    Hey,

    It was their birthday 3 days ago, but I only just noticed on Facebook as I don’t use it often. Is it too late to send them a random belated birthday message?

    I am feeling quite guilty that I forgot! Especially as they messaged me when it was my birthday last month 😞

    Thanks

    3 days late is fine, especially if you aren't online much to be reminded that it is their birthday. Just sent them a belated birthday message and ask how they are and all that jazz. I'm sure they will appreciate the message :yep:

    i'd say if you're close and you feel like you do need to say it then it's not too late, just maybe explain you've been busy and you're really sorry?

    We’re not that close anymore, although we used to be. Maybe seeing each other around 6 times a year since going to different unis.
