It's been more than two weeks now since the last time my highschool batchmate started to get in touch with me. All this time I thought he was my freshman classmate. Everytime I get a chance to catch up with my highschool friends and classmates I am just so happy. I was so excited when one time a high school batchmate messaged me and we had a long conversation. He got my number and we exchanged text messages most of the times, sharing where we are now, what's going on with our lives now, talking about our other highschool buddies. All those times, I thought he was my classmate. So funny when last night I learned it wasn't him. It just so happened they have the same first name. OMG!! I was really laughing when I have learned about it. he was laughing as well. Now I know, we actually have never been classmates and checking him on fb, it seems I am not familiar with him.. OMG..Well he is still my batchmate though.. Has there been an instance this also happened to you?

I could imagine how awkward that might have been. I myself get embarrassed for just mistaking a person as someone I know. What more if I've been talking with him or her for quite some time already. But it's good that you both had a good laugh about it. Some might not react to a similar situation in a positive manner.

For real, my initial reaction was actualy like 'oh wow' but then good thing we just laugh at it after all. It's kinda embarrasing on my part, maybve he had sense it so he just laught to lighten the mood.. He is agood person though based on how he interacts so that could be one reasojn why he just figured it out positively. But really.. it's so funny..:)

Its so funny, . you people didn't realize it through all your talks, at least you memorized all your school days like that. I never had any such incidence.

Yeah.. it is really funny. Glad that we still remember our good old days when we were in highschool. Now I know why he was asking me before if I know someone with the last name of Ramos living in this place. I thought he just can't remember the name, but now I got the answer it's because he was never our classmate. He was actually asking about my classmate Angelica because there was an instance he dropped by to their place to fix their pc.. Maybe if there will be an instance you will be trapped into such situation, you'll laugh at yourself as well..

I almost had a situation like that but something kept telling me to recheck their facebook profile to really get confirmation on if I really know the person or not. It was really more security purposes because I don' t want to have a full blown conversation with someone thinking I know them and then finding out I don't. It's not that great to me if something like that really happens to me. It maybe funny to a certain point but still will feel bad.

I wasn't able to check his acct really. Because I know he was one of my highschool batchmates since he is included on our group. The good thing about it is that it's confirmed we are highschool batchmates. It just so happen he was not the person I thought he is. It was really funny for me and I don't feel bad about it..

I actually have a person on my facebook account that I contacted because there wasn't a picture but the entire name was the same as the person who I was looking for... So when he accepted my requested and I saw it was the wrong person, I did apologize and told him its just an error. but he said it was ok anyway he liked making new friends...But I explained I was really trying to locate my friend from years ago..I don't know this person and I certainly don't care what he is doing in his life.. I really don't need friends that bad to just request people I do not know...I have so many request now that I refuse to confirm because I don't have any idea who they are...LOL....

That case is of course different. As for me I also don't like confirming friend requests from people whom I do not know or don't even have a mutual friend. I am not fond of collecting 'fb friends" as well. I really ignore requests. Worst, I even delete some "friends" or would blocked those who keep on nagging me as if they are close to me. I don't know but it's just so irritating. I don't know if you have encountered the same thing but I don't like the feeling of being oblidge to respond to them when in fact I don't even care about them. But this case I am into right now is different. He personally knew about me, and I have seen him as well in school before. It's just that I don't know him personally and I just thought he was my classmate. well it's been almost 6 years now we have not seen each other so I just thought maybe his looks just changed. Silly me, I did not confirm the first place, I just assumed it was him. Well still good, I learned it this early.. lol

Hi friend, good to hear about this, some times this kind of misunderstanding will happen in our life. At last you come to know about your mistake and you both have fun with this misunderstanding. I never faced this kind of incidents in my life

That's right. I was thinking maybe I just assumed it was him and I really did not confirm it in the first place so it turned out to be like this. Good thing I have come to know about it as of this time. It could have been more awkward if I will found out later and it might be so long already that I might offend him for real. Still Im thankful it turned out positively. Once you experienced this, you might be feeling the same way:) it's funny!

It's funny how he just went with the flow and replied to you even when he wasn't the person you were looking for! But that's a good thing though; now you know someone else better and perhaps this person could even be your next best friend. I do get messages from some unknown people sometimes, but when I do I normally just ignore them. If the other person is persistent and still messages me multiple times after the first one, then I will reply by mentioning that they have got the wrong number. I tend not to get into the conversation just in case the information the other person wants to get across to the intended recipient is urgent, and by pretending to be the recipient the urgent information may not end up with the intended recipient.

Oh he actually know me personally. Maybe he thought I knew him as well . But your right he can be one of my good friends. I usually do the same thing as well. I don't reply to just anyone else if I honestly don't know the person. It's just that the situation I have is a different one and if I would really to think it could be so horrible. This is really a crap but it's there.. it's been done. At least now I know.

You must be feeling weird all of a sudden after you learned the truth. Well I have this batchmate that just recently sent me a message through Facebook. He was asking if I remember him and said yes, even though I am not that sure. I just didn't want to offend him. But I was trying so hard to find his face in my memory coz he wasn't someone that i used to talk with during high school.

The initial feeling was like "ah-oh" but then I end up bursting into laughter. I honestly told him I thought he was someone else and he just laughed as well. Maybe that was the reason why the situation became lighter. Good thing he was not offended of what I though he was. Well you could have probably further asked, I mean it would be better so at least you'll get a chance to know him further.

I could not imagine how you manage to think of someone like him to be one of your classmates.We have just made our class reunion last year and was hoping to have this coming January.I am a member of class 1976 of University of Southern Philippines of Mabini Unit of Cebu City.You could just imagine how we have look before and today.It is very exiting to know my former classmates and our laughter from those years we were all in one class.

I don't know. As far as I can remember, he mentioned one time about uis being schoolmates. We were not closed when we were in highschool so I didn't think it was someone else. Coz I didn't think he will have the courage to get in touch when in the first place we were never classmates or something. So I conclude it was my classmate coz basically I didnt even know they got the same name so i assumed it was my classmate. maybe that's what happened.. wow.. been so long. That is exciting..I can't imagine either:) Im hoping we will going to have our reunion as well to personally meet this guy.

That happens in almost everyone. I have a friend who keep insisting that I know her friend. And many times I keep saying that I don't know the person she is referring with. I don't even understand why my friend keep insisting (many times already) that I know her friend and one time I told her- how come you know that I know your friend if all my life I can never recall that I know that person. I ask her to ask her friend if that person knows me- and when her friend told her that she doesn't know me either- that's the only time my friend stops asking me duh :xxx

This is definitely a rare situation. I just saw such incidents in movie. Sometimes cross connection happens also but doesn't take long to get resolved.
