Back in your college days, you texted her every single move you made. Whether that was “stealing your oatmeal ” or “declaring pre-med,” she knew exactly what you were up to and vice versa. But then you blinked, the years flew by, and now when you think about it, you haven’t spoken to her in—what?—six months? A year? Two years? You’ve lost count. Did you have a fight? A miscommunication blown out of proportion? Or maybe just a new cell phone plan that made long-distance calls too expensive?
Either way, so much has happened—pets, jobs, breakups, proposals—that you’re not even sure where to begin. For one, does she even want to reconnect with you? Before you fall down that well of insecurity, know this to be true: Chances are that your friend misses you, too, and would be more than happy to hear from you. So put on your butterfly costume: It’s time to get social—here’s how revive your relationship again.
