I hate my birthday. When I was a kid I liked it, but now I just feel like... what am I even celebrating? And why am I forcing myself to make plans when I can't be bothered to make plans... I'm not a plan maker.

I removed my birthday from Facebook a few years ago, so most of my current group of friends (who I know from my old work) don't know about when it's my birthday. And now I don't get the faceless facebook birthday wishes. I'm much happier this way

Not particularly. I'm past the age where getting older is exciting and now it starts to become depressing

I dont care either way. But if it gives me an excuse to hang out with buddies and get drunk then sweet.


Honestly I think a lot of people that hate birthdays probably just hate being reminded that they are getting older. Fortunately you can ignore dates but you cant ignore father time.


That or they had shitty birthdays.

I've never had a birthday celebrated except when I was four. Even that was pretty surprising.

So no, it's just a normal day.

I'm always ambivalent. On one hand, I get depressed on my birthday and try not making a big deal out of it. On the other, I kind of like the fact that so many people care enough to at least wish me a happy birthday (in a sincere way). All in all, I'm very self-conscious about my age because I'm older than most of my friends and haven't really achieved any of my own projects yet.

This year I had a gig in Moncton with my band (i.e. far away from everyone else I know) and they all started singing Happy Birthday in the middle of our set. I thought it was nice of them if, not creative, because they hadn't said anything during the whole day until that point.

Nah that's why I don't tell everyone here or other forums it's my bday. Doesn't matter to me at all. I don't get anything out of it lol.

Even on Facebook I have post to wall messages "only me" setting, so if you really care about my bday you'll see the notification to send me a direct message. You know who your real friends are when you do this.

I stopped caring about bdays after I turned 21. That's pretty much the last age where I felt like I made it. Downward spiral ... Nowadays I only spend my bday with close friends and family, fuk everyone else for real lol

I don't know, I'm sorta 50/50 about it.

Like, on the one hand I don't like being the centre of attention or people making a fuss of me, so if anything gets organised or there's some kind of party in my honour, I feel a bit awkward.

But then on the other hand, I tell myself I should stop being so square and just enjoy myself.

I'm 26 in a couple of weeks, so I'm getting to that age now too where I'm slowly starting to dread 'officially' being another year older. Not looking forward to 30. Then when I'm 40 I'll look back and laugh at how silly I was. Then at 50 and so on and so forth.

Not really.

If it's better than my 21st(as in, I'm not in hospital), then it counts as a good 'un these days.
#13
Part of the reason I hate it is because of the pressure to do something.

And I'm all like, leave me alone. I just want to sit in my pants and scratch my balls.

Meh I am 47 and still don't mind celebrating I was born on march 17th so there is always a shamrock cake for me and If I have a mind to I can hit a couple of Irish pubs here in town and they will give me some free green beer and make a proper big deal out of it!

Nope, dislike it immensely.

Recently turned 30 and did jack shit to celebrate it. If anything my mother should get the celebration - she had to squirt me out her cunt after all.

I've got no reason not to. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sure, aging can suck, but I see that from more of a collective prospective rather than letting it be associated to one particular day. No different from any other, in short.

Celebrating is nbd either. Always celebrate with the family, but if we didn't I wouldn't mind too much. As cheesy as it sounds, just being remembered is good enough for me.

Buy her a large pink bin bag and a card with the words "remember the day I did this to you?"
#21
yeah sure
everyone in my family knows i don't do shit so my birthdays are just "hey here's a couple gifts and a pizza, gonna fuck off and leave you alone now" to which i respond ""

it's a nice quiet day
especially good if there's a decent basketball game on tv

The general consensus in here is that almost everyone hates or is not bothered by their birthdays.

Now, does that have something to do with the fact we all hang out on this guitar forum, with our emo, punk rock and death metal?
#23
I don't listen to emo, punk, or metal though

But probably, yes

I'm indifferent. Over the last few years I've sort of become a bit more insecure and don't like a big fuss being made over me but at the same time people taking time to wish me well gives me warm fuzzies. Problem is my birthday is January 3rd, just about when everyone's skint and partied out from Christmas and New Year so i can't be bothered celebrating. I'm sort of half planning a party for my 25th but I'm sort of wondering what's the point.

A bacon butty brought to me in the morning, a meal out in the evening and a blowjob off the missus afterwards will do me just fine.

I thought we were talking about the actual date, in which case I was going to say hell yeah I do because mine's 11/11.

I don't dislike my birthday really, it's nice to hang out with friends or give me a reason to throw a party. I do dislike the fact I'm getting older though. This year I turn 30, not really looking forward to that.

Real talk tho

I'm pretty ambivalent about my birthday, but the people close to me are not. I honestly forget about it until people remind me that it's soon. I always tell people I don't want them making a thing out of it 'cause I'd be okay with just going home. My birthday becomes more about what other people want. This time around was different- it was the only time I didn't do anything. I had to cancel plans with people or people weren't available.

I'm completely indifferent to birthdays

It's just an excuse to go to the pub, as if I need one

Not such a big deal now, but soon enough it will be cause for celebration again!

Ah the 70th birthday bash is always a great one


Jewish guy goes into a Catholic confessional, tells the priest "Father, I have sinned. I had a threesome with two 23 year old women last night."

Priest says "Ok, but you're jewish, why are you telling me?"

Guy says "I'm 87 years old, I'm telling everybody!!"
