    My fiancé says there are only 3 dates he needs to remember – the date we started dating, my birthday and our wedding date (when it happens) and he does remember these…but I do like to remind him a lot so maybe that’s why!

    I like to remember other dates…such as the date we first met and our engagement date. He says it shouldn’t matter if he remembers those or not, which I said was fine…just as long as when I say “happy whatever” he has to get excited too!

    Mine’s not. We’re going into our 6th anniversary and he’s never come close to forgetting. In fact, sometimes he actually reminds me! Lol.

    Mine tries not too, so he has a series of alarms set startig a month before in case he wants to plan something. Even though April 9th he called me so sad and disappointed and apologetic because he though he had missed it by two days when in fact it was a month away (may 7!). He just didnt label the alarms properly lol

    Kinda. I think women are more emotionally invested in anniversaries than men, and so they don’t really put forth a lot of effort into remembering them. It’s not a “I forgot” it’s more a, “I didn’t care enough to remember” thing.

    I kinda feel it’s a “sex-less” occurance. It’s totally dependent on your personality, your habits, your ability to remember long-term, and what you emotionally value. I’ve been with people who couldn’t remember if you tatooed it to their face and others who remembered before I was even aware it was “special” day. It’s easy to blame it on guys but women are just as prone to forget, again, depending on who you are as a person. 

    That being said, Darling Husband remembers each and every time without me making a peep.

    My boyfriend remembers anniversaries and details of our relationship much better than me!

    He’ll randomly pop out with something like “Remember the first time I visited you and we went to the Arboretum…….you forget don’t you?”

    I’ve never forgot an anniversary though….yet (3 is next Friday though so hopefully I remember!)

    He doesn’t forget because I spend a significant amount of time planning and we discuss what we want to do to celebrate. He’d have to be a total idiot to forget after all that talk. 

    That being said, a few months ago he was alerted that he would have to do a volunteer thing for work on our anniversary, and he didn’t decline because he didn’t recognize the date as our anniversary. When he told me this week, I was furious! So he did forget in that way.

    My Fiance doesn’t forget our anniversaries because we always do something special for them, planning in advance. So it would be hard to forget, really.

    We both forget unless there are lots of reminders posted everywhere.

    We WANT to remember and are upset if we forget, but it can still happen if it’s not written on tne calendar where we can both see it daily, or something like that.

    The idea of the “remember ring” is pretty cool lol But no, he never forgets.
