My guy is crazy busy so I don't really expect him to remember. I do drop hints/bluntly remind him of things that are important to me so I don't get my feelings hurt. As he says, sometimes he needs a "bread pan" to the forehead.
I don't really need to drop hints, I'm normally so excited about stuff coming up I talk about it for weeks ahead of time anyway. If he can't remember Christmas day, our anniversary is New Year's Day, and my birthday is 2 weeks after that, then he has problems lol.
Mine remembers really well. I don't ever drop hints, though we will discuss which exact day it is, so that we both have it fresh in our minds. Our anniversary is today, and everyday for the past week my man has been reminding me of the countdown! 7 days left! 6 days left! And so on. (Also, we were up late last night, so at midnight he says "it's technically already our anniversary!") Smart man here too!
he has never forgotten my birthday, but there have been a couple of years where I have gotten super excited about my birthday because of a big birthday present I have gotten, like concert tickets, so I will do a countdown. And then he has never forgotten our anniversay. But its pretty easy to remember: 9-8-07 (he totally loves that)
Never ever! He always remembers. He'll start planning for my B-day surprise or anniversary stuff a month or 2 ahead! It's very, very nice to not have to worry about having to remind him. I think I'd just feel like oh, well he don't care so I just won't remind him. Lol. I have a hard time asking people to do things for me so I'm really glad he chooses to on his own. Usually I'm the one saying "Oh, you really don't have to do anything special for me. I swear!" Of course I wouldnt be angry if he didn't go all out, but it's wonderful to feel so loved and cared about. He doesn't care much about his B-day, but I do. I always do something for him. I like to do something for my B-day always too, but as long as I'm having a get together with him, the kids and my fam that's usually the best b-day for me, then of course getting to do something special alone. My family have always been big on celebrating things like B-days. We just celebrated my brother's last week and my sisters was yesterday and we were supposed to go out to eat and then the kids ended up with HFMD! DISASTER.
Anyways, I do always get off subject. Sorry. Lol Point is, he never forgets. Thank God.
*I* am that person who needs the hints dropped. I really do think I have some disconnect in my brain when it comes to dates and numbers in general. Even when I write things down on my calendar, I still forget.
