Do you ever feel forgettable. As in you meet someone and when you see them again unless you’re with your husband or your dog (yes the dog) they don’t remember who you are. Don’t worry this isn’t a woe is me post, more of an observation.
I’ve met numerous people at the yacht club where hubby sails and while walking, often with hubby and Jack the dog, but when I’ve then seen these people without hubby or dog they wouldn’t have a clue who I am.
It got me wondering if maybe I’m just that type of forgettable person? Some people have defining features like gorgeous red curly hair, or are extremely tall, but I’m just pretty average.
There was even people at our wedding (friend’s of John’s) that when I’ve seen them without John they haven’t had a clue who I was!
I understand in some circumstances a quick meet and greet when you’re busy may mean that you’re not entirely concentrating, but I’d like to think that when I meet people I will remember them.
I can often be quite bad with names, and try to remember to tell myself to do that thing where you say it back to them, as in nice to meet you Liz, but of course that doesn’t always happen. But while I sometimes suck with names I never forget a face. And if I can’t remember your name or where I’ve met you I’ll still smile at you!
How do you remember new people that you’ve met? Do you ever feel forgettable?
