Even if you're not exclusive, you probably don't want them to get hurt in a bike crash, right?

I genuinely loved certain family traditions like the annual gathering of as many friends as possible to take over a local Tex-Mex restaurant for Christmas Eve lunch — before we all got older and had responsibilities that made it impossible to keep it going.

Instead, celebrate his birthday like you would for a close friend. Ask your guy how he plans to celebrate his upcoming birthday before you plan anything.
