Fiance is God Awful at planning.  He’ll try to plan a night away for us the very morning he wants it to happen and then gets pissy when there are no nice places to stay that are available.  Or, even worse, he’ll mention it for the first time that morning and then get upset with me if I already have plans for that night.

Luckily for me, generalizations don’t apply to my SO. We are leaving tomorrow for a trip to Hawaii on a trip totally planned by him.

Darling Husband is a planner then change said plan, then cancel said plan then plan again, then cancel the plan again then just be inpromptu and have everything be overly stressful and not go how his head thinks it should.  Utterly frustrating when he does it.  I try to take control of anything that needs to be planned so it gets done correctly.

Men are time opportunists.

Meaning, they always believe they have more time than they really do.

Totally agree. Fiance was going on a weekend fishing trip with his brother and a couple mates but said he wasn’t sure if it was going ahead. So everyday of the week leading up to the weekend I would ask ‘are you going? because you need to get a few things if you are.’ Response ‘I’m not sure yet’.

Thursday rolls around and yeah they’re going. Made panic to the shops to get what he needs, warm clothes, beanie, etc. Me: Do you need to take food? Fiance: I don’t think so.

Best I manage is to get him to pack a bag of crisps. They leave Friday afternoon. I get a lovely weekend to myself. Comes back Sunday – Me: How was is? Fiance: I was starving! There was no food but a tiny BBQ and the crisps!

SERIOUSLY?! Thank god I’m planning the honeymoon!!

@tksjewelry:  +1!!!!!!! Exactly like my Fiance.  He tries but it always ends up being a huge stressful mess.

LOL its not just men, FH and I are both terrible planners. He is of the last minute type, and I am the worrying/second guessing type.

LOL. This is one of those age old questions. Which came first…the chicken or the egg…why can’t men plan…there’s no point in trying to figure it out, there is no right answer. LOL. *sigh* MEN!

Wow, wow, hold the boat honey bee.

My 2 strongest strengths are planning and organising (I’m a guy and I’m not gay).  

The wife to be does not like planning or organising but has a number of strengths that I don’t have.

So not all men are that bad.

Our wedding plans will be jointly shared.
