Why Are Men So Bad At Rememberign Dates? Well, this question is one of the great mysteries of the world. I suggest that we turn this question around and ask instead, ‘How can a woman memorize not just important dates but even the exact time that important events took place, while a man cannot keep tabs?’ Some of my male friends do not even remember their own birthdays!

A woman will remember events from the day you first met as well as the time too. She will remember the date you had your first romantic date,  the place, the date you first held hands, the date you proposed, the date you had your wedding, all these are at the tip of her fingertips and she treasures these memories very much. Each of these details are well engraved in her memory.

The other day someone wished me a Happy Birthday two weeks before my exact birth date. I appreciate that at least it was before and it means I am well thought of.😉 I have been asking my male friends when my birthday is or how old I am and yes you guessed right. 90% cannot remember but that is okay because I know that some of them cannot remember their own birthdays and I am often the one reminding them.

Just help me understand what happens to men and important dates? I think reminders were invented for you so now, thanks to technology, she can no longer get mad at you for forgetting her birthday or anniversary. So please remember to start a new year by inputting all the important dates and thank me later. Or better still, remind yourself if possible.  To get a male perspective on this, please read Mitch’s views HERE
