I've always fancied my ex-girlfriends mate and I haven't seen her for around about 2 1/2 years. I went travelling with my Ex and we split up on the way round.

We've been planning to meet while I've been down in London but I called her on Sunday to organise and she didn't answer her phone.

I expected her to call back and didn't want to be pushy so haven't made any contact since.

What is a good way to reopen this dialogue without looking like a loser?

Much appreciated
