Hello mylotters, Just got curious if how many of you out there celebrate special occasion like birthday alone? Today is my fiance's birthday and he don't have any plan really on celebrating it outside as he is just alone and not much money. He can go out with friends though but he just choose to relax at home. Well i know most of the people in other countries are already get used to the feeling as most of them are very independent. Anyway, as for me its kinda lonely if we celebrate birthday alone here in our country because most of the time we celebrate it with family as we do have a very close family ties but this time i celebrate my fiance's birthday alone and so as him there. I just bought a hazel nut mousse cake as a present. Thanks to the internet we able to see each other even how miles we are far from each other. Well anyway the important thing is that he is on good health. That's what i am thankful really. How about you? Have you tried celebrating special occasion alone? If so, how do you feel? Can you share your experience?

How many of us? Hey, I can't tell about others but I can only tell about me because I hardly know guys here personally. Nah, i don't even celebrate my b'day at all. Alone and not being alone is a different thing. If I don't celebrate it then it deos't matter that if I have someone with me on that day or not. Last time I celebrated it was some 15 years ago, when i was 13 years old.

I have never celebrated my birthday alone. It is a very special occasion for me - as taught by my parents. They would go as far as visit me to the province where I work just to celebrate my birthday with me. If they couldn't because it's a weekday, they would go the very next weekend - and during my birthday, I try to treat my friends so that they could celebrate with me :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Hello girl, i don't have that kind of experience celebrating my birthday alone...i'm living with my parents and siblings and every time i'm celebrating my birthday, they always there to greet me on my birthday..it's really nice to have your family around on the day of your birthday...in your case, you have to be there always for him, eventhough, your too far from each other but still you do communicate..just make him feel that you are always there for him, i know how much you love him girl..i'm praying for the both of you, that you will have a good life ahead and will have a happy family someday.. good luck and God Bless.. happy mylotting

i think i did celebrate my birthday alone once - when i was studying abroad.. no choice, then.. but after that i tried to 'celebrate' with my other countrymates.. i called them over to my place, made a simple dish to eat together.. my mom always made such fuss over our birthdays,so.. i am used to 'celebrating' it.. cannot stand being 'alone' on that special day..

The last birthday celebration I had was when I was 9 years old. Since then, I lost interest in celebrating birthday. I see no meaning in celebrating birthday. Regardless where and when I was born, I'm already in this earth, the past does not matter. What matters is the future. Knowing when I was born doesn't mean anything at all, except to remind myself that I'm getting older and nearer to retirement.

Before I met my husband, I often celebrated my birthday alone. I would take myself out somewhere nice, and just treat myself to omething special. I'd also celebrate with fmaily, but since they all live out of town, we'd often celebrate on days that were different from my birthday, because those were the only days that we could all get together.
