It was our wedding anniversary today. We went out for a meal tonight, he wanted to get a takeaway or ignore the occasion
I took a great deal of trouble getting ready. AIbu to think he could have complemented me on my appearance just this once. Not a third world problem I know but I feel very dejected .

Happy anniversary OP. Sorry you were feeling ignored.

If it helps, my make up was fab today. I mean really brilliant, better than ive ever managed before. I waited and waited for someone to compliment me but no. So when i got home i asked DS if he thought my make-up was nice. His response? "Its just a face mum" hmm grin

Yanbu op

YANBU at all, I would be hurt too.

Can you talk to him about it? I mean, takeaway and no fuss could be nice if you're not big on anniversaries, but there needs to be agreement, and ignoring you isn't on.

Yanbu. Welcome to my world.

That made me laugh, WhyYou! If I say so myself, my hair and makeup did look bloody good last night fgrin

Is he one for normally complementing your appearance or noticing changes? If so then I think YANBU. But if he is anything like my DH he just wouldn't notice.

Happy Anniversary!

Please look up the difference between complEment and complIment. Puts a whole different perspective on your thread ...

YANBU. That can be one of the downsides of LTRs. He could've thrown you a bone, right?

By the way, it's 'complimented'. Complemented means something else. blush

Oops, x-posted.

yanbu, my 'd'p says im funny looking when i wear makeup and do my hair 😑 typical of him really though ! seeing as i rarely do my hair and makeup

Is there really any need to pick the OP up on her spelling?

twoopsie Tue 23-Dec-14 09:27:18

Yabvvu some people don't have a dh and can't afford makeup. ;)

Seriously though, ignore the fools going on about spelling. This would hurt me, but maybe he prefers you more natural? How was the sex?

Fudgeface123 Tue 23-Dec-14 09:30:05

Some people cannot resist belittling other people for their spelling can they?

OP I would have been a bit miffed too, does he normally compliment you?

diddl Tue 23-Dec-14 09:33:04

it would have been nice if he'd said something, but if he never usually does, why exoect different this time/

If I'm happy with the way I look, I don't really care what others think.

i've never complimented my husband on his appearance, come to think of it.

PunkrockerGirl Tue 23-Dec-14 11:12:33

I am suitably chastised regarding the spelling.

WhyYouGottaBeSoRude Tue 23-Dec-14 11:15:49

my hair and makeup did look bloody good last night

Well at least we appreciate our own awesomeness grin

What does complemented mean? blush

misskangaandroo2014 Tue 23-Dec-14 11:21:26

Complement is something that goes with something nicely (so wearing clothes to co-ordinate or think of foods, cheese and crackers or stawberries and cream).

Thanks misskangaroo.

bananaramadramallama Tue 23-Dec-14 14:35:47

It's not a spelling dig though, the opening post asked if 'just this once, husband could have worn an outfit which enhanced or 'went with' Punkrocker's' - completely different question!

Anyway, of course you're not unreasonable - tell him you were left wanting and insist that you both dress up for fish & chips tonight or something.

Happy anniversary and congrats on looking so fab last night!

I'm sure you looked lovely, OP, but as soon as I saw your thread title I thought of this.
