Basically, in september I met this girl on a trip but she lives in another county so I don't see her and I haven't seen her since that week.
We know eachother's names because we had badges on but it has been 7/8 months since we last had contact. Would it be weird if I followed her on instagram? One of the boys from my school follows a girl she was friends with on instagram, who also happens to be following this girl. Would this be okay and should I make a point of ensuring she knows how I found her?
When is it okay to follow/friend request somebody? Watch

You're overthinking it.

Follow her, just go for it.

This is actually a question I've been meaning to ask. Is it weird to just randomly follow/send a friend request to someone you recognise but have never spoken to?

There is no book which says some things are 'weird' and some are not. Just do it. If someone thinks its weird, why does it matter?

I agree. You have nothing to lose, worst case scenario she denies your friend request so what, no big deal. At the end of the day you won't be friends with her on here but you wouldn't have been either if you hadn't sent a friend request.
I already sent friend requests to people I didn't know in the past. Some of my best friendships started like that. Thanks to one girl in particular, that I barely knew and would never have seen again if I hadn't added her and spoken to her on FB, I met at least 20-30 people. We're 2 years later, they all became good friends and one of them was my girlfriend at some point. I didn't want to send the friend request at the beginning but I'm glad I did.Last edited by Conkerr; 03-06-2016 at 01:40.

on facebook = send a request it really doesn't matter
instagram - only do it in her presence, like be on your phone and say oh hey do you have insta and then follow her.
