I forgot my gf birthday, how do i find out?

So we’ve been dating almost half a year, and I know it’s terrible, but I totally forget when her birthday is. not even the month is coming to mind. She doesn’t have social media is very shy so she has very few friends, none of which I talk to. I sort of remember that it may have happened in the 6 months we were together but we weren’t very serious then so their was no celebration so I’m not even sure of that. We are really serious now and I feel like I asked like twice before a few months ago ....so asking directly is probably going to look really bad, rightfully so ..but hey,I’m sorry ,At least I wanna know so I can buy her something incredible, but how can I find it out ?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Ask her, then ask what her name is again.

  • Just ask. Not a big deal. Trying to scheme to find out would be.

    Most people are cool with honesty, and if she did hold it against you, then it would say more about her character than yours.

  • Ask her one last time, then make a note of it on a piece of paper or your phone so you can look at it and remember.

  • Oh gyod women act like cry babies if their stupid B/F of the week forgets their birthday.
    Asking her of course would be showing that he forgot.

    Anyways if you can sneak a peek at her ID card when she is in the bathroom then you will know.

    • Yeah great advice until she catches him rifling through her purse when she comes out of the bathroom.

      • Well obviously he isn't trying to get caught you dipshit.

        Let's be honest - women make a big crying deal of things much smaller than forgetting their stupid birthday.

        I dated some bitch a few years ago, worst relationship I ever had. anyways toward the end I wasn't talking to her and had not contacted her on her B-day (she was turning 42). I got this big ol long text about how i was living in the past, was ignoring her, and some insults about my transgender status.
        I replied with "Shit, you wasn't putting out".

  • Just apologize to her then ask what her birthday is and that you are really sorry you forgot what she told you. It sounds like it never came up in the past anyway.

  • The thing to do would be to just ask, it's really not that big of a deal if you've only been together 6 months. Unless it was my birthday on the day that you asked me and I'd already told you that, I wouldn't really care, but I'd be pleased that you asked because it would make me think that you were planning on doing something nice for me.

    If you really feel you can't ask you can: check her ID card, ask her for her star sign, or start talking about future birthday plans - e.g, would you like to go away for the weekend on your next birthday? And try and steer the conversation towards specifics of dates.

    She will probably realise what you're doing though
