Some of us have this sort of skill, and some of us ( myself included ) absolutely do NOT. There's nothing wrong with you at all, and this can be a useful skill, just like some people are better at specific sports than the rest of us. Arithmetical and number skills quite often seem also to be associated with a talent for languages. As for recalling the phone numbers of an ex, that doesn't need to be a problem --- you will only recall the numbers when you are choosing tto think about that person, and THAT is the issue to work on, alone or with a counsellor if it is a significant problem for you
