What to say to someone you haven't spoken to for four years? Watch
Now they have, I don't know what to do. Four years ago we were really good mates (we went to the same primary school, but not the same secondary). I stopped contact with her though, because I was really depressed and couldn't be bothered going out anymore.
We had so much in common, I'd love to speak to her again, maybe even try to get things back to the way they were (although I accept she's probably moved on a lot in four years!). So much has happened in four years, I want to find out what she's been up to, there's so much to tell and to hear, so much to catch up on ... if she wants to. She only lives two roads away from me as well.
What do you think I should do? I want to text her, but I feel a bit awkward. What would I say?
I was in a similar position a few years ago (sadly, it didn't work out as well as I'd hoped, but that's a different story). Basically, I started with expected "Hi, I know we haven't spoken in a while", then said things about I how regretted we hadn't kept in touch (and why), why they were important to me in the past, why I wanted to talk to them again and then left the door open for them to make the next move so I didn't pressurise them. But obviously that's a lot to put in one text, so I'd probably write an email/ letter instead.
Hmm that is a bit long though! Our friendship didn't end badly or anything, we just lost contact. I don't want to overwhelm her, but at the same time I don't want to completely brush over the fact that we haven't spoken for years
But i just started sixth form and had no idea that he was attending sixth form here and i was waiting to get picked up after sixth form and he was looking at me and i really want to go and talk to him but i dont know what to say
They will appreciate your efforts.
