So another year has gone by, I'm another year older today. Relatives are all out of state, kids are grown. My daughter moved down south, and my son gets out of work at midnight. I'll get home at 10pm tonight to my dog, and pour myself a glass of Jack on ice and call it a day.

Two days after Christmas the GF sent me a dear john text telling me it wasn't working out. Right after I spent a lot of cash on her and her kid so the holiday would be nice for them. (sorry no pics of GF as I deleted everything I had in a fit of rage. I don't think I have ever been that pissed in my life)

It's not all bad though. I immediately started a new Christmas fund, and this December, I won't be doing that again. This year I will buy myself a new 1911 and let Arfcom pick it out. I have a safe full of toys, a loading room in my basement with two Dillons, and a range 2 miles from the house. I have things to be happy about.

So when the time comes, and you are spending that day by yourself, just remember you're in good company.

You are never alone my friend...

Enjoy your times
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 12:10:52 PM EST
Nope, I host an ATF style guys weekend every year. We shoot guns and Tannerite, smoke cigars, ride ATV's and drink in the evening.
I am thinking about not doing it next year because I will be 50, but I probably still will.

OP, sorry to hear about your circumstances. Hope next year is better.
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 12:12:03 PM EST
I spend mine alone.
Don't even mention it.
Everyday is my birthday.

I do but I am an introvert, I moved 1400miles to avoid people I know so it don't bother me. I don't even observe it, mine is the 21st, I'll be at the range Saturday just like any other.

HAPPY SEIZURE BIRTHDAY!!!

"When I'm alone I prefer to be by myself"

In the past I was sometimes by myself, but I have not been alone or lonely. If you feel that way, go out and do something. A few hours out with the unwashed and you'll be happy to be by yourself!
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 12:39:17 PM EST
I've been alone and forgot my birthday.
it doesn't matter to me.

Happy Birfday OP.

I drink alone, yeah
With nobody else
You know when I drink alone
I prefer to be by myself...

I spend my burfdays alone because I prefer it that way. Usually go to a movie, or sometimes for a hike and some bunny blasting.

Happy Birthday, OP !

this year I will be, it is Saturday and I am hazardous to be around still, It saddens my boys they can't spend it with me, but I would rather they miss mine than Imiss any of theirs
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 12:49:12 PM EST
Don't feel bad bro....my birthday is saturday and I will spend it working....2nd shift....."wife" doesn't give a shit, one kid in Japan, the other....well, let's just say he is trying to "find" himself....parents 3 hours away...sister is a FSA dirtbag. And birthdays were always a big thing in our family. We have 4 birthdays in 3 days..my son's and my mothers is today, sisters is tomorrow and mine saturday. So, I will just have my Birthday beer, in the garage, by myself when I get home, Damn my life sucks...LOL
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 12:55:31 PM EST
My birthday is two weeks from Christmas. Growing up, parents never had the funds to buy me anything since it was so close to the holidays.

Not making a big deal out of the day I was born has been something that's stuck with me. I'm going to do my best to change that for my kids.

However, I feel like all sentiments now are just to make up for what I didn't have all those years. A steak and a beer thank you.

Yeah I'm spending it second shift too and then I go home to an empty house, but at least I have the bottle of Jack at home, and all the people of Arfcom here

I went out and bought myself a birthday cake on year . white cake with Eat Me in red . I have spent many alone . Happy Birthday OP !!
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 1:17:50 PM EST
In the last 10 years, I've spent my birthday with someone else twice.

It's just a day to me.

Link Posted: 6/19/2014 1:19:25 PM EST
what about those of us that chose to spend our birthdays alone? i hate the idea that you need to celebrate your birthday, if anything you should be thanking your mother for the pain and suffering she went through to bring you into this world, not worried about what people are going to get you. it's just another day to me
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 1:20:39 PM EST
Happy birthday.

You're here, not alone.
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 1:24:52 PM EST
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 1:43:45 PM EST
I've done it before.

Sometimes its the best way, and there are always worse ways to spend a birthday.

Happy Birthday!

Birfy Hapday!!

I've lived alone for 17 years. I make it to my family home for big holidays but pretty much keep to myself all other times.

I usually forget about my birthday. It's not a big deal to me anymore.

Don't think I ever remember being lonely.

In fact I FUCKIN LOVE IT!

Link Posted: 6/19/2014 2:13:50 PM EST
Define "alone"?
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 2:20:54 PM EST
Well Happy Birthday sir.

I've got a few years on me and not that many left.

I made up my mind that I was going to enjoy the remaining years. If I have to do it by myself..........then so be it.

just another day to me. Sometimes I'm at work, sometimes I'm at home, sometimes I'm on the road.
Link Posted: 6/19/2014 3:24:41 PM EST
