so im in my late 20s and want to be in a relationship / settle down. Im a demisexual asian and am interested in some girls but havent actually spoken to them in 12/13 years (used to be friends). The 1 im most interested in I recently got in contact with earlier this week when they sent me a message. I want to find out more about them but am ambivalent as a) they have lived abroad for a few years, b) I know their family. I want to get to know them, message them a bit but dont want to appear creepy. is there a way to do so (I was thinking about sending them a message today asking
Spoiler:

if they have seen the new borat film but dunno if i should as a) borat is divisive, and b) i dont know if its been banned in the country shes in.

. so yeah, how do I go about trying to find out if she's single / learn more about her (we were good friends back in the day but grew apart due to both of us entering dark phases of our lives around that point)

Do whatever you think you should do
just try and keep calm and try and keep the conversation low
just go for it and if they dont like you back that way well you could still be friends with her
just stay positive either way

Asking if people are single is usually best avoided as it presumptuous - suggesting that if they are they will want to go out with you. Just see if they express any interest in you.
