Question about Korean

What form of "you" would I use if I'm talking to somebody who I don't know the age nor the name of?
"너" would be too informal.
"당신" is only used between couples, right?
I read somewhere that "그쪽" works, but someone else said that 그쪽 is only used for people with a higher social status then you (e.g. boss, teacher etc.)
Is there anything I can use?

The sentence I want to say is:
"저는 몇 개월 전에 (그쪽)에게 노트를 섰을 때 실수했어요."
And the other one is:
(그쪽)을 봤고 많이 걱정했어요.

Is it also possible to just erase the 그쪽+을/를 in both sentences or would that sound weird?
