Well, oftentimes my old friends and schoolmates don't recognize me when they first see me in places unless I actually greet them first. But it usually isn't because they're deliberately acting like they don't know me. They always tell me I look so different when I was a kid. But if they were deliberately not recognizing me, I would probably not feel so bad. Well, "I don't know them too!", that's all I would tell myself. People who are like this are most probably insecured about themselves that either they want to pretend they are somebody "big" who can't remember old friends, or are simply hiding something about themselves that they don't want to be recognized by anyone.

Usually it's me that doesn't recognize the person approaching me. But it's completely normal, you have to realize that the other person probably has allot of people he/she has met, and it would be impossible to remember everyone if you have hundreds of acquaintances.
