My boyfriend (M30) and I (F33) celebrate our 4-year anniversary this month. As the official day falls on a weekday, we decided that we would do something on the weekend.

As we both work from home and we don’t live together, I wanted to surprise him on the morning of the official date and bring him a little breakfast, a plant (he loves plants) and a box of chocolate.

I arrived at his place at around 9, knocked on the door and he took a little while to open so I assumed he was still asleep. He opened the door with a frown on his face, so I immediately apologized for waking him up and told him I just brought a few gifts for him for our 4-year anniversary. He just said “okay”, visibly very upset and walked away to his bedroom, letting me stand here with my gifts in hand.

I was kind of shocked that he reacted this way, so I put the things I bought him on the kitchen table and was about to leave, but then I heard some noise in his bedroom and he got back with pants on. I thought he was going to hug me or something but he proceeded to feed his cat and go to the bathroom, while I was waiting by the door.

I was sad of his reaction and started to cry because I was only expecting a little joy from him. He exhaled and told me “what?”, I responded that I was sad that he seemed annoyed by my presence and that I hoped that it would at least make him a little happy that I brought him something for our anniversary. He told me sarcastically that he was sorry that he didn’t meet my expectations and that I can’t expect him to be happy to see me because I woke him up and he didn’t sleep well.

To be honest, I was not expecting a big celebration from him or even a gift from him. All I wanted was a hug, a kiss, a thank you (the bare minimum) which didn’t happen. We didn’t even get to have a nice breakfast together, because I was in such a bad mood after that, so I left his place.

So Am I A Jerk  for waking him up to surprise him?
