Have you ever run into someone...

...who seems to know you but you can't remember who they are? Happened to me today. I was walking outside on my college campus and a guy who was sitting somewhere said hi to me as I walked past him...said 'how've you been', and 'good to see you'. I had no idea who he was. After the fact, it occured to me that he might be a guy I worked with for a short period of time about a year ago, but if it was him his hair is a lot longer now than it was then. Anyway, I was pretty curious but I didn't bother going back 'cause it would be weird to say, 'hey I said hi back to you a minute ago but I don't know who you are, are you so-and-so?'

Anyone ever have this happen?

This happened to me yesterday at church. A woman said hello and my name, and I have no idea who she was.

I that movie.

It happened to me a few months ago in CVS. I ran into a girl I didn't recognize from a few years ago. I smiled and said hello back, but it took me until a few minutes after we stopped talking to figure out who she was.

That happened to me outside GM Place at Van 1. A guy waiting outside the ticket office like myself said he met me before and that we had talked somewhere. I don't remember him at all. But as we were talking, we found out we were both at Elevation 2001 in Vancouver and Salt Lake City. He has also been in my community for work reasons a few years ago. But I still never remembered meeting him although he said he had gained weight since then. Weird!

Got a tip though, if they know your name, say " What was your name again?" They will tell you their first name to which you respond "No, your last name, what was it again?' They tell you that too to which you respond "Right, I had forgotten" No feelings hurt. Works for me.

mm hmm. all the time.
this one girl always stops me in the halls at school and asks me how i am and whatnot. and when she asks she asks stuff about me that i didnt know she knew about me.. i don't even know who she is.. ..

it gets so awkward.

Last time it happened to me was at a restaurant, one of the waitresses I was sure I'd seen before somewhere, but couldn't remember, so when I went and asked her we spent 5 minutes trying to figure out where we knew each other from (she said I looked familiar too). It didn't work, and I still have no idea where I knew her from.

"hey, don't i know you from somewhere?"

I'm usually the one who remembers most people I meet, while they are just stumped as to where they know me.

Often times a familiar person will say "hey don't I know you?" I'll often lie and say no, especially if it's someone I don't particularly like.

Actually it went more like "Hey, excuse me...this is going to come out of nowhere, but I think I know you from somewhere. This isn't a line or anything, I really think I know you from somewhere but I can't remember where."

The "This isn't a line" part was the truth.

And no, I didn't get her number.
