I’m with you.  My husband NEVER makes plans.  You’re lucky yours even suggested going out to dinner!  Mine never does that even.  If I want to go out, I have to suggest it AND the place.  My husband makes ZERO decisions and comes up with ZERO plans.  So I hear your frustration – I’m in the same boat!

OH yeah!! even just wedding as an example.  I’m planning the entire wedding, rehearsal dinner, people’s travel plans, hotels.  I even had to semi plan my own bridal shower and bachelorette party!  Its like I’m the only one who can actually get anything done!

Yep 🙂 Common guy issue. We have three strategies. 

1) Sometimes I just designate a you-do-it night. I flat out tell him: I’ve been planning too much lately. i want to go out, i want to have fun, and i want to NOT have to think about it. Make it happen. 

2) In general we try to take turns.. we’re very “i picked dinner last night it is SO your turn”

3) If we can’t remember whose turn it is to pick, we do pick-3. You pick 3 options, I’ll decide from there.

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS!! And FH seems to think that makes him a great guy. He’ll ask what I want to do but never suggest anything. Drives me CRAZY!!

Yup, I plan everything from wedding to vacations. I am the person who can’t make a decision when he asks me where to go for dinner.  I always say I don’t care.

Other than that I do all the planning, not so much the deciding part. haha

@Corgi-  Those are really good ideas.  I shall pitch that to the DH.
