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.

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.

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 😉

Good luck!
