Can I share a secret with you? Do you promise not to tell anyone?
Oh, the irony of that statement.
I have the hardest time remembering names.
If remembering someone's name is considered the best compliment one could ever give, forgetting someone's name is probably the biggest social blunder one could make at parties and gatherings.
Well, events like the one below, happen to the best of us more often than we would like to admit. And, the scenario usually plays out something like this:
Being socialites in our late-20s and early-30s, we attend parties and functions where we fraternize with new acquaintances all the time. During those get-togethers, jokes and good times are shared.
Unfortunately, at the close of the evening, we go our separate ways and disappear into our private lives. We rarely consider getting each other's contact information; we'll just connect on Facebook.
