I post this in a desperate attempt , i do not want to mess this up . I'll keep digging through this amazing forum in hope of finding material that touch on the subject, if you went through a similar stage and no matter if it worked or not in the long run for you , please share your experience
and if you know the exact material i need
A few months ago i moved back into my hometown
I recently got back in touch with one of my oldest best friend and she invited me over for diner the other day , we bonded again like i had never left . She told me she had long since changed her circle of friends and quickly became "BFF" with one of her workmate which happen to be an old flame of mine .
To put you in my shoes, I met her in high school as she and her girl friend were walking back home to said friend for a sleepover , they had to walk through a rather small but somewhat unsafe forest (2 sexual predators had been caught the previous year) so i volunteered to walk that extra mile or 2 just to make sure they'd get home safe , chitchatted her for a good half hour before getting her name , she started visiting me at my "hang out" spot during break/lunch time and after a while i managed to get her phone number. Called her the next day or two after school , she seemed really interested but sadly i was a teenager and only wanted to party and explore the inner of girls . The following weekend , the friends and I were invited to this party and a new girl came in the picture , I'll skip the detail of that misadventure haha
Fast forward 7-8 years later , she's a single mom with a 1+- year old baby , i'm okay with that , i think she's been single since around June-August . (from what her BFF/my friend told , there is no unresolved/hidden feeling towards the father aka she unconditionally love her baby but it was a mistake)
What is blocking me is i don't know How and Where i should start reconnecting with her .
Facebook , Face to Face or <your suggestion here>
If facebook , what msg do i send her , do i skip sending and just add to facebook , what if she don't remember me and simply choose to ignore friend request
in the event that she does , what do i start with
If face to face , i won't stalk her to the job , she's a pharmacist and works behind the counter , this leave next to no room to chat . I could convince my friend to invite her over but then how do i organize it ?
Maybe I'm over analyzing it but I DO NOT want to screw this up
