    Similar a la opción de fsabroso, pero ¿se podría decir también: "I am not good when it comes to birthday dates?"

    ¡Hola! ;)
    Todas las sugerencias son buenas. Lo que no me suena natural en inglés es “birthday dates.” Creo que yo diría:

    I'm a disaster with birthdays
    I am not good when it comes to birthdays
    I am not good at remembering birthdays
    When it comes to birthdays, I’m a disaster!

    Espero que te sirva.
    :)

    Hi Everybody

    Just thought I'd let you know that we would say : "I'm hopeless with birthdays". Everyone would know by that that you can't remember whose birthday is when.

    Cheers.

    I am not good at remembering birthdays

    Estoy de acuerdo con esta sugerencia, a mi me suena más natural.

    Reina140, "I am not good at remembering birthdays", suena bastante natural, sugiero un leve ajuste "I am awful remembering birthdates".

    Another possibility - I'm useless at remembering people's birthdays.

    Remember the phrase needs an at (at least in BE). :)
