    forget doing sth

    Can we say
    I forgot meeting him before.
    I remember to have met him before. ??

    A.J. Thomson & A.V. Martinet say in their A PRACTICAL ENGLISH GRAMMAR that we don't use forget doing sth in an affirmative sentence. Is that so? And can remember followed by to have done sth?

    Thank you.

    Re: forget doing sth

    It's possible to use the affirmative. I wouldn't use 'remember to have met'
