    Feeling upset because husband rolled his ayes and didn’t want the birthday gift I was getting him. The gift was a nice night out to dinner, followed by a night at a nice hotel. He didn’t really want anything for his bday, so I thought this would be nice. He really hurt my feelings, and doesn’t see that he did anything wring.

    Mood : Hurt

      I would talk to your husband about how you feel @kidzo3, he really should appreciate that you arranged to have a nice dinner and hotel booked for his birthday, it is the thought and effort that truly counts on a special occasion like a birthday, explain to him how hurt you are and that you just want to do something lovely for him, hope everything works out, inbox me anytime if you want to chat or vent, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • Thanks. I did talk to him, several times, he doesn’t get it. He didn’t want a ”real” gift, so I thought this would be nice.. It feels like he doesn’t want to spend time with me, and I told him so. He just thinks I’m crazy.

    • I’m sorry to hear that, @kidzo3. Despite he’s already tollen you what he thinks, try to explain him again. He might have done it without even noticing (f.e. he didn’t want anything at all, and his response to you ginving him a present anyway its rejecting it). Your feelings are valid, and he needs to know that he hurt them and that he has to respect them.
