And which of them are correct? A girl had an accident, and she lost her memory(in the past), and she still hasn't retrieved her memories. This is fiction.

1- If you hadn't lost your memory, you would have remembered me.
2- If you didn't lose your memory, You would have remembered me.

Any better way to say it guys?

  • A hint: look for "conditional sentences" on the web. P.S. you can also use a double space instead of <br> Sep 23 '15 at 13:57
  • Is this a question of different level conditionals? Seems that "didn't lose" calls for "would remember", and "hadn't lost" calls for "would have remembered"... But I am not sure. Sep 23 '15 at 19:29

1 is good and I can't think of anything better. 2 isn't quite right, but something like it could work, "If you didn't lose your memory, you would remember me". For example:

"If you didn't lose your memory every time you got drunk, you would remember me when I came to the pub to drive you home!"
