Introduction Anxiety

Does anyone else out there get anxiety the moment you go to introduce one colleague/friend/acquaintance to another?

Sometimes I feel like defaulting to, "Everyone introduce yourselves!"  Cause it never fails that I get to that one person I have known longest and my mind blanks, even if just for a millisecond.  In fact, I often preempt others' introduction anxiety by jumping in and introducing myself.  Which I know is improper etiquette, but totally cool if I save someone from a heart attack.

I do the same thing -- I may have been friends with so-and-so for ages, but as soon as I try to introduce him or her to someone, I cannot remember the name! It's awful :P You are not alone!
