Dear Dish-It: My BFFs Forgot My Bday!

Dear Dish-it,


All of my best friends forgot my birthday, should I be worried?


Help95


Dear Help95,


Hmm...that's a tough one. Did your friends know that it was your birthday? Sometimes we think everyone should remember our special days, but the fact is we all need a reminder once in a while. If your friends are busy and you didn't say anything, like "Hey, guys, my birthday is coming up next week. I'd love to have you all over for a party at my house on Saturday to celebrate!" then you can't really blame them for not remembering. I know it seems like it should be easy for BFFs to remember each other's birthdays, but just cause your besties forgot doesn't mean they don't like you anymore...


Be a Birthday Ambassador

If it's REALLY important to you that your friends remember your birthday each and every year, then it's going to be up to you to make that message LOUD and CLEAR! How do you do that? By handing out calendars to your besties that have your birthday circled in red pen? NO! Just the opposite...you have to take the lead in making sure that each and every one of your BFFs' birthdays are as special as can be, so that when your big day rolls around your friends will think, "Oh, she was so nice to us on OUR birthdays, let's do everything we can to make HER day extra special!" Of course, you shouldn't do nice things for people just because you want something in return. You'll see that if you treat other people, like your best friends, the way you want to be treated, they'll likely turn around and do exactly that!


Princess Party Planner

Why do you need your friends to remember you on your birthday anyway? YOU should be YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND and throw yourself the biggest party ever on your special day! Don't be afraid to go all out and (with your mom and dad's help, of course) plan a bash fit for a queen! After all, your birthday only rolls around once a year - might as well spoil yourself (and invite all your friends along for the ride)!

Okay, since I'm a girl and have helped many of my guy friends with this (even though I think they r too young for this but meh whatever), I can give you some advice.  1) Don't be mean or nice. You have to be yourself. Don't be nasty to her to get her to like you (it won't work), nor should you be Mr Nice Guy. Don't be there to carry her bag for her just yet.  2) If you want her attention, be creative. Writing a song is a good idea, but don't dedicate it to her. Just pretend you're aiming it at the general female population of your class. You can tell her that it's for her later, when she's into you. 3) Find out what she likes. Does she play instruments? Does she do sports? Does she fangirl over stuff? Does she play video games? Find out and DISCREETLY get her to know that you like it too, if you do of course. This is what worked for one of my friends: 1) Stay low until the perfect moment. If she falls over, come over and help her up, smile at her and blow her away with your charms, and then proceed to say hi and ask for her name as if you don't know her. It is creepy when a random guy knows your name and says it to you.... it just is idk. Walk away without looking back. This will make her curious for this stranger who helped her up. Do this for whatever situation. BUT JUST ONCE. DO NOT REPEAT. 2) If this happens again (she falls over etc), be sure to be really obvious that you're not going to help her up. Walk by without sparing a single glance. She will be reminded of you and wonder why didn't you help her. This is good - you want her to think of you. 3) Do something sweet for her. For example, if she likes a particular drink or cheap snack, buy it for her and walk up to her. Give it to her, but say something like "Hey _________! Here you go. I accidentally bought the wrong flavour and didn't want to throw it away. Don't worry - I didn't open it. Do you want it?" She should say yes, and ask for your name to say thank you. That's when you tell her. 4) Start to wave to her in the hallways and say hi sometimes. Don't do this too much though. Sometimes, if she waves first, ignore her. This should make her want your attention more. 5) Do something sweet again (like the song), but aim it not directly towards her (like I already said before - aim it towards girls in general). If you want some more, tell me! I hope this helped, but it might not - depends on what kind of girl she is.
