How do you reconnect?

There was a girl who was my best friend in the 5th grade.  We were inseperable. (sp?) Then middle school started, and we didnt' see each other anymore.  I moved shortly after that. Fast forward 20 years.  She found me on facebook recently.  We've talked some, and it reminded me of how much I missed her. How do you reconnect? Is it possible to become close friends again after all those years? We live 6 hours away so its not like we can see each other often or have those daily interactions, kwim? What do you think?

 You start by saying Hi, how are you?!  Then the conversations will start.

Just keep sending her messages...tell her about your life, and ask her about hers

I just don't think friendships are ever the same, especially if you've had a fallen out and then get in touch after many years.  You can become friends, but I don't know about BFF's.


Seems like you really never had a fallen out, you just moved away...so, it could very well be possible.  Good luck!

I agree. Things may never be the same but it doesn't mean you still can't be friends at all.
