You aren’t that serious yet, so preferring to spend a birthday with friends is totally normal. Possible, your date will mention a party or get-together to which you’ll be invited.
If you go, treat it as you would the birthday of a friend you very much like: bring a card, buy them drinks, etc.
It’s nice to put a smile on someone else’s face, isn’t it?Buy breakfast the next morning, make sure he or she isn’t too hungover, mingle with friends, etc. As much as I want that lucky girl to be the perfect girl for him, I also want him to be prepared for her. Your father & I will make sure you always have money for your dates. It’s everything in my heart, magically put perfectly into words. If that just isn’t possible then ask over the phone. None of this “let’s hang out at my place & watch a movie” nonsense. It doesn’t have to be fancy or elaborate or immensely creative. Sara, thank you for sharing this sweet advice with us. Never, I mean , ask a girl on a date through a text, instant message, or email. Sometimes the best dates are simple, like a picnic in the park.
