I just started dating this girl, she's great but she's pretty darn chatty. I care about her and what she has to say, but honestly I feel like a lot of it goes in one ear and out the other.
I don't mean to be forgetful or whatever, but I just can't help it! In general I can be fairly forgetful with what people tell me (I do better with written words and numbers and stuff),
I feel like this will eventually be a pretty unfortunate part of our relationship. Is this normal? Anything I can do to help?

yesss. I remember everything he tells me. Kind of creepy almost in some instances.. just the other day I was talking about how the school we were driving by reminded me of the day we left for the island together where we spent the night in my brother's empty apartment. He said why do I have such a connection, what would make me link this random school and our trip to the island?
I said because he picked me up from the school before we left. I remember waiting for the ferry to the island because that was when he freaked out that he saw his exes mother..
So yeah, I remember everything. Him, not so much. Sometimes he'll surprise me, but I'm cool with him not remembering everything. Everyday things he tells me, I'm guilty of tuning out pretty quickly. Just explain to your girl that she'll have to slow down cause you can't keep up and she should be cool with it.0

My girlfriend has a mind like a steel trap. She remembers everything. I on the other hand can barely keep track of anything. It inevitably leads to some moments where she is annoyed with me. No big deal. They adjust to it as long as you remember the right things.
Women just talk a lot about things guys really don't care about. It's enough to feign interest and interject with a question or statement every now and then that you know will draw her in.
I always envision my girlfriend as starting the day with a full cup, it's my job to empty the cup throughout the day. After a while you learn the things that are important and the things that are not. You just have to invest enough so that you have enough credit when you inevitably fuck up its not a big deal.2
