Anything along the lines of a book or CD or DVD is fine -- it's a nice gesture, but not laden with baggage i. When my boyfriend and I had just started dating, his birthday occurred about 3 weeks into the relationship, so I got him a DVD of one of his favorite movies that he'd mentioned he'd had on VHS for a million years and needed to replace.

Yeah, I'd like a book. Pick something he's shown interest in but that's not too obscure, so he doesn't think you spent weeks obsessing and tracking down some rare tome. It's a nice simple gift that I think is more mature than a mixtape or CD. A mixtape is an awesome idea. It'll show something of you, but it's not intimate or over-the-top. When my boyfriend and I started dating it was pretty clear we both liked music As my choices are generally very eclectic and make little sense to anyone who would pick up my iPod Pinetop Perkins More exposure to 'new' things for the both of us.
I bought him an iPod about 4 months in, for his birthday. The books came later.

I had to convince him that reading for pleasure is also a good thing! I think any of your choices are thoughtful, and show that you're thinking about him without going totally overboard.
If you know what his tastes are, a CD or a book would be great. If you can't think of anything, nearly everyone loves food and it's never considered an overly intimate gift.

Treat him to a delicious ice cream soda or whatever he's mentioned he likes eating. Whatever you get him, he should definitely send you an e-card.

Buy him a drink. MIXA posted by mingshan at I would just buy him dinner. Or you could make him dinner. Something consumable in the sense that you use it, and it's gone would be a good choice too. I don't have any particular ideas though I don't think I like that idea though. But then I'm just not a cologne guy.
Well that's all I got. And non-consumable items are fine. It was just an idea.

It's probably much less awkward having a movie around from that girl you dated once for a bit than from your ex who you were almost engaged to before things turned sour. That's actually an absurdly impractical rule, as a little arithmetic will soon reveal.
I had been dating only 2 weeks at the time october , but I got her the new Kanye cd and a card and then took her to dinner. After that, we went to a bowling alley with a bunch of her friends. This is going to sound super cheesy, but my girlfriend's now fiance birthday was 2 weeks after we began dating. I bugged her about what she wanted for her birthday and she said she wanted a pony. You've probably already guessed that I got her one of those plastic Barbie ponies. Will that be extra weird if I tell her my birthday is tomorrow but deliberately don't invite her? My situation is slightly complicated by the "dating two girls" situation, since I'm more apprehensive to bring just one to my birthday when I haven't introduced either one to any of my friends yet, but I feel like this situation isn't really specific to dating multiple people.
How far into a relationship do you think it's fair to be offended that you weren't invited to a birthday? Am I being weird or an asshole here? At the very least, I feel like I definitely shouldn't invite them both, but at the moment I'm not inclined to invite either Don't invite either girl unless you're ready to get serious. Don't tell either of them it's your birthday if you're not inviting them. Don't put your friends in the awkward situation of introducing them to someone you aren't serious about, particularly if you plan on continuing to date both girls. You're doing nothing wrong. I reserve birthdays for good friends and family and definitely not people that I've just recently met and started dating.
Chances are they would probably feel a little weird being invited to a birthday party? I wouldn't really worry about either of them knowing it's your birthday. You don't even have to mention it until you actually get closer to one or both of them. So just don't even tell either of them I had a birthday until it's passed? I feel like if I hang out with one of them tonight I'm almost obligated to share that I'm turning a year older at midnight.
Or maybe I should just find something else to do tonight You are overthinking it. Just don't tell both. Then they both might want to hang out with you on your bday.
When Casual Dating Isn't So Casual
I was frank about the fact that I was throwing a big party and dodged around the fact that they weren't invited. None of them lasted, but it didn't seem to matter at the time. Most minimally socialized people get that showing up as the date to somebody's party especially when you don't know their friends is a Big Step; most emotionally mature people will get that your reluctance to immediately jump to that Big Step need not be a big deal. If it comes up, you could say that your friends have something planned for you.
This allows you to a avoid inviting her and b avoid discussing what's actually happening. A few years ago my bi friend invited both the guy and girl she was dating to her birthday I think they knew about each other at a strip club. She didn't leave the party with either of them, but did leave with a dancer's phone number. They're probably not going to care either way, or at least they shouldn't. It's too early for them to be worrying about you birthday. They will know you had a birthday when they check out your okc profile and you are a year older.
