If a man remembers a woman's birthday (even after years), does that mean he really cares?


I had a relationship with a guy when I was a teen, he left after 2 months following an advice from a friend. But we never lost contact, even when I was married with children and he in a relationship with children etc...Until I left to the US and all of a sudden after 8 yrs he called me and figured out where I was! What surprises me most is that he knows my birthday even after all those years and never forgets to congratulate - he's better about it than other men I have been with. Now I heard once that a man only remembers the birthday if he really cares? Is that true?

    I love that answer..that is a sign indeed..that he figured out where she was..I agree. And yes to your statement about the person who connects on birthdays..it is just a sign of friendship.

    Well, when we met there was no facebook or all those mobile devices. And I am far far away, so no chance for quick entertainment or such. He dug out where I was after 8 yrs....would you do that when someone is so far away?

    He never used it as a pick up line nor does he work with gadgets/phonebooks. At the time when we met that was not around and we never celebrated my birthday during the two months we were together. We had no contact for 8 yrs....

    I disagree with you in one point. A marriage does not lead into divorce by staying in touch with other guys/girls from the past if both partners know and are aware of. I know my ex was in touch with females from the past. That's not why we divorced.

    Well said, Feenix. The question that beadreamer needs to find out is which one it is and to honestly consider each possibility with an objective mind. It is obvious that she is interested in him, and it is rather clear where she would like to take th

    I tend to agree with you, Lita. It sounds like this guy just wants to shake the tree a little to see what falls out. Remembering her birthday or finding the necessary documentation, is just a gag - it is the bait on the end of a sharp hook.

    Sounds like you should be asking him these questions instead of us. :0)

    It is obvious he has something on his mind, but one cannot assume it's altruistic. I wish you well and I hope this is everything you want it to be.

    For me there is nothing creepy about it. We had been in contact all the years until I came to the US and it broke off when I came here.
