorrow, right?" I felt like a complete idiot.
  5. Happy Birthday. I will be 58 tomorrow, and I feel 28 in my head. No one remembers me either, really . . .but the office had a party for me yesterday morning (Real Estate) and i didn't come because i had to meet with a client!! They said they had a stripper and everything. [​IMG] No one has ever had a party for me since i became an adult. But, that's ok. I guess if that is the worst thing that can happen to us, then things aren't that bad, huh?

    Happy thoughts, happy thoughts for that baby bean!! Mama needs to have happy juice flowing!!

    Nah, what you need is an "Unhappy Birthday!" [​IMG]


    Okay, I kinda lied. I gave up on birthdays, my DH never does anything but say it. But he gives me a gift every day when he comes home safe and sound!

    TRUE friends are hard to come by...they really are. I'd rather have 1 true friend that I can confide in rather than 20 fake ones. Don't sweat it!! Once you have that baby you're gonna be like "friends? what friends? There's no time for that!" And you won't even care-you'll be too busy loving that baby.

    Happy Birthday! Mine's tomorrow, my big number 40. I would really rather everyone forget this one! lol

    I'm sorry that you are feeling down. It really does seem that as we get older, friends are harder to come by. Everyone is so busy in their own life and wrapped up in their own families. And, remember, your friends are getting older, too. Maybe they just forgot.

    Congrats on the little one.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Mine is tomorrow and I wish I was as young as you [​IMG]

    I have the same experience as you do with birthdays. BUT I've come to realize I also don't do anything to encourage people to really care that's it's my birthday. I don't celebrate or invite anyone or go out. It usually winds up being just another day around here and DH is off at work all day. OK, now you got me going with crappy birthday thoughts.... [​IMG]
