I have that experience all the time. The thing is that I have now lived in 3 different cities in two different countries and I keep thinking that I am seeing friends, but it takes me a moment to remember that I know those people from a different country and so it can't be them!! I have also had the experience where someone has come up to me to say hello and have a chat only to realise that they thought I was someone else. I am always happy to have a chat, even if I don't know the person so it didn't worry me in any way. Apparently though, just about everyone in the World will have at least one other person somewhere that looks very similar, if not near identical to them based purely on the odds due to the amount of people that there are in the World now!

Hi Free, sometimes i do came across the same experience like yours when i was at the shopping malls. It had been a few times i nearly call some girls and even guys because i thought they are my ex-classmates or colleagues. When i walk nearer, then i discovered that they are not my ex-classmates or colleagues. I really feel shy when i walk nearer and saw they are strangers not people that i know.

Oh yes I've had this kind of encounter, too many to count lol! I'm just too bad with names and faces that I sometimes become too friendly greeting a perfect stranger. And sometimes I end up snubbing those whom I really, say, went to school with. A quick apology and quick retreat usually bail me out of embarassment. For a while, lol!

Well,I sort of had a experience like this.I was walking on a boulevard going to a bus station.I talked with a friend of mine that we will meet there and take the bus home.As I got near the station,I saw someone who wore clothes which resembled those my friend wore in the morning.Without waiting,I ran(the bus was behind),grabbed her hand,said "Come on,let's go!",heading to the buss.When I saw she hesitated,I looked back.It was someone else! looking at me in panic,then starting to scream for help! Oh my God,I felt so embarrassed,especially because my friend saw all the action occur!
