Forgetting What Date Looks Like

Group Therapy: I Can't Remember What He Looks Like

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Let me start by saying I've always been horrible with faces.  I usually have to meet someone a few times before I can picture them in my memory.  Now onto my current situation: I was out last week and met a guy at a bar.  We chatted for a while, hit it off, and exchanged numbers.  We've been texting and made plans for this weekend.  The problem:  I can't remember what he looks like.  No idea.  

I remember his first name, what we talked about, even his wingman's name.  My usual bad memory was assisted by a few beers, and now I couldn't pick the guy out of a lineup.


I don't really want to cancel the date, but I don't know what else to do.  He wants to meet up and there's no way I'm going to be able to find him.  I have a bit of social anxiety and I don't think I could handle trying to figure out who he is on top of normal first date jitters.  Should I just cut my losses on this one?
