Why do women get so uptight about exact dates?

    Obviously you're a male pretending to be a female for attention here, but can you pretend to remember when you decided to call yourself "Hannie"?

    Yeah, which makes why you can't understand men so easily acceptable - as soon as you get on our level of higher intelligence, you'll understand why we think the way we do, and realize that logic and reason have a place in society.

    Just a generalization but I think it holds true. Women are detail-oriented. Men don't care as much about what, when, where, who, how, or whatever. Just let us have at it and we'll figure it out from there.

    It's like planning for events. When a bunch of guys get together there is no detailed plan, or least not like an event planned by women.

    Men and women are different. vive la différence!

    I would actually argue that our minds are more evolved. We can see humor in everything. We learn how to not let things bother us. You on the other hand get mad when we laugh at something and then bring up something from years ago.

    I try and recall dates by what vehicle I was driving at the time You know, “we were driving the ‘87 pickup so it had to be between ‘87 and ‘93”. It drives my wife nuts.

    Again, it's all about details. Women are like computers when it comes to bringing up things from the past. It's all there on the hard drive and never really goes away.

    Ya, then you ask a women, any women, an open-ended question like, “what do you want for dinner?”

    The canned response, “I dunno, what do YOU want?” And so it begins...

    Tell her you have reservations already and she has to guess where. Take her to the 2nd or 3rd guess (#1 is always far too expensive).

    If I used that method, I'd have to say, "well, we were driving the Jeep, so it had to be between 1997 and 2019", so I'm not sure how helpful that would be.

    Typically, it's because they are trying to establish guilt or who's to blame. It's like in a courtroom where lawyers are trying to establish timelines.

    "Our minds are much more precise than men's. It's because we are more highly evolved."

    And humble, too. ;)

    I lived with a girl once, and one time she asked me to do her laundry. I turned the water as hot as it would go and added a half a container of bleach. I made $3000 worth of Barbie clothes that were all white that day. She never asked me to do laundry again.

    (FTR, none of this is true, and I stole the joke portion from an old Tim Allen bit.)

    Too funny. My wife is definitely my navigator as far as keeping track of dates as well as time lines and milestones, and even upcoming appointments. She has a good head for that stuff. Me, not so much.

    My wife can recall dates way better than I can. Her ability to remember dates is amazing. And it irks her when I estimate the time frame wrong too.

    A man walking on a beach finds a Genie lamp, rubs it and the Genie comes out.

    I will grant you one wish.

    I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but Im afraid of flying and boats. Can you build me a bridge.

    The logistics would be impossible to create such a bridge with multiple spans is a monumental task. Are you sure there isnt another wish you may have?

    Can you please help me to explain women?


    Genie, that bridge. Do you want it two or four lane?
