Today, I ran into an old friend for whom I used to have feelings. I hadn't seen her in years, so I thought it would be funny if I went up to her and said, "Hey, you look familiar, do I know you?" She thought I had really forgotten her and burst into tears. FML

Last time I tried that the wife hit me.


I'm sorry you have to live with that, 17. I first learned about face blindness when watching a PBS special on Chuck Close (an artist with face blindness. I have a feeling you've heard of him though? ) It sounds like a real booger of a illness (? idk what to call it. may condition instead). When I am without glasses or contacts, everyone looks like a colorful blur. It freaks me out and when I forget to have contacts when I go running I have to basically rub blind (ish) and it is terribly anxiety inducing. I can't imagine never being able to recognize people.. It sounds very isolating :c Maybe it makes your hearing better in recognizing voices though. or some other coping technique... *hug*

My guess, he probably feels like shit after unintentionally breaking her heart with what he felt was nothing more than a silly conversation starter

Maybe he doesn't like making a woman feel like shit? I had a similar situation, though not joking. It doesn't make either party feel fantastic.
