So this girl I've been pursuing has a birthday this week. I've already had sex with her and she initiates contact with me more than I do her, but I'm hesitant to wish her a happy birthday or even remember it, because I've been told it's extremely alpha to forget b-days/holidays/anniversaries.
Case in point - A FWB had a birthday a few months back. I had a legitimately busy weekend and almost didn't go to her party, but I made time and went anyway. I was an hour late, didn't kiss her when I walked in, and I didn't have a present. She chewed me out for all these things later on at the party. But surprise surprise, she later on told me that her birthday wish was that I'd be her boyfriend. I told her NO, and expected the worst. Within a few hours we were hooking up and she enjoyed every minute.
I know it's a kind gesture to wish a happy b-day, but if the FWB's party was any indication, it seems like it's best to forget/ignore it. Any thoughts on this? Has anyone experience better results one way or the other?
