i first dated this girl years ago nothing special. since then i want her back BADLY. she has a boyfriend (hes a huge jerk calls her names etc.) but i dont know if i should start flirting and use openers or skip that and go straight for flirting. its been 6yrs by the way, i know its pretty bad. its been no contact for about 1 week and she sees me as her best friend, not one of her best but i am her best friend. dont know if that helps me or hinders me. been stuck on this for awhile please help.
