Re: Help with new Facebook friend in Alaska
Judging by the sounds of things, you did everything right in person (she probably wouldn't have wanted to escalate things further either because she was on duty). You should have no problems with shooting her a message and getting some sort of interaction started up.
Just a heads up, Facebook messaging game is just elegant texting game. For this girl, your best bet is to send her an opener that references back to a fun moment in the interaction that you two had. If any nicknames had developed in your time together, feel free to use it. Since you two have not seen each other in a bit, your goal is to get the engine re-started and running from the get-go. Best way to do that is to get her happy off of a memory of the two of you.
