Over the years, I've been contacted by many a people from the past,
and I still find it awkward when people say,
'I'm not sure if you remember me but we used to be in primary/secondary/tuition/college together '
For a second I think they either say that to be polite, by assuming I wouldn't remember them, or that they are being rude by implying that I have the mental capacity of a gold fish. Personally, I don't think people do ever forget meeting or knowing others. People can forget names but not faces or the things people have done to you. And ultimately, you never can quite forget the people who have lost the rights to say they know you now anymore.
So maybe I'm over thinking this, like everything else, but it just stops me for a moment before I reply them saying that of course I remember them, we went to primary/secondary/tuition/college together and how could I forget. Maybe it's the natural PR person in me, but a bridge unburnt is one not lost. But unlike awkward statements from people of the past, there is a statement I do not over think at all when I receive it in my Inbox.
'I'm not sure if you remember me, but we used to date'
That just cracks me up every time.
Speaking of people that we used to know, here's a related watch.

And my response to exes contacting me trying to be friendly?
They used to know parts of me I don't even know anymore and being reminded of that is......counterproductive to my future.We evolve out of Life necessity and being reminded of where I was, what I was, serves no propelling purpose. But mostly, I don't want to be fake friends because they gave up and so did I. So if 'We' aren't worth working out, what makes them think the regression of Love is Friendship?
