Some of the best surprises I've ever pulled off involved pretending to be oblivious. Hope this was the case in your situation. But maybe I'm just an optimist.

Yeah it's not just men, I still have to ask my husband when exactly our anniversary is. Luckily we have a rug in the lounge with the date on, but I suppose people don't get things like that for dating anniversaries!

Me and my partner have been together six years and neither of us remember the day of the day we met/first date/etc anymore. Just the month. lol. Doesn't mean he doesn't love you OP, just might be bad with dates or just they're not important to him but the time you spend together is. (:

Surely, you didn't expect asking what day it was would spark his memory? Us guys have difficulty with this, give us something to grease the cogs... "So, do you know what today's date marks?" Or, "Isn't it somebodies anniversary today?" Would work nicely. Gotta be blunt with a lot of dudes.

Anyone who's been in a relationship that long should know these things. ESPECIALLY if they know this type of thing is important to their significant other.

That's so not true I can't remember a lot of things and it's not on account I don't try cause I do

If it's important to your partner, yes. writing down dates is not hard, folks. conversely, if something like that is important to you, make sure you let your partner know in advance so they don't wind up in double jeopardy for a)forgetting the special thing and b) not understanding how special it was in the first place.

My husband is horrible with remembering dates such as these, but ask him example: which team played in the 1995 Super Bowl and what the final score was and he's got it down to a T.

I can hardly remember a handful of birthdays without checking the calendar... I can't comprehend keeping track anniversaries.

I also can't remember our exact anniversary or our bangiversary. Have it in my calender though and get a popup on my mobile a day before.
