Subject: The ex-bf's birthday So my 3.5yr serious relationship (that i was lead to believe was going to end in marriage) just ended. More details on that here: http://forum.purseblog.com/general-discussion/upset-another-unhappy-event-to-add-to-list-107597.html As you can imagine I'm not having warm fuzzy feelings about him right now. The ex-bf's birthday is literally around the corner and hours away. Initially, I thought about possibly sending a very short email just saying happy birthday but given that i'm angry and pissed with him, i'm not planning on sending him any birthday email or anything. I also do not want to have him think i'm using this as an excuse to converse or that i'm dying to get back together. Option 1: Send a short email that would just say "Just sending a short email to wish you Happy Birthday" Option 2: Do nothing Option 3: Any other suggestions Is it fine if i just ignore that it's his birthday like i'm planning to do? What is the generally accepted/ok thing to do in this situation? Thanks!
