    • Sometimes, if you are lucky, you start to introduce the person with you to the other person, and the other person will say their name so you don’t have to!

      If you‘re really lucky, you’ll remember an anecdote about that other person and can say, “so-and-so and I used to work at the bank” or something like that.

    • hahhahaha! I forgot my fiances name! Fortunately, the friend I was introducing him to, remembered his name from a previous conversation! And he still married me! lol

      Okay, so now I just say, “I’m so sorry, but for some reason I can’t remember your name!” They are usually pretty forgiving.

      Blessings,

    • I am so bad with names it is horrible.  When I first met my husband if I couldn’t remember a persons name, I would shy away from introductions.  He would get so mad at me.  So now I just say “This is my husband Peter” and the other person always introduces themselves and I am safe.

    • Ugh - I do this ALL the time!

      I pretty much do the same as Coachmombabe.  I’ll say, “I’m so sorry...  what is your name, again?”  Just like Coachmombabe’s experience, they are always pretty forgiving.

    • I always forget peoples names. Thankfully it wasnt like that where you meet someone and then within the hour reintroduce them to my friend.  So I can more easily say.. Im sorry I forgot your name.

    • I do this all the time if no one else is around I just say I forget your name.  Since I know i do this, when people introduce themselves I warn them I will forget so they wont feel bad when I ask.
      Another thing I do is tell my husband if I don,t introduce him to someone that means I forgot their name. He is to introduce himself and say whats your name so I am not stuck with an awkward moment then I apologize for not introducing him.
      Like Deanna, if someone else is there, I say this is so and so and then drop the other side and that person I introduced or the other person will ask or tell their name.
