I know that title is harsh but sometimes he says things that throw me off so much I feel a bit shocked. For example...

He has a step sister who he has known for nearly 10 years (that's around the amount of time his dad and step mum have been going out) and I met her recently. A couple hours after meeting her I asked him to remind me what her name was and this is what happened....
ME: What is that girls name again?
HIM: Who??
ME: Your step sister?
HIM: What? (he literally has no clue what I'm talking about and this goes on a few times)
ME: The girl I just met... your step sister!!!
HIM: I don't know..
ME: You don't know your sisters name???
HIM: No
at this point I give up, I'm kind of inwardly shocked and don't know how to proceed.

Other things have happened too, like when Donald Trump was elected president I messaged him saying something like "Can you believe the election results??" and he replied "what is that?" and I was shocked again and I replied "Donald Trump was elected president". He replied with something like "sorry I don't know what that is." A similar thing happened with the EU referendum.

These are just a few examples... should I be worried? :O

It sounds silly but it's actually badly affecting me

Not weird but definitely a slight bit obtuse.

I think he is doing that to wind you up, you can't not know the name of sibling.

I swear he is serious. I am not lying things like this actually happen. I wonder if I'm actually going mad sometimes.

Well, how about having a chat with him about it - that might help.

Yeah I understand that and I don't mean to offend you. It's not those individual things that bother me. It's more of a trend that I've found and I find strange and I just wanted others opinions but sorry you took it badly

it sounds like either that is his sense of humour or he is in serious need of help from a doctor

I know, I have no idea what to do. I'm really worried about him. He's so caring and fun to be with but I'm so lost at the moment. Things that happen seem a bit funny/odd individually but they just add up to the point where it stresses me out and I don't know what to do.

yes, if he's serious and not joking then I would be very worried too. i think firstly, speak to him about it... maybe make a note of every time he does something like it and then show him and ask him what he thinks. if you can't get through to him then can you speak to his parents or another family member? or perhaps go to the doctor and describe his symptoms.

Ok I'll definitely try that I really appreciate your advise as lots of people don't seem to take these questions seriously. He has already been to the doctors over mental health related things but he never really shares it with me. I think they're connected more to anxiety though.
