sounds great right? its not.. every since i was little i have been one of those people that for some reason people do not forget me.. and im not saying this as bragging either!! for example.. i grew up in florida.. i moved away at 14 and then YEARS later after i was grown and married i went back.. now think about this.. anyone at 14 does not look like they do grown up.. if anything you are totally awkward looking to where when people see you grown up they cant believe how much they have CHANGED!! NOPE NOT ME!! i did not look the same at all and people that i didnt even remember kept coming up to me and saying how great it was to see me and all that crap.. even when i dont even technically KNOW or MEET the people people still seem to know who i am and its annoying! i always get that whole "oh i know you from some where!" then start naming a function that was 10 years ago that i went to as a one time thing and we didnt even know anyone mutual or anything.. didnt even talk to them!! good thing i never tried to lead a life of crime since im pretty sure if my face was ever exposed i would be caught instantly!! im not unusual looking.. i dont have a 3rd eye or a tattoo that is noticeable that people would remember.. i just dont get it!! anyone else have this problem?? not to mention i had changed my hair multiple times during my life from bleach blond to maroon and people recognize me when i have the opposite hair color they last saw me at! funny to say but i wish i was FORGETTABLE!

ha ha ha ha ha... if I were you, I'd leverage on it and be a sales person. Cos if you are good, and you have an unforgetable face, you win hands down.

yeah but im annoyingly honest and cannot sell something i dont totally believe in.. i have jobs where i needed to sell stuff and at first it would be great but then i would find out the bad side of the product or whatever and then every time i would try to make a sale im like wondering if they will have the same problem and then when they ask me questions about it im like trying to not lie but sell it still which doesnt work

I always get...you look just like....then they procede to tell me or bring a picture and I think.....I don't even look a little like that...or I get...the older you get the more that you look like your mother.....well that is not an insult. My mother was very pretty! But somehow I don't see the resemblence! LOL

i dont look like either of my parents unless you like break it down to like a feature or something and then its a stretch lol.. i know i did a thing online to tell me who my celeb twin was and i got that chic that played in the flicka movie (the remake) i could honestly see it in that (and that wasnt a great thing because shes not all that pretty) but the bone structure was identical.. but i mentioned it to some people and they are like WHAT?!?!

I always look like someone else. I alway get you look like my friend so and so. When person swore i was this chic they knew in Alabama. I was like um no...only been there as a passing through to another state thing. So which is worse...always looking like someone else or always being remembered.

everyone wants to be unforgettable. but as for me, to hear someone says that he will never forget me because i shared to him or her the gift of salvation is more than enough. and to lead persons and people to Christ would be such an honor.
