To be fair... I can name every single Pokèmon in the Pokèdex on sight, along with its type, and can usually identify it by its cry too, but I'm terrible with things like dates. I always forget when exactly my best friend's birthday is, and I've known her since grade school. I think the only reason I remember my boyfriend's birthday is because it's nine days after my own.

It's likely he just played Doom every day when he was 10 years younger. Between his younger brain and the constant repetition he probably created permanent memory of all of it. Meanwhile he doesn't have to state his wife's birthday every day and he's far decade older now.

He doesn't have messed up priorities because he remembers stuff from a video game rather than the wife's bday. Some people are just bad with dates. I will admit that he should maybe set the day on a calendar or something.

women have such unrealistic expectations from men... how am I supposed to remember your birthday when my mind is already so full of important things like model names, map layouts, sex line phone numbers, and where I hid my weed? it's crazy

Memory is a weird thing I can remember things from years ago when I can't remember what I did yesterday I'm sorry it happened though and he does need to make note of it for next year and make it up to you this year

I have a horrible memory, especially with birthdays, so I completely understand how someone can forget that kind of stuff. However with that said, with today's technology and everyone having phones on them, there's no reason for op not to put the birthday in his phone with an alarm going of the week before (in time to get a gift) and the day of so he remembers to say happy birthday. The calendar and reminders in my phone have saved my life, before them it was sticky notes.

In terms of memory, birthdays are harder. You just have to accept that there are 365 days in the year and most of them feel the same as the last. There aren't a lot of tricks to commit the "average" ones to memory.
