There's the age-old cliche that men have a terrible memory for dates. It's been the topic of at least one episode in every comedy ever made. We supposedly forget birthdays, valentine, her birthday, etc.
I have never had any trouble remembering important dates, and I don't think any of my male friends has either.
So has anyone of you girls ever found the stereotype to be true?
Mainly I was talking about important dates with his partner though. I can't remember everyone's birthday either, that's where Facebook comes in.

Nope. I'm below average at remembering dates and my boyfriend is great at it. Only one of my exes was bad at it but I'm pretty sure it's because he didn't give a crap about it :P I do hear a lot of stories from girl friends, but their choice of male company is usually not that great in general, so...
I do know some guys who seriously fit just about every male stereotype you can think of and are proud of it, it's like someone yanked them right out of a laughtrack sitcom. Maybe if the media stopped portraying men as dumbf*** cavemen and women as catty naggy bitches, it wouldn't ring true as often in reality.
But anyway, even besides personal experience, there's no logical reason to believe that it's some universal truth, unless someone tries to make the "innate brain differences from birth" argument.0
