Dates = the fruits? calendar dates? appointments? people? something else?
Relevant how many dates?
"Dates" helped in hitting your head? helped in avoiding your head being hit? helped you getting along with your head almost being hit?
Other people relevant?

Helped physically? Emotionally?

Hit as in bump? fall? slam? slip?

Helped directly? Indirectly? hard to answer
Helped physically? Emotionally? emotionally

Hit as in bump? this one fall? slam? or this one slip? but I'm not certain where the limits between these are in all cases, English not being my first language

was there a calendar hung on the wall that you had to look at, but it was below a cabinet so you hit your head while looking at the dates?

Are calendars involved? Or just dates?
Historical dates? Deadlines? Reminders? Special occasions?
Relevant what specific dates of the year they were?

The "head" in this riddle... is it even your head? Your human head? Or are we talking about the head of a nail? Something else?

Did you almost hit your head ON something? Or did you almost hit your head WITH something? Or did you almost hit your head with your own hand?
E.g. *facepalm*

The FA - Was it that I was acting as if you HAD hit your head?

so we have at least 2 dates, and an aural connection... were you listening to the radio? to someone else? did you THINK you heard one date, when another actually said?
