I have to agree with Salinas,just forget it. It may seem like a big deal to you but think of it this way guys arent prone to remember stuff like this. Heck I am the one that reminds Dh he needs to send his mom a card on her b-day. Of course I am the one that picks it out and shoves it under his nose to sign it so I can get it out in time for her b-day.
My dh even forgot our first wedding annivesary...yep kid you not. I let it go then since i figure I will have to let things like that slide alot. I can tell you he has either been out of the country or in another state for 2 of our anniversaries since he forgot the first one. In our nine years together he has only been home for four of my b-days. And I cant tell you how many gifts or cards were late for various dates because he would forget to get them in time. Does it bother me? No not in the least because other than that and his smoking he is a great husband.
Hey everyone!! :wave:

Had to toss in my two pennies here. Let me duck, so I dont get flamed too bad, but.....birthdays are special days for us. Especially if you are not a Mother (Mother's Day), Father (Father's Day), Veteran (Veteran's Day), or President (hehe...had to throw that in :D )!

Anyway, would YOU have forgotten his birthday? Doubtful. Sorry guys, but my husband had already planned my birthday 6 months in advance. He's already made plans for our anniversary as well. Call me old-fashioned, superficial, whatever you want, but I think it is important to remember those dates!! Those times are to celebrate the day that the wonderful person known as YOU came to be!! Or the day that WE became US! They ARE important. Guys.....they have calendars for a reason. Geez...you check your email, right?? Put the date on the calendar through your email and EMAIL yourself a reminder. I don't care how you remember. But it's important. To forget is like saying "You were not important enough for me to remember."

So come on you men!! You can remember what channel the GAME is on!! If you got a personal invite to the Playboy mansion, you Certainly wouldn't forget when you were supposed to go!!! So this "Oh, I'm a man, I'm entitled to forget things that are important to you and should not be held responsible for any hurt feelings..." Pffffffffft! :nono:

Anyway, I'm gonna duck on out now....*grabs flame-retardant gear*

I'm gonna have to duck with you because that's my opinion as well! No excuses for these forgetful fellows.
No flames from here...
I'm just on the side of heading a problem off at the pass (i.e. reminding them ahead) rather than setting yourself up to be upset (if you have the average guy who at best has only a nodding acquaintance with a calendar)
It's not so much that they forget, but there are those who would make them feel that if they "really loved us" they would remember.
So not true!!

We do what is important to us......
Men are "wired" diffferently in the memory for birthdays department? I don't buy it for a second. Try forgetting their birthday and see what happens. If my boyfriend didn't acknowledge my birthday, I'd be really hurt and mad. If they remember their own birthdays, they can remember their wife's or girlfriend's b-day. A card is not enough either. I expect to be taken out to a nice dinner, or to be served a nice dinner for my b-day. Otherwise the guy does not deserve me. sorry.
