So you talked to him this morning about wanting to go and he still forgot?

I don’t know that I’d deal too well with that especially if you are having trouble making friends.

I’d address it calmly but make sure he knows you are really hurt by what he did and “oops sorry I forgot” isn’t going to cut it.

I’m sorry that happened.

I am so sorry he did that. That would make me really upset too. I would make dinner tonight, only enough for you and say you figured he wasn’t hungry. Ok, I probably wouldn’t do that, but I would talk to him and tell them how upset you are. I don’t think “having a bad memory” is a good enough reason to do something completely different then what the two of you had already discussed.

That would tick me off, too.  But it sounds as though your communication wires got crossed, maybe?  Do you think he interpreted something as your not wanting to go to the luncheon?  But, honestly, men sometimes!  They could learn to talk, lol.  Try to find out the explanation for it when you see him at dinner, maybe he really just thought you didn’t feel up to going.

I’m amazed at what people can forget sometimes – myself included. And my Fiance is contantly telling me to remind him of things, and I’m afraid I’m nagging, but he says I’m not.

I know you must be so terribly disappointed. You’ll have other chances to meet people, though.

@texasbee:  I think it’s really important you let him know how important it is for you to meet people and how he really dropped the ball.

He’s a grown man. Tell him to put important things on his calendar. Or better yet, use a joint google calendar that is on his phone and set reminders for him. He should be doing this himself but it can’t always be on you to call him and remind him to do things.

The “oops I forgot” method wouldn’t fly at work, so it shouldn’t fly in marriage either. 

Darling Husband and I sometimes have issues where he loses track of time. It’s taken a long time to work through that and have him understand that I don’t mind if he’s going to be late, I mind when i’m left hanging and don’t know whether he’s going to be late or not. I’ve told him I no longer accept “I lost track of time” as an excuse, especially when I have bought him a nice watch in the past!

Wow that’s pretty bad. I’d be angry too. I think you should let him know how upset you are (shouldn’t be hard), but in the end chalk it up to a miscommunication mistake. These things happen.
