Thanks to PMSBuddy, Masses of Clueless Dudes are Tracking Women’s Menstrual Cycles and Taking Them Very Seriously, Too

There are numerous creepy things a guy can do while you’re dating him. There is the ever-so-annoying groping underneath the table while out to dinner, the bestowing of gross nicknames like honey buns, or taking the asinine suggestions offered by Men’s Health in their list of how to please a lady, but none, in my opinion, are quite as creepy as the guy who keeps track of their girlfriend’s or wife’s menstrual cycle.

Thanks to a website and app created by a 28-year-old Australian man, over 100,000 men are now alerted to their ladies time of the month. PmsBuddy.com was launched after CEO and founder, Jordan Eisenberg, noticed most of his friends were having PMS-related relationship …

… woes.

“PMSBuddy.com is a free service created with a single goal in mind: to keep you aware of when your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister, daughter, or any other women in your life are closing in on “that time of the month” – when things can get intense for what may seem to be no reason at all.

For women, this is a great way to give people in your life a heads-up of when you might be feeling a bit irritable without having an awkward conversation.

What’s more, we will not only keep you informed, but will give you some free advice on what to do about it. With PMSBuddy.com, there is no reason to ever be blindsided by PMS again.”

Ridiculous right?  Worse yet is the site’s motto: “Saving relationships, one month at a time!”  Because clearly all of life’s big relationship problems revolve around the menstrual cycle of a woman.  All issues between men and women fall under the category of a woman being affected by her hormones.  Men are never to blame, they are merely innocent bystanders to the insanity. If only all of life’s problems really were that simple, maybe we would all have rainbow-striped unicorns and shiny pots of gold.

While I admit that PMSBuddy is comical (they have a national alert section that tracks how many women are pmsing on any given day), the tragedy is that some men swear by it.  A select group of men apparently believe that being alerted to their woman’s period is a complete life saver.  So please, for the love of God, don’t date or marry that guy.  There is nothing worse than a dude convinced that all relationship woes can be explained away solely by their woman’s raging hormones.  Stay far, far away from that guy.

  1. I wish my husband kept track of this.
    The issues my husband and I have are in no way caused by PMS. But every month I am far more sensitive to our issues and they affect me far more than they do the other three weeks of the month.
    If he knew to tread lightly around those particular issues during that time, it would save us both a lot of heartache.

  2. Alzaetia… he’s not typical. Most of us can figure it out (although some of us do have to remove our shoes to aid in the process. :)

    Seriously – if you’re truly intimate with a woman on a regular basis, it isn’t very hard to notice the physical changes in the shape, feel, taste, and personal scent of her body.

  3. Is it so weird that I just tell my boyfriend when I’m on my period and he can usually figure out if he needs to be sensitive.

  4. My husband keeps track of mine, and to be honest I kind of love it. I am TERRIBLE about forgetting to buy and pack tampons, and he is totally on top of that. Its also nice not to have to remind him to take what I say that week with a grain of salt, or that I prefer that he not make plans with our friends that weekend.

    I kind of don’t understand why a partner tracking your cycle is offensive- isn’t it nice to get support, understanding and help without having to ask? It anything, I would think we would be lauding them for being sensitive to the unique physicality of our gender.

  5. Years ago there used to be a small computer app that resided in the system tray that did the same thing. It’s not something to base a whole relationship on but it certainly does help having that extra info.

  6. Sarah, I feel like slitting my T1 line.
    I cleared the cache, cookies AND my living room when I started cussing (yep, I’m a known cusser!)

    It is still not working. I have to click refresh 2 or 3 times before articles and comments show up. That is on every page!

  7. I treat women as if they are half-insane (actually I treat everyone like that), if you expect irrational behavior for no apparent reason you can roll with just about anything. I have found that most woman appreciate a man who will act like nothing is wrong when they go ape-sh*t.

  8. I don’t think the point here is that all relationship problems are caused by menstruation. I think keeping track of your partner’s cycle can be a healthy and helpful thing. I have pretty bad PMS, and I always let my boyfriend know when it’s that time so that if and when I do act more irritable or sensitive than usual, he understands that it’s not because there’s something wrong with our relationship, it’s just because my hormones are going a little nuts. No, PMS doesn’t cause all relationship problems, but to deny the fact that it does change us temporarily is just silly. Maybe this is a good step in the direction of women AND men feeling more comfortable talking about and dealing with a very natural, and unfortunately stigmatized, bodily function.

  9. you can’t take these kind of jerks serious. They clearly are just frustrated at something and are throwing the blame at women unfortunately. It’s sad as women have been victimized enough throughout history, women as a whole don’t need this kind of shabby treatment. Just try you best to ignore them and their followers, I’m sure they’ll fade from existence soon enough.

  10. I think it’s a great idea. There are other benefits, like for people trying to conceive. If yor partner cares enough to keep track it shows he cares about you.
