I am getting some wrong signals hearing this. It doesn't sound right Have you tried calling him up and checking it out. Or in your bones do you get a feeling that its all over and done. Whatever happens just be sure your friends on mylot will always be there to see you through it.

hi mansha! thanks for the precaution thing..the thing is im used to hear from him probably twice a month if he's out of town for projects but i can't feel women's instinct that he has another agenda though..i just hope he could get in touch soon...but i sent him an email saying im totally frustrated...thanks for the concern..

This is the first year that my b/f actually remembered my birthday. We have been together for 6 years.I have never made a big deal about it. If I was you and it bothered me that much then I would bring the subject up to him. He might have gotten you something and its just not gootn there yet.

first of all, happy birthday! as you have pointed out, you both have different timezones. as philippines is ahead by 11 or 12 hours (i'm not really sure), then as your day is just ending, his day is just beginning. if you didn't hear from him within the day of his timezone, then he really forgot about it. yes, i agree it's very frustrating... but it's up to you how you choose your attitude on your special day. you could still choose to be happy regardless of whatever... or you choose to be sad and frustrated, just because. it's up to you. once again, happy birthday! :)
