How do you feel when people forget your important anniversaries?

I don't really care.
Even my father can't remember my birthday. Doesn't bother me haha.

I don't have any important anniversaries that I expect other people to know. The only important anniversary dates in my life are the dates of the deaths of my loved ones, and those aren't dates that I go around telling people or expecting them to somehow know. The others, like my birthday, and other things like that, I don't care about.

I remind people, because I don't like to set them up for failure. I forget things all the time; it's not a huge deal if people forget things as well. So I make sure to mention it in passing. No one that's close to me really forgets birthdays but I don't think my boyfriend knows when we started dating. I don't really care though, I just like knowing it to know, we don't do anything special or anything.

As my birthday is the middle of a month with five other birthdays and at least three other special days I do not mind if people forget. but if people forget about my daughter's birthday that's another story for another thread.

My birthday isn't usually forgotten since it's on the 1st (of October to be specific) but since my PC Anniversary is around the middle of March I do have to remind people constantly about that.

Forgetting an important anniversary always makes me feel sad.

No prob because chances are I forgot too. I completely forgot my birthday last year until that evening when I got on Facebook and it had reminded a bunch of people who I never talk to.

Aww, it may not bother you but that would really bother me. :(

I don't care if my friends forget my birthdays because no one really memorizes anyone's birthdays anyway.

Usually I drop a subtle hint like "Got my Birthday cake ready for TOMORROW!" or something like that.

.... Note just to save confusion its not actually my Birthday tomorrow.

I think nothing of it; far as I'm concerned, I don't have a birthday. I do think it's a strange culture for mortal creatures to have, that would celebrate such things.

I'm not too bothered unless someone know's it's a special day for me and deliberately tries to ruin it or treats me wrongly on that day.
I'm a bit like toujours and I like to forewarn people beforehand. For stuff like monthly anniversaries or whatever, I don't care if others remember them as I forget them half the time, but saying "Oh hey, this happened on this day, that's great." Is sorta nice to recall.
I'm terrible with remembering saint-name days, though.. which my mom finds to be so important and I just guess I don't so it doesn't stick in my memory.
Anyways, I'm rambling now.

It doesn't bother me because I have forgotten many times before. In fact last week I forgot my best friend's birthday.

I don't even remember my birthday on the day until someone reminds me so I'd never fault anyone for forgetting it. And since I have trouble remembering specific dates that are important to me personally, I also have trouble remembering others' important dates. I try to keep birthdays of my closest friends and relatives in my calendar so I won't forget but I can be really wishy-washy with dates so I just hope people don't get offended when I don't remember a birthday here and there because I wouldn't judge them if the roles were reversed.

How do I feel when people forget them? I don't even think they're entitled to know them in the first place. XD; I know Birthdays show up on FB, so of course a few of my FB friends are gonna take three seconds to leave me a message, but I bet only three out of 80 actually knew the date on their own. We always (fandom friends, family etc) wish each other well on Holidays, too, but other than that I can't think of any other dates. /shrug

I don't really care anymore. A lot of people tell me happy birthday on my facebook anyway so at least I know more people are going to do it this year. It does make me feel pretty good, but I'm rarely on facebook nowadays. Plus I don't really tell people it's my birthday anyway; I told maybe 2-3 people last year about my birthday and a ton of other people found out from facebook.

Friends on FB? You are pretty naive, man =D
Anways, on topic.
I don't really care if my friends wish me happy birthday or not, I don't really feel anything special from that day anyways.
If they do, I thank them and that's all.
Beside b-day, I don't have important anniversaries.

I feel really sad when people close to me, whether they are on Facebook or not, forget my birthday. I had so few people wish me happy birthday on FB in 2011 compared to the year before, that I thought they were all only interested in their own drama (which was a factor in my permanently deactivating my FB account.)

I really don't care about birthdays and anniversaries. Only a few people even know when my birthday is so I'm pretty pleased when no one makes a big deal of it, but I bite my tongue when someone does make a big deal of it because even though it's my birthday I've got to acquiesce to their wishes.

March 7th, 2013, 9:54 AM
The only people I really feel obligated to remember important events like this are my family and maybe someone that I'm dating. Friends, not so much, as it wouldn't really expect them to have my birthday memorized or an anniversary of some sort.

March 7th, 2013, 12:00 PM
Who cares? Its not there job to remember when my birthday is, heck half the time when I wake up on my birthday I forget its my birthday until midway through the day. Okay maybe not really but you get the point. xD

I might be a little upset if people close to me forgot important days like my birthday, and if my mom or dad did I might be a little concerned because they never have before.

I would get upset if somebody who was important to me forgot my birthday or some date that was particularly important (though right now my birthday is the only one I can think of), because I always remember everybody's special dates. I guess it's a little unfair to think that way since I have an especially good memory for things like dates so to expect everybody to remember mine because I remember theirs might be a little unrealistic, but I'd hope at the very least my friends and family would remember my birthday.
