    Hi everyone! I'm just looking for opinions really, on getting in touch with people you haven't seen in a while.

    I wasn't the most outgoing of students while at uni, but there were some people on my course I got along very well with, and sat with in lectures and seminars, and went out with a couple of times. I really regret not making the most of my time at uni, and the opportunities to make more friends and am wondering about getting in touch with a couple of the girls through Facebook.

    But would this appear odd? We occasionally 'like' each others posts/photos, used to write messages on each others walls occasionally. But I'd worry I'd look like a weirdo writing to them or sending a message as I haven't seen them in a while! If this happened you, would you think it strange, or see it as friendliness?

    Not at all, just email them asking how they are and how things have been.
    Gauge the response you get and go from there, is my best advice.

    Thank you! I'll do it tomorrow - send them a Facebook message, or write on their wall - not sure which would be better?

    Facebook message is more personal, I feel. It removes the element of seeming like you simply wish to prove to the world that you are making an effort to speak to somebody.

    I think you should send them a message, I've been in the same position with a few of my friends from uni and now we meet up on a regular basis. You've got nothing to worry about, its not weird at all, come on what's the worst that can happen eh?

    I think you should do it! Send them a message A girl I was friends with up in Aberdeen, where I used to live, sent me an email out of the blue when we'd barely spoken for about two years and I thought it was lovely. Now we talk plenty and she's even been down to visit- totally rekindled the friendship.
