No. I'm boring. It is very sad for me.

my birthdays as an adult have been pretty bad. i always say i dont expect anything, but its hard not to, if you have friends around.. you of course hope for them all to be there with you and have a cake and a good time. its never the case anymore tho. so i hate birthdays..

I'm indifferent to it. It can be super fun, but so can a regular night out.

I'm pretty indifferent to it. If I don't tell people about it noone will really remember that it is my birthday until FB tells them. I usually try to get a few friends together to go out to dinner, but that's about it.

My birthdays have always been happy events, but next month I'm turning 23 and I'm starting to feel old.

Not much different than an ordinary day.

I feel like other people make a bigger deal out of it than I care. "OMG You don't have parties????"

Other - I don't care that much. At this point, only birthdays ending in 0 and maybe 5 are worth doing anything for, beyond a "Happy Birthday" text or phone call. I'll be 33 in the spring. Big deal; it doesn't change anything except what I write on forms that ask how old I am. Now, there had better be a party when I turn 40.

My birthday has always been overshadowed by two major holidays (Christmas and New Year's). I used to be bitter about it, but now I don't care and treat it like any other day.

Indifferent. I do not like being the centre of attention or receiving gifts but I appreciate that others want it to be special for me.

No, I don't like my birthday. But it's not because I'm boring and it's because my ex-boyfriend broke up with me on my birthday. It's been years and while I'm over him, I'm not over that feeling. And when my birthday comes, it's just not a happy day.

My birthday aways ends up to be kinda disappointing.

I love celebrating my birthday because it's an excuse to get my closest friends together! I don't care either way about the gifts.

I like getting presents, but I don't have a lot of friends, so there's no big birthday things. I'm pretty low-key anyway. This year, I'm excited about my birthday because Thanksgiving comes two days later.

I always have a bit of anticipation built up even though I don't have any reason to. So I bum myself out for no reason knowing it's never going to get any better, unless I miraculously make a few friends and find myself a S/O. Family doesn't really do much so it just becomes another day that I'm reminded of how much I fail at life.

I like the excuse to go out to dinner at a place of my choosing and having my parents' pay for it, but otherwise, I don't care much.

My birthday is Valentines Day, so being single and having never had a boyfriend for Valentines Day (even though I KNOW I don't need to have a boyfriend in order to be happy/just because it's Valentines Day) kind of sucks. It tends to get rubbed in a little more every year when I see my parents (who are divorced but have a fiance or SO) or my sister or my friends get to spend time with someone they love/enjoy being with. I try not to let it get to me too much, though. I don't mind that my birthday is on Valentine's Day for the most part.

Mine is on NYE, which isn't a very thrilling day for me. Plus, everyone's always so involved in NYE that I don't get a lot of birthday-specific attention.
