Ugh, I’m an idiot.
So it was Mona’s birthday recently. We have plans to celebrate tomorrow, secret plans to her (though I’m sure she knows what they are.)
I spoke to her the evening before her birthday and made sure to tell her happy birthday. On her birthday, I texted her several times with fun memes or just random “happy birthday” stuff.
But I didn’t call.
As we texted our good nights I realized I should have called her and mentioned something but she was simultaneously letting me have it. She was dumbfounded and ultimately hurt that the man she loved and supposedly loved her back didn’t reach out to call her on her birthday.
This one is clear as day. My fault. Maybe it was because with all of the texting it felt like we spoke, or the fact that we spoke the day before like I had already spoken to her. Maybe subconsciously it was an eff you you her since we’ve been fighting more than normal recently.
Who knows? But its Relationship 101 stuff: call your girlfriend on her birthday.
Ugh, I’m a dope.
We eventually got on the phone and talked it through. Didn’t really arrive to a place where she was ok with it but we did out due diligence.
I’m sure this’ll be put in The List for a long time.
