I dunno. I blank out in things with my Fiance. I haven’t memorized a number in probably 10 years. I have to reset passwords regularly. I can’t remember where he went to college even though he’s told me more than once.

He remembers everything, down to the smallest detail, and he does sometimes get that exasperated tone when he has to tell me something over again. I don’t do it on purpose and in some cases have taken to writing things down so I can’t forget them.

It sounds like he didn’t think to wake you up cause he generally doesn’t have to, and he probably never paid attention to how much sugar you put in your coffee because, well, why would he? I think it’s sweet he tried to make it up to you the next day even though it wasn’t his fault. So I’m the dreamy one, he’s the detailed one.

youngbrokebride:  I agree with you, just a quirk that can be annoying but it’s so sweet how he kept trying to rectify it. Lol waking you up early with polluted coffee:-) 

My Fiance remembers everything and gets offended that I don’t. When we first started dating LD, I was working on a super stressful commercial up until the minute I was taking off for the airport. I had no clue what flight, etc- I had that all saved on my phone, one thing at a time. I knew the time and airport. That’s how I roll cuz I fly a lot! Well, he got all hurt that I didn’t know his address by heart on my way to the airport. Hello, I’m gps-ing it when I land! 

Different strokes I guess. But if he messed up my coffee I would have RED FLAGS all over the place😇😎

Hell, I don’t know my husband’s phone number either. I can’t tell you the last time I memorized a phone number.

I get him on the feeling dumb part. I feel that way, too, sometimes, even though I know that he’s not trying to make me feel that way and doesn’t think I’m dumb.

It really isn’t intentional. Some things just don’t stick, even after I’ve heard them several times. And what sticks is just as random as what doesn’t. I can’t remember how he takes his coffee or what his favorite beer is, but I remember what pants he wore the last time we went to the movies. Totally useless thing to remember that has no significance at all, but it’s in my head for some reason. I make an effort to remember the details and he tries to not let my occasional absent mindedness bother him. 🙂

My SO forgets everything important, his phone, wallet, keys, swipe card for work. The best thing ever is that my mum bought him these locator things that connect to an app and beep for you to find. I didn’t remind him about his dad’s birthday last week, because I told him about it the day before and thought he’d remember but nope, he had to give an awkard day late call.

He’s a bit of a scatter brain but then comes out of nowhere with remembering a story he wrote for me 3 years ago and finding a website I mentioned to look up what craft supplies to buy me out of the blue.

Lolol I wish you hadn’t specified no red flags, I was dying to see someone red flag his lack of interest in your coffee tastes. 😂

The alarm thing, yes! Oh my gosh. That happens to me. Worst part is its your own fault, so you can’t even legitimately be mad! I think I’d be more frustrated over being woken up five minutes before my alarm though…lol. Even for coffee. My Boyfriend or Best Friend definitely knows better than that!

youngbrokebride:  My Fiance knows how I take coffee.  That’s HUGE for me, lol.  But a lot of other things, he has the excuse, “I have a penis.”  Um, ok.  So that means that he doesn’t understand anything that isn’t completely concrete and masculine, I guess.  I take the good with the bad.  I highly recommend reading (and having him read the pertinent parts as well) the love languages book.  It seems like there are things that are important to you that he’s not doing, yet he doesn’t have a clue about it.

youngbrokebride:  Oh, and I don’t know my FI’s number.   I really should and I know that, but stupid cell phones have made my brain lose the ability to remember phone numbers!

Let’s see, the other night I was making salmon in foil packets and I sent him to the store for some butter to cook them with. I stressed three times, you have to get ACTUAL butter, not margarine.

 

He came back with “I can’t believe it’s not butter!” He didn’t realize it wasn’t butter beacuse it said “butter” on the package and it confused him…

I have no idea what FI’s number is but he knows mine, but that’s mostly because if I ever leave him a voicemail it says my number before giving him the message so he’s heard it a lot of time. He actually remembers a lot of little details, including how I take my coffee but whatever reason Fiance can never remember my schedule.

I work two jobs so every day is different and I’m an instructor at a community college so it changes every 4 months (each semester) but I’ve had the same schedule since January and he still can’t remember that I work till 7 on Wednesdays so sometimes I get a text asking where I’m at and I just laugh and roll my eyes every time before texting back that I’m still at work because it’s Wednesday. Or he’ll make plans with our friends and not remember what time I work till so I end up just having to be late because he thought I got off earlier than I actually do.
