Ok, so I have been bored today at work and since I was thinking of an old friend over the past weekend, I figured I’d just try to look her up. Well, guess what! I found her and a current address. Sooo I guess what I want to know is, would it be odd to just send her a note to reconnect or is it just too strange? Would you go ahead do it? Or turn it around and if you were the recipient, how would you feel about getting a letter from someone you haven’t seen in forever (and a day)? I tried to turn it around and I thought to myself, that’d be really cool to get back in touch! But I wanted some opinions..

Do you facebook? I have found that I have reconnected with a lot of people there. I think it would be nice to get a note in the mail, but possibly a little strange as my first thought would be “why didn’t she just look me up on facebook?” But then again, not everyone uses FB.

Yeah I thought about that route. But I don’t use it. Heh. Maybe I should just conform and get on. LOL

I might find it as strange, especially if I had a facebook. If you never go on facebook and dont like it, then a note in the mail would be ok.
Did you lose contact on good terms? There are a few friends I lost contact with because we were on bad terms and if they contacted me I would be seriously annoyed. If they were people I lost contact with because we are in different places now, then I would be happy to get a card! I think it depends on why you lost touch in the first place.

@soyjoy222: We just lost touch for life reasons, nothing bad. We just both moved to different parts of the country.
I’ll entertain the FB route first, I guess it wouldn’t kill me!
thanks for the input!

I see nothing wrong with being a little traditional. If you include a little like like “I don’t use facebook” then it is totally fine. I know if I got a letter from a long lost friend I would be excited.

I personally love snail mail. 🙂

I think you could do snail mail, rather than creating an entire facebook account over that. I’d mention in the note that you’ve wanted to reconnect but since you don;t have facebook/her email address you weren’t sure how to, until you stumbled across her address.

My fiancé is actually an old friend that I decided I wanted to call and hang out again (after maybe 8 years, even if his house was a 5-minute walk from mine). So I just took the phone and called him. And just so you know, we stopped talking right before high shcool and I phoned him while I was an University student. I guess the “stopped talking” was just really a childish decision at that time haha.
So we hung out again, had fun, flirted (for almost a year – so many memories!), etc etc. We’re now getting married in September, and I couldn’t be any happier!
So I’m telling you, if you want to get back in touch with someone, do so. The worst answer you could get is a “no”. Otherwise, you can never know what this renewed friendship could bring you 😉
