The first time you meet a guy for a birthday party or even for a date, the best thing you can do is ask him if he likes the idea of having a happy birthday party. You might find out that he is only joking around with you and that it isn't serious or if he will go through with it all, but still, asking if he will have a birthday party on your birthday may be your best chance to make your birthday special.
You may not know it, but there are some men who feel more comfortable having a birthday party than there are women. This is because men tend to give birth to children, so they are more interested in planning the day and spending it as well as they possibly can, while women are more concerned about taking care of the kids.
If your male friend says that he would be willing to get together with you on your birthday, then you should probably consider having one too. When you have a male friend over, you don't have to pretend like you don't want to have a male friend over because you want to have a female friend over. It will be your male friend's idea of a good time anyway.
You can usually tell whether a guy really wants to have a happy birthday party by the way that he goes around with his shirt off when he gets ready to go to bed. A guy who just wants to have fun, who is not planning on spending his birthday doing anything other than going to work, is usually not going to have a great idea about planning a good birthday party.
Another sign that your male friend really does want to have a birthday party is if he will not even think about asking you to be his guest at the event. In fact, you might end up finding out that he is the one setting up the party for you and then he goes and sits at home drinking and watching television with his wife or girlfriend, which would be a bit much to expect.
If you want to make sure that your birthday is an unforgettable experience, then you may want to invite a few male friends to come along. They will make sure that there is lots of food, that the games are played properly, and that the whole event goes off without a hitch.
