Sooner or later you will find yourself in the awkward situation of not remembering someone’s name. 
Even worse, they know your name and, no matter how hard you try, you can’t remember theirs!

So, how do I ask when they already know me by name?
1.	Don’t make it a big deal. Say something like: “My mind’s gone blank; I’m trying to say your name but I can’t remember it no matter how hard I try!”.
2.	Add humor into the mix to make the situation seem lighter than it is.
3.	Be completely honest about it.
4.	Once you know the name, forget the whole thing happened.

Why you shouldn’t I feel bad if you don’t remember someone’s name?
1.	You’ll probably forget plenty of them by the time you reach old age! Realize it happens and don’t stress.
2.	Most of the time, someone won’t even realize you don’t remember their name.
3.	You’re not committing a crime or a terrible act. You simply forgot a name.

What if someone knows my name and I’ve never met them?
1.	It might be a stranger trying to scam you or similar – but you shouldn’t assume that’s the case right away.
2.	Instead of asking for a name, simply ask where you know each other from.
3.	Don’t give out information if you’re not sure who that person is.
4.	Always remain calm and, most importantly, polite!
