This week’s advice is brought to you by Mimi.

“How do I reconnect with an old friend? We haven’t spoken in nearly a year, and I’m not sure how to approach them. We still follow each other on social media.”

Keep in mind that there’s also a possibility that this person is thinking about you, too.  So, I say, send them a message and simply let them know that you have been thinking of them. Ask them how they’ve been and say that you miss their friendship. If they respond and express a similar sentiment, you can ask them if they would like to hang out again, since you haven’t seen each other in a while.

It’s true that this may feel like a risky move.  What if they don’t respond? What if they do respond, but don’t feel the same way?  My gut says that if you still follow each other on social media, then this person would be open to reconnecting.  But, in the case they aren’t, there really is no harm done.  As it stands now, you aren’t in each other’s lives so you only stand to gain something, not lose anything.

I wish you the best of luck and let us know how it turns out!
