I love events where people wear name tags.  It just makes life so much easier and less stressful!  I get so uncomfortable when I have to do introductions and I can’t remember the person’s name!!  Apparently, I am not alone!

A new study from Mirror found that the average person deals with 84 awkward social situations a year and the MOST awkward one is having to introduce someone when you can’t remember their name!  See, told you!

Here are the top ten:

1. Introducing someone when you don’t know their name. 43% of us have done it.

2. Bumping into someone you don’t like.

3. Being interviewed for a new job.

4. Meeting someone who used to date the person you’re currently with.

5. Networking for your job.

6. Meeting the parents for the first time.

7. Going on a first date.

8. Talking to someone you’re attracted to.

9. Meeting up with someone you met online.

10. Greeting a room full of people.  It’s not clear if that means walking into a room full of people, or having to meet and exchange names with a bunch of people at once.

A few more that made the top 20 were bumping into an ex (duh), meeting your idol or a celebrity (really? Stressful?),  dancing with someone, a first kiss, standing up in a packed train or bus and being told you have something in your teeth!!
