I"ve seen all the women in my family (three generations worth) say something like, "oh, it's (pick any date) and 5 years ago we were doing this, or this happened". As Chuckles said, they seem to associated the memory with a date. I often remember the same event, but have no association what so ever with a day, let alone a year. What's up with that?

Um, I don't think I said anything about that.

Maybe it is generational, cultural, socioeconomic or geographic but you seem to know different men and women than I do.

My wife always remembers where to find the screwdriver.

I think it is because men drink more (drink to forget) - may have something to do with it

Simple explanation, evolution, the whole hunter gatherer thing. Can't change a few million years of instinct with a few thousand years of civilization.

Now we are back to the 'corpus collosum' part of the brain. Mens is smaller, womens is larger! Not sure why, but probably so men could worry about one thing, ie fighting, or hunting. Women keep tabs of everything else!

so anyway, not sure there is a right or wrong answer to some of this stuff, but I am sure we men will be told what is right, even when wrong, and what is wrong, even when right. At least that is how my wife explains things!

Men and women are different, period. All the worrying, research and studying that gets done to try to show why, makes it sound like a disease that can, and should, be, cured. Go through life treating each person you meet as an individual, unique unto themselves, not what you might expect them to be.

If there weren't differences, comedians would have a lot less material to work with.

I was never able to deal with any woman long term. In the end I always just got tired of the drama and moved on. Sad, but true.

'Male and Female realities' by Joe Tanenbaum. It will make the men's lives, and by association, the women's, so much easier. I've seen it work in two separate occasions with my married friends. I was shocked that this guy's book was spoken out by two different couples, unsolicited. He nailed it.
