Anything spa is appreciated.

Massage.. facial.. manny/peddi for her and a friend? (not all, one should suffice)

You can do dinner later, just the 2 of you

Think experience.. Make a memory hf

Ok, then don't buy her anything, but make reservations to take her somewhere very special on that day.

So, you're not buying he a gift, but taking her out for the night as your gift to her. Make it a big special surprise.

Seriously and honestly... I'm so sorry.

Your marriage is in bad trouble.
You want to be drinking a beer with a friend instead of with your beloved?!

In my marriage, we forsake all others, we get ancy if we are apart, and if we were to do anything by ourselves like a night out with the guys or girls night out we would both be miserable without our best friend/spouce/lover with us.

We are a matched pair that can't be broken.

I feel sorry for you, that you do not know real love. :/
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45862982


Uhhh hate to break it to you but your relationship sounds like it's built a bit on fear and insecurity . . . and what a shame that you can't enjoy friends and you feel 'miserable' without the other one there at all times. Seriously doubt this will last the way you think it will.

Careful talking in absolutes when it comes to 'real love'.

Dated for 4 years, lived together for 3 and married for 26.
We didn't jump into marriage until we knew each other very very well.
We do everything together, camp, fish, hunt, shop and why would we want anyone else.
Most time with outsiders comes trouble.
We do have friends that we meet every week at a coffee bodega/hooka/wifi spot but they are a matched married set of people that have been married for over 30 years.

Lots of people just don't know what marriage really should be like. Some fight just to have makeup sex, some go on trips with other buddies so they can get all hot for their spouce when they do get back home.
There is a huge difference when you find the right person to "share" your life with and not just some spouce for support or for popping out kids with.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45862982


my husband and i rather do stuff with each other, so i can relate. not everyone is the same, some people need breaks and other energies in the mix, that's ok. i just feel lucky to have found my best friend. it's not better or worse than other relationships, it's just the dynamics that works for you best. everybody is different, and every relationship is unique. as long as people are happy and thriving, all is well. that's just my 2 cents.
 Quoting: eekers


I wish everyone could know what you and I experience in our relationships. I am happy you found your perfect mate!
It is rare really.

I was married for 10 years before my current great marriage and it just didn't work out, personality clash, as they needed to be the center of attention all the time and had to play to an ever changing audience. Bah. :)

Re: My wife told me not to get her anything for her Birthday.....
I always tell my husband that. I genuinely do not want a present.

What do I want?

A wonderful evening alone with him. Dinner somewhere wonderful, a nice day in the country -- a winery tour maybe? Bottom line is that I want a day of his undivided attention.

Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. You can feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. What is God? The Eternal One Life underneath all the forms of life. What is love? To feel the presence of that One Life deep within yourself and within all creatures. To be it. Therefore, all love is the love of God.

Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to die before you die - and find that there is no death.

Re: My wife told me not to get her anything for her Birthday.....
I don't get women...and I am one.

Crap, my birthday is this weekend. All I ask for is to be left alone so I can read a book, walk by myself, stare at the sky, meditate, and not be disturbed or distracted. That is the best gift I think....solitude and internal content.

Get her a little something.....whatever right, have it gift wrapped and buy an extra gift wrapped "empty" box. Sit her down and tell her you got her two gifts but she can only have one and the other one will be returned to the store, if she picks the empty one you'd better be dressed and be ready to run.

Re: My wife told me not to get her anything for her Birthday.....
Oh! You're damned if you do and double damned if you don't!

My suggestion? DO something special for her as a 'gift'

that's not 'getting' her anything but still letting her know you care

good luck!
 Quoting: Rev StarGazer


^^^THIS!!!

I know some women do the "don't get me anything" and when you don't they get pissed. I'm the kind of gal who says what I mean- none of that back and forth crap...bbbuuuttt...she might mean 'don't buy me any material thing'-i know, pretty confusing. I agree with Stargazer- DO something for her. On her birthday, say, "Hey, I know you said not to get you anything for your birthday, but I put together a picnic basket (filled w her favorite foods) and would love to take you out for a picnic lunch!" Or something along those lines--but definitely reiterate the fact that she said not to get her anything but you love her soo much that you did X,Y, or Z. Total brownie points if you 'rent' yourself out for the day and complete her honey-do list :)

Well, at least you remembered it is her birthday...

Do you have a singing voice? Stand outside the bedroom window at day break and sing the Happy Birthday Song! Have the kids join in.

Then present her with your collective heels & elbows jumping into the vehicle and giving her a "Birthday of Peace & Quiet".

Re: My wife told me not to get her anything for her Birthday.....
She doesn't mean that. She's saying it to be nice and she may even think she means it but, when there is no present, she'll get upset.

You can take her to a show or concert or casino or the zoo or a museum, something special you don't do ordinarily. If you have kids, don't do it on the day but present the tickets for a future day. Cause she'll want to have dinner and cake with the kids. So it's like she gets two special days.

Or, if she likes to shop, take her to the mall and let her buy anything she wants, anywhere.

A fit certificate to the movies and to a chain restaurant also works, as it's something to look forward to on another day.

But, no matter what she says, she wants something and if you do nothing she'll be hurt.
