Forgive? Always. Forget? Not often. There are too many lessons to be learned from others errors or mistreatments - I remember them to avoid bad situations in the future

For random people, I am far more likely to forget it than I am to forgive. Does that make any sense? I will move onward and eventually it will no longer be a sore spot for me, forgiveness prompts me to think that I may find myself at the mercy of the offender again. When I forget, I forget the person, the event, the feeling, etc. My response is typically relationally specific. The closer you are, the easier the pass.

I try to forgive and forget, but sometimes have trouble forgetting.
Forgive and forget - if something bothers me, it lasts about 5 minutes and then I am on to something else. Its like breakfast - I cant even remember what I had. If I let everything bother me, I would have had a stroke by now :)
Neither, I am more a "lesson learned" kind of gal.
I was just thinking about those ''second, third'' chances. I think, if someone betrayed or lied to you, took advantage of your trust, etc., they will do it again. People do not change. I do remember and try not to get 'deja vu'' with that person.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me!

Depends upon the situation. I can totally forgive, but certain types of errors will be kept in back burner, so that future encounters with same agent I am aware of the way they handled past deals. If someone was chronic liar, for example, I can forgive the lie, but I would question any further info from them.
