I would simply say.. "I'm sorry but I don't recall where we met.  Where did we meet?"

I usually say "Your face looks familiar..sorry, but where do I know you from?"  

**Generally it's someone I went to school with or my sisters did**  :)

I would be friendly to and then tell them their name was right there but I couldn't remember it, if I still didn't remember them after they
told me, I would excuse myself for a moment, and not go back.

obviously, if I don't remember them, we weren't close, so I and I have done this...tell them I have no clue who they are....I only have this problem when I go home to visit family.

I tell them I'm "blanking" or make some comment like "so yea, I'm still an airhead...I forgot your name."

"obviously, if I don't remember them, we weren't close,"

Exactly. This happens to me a lot though because I meet so many people through my husband's work - every time we get transferred there's a whole new set of people to meet, and then of course billets are staggered, so a year after we transfer in several more transfer out and are replaced. It can get exhausting if you try to keep high station or community morale and stay social. I never remember anyone. I usually say something like I posted above when I'm back home visiting family. When it's coasties and/or their spouses I just say "I'm awful with names, what was yours again?"
